Notice anything odd about the above photos (other than they are upside down and of me)?
Okay, now let's turn them right side up and see if we notice anything odd now (other than they are photos of me)?
If you are observant, you will notice that the photo on the right, although right side up, has the eyes and mouth upside down. Yet when viewed side by side and upside down, you probably didn't notice the difference.
Okay, what do we learn from this? Well, not much, but it should teach you that if you are looking at things upside down, you might not be getting the complete picture.
Let's try another example:
Unless you have been living under a rock, you should recognize this upside down image as the Mona Lisa by Leonardo Da Vinci. Now let's turn Mona right side up:
So the next time you are out out at a bar hoisting a few with your friends and you sort of lose your balance and fall off from your bar stool. Just keep in mind that your upside down perspective of that amazingly attractive person you see across the room may be skewed. Beer gogs don't help either.
This has been a public service of Dizgraceland where we like to keep things on the up and up.
I think I have pretty much made my point here.
