  1. In fact, the plate can not lie down, except to stand upside down.

    With a shoe, it is easier if it is on the sole – then it stands, if it is on its side – then it lies.�

    Well, answering the question, this is essentially a metaphor, addressed to the phrase “lies across the road”, that is, it interferes, is not in its place.

    But if you keep your shoes on the table and your plates on the floor, I'm sure you're strong enough not to worry about making the right turn. =)

  2. I think that in a particular situation, the correct turn depends on the location of the object and our definition of its top/bottom. And the definition of its top/bottom depends on the most stable location of the object on the ground (sorry for the complexity of the presentation).
    On the table is a plate, on the floor – is�and on the edge, again, стоит is.
    � � Other item: Tape recorder. It will stand either on the table or on the floor, but only if it is not lying upside down.. that is, the bottom.
    � �However, this only applies to inanimate objects. A bird, for example, will sit anywhere (unless it is flying).

    In mammals, for example, the correct rotation depends on the number of points of contact with the ground and what the creature touches the ground with.�
    That is:
    � � If a person touches the ground only with their limbs (2-4 points), then they are standing. If his legs and, excuse me, his ass, then he sits. And if the limbs and body-then lies.
    � � Other mammal: cat. Similarly: If the paws (4 points) – then stands. If the paws and ass, then sitting. And if the paws and body-then lies.

    Respect if you've mastered this boring article.
