Hi, /u/idkwhattoputforthis-! Unfortunately, your post has been removed for the following reason(s):
While an interesting statement, there are no redditors actually doing math.

The version I read comes from a webcomic. It went something like this:
"The earth rotates and revolves around the sun, the solar system rotates around the center of the galaxy, the galaxy moves through space. This means that at any moment you are flying around in weird, ever-changing directions at colossal speeds. So getting carsick is obviously impossible".
Getting carsick is where some people draw the line.
Also appears in a book named "Why does E=mc2 (And Why Should We Care?)" by Brian Cox and Jeff Forshaw. And possibly some others.
Position is relative, and the centre of the galaxy is kind of an arbitrary choice.
“This means that in what is probably the most sensible choice of coordinate systems, you will never be in the same place twice.” Better?
Well to be fair, the most sensible choice of coordinate systems for humans is probably somewhere on the surface of the earth. For example, a system with the axis going north/south and east/west.
True, I simply meant the most “absolute” of reference frames—obviously most people don’t care about this frame or even the solar system frame very much.
But we're moving away from the big bang as well
Not quite, we're moving away from every single thing in the universe because the space between everything is getting bigger (the big bang was an event, that's like saying you're 10 miles away from Christmas day)
I meant the center of the universe from where everything expands away (at least I think it works that way. Feel free to correct me)
No—there is no centre of the universe.
Oh that's interesting! But in the example of the square scaling up there was a center in the small square and one in the big square... if the universe was infinitely small at one point doesn't that mean there was a center which was then scaled up through the expansion?
No, the universe was never infinitly small, just very very compressed. Of course, there's another video.
It’s more accurate to say that the radiation caused by the big bang appears to be receding from us
If the Universe is expanding (all signs show this) and will never contract, that's enough to never be in the same place twice.
perhaps this is why we experience time?
