How fast are we going?

Because the earth is moving, does anyone know how fast a person is moving if they’re standing completely still? I can’t find a reliable answer anywhere. Is there a speed or range of speeds we travel at, taking into account our rotation, orbit, and the speed we are flying away from other galaxies?

once you start talking about our universal shifts and the speed at which we are drifting from other galaxies I really doubt it matters whether or not we are standing still or in an airplane.
I would be surprised if someone could give you an accurate answer to this question. there are so many ridiculous factors involved.

My answer is accurate, speed is always relative to a certain point.

How else would there be a difference.
