Rear view mirror problems...

Ill be straight forward here... me and my girl got things a little heated up in my car and everything got fogged.... i defogged my windshield and stuff but my rear view mirrior was turned... so i fixed it but it didnt appear fogged. When looking in it i can see normal but i also see a light clear reflection of other things. I can see out my back window but i see a second image of the back seats.... its really weird.... any reasons why this would be happening?

Well it's actually a phenomenon that happens when two people...ahem... you know...in a focus. You've opened a wormhole to another dimension that is actually being channeled through your rear view mirror. What you're seeing is your back seat, but in another, slightly different, dimension. My advice, call John Malkovich. He's good with possessed cars.

No, but really, not a clue.

^^ good advice...yah push that little button thing or whatever you want to call it underneath the mirror. It's on the bottom in the middle.

i think its just the two sets of mirros in side the mirror. i hope that make sense. there are really two sets of mirrors, thats where the dim no dim comes from. i think you are just looking at it in the right angle so that you see the refection in the dim mirror faintly. its nothing to be worried about i would just move the mirror and change the angle slightly and that should fix the problem.

Yup, move the mirror around while watching for the glass to change.
