    I agree with the others about Chiropractors saying it's bad for
    back if you keep a wallet in your back pocket.

    See link for further info.

    Another level

    I don't know.....I'm still a little skeptical on the effects. Particularly for heavier guys; the body fat would totally absorb the wallet and make any spinal curvature issues a real stretch.

    Right hander/Right rear pocket here

    My wallet distorting my spine is the least of my spinal problems. I lift boxes of tile all day.

    I'm not big on fading. I carry everything outside of my jeans in my jacket or backpack

    Right and right. The only exception is if I have on a jacket (usually a leather motorcycle one) with a zipped pocket. I'm very obsessive compulsive about my wallet, making sure it's there. Riding down the freeway at 80mph I'll have a little display that would make Nomar Garciaparra blush. [​IMG]

    I always put my wallet in my front fight pocket. Putting stuff in your back pockets is a great way for screwing up your back.
    You must carry some seriously heavy stuff in your wallet.

    right hand left pocket. My dad told me that I will need my right hand to punch pickpockets and left to grab hold of the wallet. No lie. He told me this when I was 12

    I know to use an ultra-thin wallet

    Yeah, you Red Mooners are asking for it down the road.

    I roll empty pockets: 9 in my right, .45 in my other hand.

    Wouldn't it just be smarter to carry your wallet somewhere else?

    Just for the oddly fascinated.. 18 of 112 voters are left handed, about 16%, which is a bit higher than average (10%).
