Two-Fer Tuesday Teaser: Why does a mirror reverse left-to-right but not top-to-bottom?

Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Comments: Any similarity between the cover art and turn-of-the-millenium Hayao Miyazaki heroines is purely coincidental.

Published 2009

Actually, that cover IS a classical work of art!I would touch it without protective gloves.I've seen worse. Far, far, worse.Interesting, but I would still read it in public.Middlng: Neither awful nor awfully goodWould not like to be seen reading that!Awful... just awful...That belongs in a gold-lame picture frame!Gah... my eyes are burning! Feels so good!Good Show Sir! (Average: 2.54 out of 10)

    Either she’s into self-harm or it’s difficult to put on your lipstick upside down. Whichever way, I’m uncomfortable.

  5. JuanPaul Says:

    Thank you, blurb, for reminding me what reading a book is like.

  6. RachelJ Says:

    So I’m hoping the one with the upside-down, reversed text is the regular cover…

    Gilded sewers would raise the exhilaration level by at least 25%, maybe more.

    Hair: “I need tree fitty.”

    Mirrors don’t reverse right-left. If you look in a mirror, the reflection of your right hand is still on your right. Mirrors reverse front-back: when you look in a mirror, if you’re facing north, your reflection is facing south. But if you raise your right hand to point east, your reflection also points east. (Excerpt from my geometric optics lecture, I teach physics.)

    It’s fascinating that she can hang upside-down and yet not get flushed and slightly disoriented from blood rushing to the head.

  13. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @Anna: why do you think she has slashed cheeks? To reduce the pressure, of course!

  14. Tat Wood Says:

    Unless her hair’s prehensile it’s going to be a big liability in hand-to-hand arborial combat.

    Some teenagers will do ANYTHING to get attention.
