Yes, but it is very difficult. Because the Coriolis force is so
one must go to extraordinary lengths to detect it. But, it has
done. You cannot use an ordinary sink for it lacks the requisite
circular symmetry: its oval shape and off-center drain render any
results suspect. Those who have succeeded used a smooth pan of
one meter in diameter with a very small hole in the center. A

Mute point. Let me rephrase my propostion.
Since the Coriolis force, or "effect" causes hurricanes
to spiral one way in the North American continent, and
the opposite way in the South American continent, and...
My further studies have also revealed the Coriolis force
being displayed in the spiral growth patterns of specific
eggs, and, humans as organic entities are possibly
and probably affected by this magnetic reality which
leads me to speculate or inquire, could there be any
assbackwards behavioural traits in Aussies?
Which side of the road do they drive on?
