I know that climate, seasonal and magnetic poles would be affected by this, but please, refer to them in your answer.

What would happen if earth were to suddenly reverse direction of its rotation, or suddenly change it's axis so it rotates side to side (like uranus) or front to back instead of rotating top to bottom? Also, what would happen to us; would we fly around because of inertia because we want to stay in the same direction if the earth reversed rotation direction or suddenly change the way it is spinning?
