    Oh, it’s worse than that.

    The Earth is spinning. It’s rotating at about 1000 mph.

    The Earth is orbiting the Sun, at the 67,000 mph noted. The Sun is orbiting the center of the galaxy at, lat I checked, about double that. (I think. It’s been a while since I looked this up.)

    The galaxy is moving relative to the center of the local group.

    The local group is moving relative to other local groups.

    Isn’t gravity wonderful?

    Yes, we’re there. We’re always there, because “there” is always right here in an orbit.

    The Earth spins very slowly, so it looks like the sun is setting.

    Left field. We are standing on an electron that is part of a sodium atom in a larger construct. Think about it for a second. As valid as any other theory.

    I love the fact that Hammy is in a car seat.

    Well, at least the universe isn’t moving. Or is it?
