wait what why is inkscape negating all of my y values??? this would explain why nothing is coming out quite right. I corrected for it early on without thinking, but now that I look at the actual xml it's definitely inkscape flipping the values. no wonder math keeps getting weird

apparently the svg spec says the origin is the top left, and therefore positive y points down. inkscape renders accordingly, but then lies to you about y coordinates in the ui and pretends negatives are positive and positives are negative

computers were a mistake.
