    This is something I noticed as I've been watching Seven Days over again. When Parker is shown reading a book/magazine he seems to have it upside down in some cases. For example, when his evil side was readig the Hitler book, it was right side up, but in the HAARP epsiode, he is reading The Great Escape upside down. Now, I know that part of that could be because of dyslexia, and that's how people read, but in that case it wouldn't explain why he reads both ways. What I am guessing is that since he was intelligence, he was taught how to read upside down to see things on people's desks and read them and so he does that sometimes with his books to keep in practice. I could be wrong, but it's a theory.

    That makes a lot of sense. Maybe I should practice reading upside down...

    Is he left handed?  Left handers, myself included, find it easy to read upside down.  I can also mirror write almost as fast as I can write the normal way.

    I never noticed it. I suppose the books could be blank inside and hence him not knowing the book was upside down!

    I think the deal with the Haarp Attack episode was that we was trying to yank Ramsey's chain a little. He knew eventualy Ramsey would have to check the monitor in his room, it would have been no fun for Parker if there hadn't been something to bring Ramsey on a search for him while very angry.

    I've always been able to read upside down, I don't think it's exactly a special skill

    Inoticed the same thing and always put it off to be one of Frank's idiosyncrasies too. At first I thought it may have been an error, but upon further thought I came to the same conclusion as you.
