If you can, explain it. Currently, gravity says you can not.

Yes, you then would be known as the human pendulum.
It is called the Foucault Pendulum and you can find them in science centers and museums, they circle the floor with pegs so you can see the earth' rotation in action, as the earth rotates under the pendulum, it then knocks another peg down.

Another example would be a human in an elevator jumping. You still move relative to the elevator and don't end up smushed against its ceiling.
If the chickens were to jump higher than the trucks walls, they would then be outside of the truck and the truck would speed on from underneath them.

I often wonder things like this, i used to wonder if i threw a peanut or a feather in the air in a fast moving car or plane why doesnt it smash into the back of the car or plane...or a lift falling, if you jump at the last moment do you survive, i remember mythbusters doing something about that...its all gravity i guess
