It's always bothered me that the O'Neill space wheel puts forth centrifugal force as a suitable replacement for gravity. However, it seems the effects of conservation of angular momentum would induce effects quite different than gravity. Most notably, if I'm standing facing (or opposing) the direction of spin, I would experience an inertial force against falling or leaning sideways - but perhaps not forward or backward. It seems this force could be quite disorienting if movements in some direction encounter greater inertial resistance than movements in other directions. Furthermore, it seems bowling might be quite impossible as pins would similarly be difficult to knock over in one direction - but not another.
Am I misunderstanding or overstating the effects one might experience here?
