What Would you Do If You could Travel at the speed of Light?

Im writting A monologue for my drama major work and I just some answers to that simple question.
The key word in the question is IF, because i know its impossible etc etc.
Think carefully about what it would be possible to do though.

Thanks.

Become infinitely massive.

This doesn't sound terribly fun, Id rather get there by eating poorly.

Then, since I'd be travelling forward through time ridiculously rapidly compared to outside observers, everyone I ever knew or cared about would die before I got to see them ever again.

Pass.

If it were physically possible, I think it'd be fun to...um...I don't know. I'd die before I got anywhere interesting. :P Assuming you could travel at faster than light speeds, I think it would be cool to visit a black hole. But that's about it.

If it were possible, I'd want to travel parallel with a beam of light. I'd use my hand to make a gap in it, and watch the gap all day long.

Crikey! This crazy clown causes commotion like the coming of Christ.

Certainly, still a curious and cordial cavalier in the countenance of crazed cads, curs and creeps who condemn courtesy as something corny. No cloud could collapse his crushing crescendo of comical crowing and crimson coiffure. This conjecture on culture comes circumlocutive, consequently...

You may call me Circus.

Break numerous laws of physics




edit: other smartass answer:

I'd burn through the sky, 200 degrees, that's probably why they call me Mr. Farenheit.

I think I might use something like that line of thought towards the end to help with the conclusion. Ive already got someone talking about being infinately massive

You wouldnt die before you got anywhere, you can be in two places at once, the universe shrinks to a single plane, distances are irrelevant once your travelling at the speed of light. Travelling faster does nothing for you. To an outside observer you travelling faster would mean something, but for you yourself nothing would change.

Ha. Thats going in as is.

And, if you feel like it, its not terribly neccesary, could also give reasons why?

Thanks

I'd travel some time into the future, thanks to the effects of relativity.
Check on the human race to see if it really is headed for destruction.
