arg..... uhm.... well the topic states itself.....
let me see...................... okay i'll start...

Have you ever thought if mirrors lie??...

well... i did.... once... this thought popped out from nowhere when i've noticed that my friends says that i'm uhm... i guess..... (lets just get straight to the point... )... good looking... ... well... thats what they say but... i dont really believe it coz everytime i look at the mirror i kinda hate my face,... ... i dont actually know the reason why but i do.... and if thats how i view myself,.. how come my friends view me oppositely than my thought..... ....

ah... kinda confusing huh??.... (well of course)
okay.... i wonder.,... through my personal experience..(just like what i told you earlier) i wonder if mirrors lie??..... since i dont really agree with my friends about my appearance... ...

and.. what if mirrors really lied... man..... i wonder what would be the reaction among people.... .... but in the end,.. i think mirrors dont really lie,.. it just reflect your looks,... but usually in the movies,..(specially scary ones)... when ever one person view their faces on the mirror,.. they have different appearance than the real ones... ... ehehe...(man i'm very imaginative.. )... oh well... just asking about your opinions about this...... so what about you... how will you react on this topic??...O.o

The True Mirror:

For all of our history, when people think they see themselves, they are always seeing themselves reflected backwards. Recently, with cameras and video, they can get a sense of what they look like forwards, but its a static or non-eye to eye view. However, as it turns out, the backward images and person we see in a mirror is profoundly different from what is real. The backwardsness distorts not just our features, but the information in our faces and personalities as well. No wonder we see ourselves differently than others see us!

A True Mirror is surprisingly more than an amazing novelty. We are excited to promote as a new source of self-discovery and enlightenment.

The introspective use of the True Mirror can be an important boost towards your own self-awareness and greater self-esteem. This happens by authenticating your own actual image and expressions as you exist in real life, and as your are seen by everyone else.

In contrast, the incorrect view seen in a traditional mirror can be major source of self-doubt and self-criticism - simply because it is not the "real you" when your eyes meet in the mirror. How can you understand yourself, your emotions and your expressions when there is such distortion?

We've discovered some fascinating aspects of human nature that arise when people see their true appearance. Because it is very challenging to confront new information about one's self, the responses are usually very dramatic...some love it, some hate it, and some will not even look! But we feel its just a matter of time to become familiar with the new image, and most people will begin to prefer the new look. Its natural, after all.

I don't think mirrors lie but the reflection changes in different environments

Considering I look at from a more technical perspective, mirrors would lie if they didn't reflect light properly. Or technically your eyes are lying to you because your eye may not be picking up what is being reflected in the mirror properly.
