The Necessity Of Mathematics
Blake Stacey posted an essay on The Necessity of Mathematics which I feel is worth reading, even, or even especially, if you aren't particularly mathematically inclined.

i've always been able to read upside-down and mirror-image (backwards takes a little more concentration). it came in handy when i was in school, because i was always getting sent to the principal's office or the psychiatrist's office or the guidance office, and they'd always have a bunch of paperwork about me on their desks. they never did figure out that i could read what was on the papers ;-)

but i don't confuse mirror-image letters; i seem to auto-correct for orientation and context.
