I've "drawn" here a building with a backdrop of a night sky:

┛━━┗╋╋╋╋╋╋╋╋╋╋╋╋
┃┛━┏╋╋╋╋╋╋╋╋╋╋╋╋
┛┏┓━┻━━━┻┗┛┗┛┻━━┗
┃┛━┗┫━━┃┃┓┏┃┃┫━┗┃
┃┃╋┃┃┃━━┣┓┏┫┏┫━┏┃
┓┏╋┓┳━━━┳━━┳━┳━━┏

However, can you tell me what the people inside are like?

If we modify the drawing by

turning each character upside down, we get this:
┌──┐╋╋╋╋╋╋╋╋╋╋╋╋
│┌─┘╋╋╋╋╋╋╋╋╋╋╋╋
┌┘└─┬───┬┐┌┐┌┬──┐
│┌─┐├──││└┘││├─┐│
││╋│││──┤└┘├┘├─┘│
└┘╋└┴───┴──┴─┴──┘

And we can see clearly that

the people there are ʎzɐɹɔ -- er, I mean crazy!

    $\begingroup$ Equivalently by doing the same thing to rows and columns instead of characters, we get a clearer picture. $\endgroup$
