Turns out that the earth spins at about 800 miles per hour due East.

If it stopped for a second, anything not bolted to the earth would fly off 800 miles per hour -due east.

The other information he shared is that the opinion about polar reversals is not true.

The earth wobbles as it spins leading to little deviations from the "true north", but it NEVER reverses poles.

Speaking about the earths spin and wobble, I figured out that the spin is really a wobble because of the way the sun "crosses" the tropics (of Cancer and Capricorn) and Equator (or course) each year. 

If the earth's spin were a perfect spin, the sun's "crossings" (of the tropics) wouldn't happen.

Good information.
