comment When a moving body collides with a stationary body, far from its centre, how do you calculate the resulting spin
you should learn about conservation of angular momentum

comment How can time be relative?
" time passes for everyone in the same manner (you can't feel a change)" only if you're not moving relative to yourself. Imagine a rotating man, with the axis of rotation passing through the centre of the rod. The edges of the man will age slower than the centre. If you wave your hand in the air, your hand ages slower than you. However, at everyday-life speeds (speeds much smaller than the speed of light) this difference in aging is tiny and insignificant.
