No... The Earth is spherical and gravity pulls them in to the centre of the Earth, so they stand exactly as we do. They may seem 'upside down' to us, but they think we're 'upside down' as well.

There is no escaping Earth. HaHa. The Earth is spinning so fast, we all should be dizzy.

We are at the other end of the planet, would we repel each other?

G;day Jackyl,

Thank you for your question.

Due to gravity, we are firmly attached to the planet.

Besides it looks different if you turn the map upside down.
