    You get the prize tool. Great analysis. I didn't even bother responding to tru since his post was out of here but you have it down. That was pure insight however tru is right in that we are going down the drain with a lot of suction noise to boot (so to speak). Thank you very much

    True conservatives and patriots have had enough and through the tea party take back the GOP and will take this country back in the correct direction

    The states that have always carried the democrats and voted in RHINO's have fared so poorly in the last 6 years primarily the last 18 months they are going to boot anyone that is not a fiscal conservative.
    With the exception of Arizona and 20 million bucks.

    Thanks Buddy!

    I should probably add:

    In England, things drain pretty much the same as they drain here. But they drain on the wrong side.

    Drain lines are way too small for Coriolis effect to influence them. The major influence on drains is the condition of the piping and the attitude of the surface of the water being drained. So, in effect, there is always an outside influence that makes the Coriolis effect ineffectual for drain line directions.

    Coriolis effect of the spinning Earth not of the water down the pipe. And that does not have a great influence on the direction of spin. What I was saying it is that other conditions such as the geometry of the drain has much more influence than whether it is located north or south of the equator.

    So I haven't check this post in a while to see if all of us are going to Hell in a hand basket and what do I see.....discussion on how water is draining! One never knows what directions the minds on this board will take, do one?

    I ask you:

    How do you know where the nation is heading, if you do not even know how water drains.

    Answer that.

    You have nailed me!

    I shall study the wise ways of The draining science afoot before I spew forth my community chairman opinion again.

    Does "ma la pew" mean that I smell? You didn't have to tell everyone, you could have sent me a PM.

    Kind of what we were talking about. Speaking of, does anyone know what direction tornado's spin? We do not get them often enough for a proper statistical count. Mind you with increased global warming...
