    I was wondering what would happen if one were to move from west to east at the same speed as the earth's -leaving geographical elements aside-, would it be always the same time? For example, if you started at midnight would it always be nighttime? Or if you started in the midday, would it be always daytime?

    Well, since you're standing on the surface of the earth technically you ARE moving at the same speed of the earth. But I think you're asking if you traveled at the 1,037.50 miles per hour (the circumference of the earth, divided by the hours in the day) you would essentially stay locked in a single relationship to the sun. Yes.

    That's nice! I'm sure "we" 'll see some interesting stuff regarding this in the coming centuries.
