If I ate myself would I become twice as big or completely disappear?

Net weight change- zero. But you WILL need to get a new Social Security card.

If I am travelling at the speed of light, what happens if I turn on my headlights?

I used to drive a Heisenbergmobile but everytime I looked at the speedometer I got lost!

I think I actually know the answer to that.

IIRC, if you are traveling at the speed of light, and turn on a light, that light is also traveling at the speed of light. BUT, it will seem to be moving faster to you. That's Einstein's theory of relativity.

BTW, if you are traveling at the speed of light (or close to it), time will actually slow down for you, but remain the same for us. In other words, time travel.

Einstein's Theory means you cannot move at the speed of light. If you were close to it the light from your lamps would move a little faster but to the limit of the speed of light.

Your idea of time travel is backwards -- the faster moving thing won't go ahead in time only "age" faster relative to the slower.

Because they really don't want people to divorce? Or is is expensive cause that divorce lawyer's payments on his Porsche aren't gonna pay themselves?
