    yea, everything does, only it's sooo small, it's hard to detect.

    There are no more molecules of matter on earth now than there ever were. Every block of cement is made from molecules that existed previously in some other form. The issue is distribution. If we were able to take a great deal of matter and build a mountain with a flat side facing east, fifty times larger than any known mountain, we might be able to slow down the spin, but engineering has no need to do this thing.

    Normally no. We can consider a deeper aspect since you raised this question. The rotation or speed of Earth depends on moment of inertia or the second moment. This depends on mass distribution. If the mass is concentrated in the outer layers of Earth, then MOI will increase. It offers greater resistance to rotation. Suppose you built a gigantic structure which changes the mass distribution substantially then we could have some very small change considering that Earth's mass is a gigantic 6*10^24 kg and mean radius is 6372.797 km

    COMPARE THE WEIGHT OF EARTH AND OTHER PLANTETS LIKE JUPITER AND URANUS, NEPTUNE AND SATURN

    WEIGHT AND ROTATION DO NOT HAVE ANY LINK.

    MOON. MERCURY AND VENUS ARE LIGHTER THAN EARTH BUT THEIR SPIN AROUND THE AXIS IS FAR LESS THAN THE EARTH.
