Re: 19
I always wondered about the water thing. I was always taught since I was a kid that toilet bowls in Australia spin the other way going down. I always knew that if there is an outside influence, the water can go either way, I guess the effect only applys to large masses, like hurricanes?

I too had protest to some of the answers.

Fans, can spin either direction, I know I repair them. They even sell reversible motors, depending on the rotation.

I don't know if 5 lug nuts is standard anymore, since a lot of cars are smaller, and have only 4 lug nuts. Most kids these days might be inclined to answer 4.

I see where your teachers went wrong - toilets flush up down there in the Antipodes!

Yeah, I've actually gone around testing and found no real preferred direction.

Re: 19
The great toilet bowl tester!!

I am a plumber, and there are toilet bowls that don't even swirl at all.
Like a jet flush.

20 and 5/6ths
and what's one color between friends? :D

On the dwarves: my first wife woke me up one night with that question, she couldn't get to sleep ... until she asked me. I made a point to learn them in the interest of marital fidelity.

as for all the complaints ... :rolleyes:
