Analog in Australia?

Is it true what my friend told me, that the tape reels spool clockwise down there? he said it's because you're south of the equator.

Actually it's a real pain in the @ss because when I get stuff that's been tracked overseas I have to reverse my cables so the sound comes out the right way.
I have a koala I use as an assistant that normally does it while I have a coffee.

Man that's nothin....koalas only eat gumleaves and get so little nutrients from them they just lie around stoned all day. I swear Blinky Bill (my assistant) has to be kicked in the @ss just to get him to set up a mic. I can't even eat him because his flesh is poisonous. I'd sack him but he's on a work for the dole subsidy so he doesn't cost much, and he makes a great latte.

Yes - it is true and it's called the Coriolis effect.

This was documented clearly on one episode of the Simpsons when Bart visited Australia and the water in the toilet visibly flushed down in the opposite direction.

Ya learn something new every day.

It just looks like they do when viewed from Vancouver BC.
