Flip It

The Internet is full of interesting things.  For example, if you want to see your writing from a new angle, the website Flip Text lets you turn your words upside down.  To use it, you type in your text (or copy and paste) and push the "Flip Text" Button. The words appear upside down and the order of the letters is reversed, but they lose their capitalization.

Here's a sample.  The "About Me" element on the right sidebar of the blog says:
Welcome! Thanks for visiting my blog. I live in Manchester, Missouri (a suburb of St. Louis) with my husband and work at a mall Customer Service desk. Our three boys are all grown--two of them live out of town, and one is temporarily back home. We also have two cats who keep us amused with their antics.
When I flipped it I got:
˙sɔıʇuɐ ɹıǝɥʇ ɥʇıʍ pǝsnɯɐ sn dǝǝʞ oɥʍ sʇɐɔ oʍʇ ǝʌɐɥ osןɐ ǝʍ ˙ǝɯoɥ ʞɔɐq ʎןıɹɐɹodɯǝʇ sı ǝuo puɐ 'uʍoʇ ɟo ʇno ǝʌıן ɯǝɥʇ ɟo oʍʇ--uʍoɹb ןןɐ ǝɹɐ sʎoq ǝǝɹɥʇ ɹno ˙ʞsǝp ǝɔıʌɹǝs ɹǝɯoʇsnɔ ןןɐɯ ɐ ʇɐ ʞɹoʍ puɐ puɐqsnɥ ʎɯ ɥʇıʍ (sınoן ˙ʇs ɟo qɹnqns ɐ) ıɹnossıɯ 'ɹǝʇsǝɥɔuɐɯ uı ǝʌıן ı ˙boןq ʎɯ buıʇısıʌ ɹoɟ sʞuɐɥʇ ¡ǝɯoɔןǝʍ
I'm not exactly sure when I'd have a real-life use for flipped text, but it's good to know I can access it if I need it.

  2. Lol, it actually looks like it's in a different language.

    1. You're right! I hadn't thought about that.
