here's an odd question:

i have a tall glass of milk, and i drop a tablespoon full of ovaltine (which is a powder, if you don't know) into it. when the ovaltine dissolves, it spins clockwise.

why is that, exactly?

i've finally made some decent progress on my projects despite feeling like i've been on the verge of death physically and emotionally lately, and the fact that my scanner can not blow a 3x4 picture up to a 12x15 picture at 300dpi. i crashed my computer at least 5 times before i gave up and decided i'll just pay the school a visit later.

i'm seriously afraid i've given myself an ulcer. that would be just great.

this song is great. "your feet are dry with the ashes from dead babies", indeed.

it does it every time though! and i don't always drop it in the same way. i've dumped it out form the right and left side of the spoon as well as the front.

it's creepy.

Try using your left hand instead of the right and see what happens. Also be sure to use your left hand to pour the milk. When you pour in the milk there is probably a rotation in the glass even if you can't see it on the surface. You'd have to leave the milk sitting there for a long time under very controlled conditions to eliminate the rotation induced when it was poured in the glass.

i agree with this theory

if you waited long enough after you poured in the milk, it wouldnt spin at all.

i usually pour the milk with my left hand and put the ovaltine in with my right. this time i poured it with my right andput the ovaltine in with my left, and it did the same thing. clockwise.

above the equater things spin clockwise, below its counter clockwise.

like if you go to chile and flush a toilet it spins the other way.

hi ~ i somehow stumbled on your epcot post & then to this post wondering why your ovaltine spins clock-wise ~ this was once explained by a scientist in a radio interview as the result of the magnetic influence of the North Pole and ~ get this ~ in the Southern Hemisphere water swirls counter-clockwise!!! and if you look at Hubble images you'll see that swirling galaxies give birth to star clusters and result in planet-formation & hence you & i ~ hope this doesn't make your head spin! In any case, you're a natural writer ~ ok if i add you?
