Good eye Doc. That's first thing I looked at also, after I got over being dizzy for a sec. Can you imagine getting out of one of those cars? I bet that would feel weird.

Here's the caption for the photo...

As is clearly evident by this image, this crooked house could give the Leaning Tower of Pisa a run for its money any day of the week. Truth though, is much simpler than this fiction. Håkan Dahlström took this shot at one of San Fracisco’s hills, turning the camera so that it came at level with the road, not the house.

The problem, since you claim to be from Detroit was the weight of all the non-US built cars parked in front of your building.

Like Gordon Ramsey does on Kitchen Nightmares, my crew went to Detroit and fixed your building. You also have a natural hill in Detroit you did not before and because of it you are five extra feet from the evil people of Canada. I hope the bridge to Windsor can take the strain. The one from around SeaTac into Vancouver did not fare well lest week.

Anyhow here is the after and before shot. Not one animal was harmed in our work. I have to use the right leg of a mouse a bit though.
