People who have been on both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres know that the water runs down a drain in counter-clockwise direction south of the equator and clockwise in the Northern Hemisphere.
Hurricanes, tornadoes and other low-pressure storm centers in the Northern
Hemisphere swirl in the counter-clockwise motion, but in the Southern Hemisphere this is reversed. Even smoke spirals upward in the opposite direction on each half of the Earth.
If seen from "above," (North) the planets of the solar system appear to rotate counter-clockwise motion. From the southern side of the solar system ("below"), they would be seen to rotate in the opposite direction.
No civilization of any kind has ever originated in the Southern Hemisphere; people from the Northern Hemisphere founded every modern nation existing south of the equator today. This dominance of the north over the south manifests itself even among nations, states, and cities. Wherever a war or conflict has arisen, either civil or international, the northern nation-or northern part of that nation-emerges victorious or dominant.
Southern Ireland is one example; both before and after their American Civil War, the North dominated the South in this country, and it still does. Although Washington, D.C. is the nation's Capital, New York is the financial center of this country (New York being farther north than Washington).
