Does your toilet water drain differently than in the other hemisphere? Is it because of the Coriolis effect? Hank has some things to clarify about these questions, and more in this edition of I Don’t Think It Means What You Think It Means.

In this edition of IDTIMWYTIM, Hank explains why the common understanding of “equinox” is wrong, what the equinox actually is, and then rages a little against astronomers and their stupid confusing Latin terms.
