True - but that depend on the size of your bath / toilet / whatever :)

But of more importance to me, it does affect the rotation of winds around high pressure systems.

As a side note, it has often been said that people lost in the desert tend to walk around in circles. Would that rotation direction also be coriolis determined?

    Of course not. Which way you circle in the desert depends on which leg is shorter.

    *sheesh* I thought everyone knew that! :-)
