@your new dad , there is no way anyone can think of anything to reply to that
@your new dad , No
@your new dad , I laughed too long.
@The Big Hodge, that's what I'm saying. Look carefully at the shadows, not just of the cat, but of the lips of the stairs themselves.
@The Big Hodge, left
@RMB, the stairs ledges would prove its going down.
@PleaseBelieveMe, that's what I said
@RMB, that just proves the light source is coming from downstairs, if this were up, like I think it is. It would create those shadows
@RMB, who's to say that the stairs doesn't have a lip on the top?
@I shjt you not, I can see that, but I'm also assuming no sane person would place the ledge/lip of a stair on the top face of it. That's a huge safety hazard.... If the light source was coming from downstairs, then to create that shadow the lip would have to protrude above the step
@Gerggle, you could be right, but I'm assuming that would be a bit of a tripping hazard. I've never seen a set of stairs that had a significant lip like that on top
@RMB, I just can't get past that looking like a floor. And those look like walls. I'm trying hard to picture the top of stairs where the side walls end like that.
@Gerggle, literally every person who has seen a staircase ever.
@I shjt you not, you know, now that I look at that part I can see it. Regardless of whether or not it's going up or down, I think we can agree this person's camera sucks and his house wasn't built to code.
@RMB, don't talk about my house okay. I built it myself.
@Snakes, RMB mentioned your crappy camera, too :)
@I shjt you not, shhhh, I didn't know he was eavesdropping. I don't want him to bite me
@The Big Hodge, it can be seen as both since there's very little cues as to which direction.
@RMB, the lips of the stairs usually cover the same area on both the top and side of the stair
@Assassinator2399, that's usually a guard to protect the edges of the stairs from impact, it could be one of those, but to me it looks like a decorative lip, which would only be on the side
@RMB, true it could be either. This is just one of those pictures taken at the perfect angle and we'll never know what's right.
@Assassinator2399, i think snakes needs to fess up
@PleaseBelieveMe, exactly, I hear people talking a out the cats tail and shadows and stuff... The ledges people, the stair ledges...
@The Big Hodge, how about you just look at the cat? It's movement shows it's going down. A cat would walk up the stairs differently.
@RMB, I don't think i will since you insulted my calmer and my house........YOUD BETTER NOT WALK BY THOSE BUSHES TONIGHT IF YOU KNOW WHATS BEST! Ssssssss
@Snakes, *camera not calmer*
@Snakes, insulted your calmer what?
@I shjt you not, my calmer inner cobra. He's a bjtch when he comes out.
@Snakes, I'll show you MY inner cobra ;)
Looks gold and white to me
@Major Tom, what are you kidding, its black and blue!
It's down you can see the wood prices
@Reginald, Thank god, someone else here pays attention to detail.
Looks down. Stairs don't have lips like that on the place you step, but they do on the vertical panels, making the camera looking up a flight of stairs and the cat coming down. The paw placement is cause the cat is mid step coming down the stairs.
Trick question, the cat is standing still
@I shjt you not, down!
@I shjt you not, for sure up.
@I shjt you not, up. Unless the cat came out of a solid wall of carpet at the top.
@Brave Sir Robin, I shjt you not has spoken! How dare you contradict the all powerful
@I shjt you not, look at the shadows
@Cpzombie, the light source is coming from downstairs? That looks like a floor to me, not a wall on the second floor
@I shjt you not, down because the bricks on the sides of the steps and the lip of the front of the steps
@I shjt you not, there's also a lip on the stairs which if what you said is right, that's a stair case from hell.
@I shjt you not, YOU'RE TEARING THIS FAMILY APART
@HauntingFettucini, nah, it's just in good fun. Those people downvoting are the ones tearing us apart. Cheers
@Brave Sir Robin, left, right, left, right, up, up, 🔺,▪,️🔴,🔴,▪️. *jet spawns*
@I shjt you not, why didn't you do that laugh thing you're supposed to do the laugh thing
@does not get it, if he is going up then that's the bottom
@Maturity, yes. If that was the top, the cat would have walked out of a solid wall of carpet.
Haha you can't fool me it's a picture he's not going anywhere
@Fast legged, down down, in an earlier round
Not this shjt again
Up. Don't look at the shadows, you can manipulate those. Look at its paw placement, you can't manipulate physics. Unless the cat is walking on its claws this cat is going up stairs.
@AceWolf456, or it is mid step
@AceWolf456, clever girl
@AceWolf456, where do you see its claws? And I've never seen a step with a lip on the part you step on.
@AceWolf456, look at the stair.. Now tell me where do you find stair that bulk out on the stepping part?
Sideboards go to the top of stairs so you don't scuff the wall. The cat is going downstairs.
Down. If you look at the stairs carefully, the end frame - y bit, it's facing the "camera". Those usually tend to point down.
Up. If it was going down, based on the angles of the stairs, the opening at the end of the stairs behind the cat would be at the top of the staircase, and it'd be making like a doorway leaning 45 degrees backwards. It makes more sense to see it as a door way at the bottom of stairs.
But is it blue and black or white and gold?
Blue and black!
Has to be down, every cat I've seen going up runs like usain bolt, but leisurely trotts(not the walrus) back down. Good day to you if you get ze reference
Down, at the edge you can see slightly different texture that wouldnt make sence going up
Why not both?
@Kriztofer, why not zoidberg?
Is this comment getting voted up or down?
I can tell from the architecture of the stairs that the cat, is in fact, going downwards
The cat is a dress
Based on the walling beside the stairs, and the orientation of the stairs themselves, I'm confident it's a cat. (And going down)
@Lettuce man, five.
Look at the wall. You can tell he is going down because of the smooth part there.
Up if shoddy construction, down if the stairs were finished properly
Blue and black?
HE'S GOING FOR YOUR SOUL
@flopplop, I like your response the best.
White and gold.
Why not both? *cue Mexican music*
I'm just saying those are steep stairs wether the cat is going up or down
Why not both? (Plays Mexican music and gets sucked into a black hole)
I give up. both
The cats going up, if you look at the top of the stairs (from our perspective) it could either be the floor or a pathway to hogwarts
Down because there is a shadow under the rim
Gravity cat not amused
M night shamalon twist he's going down backwards
Its up its paws shadow gives it away
Choosing between up or down, I'm gonna choose or.
White and gold
You can judge by the thumbs up or down votes
It's the dress all over again
Down. Who would design stairs like that if they went up.
I thought for a fact it was down, then I thought "maybe it's going up" and now I'm fvcked in the head.
You can clearly see the carpet floor at the bottom. It's going up
