If one could travel the speed of light, one would be everywhere at once. True or false... please explain your answer

Not true,the light of stars end up on earth long after they have died...

My guess... :p

Why? The speed of light is very fast, but not instantaneous...

false,you cant be everywhere at once,thats absurd...lol
light is omni directional and your body aint made for that,if want to you can try to break down to a molecular level and see where you want to go.Maybe you will come back with your thumb stuck up your a\$\$ or a fist in your head..lol

False.

1. Light travels quite slowly relative to cosmic distances.

2. Theoreticaly your mass approaches infinite at light speed, not your volume.

3. Where did you get the infinite energy needed to get to light speed?

bowl of kellogs?
They do say :'he got it all this morning?
If kellogs aint enough maybe you can sue kellogs for false advertising?

Most what alloytoo said, but:

If you could theoretically reach the speed of light, and your mass reaches infinity then the mass would be enough to bend the space-time continuum (Already before infinity actually).

The bend & mass would, since it's infinite, draw everything towards it so it could be in a way "everywhere".

Well I'm sorry, but who would want to travel and slow assed speed of light? I'd rather be travelling at the speed of dark. Because everyone knows dark is faster than light. Proved time and again, each time I open my cupboard, the dark is gone instantly. Weird but true.

Well to travel at the spead of light you mass would have to be Zero. Which is why photons do it. They have zero mass so they can only travel at the speed of light (or the maximum possible speed). So yes, you can reach the speed of light, you just have to somehow lose all your mass. Probably easier to find the infinite energy.

Logically, for me at least, it follows that seeing as photons aren't everywhere at once, neither would you be. I can't tell you why photons aren't everywhere at once, except to say I can't think of any reason they should be.
