    What a kick (a kick upside the head, that is).

    What a hoot!

    Nice! I can’t wait to read that one.

    @Mark Taylor: I half expected your comment to come in upside down.

    You can read the text in Windows XP if you press Ctrl-Alt-Down Arrow. (Press Ctr-Alt-Up Arrow to revert.)

    Actually, it’s a bit surprising how quickly you can almost read it.

    However, this is a bit trickier:

    LOL

    Or

    if you prefer. :-)

    Wonderful, Wayne. Thank you.

    Ahhh….Stephen. Good point. But, does the Kindle do it? If so, then Mark Taylor could just publish the NLT to the Kindle and radical people could have it just the way they want it.

    Pressing ‘Print screen’, pasting to Paint and rotating 90° does it for me.

    IPA: Is there anything you can’t say upside down?

  11. Posted April 2, 2010 at 2:30 am | Permalink

    Just today my students commented on my odd skill in reading upside down as fast as I do right side up – so at first I didn’t notice anything funny about this post. ;-)

    Very good. I am a much slower reader backwards and upside down, yet it did not take me more than a few seconds to understand the joke and be able to read it.

    I hear Topeka’s committed to a large purchase of these bibles.

    Sue: I would imagine one picks up that skill in teaching. It’s sort of a sink-or-fly (!) thing about being a teacher, isn’t it?

  16. Posted April 3, 2010 at 2:22 am | Permalink

    Perhaps we all do it. I’ll have to ask.

    Kind of funny that Acts 17:6 is quoted from KJV to describe the hoped-for impact of the NLT!

    I used to sell Life Insurance. I had to learn to read upside down to read proposals across the table. Anyone can learn to do it!

    Good one. I was getting all excited, thinking, OK, 1996, 2004, 2007, now a 2010 version! You had me.
