Here's a crazy riddle for you. Figure out what I am, if you can:

I'm gone before you know it, yet I go on and on and on...

Can you tell me what I am?

Are you

Pi/pie

I'm gone before you know it, yet I go on and on and on...

People love pie and eat it quickly, and pi is irrational, so its decimal places never repeat and go on infinitely.

  • $\begingroup$ Life would be so much simpler and happier if the one that went on and on was the other one, and vice versa :-) $\endgroup$ – Phylyp Jun 19 '18 at 15:29

Are you

Infinity?

I'm gone before you know it, yet I go on and on and on...

There's the old joke that when you count to infinity, add one, and you still won't reach infinity. Infinity is endless.
Of course, Chuck Norris did manage to count to infinity twice...
