    What is the opposite of "inside out"?

    There seems to be a bit of debate about this, no one seems to give the same answer. To me, logically, the answer is either "outside out" or "inside in". Any comments or other options? What is the correct way to say it?

    If my shirt is on correctly, it's on ...?

    IMHO there is no opposite. You don't say it...it's assumed.

    For instance you say, "Your shirt is on inside out"

    The opposite is ..."Your shirt is on." and you really wouldn't say it if the persons shirt was worn normally.

    It's like saying "Look at that non-pregnant girl!" Unless you were in a convention of expectant mothers you wouldn't say it that way.

    But what do I know. My mother spoke New Hampshire.

    "outside in" and "inside out" are the same thing (your shirt is on wrong in both cases). So essentially "outside in" is a synonym for "inside out". I guess there is no antonym.

    ACDriver: with respect to your sig: "Do you ever wonder where the safest place is to sit in an airplane? Have you ever heard of an airplane "backing" into a mountain?"

    Did you see the movie "Alive"? The nose was the only part that made it from what I remember. Also, if the pilot has any control at all they are likely to set the tail down first. I don't think there is any safe place if a plane is crashing... you just hold on tight and hope you get lucky.
