The sun has finally showed up, so I’m just about to take my roller skates, and go out skating with my beloved one. But before I do, here is another optical illusion of the day. If you remember, we helped you learn Chinese recently, and perhaps with our help you even learned Cyrillic. Not to mention how few years ago we helped you gain knowledge of Japanese language. This time it’s my sacred duty to reveal the mystery behind Arabic letters. Most of you perceive Arabic as some mumbo-jumbo, where letters appear very strange. Well, to tell you the truth it isn’t so hard at all. The secret not so many people know, is that the language has much in common with English language. Try tilting your head for 180 degrees, and then read what this picture below says. That’s it – now you can officially read another language. Remember this tip next time you’re visiting far East. It may come in handy. What does this sign say?

  36. K-milk says:

    HAHA, Get back to work!!
    This is just the kind of motivation i needed today!!
    What a coincidence.
    Nice one.

  37. Ramy says:

    this is definitely not the best of the languages…maybe because i am used to seeing arabic writing and this doesnt quite look like arabic…

    arabic letters are ALWAYS attached when written in words. and the letters tend to be more upwards as in above the line (on an imaginary lined paper)

    still cool i guess if you have no clue what arabic looks like

    it really annoys me that like half the people who have commented have mentioned that they are first to comment.. when they are actually not ?!
    why is it a big deal if you are first anyway :|

  40. Andrés says:

    instead of breaking your neck tilting it like a contorsionist, try ctrl+alt+down arrow – it will tilt the screen, not your head! (then get thigs back to work with ctrl+alt+up arrow) — not many people knows about this trick!

  42. Ellen says:

    good one. thanx

  43. Strawberry says:

    that’s a goood idea!

  44. DανιD says:

    “get back to work”

    Two things: firstly, if I could tilt my head 180 degrees I’d either be a type of bird, or able to kill myself, secondly I saw it right away.. Still kinda cool I guess..

  45. Anonymous says:

    XD im so dumb, I thought it said Get Back To Attack XD

    But now when I take a second look I see it say Get Back To Work

  46. Kaylee says:

    its creative, but I knew it as soon as i saw it. I guess its because I used to write upside down, but idk. It certainly is creative.

  47. Mini says:

    hehehe thats pretty cool… :)

  48. Psycho-Desgns says:

    Its extremely hard for me since I know Arabic, I just kept seeing the Arabic words and nothing else.

    For those interested, thats not real Arabic, they are random letters of Arabic alphabets upside down but not words. Except for the W in “Work” thats actually “Allah” upside down. Lets just hope no one will get offended and pissy about it.

  49. Anonymous says:

    oh shit, I thought it said “get back to attack” until I read everyone’s posts say “get back to work”…

  50. Franchesca says:

    ” get back to work”
    lol that’s a good one

  51. rockforlife96 says:

    Dude, Vurdlak, as soon as everyone noticed this you probably lost like half your audience that came to your site during work today… which is probably 98 percent of the us

  52. Anonymous says:

    It’s arabic but letters are up side down. It would be better if you turn it 180. It would work for both Arabic and English.
    The arabic letters have no meaning except the letter “W” it means “for GOD” in Arabic.

  53. Egyptian Man says:

    I like it a lot. I can actually read arabic(I’m Egyptian)and it doesn’t look tike mumbo jumbo to me

  54. Anonymous says:

    its a nice illusion = ) but no they are not real words its just some letters put next to each other = )

  55. Anonymous says:

    actually the “W” doesn’t read as Allah, to spell Allah you need one more letter. I think

  75. anonymous says:

    hmm,nahh…not really.that’s not really appropriate arabic letters actually.stop thinking of that. arabic letters were arabic letters.very special letters actually.not the other way around.it is not so mumbo-jumbo or whatsoever,if u learn it smartly,no more mumbo-jumbo.and stop twisting that muslim god name.even not enough one letter

  82. rachhel says:

    whats wrong with you? Are you stupid enough to believe that people don’t know that its turned upside down? and in arabic, except for the W (God), nothing makes sense. Arabic is arabic, and english is english.
