Only energy can move at the speed of light!
You just invented the Lazer gun!

Wrong, it is a wave created from pulsations between electric and magnetic particles once they are caused to move. (hence electromagnetic waves) (but really it's neither since it shares properties of both)
Besides, on a small enough level, matter and energy are just about the same anyway. Unless you want to go into fermions and bosons.
But really, why are you trying to refute my comment with physics on funnyjunk of all places? Is you desire to try and be write that great? I could have given the actual answer but I tried to be funny instead, and now I have just wasted your time reading this long comment as revenge.

Since you are traveling faster than the bullet, you would surpass the bullet. Since you fired it in front of you, you would travel through it. Ipso facto, you just shot your self.

However, because you are traveling the speed of light, portable teletubbies would have eaten you long before now.

you will pass out before you fire the gun

You'd run into the bullet the next instant.

E=m(c^2) is extending this equation to account for a ton of particles in a confined area, like an atom, and you can determine the energy that would be released with that equation.

You've got to use relativity, not e=m(c^2). The velocity of the bullet relative to the guy is going to be v = ((guy's velocity relative to stationary position)+(bullet's velocity relative to stationary position))/(1+(((guy's velocity relative to stationary position)*(bullet's velocity relative to stationary position))/(Speed of light ^ 2)))). As you approach the speed of light, the energy needed to reach the speed of light goes up asymptotically, so it would take an infinite amount of energy to reach the speed of light. Assuming that you were moving at speed c, and the bullet at speed c + delta(v), the bullet will move away at a rate (2c + delta(v))/(1 + ((c(c+delta(v)))/(c^2))). This can never be zero or negative, so it will move forward.

Anyone else who was planning on commenting upon this post with an answer, don't worry. BaconDeity and I have it covered.

WE GOT THIS.

Let's say you were able to hold everything together for this to work and nothing got ripped apart, then the bullet would leave the barrel of the gun at the speed of the bullet+the speed at which you were moving.

It has to do with inertia

besides you approach infanint width do you wouldnt really be "pearson shaped"
#6 - anonymous (05/16/2010) [-]
the gun would already be ripped from your grasp and if not it wouldn't fire anyways but nice effort
User avatar #4 - loneman (05/16/2010) [-]
you would go faster than the bullet
#3 - InsaneSaint (05/16/2010) [-]
speed of light+gun= ******* BACON, or chuck Norris either way
User avatar #1 - kevyy (05/16/2010) [-]
try it u tell us
#7 - meepmeepBRRAWWWW **User deleted account** (05/16/2010) [-]
the bullet would either melt because of the friction from the air or the bullet would just go like you were still except a bullet speed faster than the of light idiots
User avatar #5 - justdefy (05/16/2010) [-]
you would reverse time and implode the universe. travelling at the speed of light is not possible
User avatar #2 - Pheirce (05/16/2010) [-]
ok so its impossible to go the speed of light we all knw that. but if you are going lets say 99.999% the speed of light and you fire a bullet here is what would happen. when you speed up time slows down, so firing a bullet to the person with the gun it would look like they shot a gun, everything normal. but to people standing on the sidelines and the cart and everything passing them. they would see everything in slow motion.
