    When you look in a mirror, why are the words backwards left-to-right but not upside down?

    Standing on your head will fix that if you can read upside-down.

    Try this in the mirror:
    żuʍop ǝpısdn ʇou ʇnq ʇɥƃıɹ-oʇ-ʇɟǝl spɹɐʍʞɔɐq spɹoʍ ǝɥʇ ǝɹɐ ʎɥʍ 'ɹoɹɹıɯ ɐ uı ʞool noʎ uǝɥM
    or this:
    Mɥǝu ʎon looʞ ıu ɐ ɯıɹɹoɹ' ʍɥʎ ɐɹǝ ʇɥǝ ʍoɹps qɐɔʞʍɐɹps lǝɟʇ-ʇo-ɹıƃɥʇ qnʇ uoʇ ndsıpǝ poʍuż

    Your local library has literally thousands of books to read.

    I've been catching up on Asimov of late.

    The Currents of Space was a real page turner.

    I tried standing on my head at work in front of the full-length mirror. The writing on my shirt was still backwards, but not upside down...

    I did a poll around the office, and was surprised at the number of people who had never noticed.

    Have any of them ever wondered why "Ambulance" is printed backwards on the front of an ambulance?
