    How does fluid go down the drain where you live?

    After some testing I concluded that here the flow is like this:
    Code:
     ->
    ^  |
    |  v
     <-
    52°21′N 04°52′E

    I'll just answer for everyone.

    Counter-Clockwise in the Northern Hemisphere.

    Clockwise in the Southern Hemisphere.



    Or did you just want everyone to say in which hemisphere they live?

    I think I saw somewhere that this was an urban myth, and that the direction water spiraled as it drained wasn't affected by the geographical location.

    dude, you do know that toilets have water jets that determine the direction...doesnt really matter which way, itll go down. If you really want a test put pepper or something on water in a sink or bottle of still water, then drain it. Ill give you a hint though - hemisphere isn't going to affect it.
    If you are having trouble and need help...or just bored and want somebody to talk to, feel free to message me on any of the IM clients listed in the profile .

    The term you may be searching for is "Coriolis effect" (and it is a myth).
