Technically you go around the world every 24 hours.

Technically, that is not a true statement.
Please understand that I hate making fun of or insulting people just because there's something they don't know, or something they got wrong.

You stupid ****.

you just rotate the earths axis at the same phase the earth does.

No, the world goes around it's axis once every 24 hours but you remain (more or less) at a fixed point. You go around the axis, you do not go around the world because that means a different thing.
You're getting all the hate because when you try to be a smartass and fail it is pretty irritating

ok, let's say, you got a point. Even then, you would only go around the world every 24 hours if you lived on the equator. On every other point of the world, you wouldn't circle the whole world every 24 hours, but only part of it.

Yeah, but enough people already mentioned, that you would still be wrong even when you lived on the equator.

what do you mean "technically"? you technically move with the earth as it rotates, and you're trying to say in the same area within the earth's rotation in the 24 hours, then you're not accounting the fact that the earth is moving as it rotates.    
   
so you're not crossing any surface area around the earth   
you're not in the area that the earth "was" at a certain point in space, since its constantly moving as it rotates   
and you're not actually "going around the world". you're standing at one point. you're not technically going around anything. the earths rotation at the axis is moving you, and its not "you" thats going around anything.    
at least, thats what I got. if you could specify something that would be great

Maybe I was just retarded last night, idk. What my mind was thinking was more along the lines of just making a neat circle around the Earth. If you consider the earth as an object on a coordinate plane, then it works. But if you consider it as the coordinate plane itself, it doesn't work. Most people seem to see it from that second option.

If you move the scale upwards and downwards, it tends to make more sense. At least to me, so it should translate to the earth as well. Since the Milky Way galaxy spins, the Earth goes around the galaxy, even if the rest o the galaxy is moving with it. If you're on a Ferris wheel, and stay on for one complete rotation, you've gone around the ferris wheel, even if the wheel was moving with you. Does this make any sense? I might just still be retarded right now.

You're not retarded, and I get what you're saying, but you're wrong from a semantics viewpoint.

To "go around the world" is to travel its circumference, people also mean "go around the world" as in "travel about" and "travel a great distance about the earth".

If you want to be technical, define "going around the world" under the circumstances of the Earth not rotating at all. To go around the world would then be to go about its circumference while having a greater tangential velocity than the Earth's tangential velocity.

Bottom line, it's not about what "going around the world" actually means, because there are so many meanings. It's about what it does NOT mean. And it does NOT mean to stand still on the Earth while it completes a full rotation, as you suggested originally.

No I see the the earth as an object but what I'm saying is you didn't go around the object if you stayed in the same place relative to the object. In the ferris wheel example it doesn't matter as much because it's more or less uniform but I still would say the ferris wheel went around, not I went around it.
Going around the earth would require that your position with respect to the earth had changed. Everything in the universe is in motion, relative motion is the only thing that has meaning and is therefore the technical definition.

Alright, I have nothing better to do right now so let me draw up a diagram.
It looks like ass, but I don't really give a ****.

So the center object is the earth, let's say, and the smaller circle is something that is circling around the earth. The earth is facing it at all times, though. Even though the earth was facing the object the entire time, it still went "around" the earth. Or, at least, I'd like to say it does... if you think otherwise, please explain why.
But if we can say that, even though the earth was facing the object the whole time, that the object went AROUND the earth, then the same applies regardless of distance. Even if it's on the earth's surface.

Would you say that the mountains go around the earth every 24 hours? What you're saying is not crazy, I understand what you mean, it is just a ridiculous way to look at motion.
Going around something means that you moved relative to that object.
When I am on a spinnamajig or Merry-go-Round or whatever I say that it spun around, I would not say that I spun around it.
A better way to say what you said is "Technically, we make one rotation around a fixed point at the centre of the earth's axis every 24 hours". That would be correct

That's different, because the mountains are a part of the earth itself. But I see your point.
But as comment #28 said, my example doesn't even work as "going around" unless you live on the equator, so I guess I'm just stupid as ****.

Not stupid, just wrong
But in a sense, sitting in the same spot, in the same house, with it's foundations rooted into the earth, we're just as much a part of the earth as the mountains.

I'd say we're more attached than unattached but it was just to make a point. From the earth's frame of reference we would not be different from any other object, we are more or less in the same place all the time.

it all depends on what "going around the world" means, and whatever the case is, its most likely the latter, where you, a person, actually travels across the circumference of a sphere

In relation to the universe, you travel around the world. But in relation to the world, you stay in the same spot. I suppose it depends on how you orientate the problem, so it could swing either way.

yes, you have a rotation around the earths axis approximately every 24 hours, but you dont actually circumnavigate the land itself, which is what the term "going around the world" generally implies

Only reason I've been given is comment #5, but that's a pedantic difference at best.
If the world makes a complete rotation, you rotate with it completely around its center axis. You've gone around the world, even if you're on the same point. But I guess it depends on whether you define the world as an object on a plane, or as the plane itself.

"Objects in mirror are closer than they appear"

Or if they're 20ft away are they really 5ft?
