There SHOULD be water in the "P-Trap" below the sink. The trap keeps sewer gas from entering the house. It's called a "P-Trap" because of the shape, it's shaped like the letter "P" on it's side. If the water drains from the trap, it's the right level.

What could cause a toilet to lose suction power and sometimes not even take down the water?

Home toilets do not use "suction power" to flush. The inertia of the water falling from the tank when you flush pushes water through the trap and down the drain. If there is any significant amount of blockage in the drain, the water will not be able to move at enough velocity to get past the trap. In other words, if the drain is blocked, water can't flow fast enough to flush. You'll need to get the drain cleaned out to make it flush.

What are the consequences of blocked arachnoid villi?

Arachnoid villi can be compared to the drain in your shower or sink. Think about a wad of hair covering the drain. The water cannot drain out and if more water is added without removing the blockage, there will be a build-up of water. It is the same with your arachnoid villi. If blockage occurs, the cerebrospinal fluid won't be able to flow freely, thus building up pressure. This is called hydrocephalus or "water on the brain".

What is the relationship between a water table and a well?

If you want to get water out of your well, you need to drill down below the water table in able to pump it out. That should be kind of obvious. The only other neat point that you make is that if the topography dips below the natural water table, then the water in the aquifer (the rock holding the water) will be exposed at the surface. This is called an artesian well, and this is what makes the famous desert oasis happen.

Where is the radiator drain plug on a Nissan Maxima?

On my 89 maxima, the drain plug is on rear left portion of the bottom of the radiator. Its a somewhat large plastic screw that you should be able to loosen with your fingers. Look for a small tube facing either backward or downward (possibly with flexible plastic tube attached) The drain plug should be very close to that. Loosening the drain plug to a point will cause coolant to pour out of the small tube, you should not need to remove the plug.
