It should into present a problem with day-to-day living, but given the 
Whorl is of a size that towns are visible overhead, any activity 
involving flying objects will be visibly affected. For instance, a ball 
thrown or hit against the rotation of the Whorl will be seen to go 
farther than one hit traveling with the rotation.
