It'd be no different than saying I think Minneapolis is underrated and very cool, but the weather was so cold when I was there. Waaaah waaah waaah!
Nope, left-handed.

I looked both up and they both mean the same thing, but it seems that backhanded is the more popular nomenclature.

You attempted to correct me, but there was nothing to correct.

Not witty, just stating the truth.

So was I about that Milwaukee smell and if you didn't just accept the compliment (backhanded or not) in the 1st place you wouldn't be defending yourself right now. Besides, for the compliment to be truly "lefthanded" I'd have to not be sincere about the compliment, but I am because I think Milly-wau-kay (Algonquin for "the good land") is not half bad and is underrepresented.

I feel the need to do it because on every good thread you come in and cause 2 pages full of stupid arguments that get off topic.
