The Drain

Here is a photo of my friends on a recent evangelistic mission trip to Africa.
They saw the mighty hand of God work wonders! So exciting!

There is something that is troubling me, however.

Note: One is standing in the Northern Hemisphere and one is standing in the Southern Hemisphere.

If each of them had a sink beside them and poured a glass of water down the drain, the sink in the Northern Hemisphere would drain counter-clockwise. The sink in the Southern Hemisphere would drain clockwise.

If there was a sink sitting EXACTLY on the equator…what direction would the water drain?

These are the things that I think about.

I am here to keep you sane. Now let's discuss your thoughts and the process of rational thought. I have meds....

Love ya. ;)

theoretically, the water should go straight down, but not possible.
happy pondering...

Who would you guess that I am ? said...

It is just so funny that you bring this up. Because you're not going to believe this but I actually have gone to an equator on a U.S Geological grant to test an hypotenuse regarding this very matter and don't you want to know the results.

It's so very simple. The water actually did not drain. That's right and as a result my experiment has saved the whales and eradicated three known types of famine and sun spots on both equators. Plus as an aside it prolongs the onset of acne until after your first kiss and stops itching.

It's called hydroencephilgigititis, I know it's a big word but it still don't rank with schizophrenia.....that phroid had it gowin-non man. I tell you he was smart!

But I'll make it simple you see it blocks the gravitation receptors from crossing the equatorial synapses.

If you want to know the rest,... hey! buy the bizarre
