Man i`m glad I live in England,the hills in Dorset may be a pain in the ass but at least it`s physically possible to walk up them LOL

Whoever said it`s fake because of the angle it`s not,they`re standing on a raised and flat car lot because a car would slip even with it`s brakes on if it had to be parked on a hill like that everyday,so the house looks slanted because of the hill slope compared to the flat of the car park

TheFezzik is right. That`s a steep street, but not the steepest there. I only live about 45 mins away from S.F., and yeah...I hate parking or driving anywhere there in a stick shift. I`ve had to parallel park twice on the steep hills around Market St. Ugh...

the road in this particular image isn`t that steep (although I do not dispute claims that there are far steeper roads in this city). I say this after driving around Mahone Bay (and other parts of Nova Scotia) earlier this year. Nearly a 45 degree angle (steeper on some roads) straight into the bay. I shudder to think of driving there in winter.

mychemx666... It`s called parking. Thats what people do with their cars when they are not in use. And if you mean that they are level, or even with the bottom of the picture, the camera was tilted to show the extremity of the angles of the streets.

thank you heartagram86. Sure it might seem like an optical illusion at first, but GOSH. Some people went as far as to suggest they build houses sideways??? Lord.

That would absolutely suck, Lorah. Actually.. not only would it suck, it would blow at the same time... as Bart Simpson has said.

Wow, it took long enough to get people set straight. Look, even if you guys don`t know how to tilt your heads to the side to see the picture correctly, use your logic; why would houses lean that much to the side in a place where EARTHQUAKES are a big threat? I`ll have you know that any building that is considered unsafe (as in, it can`t survive a quake) is destroyed. I know who lives in that house, and I`ll be sure to let him know. :) It`s all great fun.

I noticed now that I typoed that. "You`re" and all... But you know, we all slip from here to there. I dont claim to be superior in my intelligence, I just thought it was obvious.

Also, it takes about 10 seconds to rotate the picture... so its not like I had oodles of hours in which I needed to waste so I rotated a picture.

Some people have to much time on their hands. The obvious response I know bt it clearly had to be said. Just give it a rest.

heartagram86, I commend you on making that picture as proof for those who are just too drating stupid to realize it on their own...

However, saying "YOUR STUPID" somewhat takes away from your claims of superior intelligence. ;)

If the right edge of the picture is the vertical axis, the street is close to what... 65... maybe 70 degrees in the form of an angle?

Okay... I made an account just to do this. I swear some of the people on here have the IQ of a bucket full of bricks... and for those of you that don`t quite understand that. YOUR STUPID. Here is the picture as it would look if the camera wasn`t angled.

I have never been to San Francisco, nor have I ever seen any images of San Francisco.

However, I can say with certainty that the roads there are not at all steep...in fact the city is quite flat.

Therefore, this photo is a complete and utter fake.

man, people are retards. the camera is lined up with the road, which is slanted, which makes the houses look slanted.
Why does everybody here automatically think everything is fake:
"Thats obviously fake, You can see the houses leanin to one side"
Stupid.

I think it`s clear that they don`t build houses on an angle anywhere, so it`s safe to assume that you can judge the angle of the road in comparison to the angle of the houses.

Duh.

It seems like a couple of people think the houses are leaning. The houses are standing straight, the picture was just rotated so the road is flat. It shows how much of an angle the houses have to be to the road, because the roads are so steep.

Looks like they just put the camera level with the street. It`s really that simple...and it shows the angel of the street a lot better. *shrug*

Was the camera just tilted to take the image or the image was just rotated and cropped? Cuz that makes it a little harder to understand the true proportions of the road.

"Even if the roads are that steep I don`t think the houses would lean that way. how do you build a house like that? they would probably build it so that it stands straight, just like the parking lot in the foreground. But I`ve never been there so I could be wrong."

GAGAGAGA!

You, ma`am, are a retard.
