Title: How does your toilet flush?
Post by: mlk256 on September 06, 2008, 06:23:20 AM
This surely must deserve a thread of its own:
according to RET, the earth's sphericality and rotation combine to make toilets and drains spin clockwise in the northern hemisphere and counterclockwise in the southern hemisphere. How could this opposite rotation happen on a FE with no hemispheres?

go flush your toilet,

It's a myth,

It's supposed to the the coriolis effect, but that is not strong enough to effect your crapper. 

It does effect big systems like tropical storms.

There's already a thread on this somewhere.
