Note that some of us can easily read mirror writing. Even upside-down mirror writing.

This task is still quite possible. It's just not as easy as it might first appear.

Although the text could have been written a bit more legibly, i think it can be quite obvious what this is intended to say once the image is mirrored.

I figured playing around with Lewis Carroll lore was appropriate when dealing with mirrors. The image of the rabbit is still backwards because the rabbit has already gone through the mirror, so it is as if the text is written on the other side.

It took me and Remy The Ghost a while to figure out how to make this backwards, but after a while, we finally got it; turns out, Remy has MS Paint on his computer. He never even knew. This picture represents my character and the falsity GlaDOS commit...

I wrote out the first four letters of the word "symmetry" drawing them so that when the edge of the paper is held against a mirror, the other half of the word appears. Spelling out the rest of the word.

Just over a week ago my best friend was in an accident that cost him his life at 19. He was so full of life and lived everyday as if there was no tomorrow. He wasn't one to take anything for granted or leave anything behind. As you can see on my wris...

I was sitting around thinking about what I do in front of mirrors when it occurred to me, unless I'm getting ready in the morning, the only time I ever look into a mirror is for self-council. I evaluate myself and my personality. Everything from posi...

Requires a mirror to be understood, eh? I thought it might be a little too obvious if I just wrote something backwards, so I started there. I drew out my alphabet and tried to find the lines of symmetry in them. Cool! Now what? Make a word! I was nev...
