Well, that makes sense. Toilets in the Southern Hemisphere flush in the
opposite direction of those in the Northern Hemisphere. So, S. Hemi. LOs
inject the opposite side than the N. Hemi. ones.

I've also got a good theory about why hot countries are less stable than
cooler ones - and how to fix it with air conditioners.
