Do tornadoes spin clock wise or counter clock wise?

It depends what hemisphere your in. If your in the northern hemisphere, 999 out of a 1,000 Tornadoes will spin counter clock wise. In the southern hemisphere 999 out of a 1,000 with spin clock wise. BUT that doesn't mean you will never see a clock or counter clock wise tornado in the same hemispheres. If you get a counter clock wise or clock wise tornado in the opposite hemispheres (which would be rare or... EXTREMELY rare! Which would be 1% of the spin cycle) the normal one will be coupled with the non normal one.
