Hey, this is fun. I got a good answer to my first question.
Now, I read on the ‘Big Fur Hat’ humor site a year ago that Vice Presiden Joe Biden once told school children water circles"backwards" down the drains of China.
–I take this to be a distortion of the unproven claim that water “more often” circles the drain “backwards” (counter-clockwise) in the SOUTHERN HEMISPHERE. Joe just changed the geography to self-centered East/West, with himself as Prime Meridian.
–DID BIDEN SAY THIS? I can’t find it online. Can you cite a source?
–Any comments on water circling the drain “backwards” in the Southern Hemisphere?
–In line with Biden’s alleged remark: My grandmother, born in 1884, once told me that the Chinese were different from us because, being born on the other side of the world, “Their noses run and their feet smell.”
