    It's like how when you sit in a plane or a train you don't feel like you're like going that fast do you? You feel kinda still, other than if you look outside.

    I am not sure but I think it is acceleration that we notice not speed, the Earth's rotational speed is effectively 0 to us from our frame of reference.

    people who live at the equator move much faster than we do, so they have to sit down.

    It is because of almost zero acceleration. You will only feel it when earth speeds up or slows down (hence change of acceleration). As someone said above, if you just sat on a train that moved constantly at 60mph (acceleration = 0) you wouldn't feel it, you would feel it when it slowed down or sped up.

    We do trust me I live in Qatar at the equator

    And I have to wear a seatbelt when I'm in school

    You guys in England just travel at lower speeds so that's why you don't feel it

    Say that earth started going 10 times faster. Other than it obviously getting darker and lighter a lot quicker- would you notice anything different? Would people start getting dizzy? Would people not be able to walk properly and be falling all over the place?

    at the north pole the angular momentum is so great that you can lean over at 45º without falling.

    Think of it this way... If the Earth instantly stopped spinning, not only would you get extremely dizzy, but you'd also turn into a human bullet.

    they also have to nail all their furniture down so it doesn't get flung out of the earth because of centripetal force
