Forget pouring water into your mouth on a spinning planet.

M and K here! If the Earth is truly propelling you at 1040 miles per hour or 1525.333 fps (Feet per second) (Equator) this is what drinking water out of a bottle would look like!

The moment the water fell from the bottle, it would be blown away by 1040 mph head/cross/tailwinds and would never reach your mouth. In one second’s time, you would have moved a QUARTER of a mile!
