Quite often when I hear someone from the UK talk, I have a hard time understanding because of the accent. Is it the same in the UK when hearing Americans talk?

I have another question for you folks below the equator. == Here in the US when you flush a toilet, the water goes down counter-clock-wise. I have always heard that below the equater, it goes down clock-wise, is that correct?

Long story short, no, it has nothing to do with where the toilet is located. It all has to do with toilet design.

Also, in case anyone throws it out there, water funneling down a drain (i.e. sink, shower) does not go the opposite direction either.

Nope, like I said before. The world is very Americanised. We get a lot of US shows and and films so we are generally used to the accent and humour. It's why I was saying in an earlier post I don't think many Americans don't get British humour, it's not that it's beyond you guys it's just you wouldn't be used to our accent and humour because it hasn't been drummed in to you like your stuff has with us.

No, actually the story said the jets in the toilet determine the way the water flows. That is what Kirsch said.
