i.e. is it friction between the ground and my feet forcing me to spin along 
with the earth?  or is it something to do with gravitational forces? if I'm in 
space I can see the earth spin below me, so at what point, if any, of my 
descent will I begin to spin along with the earth? nobody else can answer me, 
please help!!!!
