What I meant to say for 2 is...Faster then

2. What your talking about is the coriolis (I think that's spelled right)
effect. And the answer is, Yes. This can cause problems with the
inhabitants when the rotation is FASTER THEN 1 rotation per 60 seconds. Look
at the spining rides at the amusement parks, they rotate more then once per
60 seconds and the effect is dizziness, and vomiting. That speed is fun
for a ride but not fun to live in.
