# Speed of the earth spinning?

There’re many things we don’t really know. It’s an illusion that we know anything at all. If a group of aliens were to stop me and ask, “Say, bud, how many miles an hour does the earth spin at the equator?” I’d be in a fix. Hell, I don’t even know why Wednesday follows Tuesday. I’d be an intergalactic joke.

what if the earth stopped spinning suddenly? would we all fly off the surface, on account of inertia?

1674.38 kilometers per hour = 1040 miles per hour. so my original number is the same as yours – i went metric, is all.
