Actually what would happen if the earth came to a sudden halt, would we feel it? The earth rotates roughly 1000 MPH. I realize everything including the air is rotating that fast and therefore we don't "see" the rotation relative to anything on earth, but why don't we feel it?

Consider the fastest amusement park ride is roughly 150 MPH and you feel that pretty good.
