Australia and science below the equator

It is not true that the toilet-bowl vortex is reversed below the equator--that is pure nonsense. bounce

However, everything else is either upside-down or backwards.

The people closest to the equator are northerners, and the ones closest to the pole are southerners. Shocked

And the ocean around the pole, instead of Arctic, is called Anti-Arctic, which in the aboriginal language, means "No bears here--only penguins."


Australians make their left turns the same way Americans do, except they make them to the right instead of to the left. Likewise, the right turns are made to the left. It can be confusing, which is why countries with past British-Empire associations have to write "LOOK RIGHT" on all their curbs.
