Yeah, yeah...  rub it in   >:(  But then, your toilets and drains spin backwards, don't they?  Coriolis effect or something weird like that....  Never been south of the Equator.  Gotta do that one day.  I need to add that to my bucket list.

Not sure if it has anything to do with the toilets spinning backward but "Coriolus" is a mushroom used in Asian herbal remedys ...

You guys got me looking things up again...

The Coriolis effect is most apparent in the path of an object moving longitudinally. On the Earth an object that moves along a north-south path, or longitudinal line, will undergo apparent deflection to the right in the Northern Hemisphere and to the left in the Southern Hemisphere.

If any ones interested.

Backward spinning toilets? Might need an exorcists.  ???

I've got a dog that chases his tail (clockwise) all day long. If I take him to Australia, will he chase it in the other direction? ???

What about dogs who live in houses where there are only digital clocks?

I do find it interesting that the 'top of the world' is the north pole. This is a learned effect in all of us. Austrailia is 'down under'. My brain cannot think otherwise. In the physical world, there is no orientation of up and down, top and bottom.

When we start to look clearly at the many beliefs and understandings and perceptions and assumptions that we have about life, we begin to see that these things are truly without foundation.

Being MLK day, "race" is a good example. There is no distinction between human beings that creates this phenomenon we call 'race'. "Race' is a man made phenomenon. There is not a single genetic or physical detail that is unique to one group of people. Yes there are regional and environmental differences, but there is nothing totally unique to one group of people that cannot be found in any other group.

It is exactly like the difference between Texans and Oregonians. Texas and Oregon are artificially created distinctions.

Time is a a concept that fascinates me. Totally man made. Who decides there should be 24 hours in a day or 60 min in an hour. Who says we should count our age by how many times the earth rotates around the sun. And that  Feb 29 should occur once every 4 years.

And who gave the powers that be, authority, to reset the clocks twice a year.

Does anyone really think God made the universe in seven days. I think science has proven that to be impossible. The Bible was written by man and translated by old King James. The seven day theory was stuck in there so followers could have some relevance as to what was going on. Do you think God really cares about such a trivial thing as days, hours or minutes.

And what about the whole Mayan calendar thing. Is every one ready for Dec 21st.

There cannot be a crisis next week. My schedule is already full.

No, it was Steve Irwin, Nicole Kidman, Russell Crowe, and Nicole's amazingly talented guitarist husband whose name I always forget.  ;)

Actually, I think it was good ol' Martin Luther who was the first to translate the Bible from the language of the Catholic church, Latin, into the language of the people of Germany.  The Reform movement quickly spread to England.  It was considered heresey to possess a Bible in anything other than Latin, a crime punishable by death (burning at the stake).  Way to spread "the word", huh?  We've come a long way, baby.

Mike, Sickle Cell Anemia is a disease. There is no disease that is found in only one 'race'.

from the net:
Sickle cell anemia is more common in people whose families are from Saudi Arabia, India, Caribbean islands, Mediterranean countries, South or Central America, or Africa. In the United States, most who suffer from sickle cell are African Americans.

'White folks' get this disease also.

My origin point was that it is truly amazing how much stuff we believe to be true but it just is not true!

Bill Clinton had the new millenium celebration at the beginning of 2000. The beginning of the new millennium was 2001. Good old Bill never missed an opportunity to break out the cigars.

Christopher Columbus never landed on what is today known as North American. He landed in the Caribbean Islands.

He also had 4 ships, not 3. The 4th ship fell over the edge of the world. Actually, there were only 3 ships and most people throughout time believed that the world was round, including Chris Columbus. The Ancient Greeks even believed the earth was round.

Who would've thought that a cold day in Florida would generate this many replies?

Gene's comments about race reminded me of the sign that hung over the main street of my town when I was a kid:

"The blackest land" referred to the soil. "The whitest people" is self explanatory, although it really wasn't true (Somebody had to pick all the cotton that the black soil produced).
The Greenville Hotel in the picture is where my family stayed when we first hit town in '62. It was a dump even then.
Just around the corner from this scene was a USO club, which today houses the #1 upholstery shop in Greenville ;)
