'Cause life is sweet when you hit the main line
I sleep with the sun and I rise with the moon
And I feel alright with my needle and spoon

Great questions Marc.

Question # 3

The Coriolis effect is probably the most scientific excuse humans have for staring into toilet bowls. The effect makes objects on the Earth curve when they should go straight, and it’s why some people insist that toilet bowls flush in the opposite direction on the southern hemisphere than in the northern hemisphere.

But if you’ve tried to make that happen when visiting Australia, you’ve probably been disappointed. So is the Coriolis effect real? Very. But toilets will lie to you every time.

I knew I would drag you out! :grinning:
