Ok, here's a weird thing I just learned in school...


The Coriolis Force. Sadly, though, the teacher was wrong about it affecting drains... I have to tell him.

This force also is on the earth and has to do with way of the rotation of tornados, hurricanes, and cyclones. And i believe also with the Passat winds.

I learned that in geography this year.

What block are you learning it in?

Climatology, so that we understand about hurricanes and stuff like that.
