What would happen if the spinning of the world slowed down?

    Our days would get longer.  It takes about one full day (plus or minus a few seconds) for the Earth to rotate on its axis.  The time of a year would be the same though, I don’t think the Earth’s rotational speed affects the orbit around the sun.  I believe there are some planets that rotate so slowly, or orbit the sun so fast that their year is actually shorter than a day…pretty cool.
