Did you go flush?

Nothing too exciting going on here today. I just saw this picture and it reminded me of the other day when we were at Scott's parents. For some reason we started talking about what direction the water went down the drain here and in our hemisphere. 


Scott had to get up and go flush the toilet to prove his point, although I didn't follow after him to make sure he was telling the truth. The stupid things we talk about! (But I did just go flush the toilet while I was thinking about it and see which way it went and the answer is counter clockwise). 

Now that I've looked it up I guess he wasn't totally correct about it being the Coriolis Force. Learn something new everyday. Thanks Google!

And you might ask WHY my husband knows this random thing called the Coriolis Force? From The Simpsons of course. I keep telling him he needs to go Jeopardy or something. I swear his head is so full of useless information. I won't even let my friends try to play trivia games with him unless they've been warned that he WILL win!

Well down here the water goes down CLOCKWISE! The total opposite to you. I can't imagine the water going down the other way!

The way the water goes down ya drains is due to gravitational force and the magnetic fields of the North and South Poles ... well that's we thought!

It's amazing knowing tons of useless facts. I wish I had the memory to remember dates, and rediculous things. I just talk like I know what the hell I'm talking about :-) It works for me.
