Should my knuckle be facing the ceiling? Or not.knuckles

Yes. It puts your wrist directly under the bar instead of being torqued backward.

Pretty much this. Watch youtube videos of backyard fights for proof, the guys with a limp wrist and a bitch slap punch get beat, the guy coming in straight at your face wins.
