    Dunno who the author is, but that sounds like the kind of stuff comedian Steven Wright would say.

    Much money, but an apparent inability to interpret Roman numerals:

    I think this is a case of using the front camera on a cell phone which inverts picture.

    It's not inverted left-right, it's rotated 180 deg to upside down. The wrong camera doesn't do that.

    What I want to know is who the heck sits in the house wearing a bathrobe and a baby in heels like that. Sitting on the back of the couch so she can extend her perfect legs. This is a staged photo with a model, and probably a doll, and it's the set dresser who was either clueless or careless.

    I'm still not seeing a clock. I'll go back and look again for a while.

    Looks like a classic Instagram photo to me. "Look at my perfect life! I can be impractically glamorous while taking care of a child!"

    She looks familiar. Anyone know who that is? "Baby G" might be a clue.

    Nah, I obviously didn't know her then. Nice photos. She looks a lot like someone else who must actually be "famous" or I wouldn't recognize her.

    The Roman numeral at the 6 o'clock position of her clock is "8".

    8 if read like it was right-side-up. If read like the entire clock is inverted, it reads 12.

    Only if read vertically. The numbers look like their bases are radially inward.
    So a) the decorator doesn't know roman and guessed wrong or b) it's some cerebral ploy to make people ponder the relative nature of time.

    And then I found my picture which did make me laugh, so I posted it. That's what the threads about after all

    No, it's six.

    As someone noted, it is just hung upside down.

    Saw this reply somewhere:

    "Never argue with a flat earther - it's like playing chess with a pigeon. It'll knock the chess pieces over, sh*t on the board and then fly off to tell its flock how it won the game!"

    Also applies to Moon Hoaxers and various conspiracy nuts.

    That's similar to "Never wrestle with a pig; you both get dirty but the pig likes it."

    I ran across that Apollo-11 launched on a Saturn-IB blanket again. But it ain't funny. Really a shame, if they'd used a Saturn-V I'm sure some space fans would have bought it because otherwise it's nicely done (though of course some clueless people are likely buying it anyway).
