What Would Happen if Earth Started to Spin Faster?

Quote:
There are enough things in this life to worry about. Like nuclear war, climate change, and whether or not youíre brushing your teeth correctly. The Earth spinning too fast should not be high up on your list, simply because itís not very likely to happen anytime soonóand if it does, youíll probably be too dead to worry about it. Nevertheless, we talked to some experts to see how it would all go down.

First, letís talk about how fast the world is spinning now. That actually depends on where you are, because the planet spins fastest around its waistline. As Earth twirls around its axis, its circumference is widest at the equator. So a spot on the equator has to travel a lot farther in 24 hours to loop around to its starting position than, say, Chicago, which sits on a narrower cross-section of Earth. To make up for the extra distance, the equator spins at 1,037 mph, whereas Chicago takes a more leisurely (approximately 750 mph) pace.

I would imagine, since the world is flat, that we would all just flip off like a marble on a record when you put it on the 78.....

All of the thin people would fall off, which is why there are so many obese people around. Survival of the unfittest.

I have always been interested and studied anthropology geology and archaeology.
There is much in the geological and historical text of this cyclical catastrophic earth changes. I believe this likely originates from our suns cycles and causes major magnetic pole shifts and fluctuations fairly regularly in planetary history. The poles are actually moving at a increasing pace right now.

A quick flip or change to me explains the world wide stories of floods like Noah's and
advanced civilizations lost like Atlantis. Some of this has a archaeological and geological record. It also explains the bottlenecks in human history.

Imagine seeing the sun stop in the sky, miles high ocean waves, massive earthquakes, 500+ miles per hour winds, high radiation-magnetosphere strip, followed by a flash freeze...back to the stone age again for the few survivors.

There is a declassified CIA document that lays out this scenario and yes the Denver area Cheyenne mountain is a well chosen spot to ride out something like this.

well, nothing.... think about it. If Superman was able to stop the Earth's rotation and spin it backwards to go back in time an then start rotating it again and nothing happened then no worries.....

How much faster we talking'?

If it's only 1 or 2 seconds a day then in a whole month my clocks would only be off by maybe a minute. No big deal.

But if it's 1 or 2 minutes a day, then in a month my clocks would all be an hour off. That would be messed up.

Couldn't find the video showing Secret Chimp spinning around and around so this will have to do.




For all you young whippersnappers (look that up in your Funk & Wagnalls) this is what real music was like!

If the earth spins faster, our days would be shorter. Simply put.

In college I roomed next door to an engineering nerd. He relayed that one of his professors told him this: if you put a bucket of water at a point on earth directly under the North Star, and all the stars, planets, and objects in the universe were to begin revolving around straight line axis between Polaris and the bucket, the water in the buckets would start to come up the sides of the bucket from the gravitational effect.

Or something like that.

And if you really had some talent, you might finagle your way onto the Ed Simian show ......

Video unavailable. Censored for three letters in the url.

Middle video in the group of three below. That's the spinning chimp I was thinking about! LOL

Yep, that's it: censored. The following three letters should be after the PL in the url: First, F and then, U and then - well, you have a choice. Go for it!
[/url]
D'oh! I couldn't figure out why the Youtube screen shot wouldn't imbed into my post, but now I understand. Never thought to look at the link itself. Just an unfortunate letter randomization by Youtube.

Yeah, I used to watch Lancelot Link every Saturday - I was in 5th or 6th grade? - and the Ed Simian Show portion was hysterical, because then you'd watch the real Ed Sullivan Show the next evening.

Well one thing that would happen; there would be an increase in the strength of Earth's magnetic field.

Too funny. You answered before I could make my post more "family friendly". Now, ohiopup knows and is spreading it all over the place!

There is more than one similarity between Ed Sullivan and Ed Simian. Good gracious, I just realized - fifty years later - the significance of "simian".
