thisdaydreamer: ski9600: FAKE

/the sun is there

I agree. If she has been seeing things "upside down" all of her life, she would have adjusted to it long ago. I might have believed it if it had happened in adulthood.


My memory is that we all see things upside-down but the brain flips the image.  Maybe her problem is that her brain can't flip the image.

well as one of the dyslexic minority, to me it seems possible. I am able to read perfectly well upside down and backwards. I see everything just fine, but the letters are readable to me no matter what the orientation. What really freaks people out is I can read almost as fast upside down as right side up.

Errm there should be no significant change in speed for anyone to do that even with no practice. You will see bigger changes in mirrored text or upside down + mirrored text

FAKE.

But then, to experience her world in Windows 7, press CTRL-ALT-DownArrow

Then press CTRL-ALT-UpArrow to fix that.

Wouldn't she be afraid to fall into the sky? And if the sky is "down", what does she see when she looks down?

Slaxl: To those saying this is fake because it would be normal to her... it is normal to her, the issue is that she has to have things upside down that we have the right way up. So she can't read internets without turning the monitor upside down, which is how i'm guessing they learned she has this ailment.


If she had it since birth, how did she learn to read?

The whole thing stinks.  I feel trolled just for posting in this thread.

Reading upside-down is certainly possible.  My mother taught me to read with letter-shaped cookies.  They could be in any position, I learned to recognize them in any position.  As a kid I could read upside-down as fast as I could read right-side up.  A lack of practice means I don't do it nearly as fast as normal reading anymore but I still have no problem with it.  If someone is writing something for me to read I just tell them to keep the paper comfortable for them.

Where I do run into a problem is with math.  I can read the number upside-down without difficulty but I can't handle multi-digit multiplication or even carries in addition--I mix up left and right too badly in that situation and I put my mental digits in the wrong column.
