you could be on a treadmill
Nov 04, 2001

No, cuz you can run faster than a treadmill can go usually. Another answer would be a rainbow, since you can't reach those either. Or maybe the moon, stars, or sun.

wait a minute, Mike1313

how do you WALK to the moon, the stars, the sun...

speaking of the cosmos, heres a cool fact: the reason the "surface" of a black hole is called the Event Horizon is because if you were to observe someone moving toward the surface, they would get slower and slower as they get closer, never actually reaching it. The path of light is distorted by the black hole.

this teaser i got by the way

Actually no you can't. Sorry about above comment. Dumb blonde moment.

Yeah yeah I know... that's offensive to blonde people. Sorry. It's just an expression.

Maybe the title of these comments should be "To comment so much..."
Y'all should put your comments in one post. If you posted your post and notice something you want to change, I don't think a second comment hurts, but three, four, five comments all in a row by the same person is kind of annoying.
