    doesn't phase you at all to post 'facts' that you have no idea if they're true or not?

    shaggy- yeah it would

    if you look at one pole of venus then it will be spinning either clockwise or counter-clockwise, and if you look at it from the other pole then it will be spinning the opposite.

    <font color="green"> Well you gotta compare apples to apples... I think what is meant is that if you look at all the planets from the same place, they all rotate clockwise. You can't just randomly look at Venus upside down and say that they all spin the same way, that wouldn't make sense at all. Besides that, you said look at it from the other side, not upside down...</font color>

    yeah i know exactly what it meant- venus spins the opposite direction as all of the other planets- but to say that it rotates clockwise is like saying that venus lies to the left of earth. im just being picky is all

    <font color="green"> Haha, OK, looking at everything as part of the big picture, there is no up or down in the universe. I can respect that. /forums/images/icons/grin.gif The thing should say that it rotates the opposite direction of the other planets. </font color>

    um, ok. but when someone starts a post labeled "Things You Might Need To Know One Day", wouldn't you assume that they would in fact, be facts?
    please explain why i would need to know incorrect facts at any point in my life?
    not that these are all incorrect, but why post a list of things that i might need to know, if you don't know the validity?
