If you want to see "Dumb and Dumber" check out this video of some teen who stole a car, then robbed a bank, and then posted an unknowing confession on YouTube?! :rolleyes:
Actually, the reason for this post is not to mock idiots like this, but to ask "Why is all of the text in her 'flash-cards' backwards??" (Is she Dyslexic, or is the video just messed up?!)

Looks like she's had a tough trot. Pretty sad, really.

I'd say "Fetal Alcohol (or Drug) Syndrome"... (She looks like she has the personality of a child.) Sad.
Anyways, Ralph, what's up with all of the backwards placards?
Is it her or is it the video?

More likely to be the video has been mirrored. If she was dyslexic then maybe one or 2 letters within each word would be transposed or backwards but not the entire sentence.
Also if you look at the pad, she writes from the spine outwards - as a natural left to right language writer would - suggesting that she is writing normally.

You mean she was holding up the notepad in a mirror and videotaping herself via a mirror reflection?
If so, why would anyone do that? :-/

Why? Probably because the whole thing was a hoax. And if not it was just for an interesting visual effect.

Has anyone ever told you that you often make comments that don't apply and are "Way out in Left Field"?
What are you talking about???

A question about how she reversed the writing might be useful, but trying to work out why someone in a loopy state did something or other seems a waste of time to me.

Um, I asked...
Why is all of the text in her 'flash-cards' backwards??
It was implied that I was asking WHAT would make the Text appear like that...
I also said...
Is she Dyslexic, or is the video just messed up?!
Let's not split hairs, here, Ralph... :rolleyes:

OK, with most video cameras you can set the record mode to either mirror what it sees or record directly what it sees.
Photo Booth on the Mac does exactly that BY DEFAULT, try it and see.

He was answering the question you asked the post above his.

So what is the purpose of the "mirror" option you mention? :-/
P.S. Nice to see a real person!!

It wasn't a "hoax" on TV when the County Sheriff escorted her in handcuffs to the police cruiser...
ralphm — 2012-12-08T01:26:56-05:00 — #15
I think this thread has kind of covered the possibilities.
doubledee — 2012-12-08T18:40:06-05:00 — #16
Not entirely, Ralph...
I wanna see you post your picture like spikeZ did, so I can see if YOU are backwards!!! :lol: :lol:
(I have my suspicions!!)
ralphm — 2012-12-08T18:52:28-05:00 — #17
We are all backwards down here, but also up side down ... which is a real pain, as everything has to be Photoshopped to death ...
