try this.............

place both hands flat on the table in front of you....

take a close look at your index finger nail on either hand....

does the nail of one finger rotate inwards toward the middle finger slightly more than that of the other hand? ****

I have this theory about twisting on wire nuts over the years.....

****depending on righty or lefty
