If you spin around in a circle fast enough while holding the flash

As comparison to hard-disk scenario is the access

concepts apply to flash memory?
Yes, but the times involved are much smaller.
How do seek and rotational delays affect Flash RAM?
Wouldn't the increased acceleration from centripetal forces get you
to the outside edge faster, counterbalancing that effect?
I suppose moving the data back 'uphill' would increase the transfer
