Besides, first you have to spin the wheel. Then you have to guess a letter, wait for Pat to tell you if the key is there or not, and if it is, then Vanna lights up its staff....

In related news, I think Vanna was probably better at "lighting up a staff, say 20 years ago?

Clockwise or anticlockwise?

Not sure. It's either toward the camera, or clockwise in the northern hemisphere and counterclockwise in the southern hemisphere.

Ya hafta gauge it off which way your toilet spins when you flush it......

Nah, on the equator the toilet would spin both directions at once, time would reverse, and we'd have to start the thread all over again.

On a more serious note, if you were directly on the equator, the water would really just go straight down? Wow, that's heavy! That concept never even crossed my mind. To the upside, I expect the turds would skip the whole whirling dervish act, and just go away....

Actually water goes the same way down the plug-hole regardless of which hemisphere you live in because that kind of vortex has more to do with the design of your washbasin or loo than it does with the directional spin of the earth. Large wind systems, though, they're a different matter.

Well that took all the fun out of it, party pooper. (buen pun, si)?

Take a moment to ponder this though: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foucault_pendulum

That is a cool experiment, but I always liked this one better when talking about conservation of angular momentum.

Mucho bueno, Capitán de mal humor!

Yeah - I thought that the plughole thing had to do with the rotation of the earth but I watched some TV that debunked the myth. And we all know that if it's on TV then it's true.

I read that book once. I preferred The Name Of The Rose.

I'll get my coat.

I haven't laughed that hard in months.


Back on topic, the Circle of Fifths is when one goes from C (clock-wise), and up a fifth each step. First to G, then to D, A, E, etc, etc. The Circle of Fourths is when one goes from C (counter-clockwise), and goes down a fourth each step. First F, then Bb, Eb, etc. At one point or another, they will cross the key that really f**king sucks (F#/Gb Major).

At this point, I have no idea what else is there. Other than the shortcut for transposing keys and such.

Well see, in my version of the "wheel of woe", er, I mean, "circle of fifths", that key doesn't exist! All there is at that wedge, is a picture of a capo.....
