I regularly confuse east and west
Fuck it, pretty much everything else this week has been tenuous.

what is that?
There are loads people who have trouble this, and not just east/west, but left/right as well.

I never really understood how you could confuse them - I mean, it's not exactly a huge amount of information to memorise, and they're always the same way round - it's like getting up and down mixed up.

There's probably a really interesting explanation for the phenomena. I literally cannot think of a single reason why east/west should be harder to remember than north/south - after all, the only way to flip east/west on a map is to flip north/south as well.

I blame mirrors.
Up and down are always the same but right and left change depending on the perspective. The US pic below does a great job of explaining East and West.

Maybe he's an American?

Still, it's their own fault for living on the wrong side of the world.

I most certainly am not American
That may well be the most offensive thing ever said to me in my 5 years on 'the board'.
