Even if you sat on the same couch all year, you'll never be in the same place, since the earth is always in motion, amirite?

False. If I sat on my couch all year, I'd end up in the same place I started, because the Earth would have made a full rotation around the sun.

This is why time travel/teleportation will be so difficult to perfect. Say you do manage to go back in time and expect to appear in the place you were...but the Earth won't be in that same place at that past time. You could teleport into the core of the planet of out in the void of space.

That's just dumbing down the fact that you'll never be in the same place twice

Unless the parallel universe where time runs backward is true. Then you will be in that spot at least twice.
