I can raise my left eyebrow on its own, but only my left.
The Agnelli family would like a word with you.
They are not Italians. I'm not sure they are actually humans.
(As a native Torinese and a staunch Juventino, I had the utmost love for the Avvocato. The new generation, not so much.)
I cannot raise any of them. I'd really like to be able to do it.
I can not.
How many of us can write with both hands?
I can, but I don't know if it really counts. I'm right handed and can write with my left, but the legibility of that script is much, much worse than that penned by my right hand. Oh, you can read it...but it looks like I have bad tremors or something.
Most musicians can write legibly with both hands.
I can write legibly on my off-hand, but in mirror image.
My left hand is virtually useless. Is there an antonym of ambidextrous? Solodextrous? Well, that's me.
I can write with both hands. I was born ambidextrous, though years of school tried to drive it out of me, so my script from my left hand is a bit worse than my right hand.
It's all that sinister dexterity.
In school, they showed us a movie about a woman without arms, who wrote with her feet. They showed her in a grocery store, filling out a check with a pen in her bare foot.
I could see that being the case for players of keyboard instruments or of classical/fingerstyle guitar, say, but I don't think it's true of most musicians. I could scrawl a few barely-legible characters using my left hand, but to call it writing would be a stretch.
Several, but perhaps not quite what you were looking for.
Lulz. Is it a common second meaning in English? It's absent in Italian.
I kinda like Andrea.
The Elkann boys however... man... John pretends to care but really doesn't give a damn about Juve so he can get lost. And Lapo...
I can write with both hands. When I'm at the whiteboard, kids are always amused at the fact that I can do that... 'hey wasn't he writing with the other hand minutes ago?'
just for the lulz!
Many of Lapo's outfits make me raise an eyebrow; does that count?
(mind you, I have a sneaking liking for his Rosso Corsa suit. There's a pic floating around with him wearing it in front of his Ferrari collection. Lucky git. )
Lapo's outfits are very hit and miss. Sometimes he pulls off the modern dandy look quite well but often he just looks totally ridiculous.
I can raise each eyebrow independently. I can also move my eyes in two different directions at once.
More misses than hits in my opinion. And I say this as someone who is very fond of quirky suits. He totally lacks the "effortless effort" that is the mark of true elegance. He puts a lot of work in picking his outfits, which are clearly intended to surprise and impress an audience, instead of being simply a manifestation of his style and personality.
But now we are going into my personal theory of aesthetics, which is definitively outside the bounds of this thread.
Separate names with a comma.
