In a rotating environment just moving your head can make you dizzy or even sick.

I always thought the best way to create artificial gravity in a space station is by having one centralized compact living quarter and a really long cable with a heavy counterweight on the end, rotating around the station. That way the rotation could be relatively slow and the effects relatively mild.

Plus, astronauts will automatically adjust their aim if they miss the fly.
