# Thread: The Earth Rotates right?

1. ## The Earth Rotates right?

Right! And, I was thinking what if the earth got dizzy, I mean this is serious the earth never stops spinning what if it gets motion sick. And so I was like but how does it throw up? ANd I was like volcanos. so that's why they're were so many volcanos in the beginning, cuz the earth wasn't use to spinning and it finally got use to it so less volcano eruptions.

2. It depends which way you're facing. If you're facing South, it rotates right. If North, it rotates left. East, it rotates back, and West, it rotates forwards. If you really want to be confusing you could try to define the direction of rotation relative to yourself using all the other points of the compass, but I think I've established the general principle

At the moment I'm facing East, looking out of my window down the valley, so the issue is quite clear-cut. I, and the earth, are heading backwards into the future. Same as usual really. :rolli:

3. wow, that took me awhile, i was like the earth moves in a totally different direction based on the direction you're facing, how come it doesn't appear to be having delerium tremors? maybe those are earth quakes.

And just think that we're moving with it, faster than the speed of sound just by standing still, if it was possible to measure that (unless you live near one of the poles of course)

5. dude, I was really high when I posted all this, I have no idea what I was saying.

6. I think the Earth rotates wrong.

7. And when it got too scared by all that motion, it pissed its pants....hence, our oceans!

8. Then it finally learned how to deal with its motion sickness and exhaled a huge sigh of relief...hence, our atmosphere!

9. Then, it hit puberty and started to grow "hair".......hence, our green, green earth!

10. And even later Earth met a girl who gave him lice.
