When all the people were being baptized, Jesus was baptized too. And as he was praying, heaven was opened and the Holy Spirit descended on him in bodily form like a dove. And a voice came from heaven: “You are my Son, whom I love; with you I am well pleased.”
A while ago, Ian and I sat around talking about biking, and I mentioned that I only feel comfortable walking or mounting my bike from the left side. In fact, when I have to walk on the right side of my bike, I do so extraordinarily clumsily; heaven forbid that I have to mount my bike from the right, because I doubt I could even get my leg over without catching my foot on something.
Interestingly, my left-handed husband noted that he preferred to walk and mount his bike on the right. We immediately hypothesized that bike walking and mounting is related to handedness, thus:
H1: A person will prefer to walk and/or mount a bike on the opposite side from their dominant hand.
Then we moved on to a different topic, and I forgot about our discussion until this morning.
Exiting the train, I paused to mount my bike (from the left) and noticed that a fellow bicyclist also mounting his bike came from the right. I asked if he was, by any chance, left-handed. Surprised, he confirmed my supposition and asked how I knew. Triumphantly I told him, “By which side of your bike you got on.” However, with an n of only three, I can hardly say our hypothesis has strong support.
So this is your chance to help me out: Which is your dominant hand, and which from side do you prefer to get on your bike?
