    I thought that was really good stuff, but I get all kinds of "nerdy" with that kinda stuff. Like the toilets going counter CCW in the southern hemisphere?

    I think I will try to make one for my kids.
    Maybe wrap the wire around a broomstick or something to get the shape.

    Not sure if my sarcasm was detected there. The water going down toilets is not affected by the earths rotation. And the copper train will go which ever way you put it in.
