What if...

What if the planet stopped rotating?

Somehow, say the core of the planet just froze in place, but the rest of the matter on this planet were still full of it's original kinetic energy. What would happen?

Would everything on the surface of the earth fly east? Would I be flung into my cubical wall? Would my office building pull up from the foundation? Would cars, buses, people, cats, dogs, trash cans, squirrels, and loose change go flying across the land? Would the oceans wash over half, or the entire continent?

Would the earth rip itself apart?
