Random thoughts...

When I was a kid I always thought quicksand would be the biggest problem in my life because 'nobody' could escape from quicksand; right?

Then years later, well actually decades later, I realize quicksand is no real threat to me because I've never come across it yet in all my years on this earth, and I've been to some pretty weird places in my time, so chances are .... I'm good for the rest of my days!

 

Now I worry about other stuff like, does water really go down the drain counter clockwise in the southern hemisphere? And if it does, what happens to water in a sink right on the equator? Is there no swirling of water on the equator?

 

Or; is it like this? Switching back and forth between clockwise & counter clockwise 🤔

I clearly have some serious contemplating to do so I'd better get at it!!

Soo..just went and put the plug in the bathroom sink, filled it up and the pulled the plug to observe the direction the water drained. It drained CLOCKWISE. So I went an flushed the dunny....our toilets don't swirl when ya flush em.....so I asked Madam Google and I now know a shit ton more than I ever did about the Coriolis effect...but no idea about water going down drains.....I like to believe the science source I read that said it's both...it just depends on the physicality of the sink and the plug hole. RANDOM THOUGHT - why did I spend an hour of my Saturday morning confirming to my family I am a bit more than slightly insane.

I always heard the water swirled in the opposite direction Northern to Southern hemisphere but yeah; who knows? 

I can tell you from experience though that I (along with 20 or 30 other nutters) stood on the deck of a ship at noon as the ship was crossing the Equator right around March 21st to see if we cast any shadows and we did not! 

Not sure what that proves but seemed like a cool idea at the time? (May have been alcohol involved in this experiment!)

Has @Boo's little princess watched Oddball?

 

It has everything you could want...penguins, dogs, baddies and laughs.

 

Haven't heard of that one, but I'll check it out.

 

When Maddie is sleepy enough to sit down and watch something, we've been watching a Japanese show.  The title roughly translates in English to "Funny Monkey and Cute Bulldog."  The narration is completely in Japanese.  However, since the stars of the show are a bulldog and a monkey the language barrier is not a big deal.  Maddie enjoys it and so do I.  In one episode they went to a sporting goods store and the monkey ran on a treadmill.  The little gal laughed, clapped, and said "again!"

 

I've got a confession: there have been times when Maddie fell asleep and after I put her to bed, I would go back and watch the ending of the episode to see if the monkey and bulldog had accomplished all of their tasks.

The funny things you do and enjoy as a parent can be a real surprise.  Evevything looks different when you can see it in your childs eyes!  I missed all of Disneyworld because I was looking at my son's (and my husbands) face.  They had a really good time! LOL

About us

QuitTrain®, a quit smoking support community, was created by former smokers who have a deep desire to help people quit smoking and to help keep those quits intact.  This place should be a safe haven to escape the daily grind and focus on protecting our quits.  We don't believe that there is a "one size fits all" approach when it comes to quitting smoking.  Each of us has our own unique set of circumstances which contributes to how we go about quitting and more importantly, how we keep our quits.
