Because gravity doesn't pull youdown, it pulls you towards the earth.

if you walked a long way down your street (a VERY long way, to the other end of your country.) would you suddenly be walking diagonally? or on your thighs? no. because you are not being pulled towards the bottom of the earth, but to the center. it's quite hard to explain to someone who doesn't already know. We (yes, we,I'm Australian) don't feel upside-down because as you come to our side of the world, the direction your feet face rotates so that your feet always face the center of the earth.

And in fact, you did make up the north is up and south is down, because whoever said north was up? you could draw a map with south on top of the map and it would be just as accurate.

Why don't people who live in the southern hemisphere feel upside down?

Gravity pulls all things toward the center of the earth-- as a result, everyone on earth only feels upside down if their head is pointing toward the ground or they are high/drunk on something. North and South are just directions given to indicate the intersection of earth and its axes at the extreme edges of the earth. North is considered "up" simply because more people live in the northern hemisphere and most people like to think that they are "up." In fact, people in the southern hemisphere, especially Australia, have maps that we would consider upside-down, where north is down and south is up.
