this is such crap, nothing to do with the Coriolis effect, when he pours the water in the left side the water spins clockwise, when he pours it in the right it spins anti clockwise, it looks like it was standing ready on the equator, which could have given the water time to settle, so that it drained straight out, nothing to do with its position on the earth.....

So your idiot school teacher when you were 8 is brighter than my meteorology instructor? This is fake. I have personally seen two sinks, side-by-side, draining opposite ways at about 51 degrees North, when I worked in an hotel.

The Coriolis effect does not influence bodies of fluid that size significantly. Near the equator the Coriolis effect is weak anyway, and immediately either side of the equator it is the same direction, clockwise as the radius of the Earth is NOT greatest at the Equator.

I worry for your future.

OMFG!PLEASE tell me you guys are trolling.
I honestly thought every schoolkid learned this stuff at about year 8. I know I did.
It IS caused by the coriolis effect.I suddenly feel worried for the future.

The best part of the video is when the girl trips over the equator line.
