Why is it that in american cartoons they always turn the pages of a book from Left to right? Which is opisit from what we do in life (right to left).

Don't say such blasphemous things! You're starting to make me think out of my small social and cultural box - and we know what that means, curiosity, free will, and lots of head aches.

Damn that Peter Parker is a hottie.

well, Dorian, or I like to call you "The Topic Creator"...
When they take a picture of the drawings, the camera reverses it. So, that means things on the left will be on the right.

I understand that SCU, but! Why not draw it backwards when they draw it so, that when they take a picture of it, it comes out correct.


You silly 800 year old robot!

If they were to draw stuff backwards, wouldn't stuff like letters on signs look backwards? Or vice versa if they drew them normally, and took the pics.

Who knew this could be so complicated. .. crash.gif
