Default Re: 19.5 + 22.5, 38th Paralell, Erth/Galaxy/Universe Energy Hotspots & other random i

Why do some galaxies spin oneway while other spin another way?

A. It would depend on if they were above or below the ecliptic.
On Earth water spins differently in each hemisphere.

This is not true. Air spins, due to centrufugal force, in opposite directions from areas of High pressure towards areas of Low pressure depending on Lattitude. Not water. The toilet thing, the false assumption water drains in opposite directions on each side of the equator is an urban legend. The surface area of any draining appliace is too small to be affected by the coriolis effect.
