Maly says

Dan says

If it is noon the “n” would be a “u”… Wouldn’t it? uoou.

@Jerry Good question. That’s why the answer has it in all capital letters, NOON, because capital N is the same upside down.


Ron says

NOON is still wrong because upside down ‘N’ would be ‘I/I’


Dan says
June 13, 2017 @ 10:24

Nope. All you have to do is flip your head or screen around to see you’re wrong.

There are plenty of palindromes, but not nearly as many are the same upside down.

suns would work??


Dan says
March 19, 2019 @ 09:00

suns backwards is snus. All qualifying words have to be palindromes.


Mailee Peters says
March 27, 2019 @ 20:41

racecar and redder are both ones that can be flipped backwards and are the same word with no capitals


Dan says
March 28, 2019 @ 09:12

But neither are the same upside down.

Since 1899 It is approximately set to 16.38 kilograms (36.11 pounds). … For example, a 24 kg kettlebell is commonly referred to as “one-and-half pood kettlebell” (polutorapudovaya girya).
