There has to be a speed record that comes vaguely close. Or within a fraction of a percent.

When you can get the character moving faster than the speed of light anything else just pales in comparison.

A fraction of a percent of a superluminal speed is still nothing to sneeze at.

They added the word "discharge" to the spell Footsteps of the Divine.

True, but I cannot think of any  builds that even approach that fraction, most other speed builds are only about as fast as  a racecar or around that area.

How much damage would shoving a portable hole into a portable hole do? I vaguely remember a former DM of mine describing the resulting cataclysmic explosion. He might have been over exaggerating though.
Portable hole into portable hole?  By strict RAW, none at all.
You will, however, be inside someone's A-Hole.

Keep up, will you? Everyone else already knows this by now. :P

Also, what about a monk/kensai that gets throwing and distance on his body, then gets an arbitrarily high number of attacks somehow? (Re: Speed Boosts)

Strictly speaking, his body parts fly off and slap his opponents in the face, only to return to him. Or, if they're not returning, they just flop there and he no longer has an Unarmed Strike until he moves to that spot to pick them up. Interestingly, since any part of the Monk's body can be used to make an attack, this means he no longer has any parts of his body, but he still has all his other statistics (other than his unarmed strike). Again, just strictly speaking from the rules.
So you end up stuck in an endless loop, unable to act, forever.

In retrospect, much like Keanu Reeves.

And I'm the resident straight furry :p

Awakened Shark Skeleton Kensai, enhancing the Bite with Throwing and using whatever methods possible to get more Bite attacks (haste and Rapid Shot should work to make it 3/round).  Since the jaws are the only bones in a shark's body, the whole skeleton would fly with each attack.
I am constantly amazed by how many DM's ban Tomb of Battle.  The book doesn't even exist!

They're just as much cartilage as anything else, I assure you, and they have a cartilage vertebral column, so that's not, strictly speaking, true. Still, see above discussion of the Monk, only in this case the shark will merely no longer have any bones left.

The entire body of the monk is a weapon. So enhance the entire body. If the part you enhance breaks off, then in this case the entire body and all of its parts should break off of...well, whatever it's attached to at the time.

You are correct on it being cartilage, but I have to disagree with you on the idea that a skeletons would contain anything but the jaws.  I have dissected a shark before, so I know the anatomy.  The jaws are different in that, while cartilage, the entire thing is heavily covered in calsium salt crystals similar to bone in makeup (up to five layers think in Great Whites).  As such, when the skeleton is animated, this is the only part that would remain as it is not soft tissue (teeth are attached to the jaw).  A Shark Skeleton would indeed be a swimming pair of jaws and nothing else.

Ah, ok. I've only dissected dogfish, and the only thing we actually did with their jaws was cut through the articulation with the rest of the skull so we could look at their circulatory system properly. I didn't actually know the jaws had significant calcification. Spiffy. Guess we're using different definitions of skeleton (mine just being the skeletal system, yours being what would be likelier to be animated as a skeleton unless the magic for some reason preserved the cartilaginous bits, which judging from other skeletons it doesn't). My bad.
So you end up stuck in an endless loop, unable to act, forever.

Sunic may be more abrasive than sandpaper coated in chainsaws (not that its a bad thing, he really does know what he's talking about), but just posting in this thread without warning and telling him he's an asshole which, if you knew his past experiences on WotC and Paizo is flat-out uncalled for. Never mind the insults (which are clearly 4Chan-level childish). You say people like Sunic are the bane of the internet? Try looking at your own post and telling me you are better than him.
