I'm sorry, but I just found this too funny...

There is this thread....this guy said his query was spinning....

So anacedent says:

"Is it spinning clockwise or counter clockwise?"

The OP never answered this question so I still don't know in which direction to apply counter force to slow & stop the spinning. Cool

Do you know the answer?
I think it is clockwise in northern hemisphere and counter-clockwise in the southern one.
Or is it the opposite?

Well my bed usually spins clockwise, unless I was doing tequila then it goes counter-clockwise.

Actually, both is true (due to the Coriolis' effect).
