    Left, right, left, right

    Well, there's the superstition that one who has their left hand as their dominate hand are evil and being controlled by the devil.

    What's your favorite symbol associated with mythology?

    Yin and Yang, I've always loved that symbol even before I knew what it meant as a child. Its a perect representation of balance. I also like the Phoenix and Dragon, they are also used as a "Yin and Yang".
