1.5 milliseconds? Really? That‘s so insignificant that it makes the degree of “glow bull warming“ difference sound credible…..just saying.

The earth is spinning faster because I lost some weight.

On the top shelf.
Yet another scientific fact (world slowing down) has been proven wrong.

They might as well start referring to it as "practicing science".

The "expert scientists" don't know Jack Bo-Diddly Squat, except how to get another bigger government grant paid for by We The Taxpayers.

If we can truly measure the earth's rotation to the faction of a nanosecond then why are we wasting our time and energy on trivia, Lets propel at the speed of light.
I have no doubt they have instruments that theoretically do all this and just don't believe it would be that accurate.

Reminds me of a job I had once years ago working weekend night shift. In the spring at the start of DST when we sprang forward we’d get paid the extra hour we didn’t work!!!

Could this explain why it feels like time is speeding up?

Knew a old timer when we were younger and one day we visited him and made a offhand comment about 'time flying'. He was about 80 and scoffed, he says as a little kid in school class last forever it seems, as you age and guage everything by your total intellect time starts to go faster, he said for him the day just flew by. My twin and I looked at each other and said GREAT (not really).

Oh No ! We'll start flying off the planet ! {sarc] Cancelling my trip to Mt. Everest.
Maybe we will weigh less on the scale now ? :don't know:

Unless you live at one of the poles....then you would way a lot more. Of course, this doesn't actually translate to real life....it's almost as if there is no spinning at all. But it's fun to pretend.

The Earth is spinning? I'd like to see the proof...
I like this question. Someone makes a claim. Another disputes the claim. So we have the beginning of a story. But... Does the outcome affect me in any way? If not, I will just go with the old news until there is a reason to choose a new version.

And why are the lowest points on Earth the hottest, and the highest points the coldest if the sun is our primary source of heat?

Heat radiation, much of the hottest points sit in depressions. The Highest points are small compared to the Earth's surface and get little of the ambient heat from the ground the Earth holds. The poles get the least direct sunlight, and stay snow covered year round.
