I would like to take a moment to discuss in your opinion who got closest to the speed of thought, and why you think so.....
The Speed of thought, who got the closest?
"You do realise that the speed of thought is subjective depending upon you speak about. A normal human thinks at one speed while the Flash thinks a lot faster. Both think at the speed of thought - but 1 is quicker than the other."Exactly, I remember on the JLU cartoon Flash faught Sinestro. Sinestro said his attacks could move just as fast as Flash can, but Flash told him but he thinks to slow to preform them.
Omega Mega Man says:
"I'm talking about moving so fast as to all most teleport to a place by thinking about it. Wally could move in the speed force and travel through time without the need of a cosmic treadmill why was he in fact faster than barry?"
In many Flash comics Wally and Jay comment that Barry was the best Flash - but their meaning I think is that Barry understood his power and it's applications the most (so he could do more tricks).
Wally appears to be the most powerful, however trying to seperate Barry and Wally thinking speed is difficult as both have the capacity to think at literally the speed of light.
"It would be just about 0, for a thought starts in your head and stays in your head. You would need telepathy to measure that. I've always wondered if the Flash would outrun his thoughts, especially as he approaches light speed. "ok see thats what i meant i worded it horribly. which flash came closest to out running his thoughts?

"Superkitty says:I don't think Flash would. I think the Speed Force would enhance his thoughts along with his speed. So as long as his speed keeps increasing so would his thought speed."It would be just about 0, for a thought starts in your head and stays in your head. You would need telepathy to measure that.

If I recall right he wasn't everywhere at once, it just seemed like it because he moved fast, and that was only in his city, not worldwide or anything. And the dimension thing wasn't total either. He could see and touch things in other dimensions (which is how he grabbed the old guy) but he wasn't doing that 24/7.
sorry, i'm confused here...
most Flash's easily outpace the 'speed of thought'... hell, even Superman moves a lot quicker than the 'Speed of Thought'...
who's idea was it that the speed of thought is the 'fastest thing around'? it's not, thought is actually pretty slow compared to stuff like the speed of light...
the total 'speed of thought' is between 550 and 750 milliseconds for a normal human... thats the time it takes the electrical impulse to travel from the optic cells up the neurons to your brain and for the thought to be recognized.
so what's that... S=D/T standard equation... around 200, maybe 220 miles per second?
wow... that's pretty frickin' slow compared to the standard speed of light, which both Superman and Flash have beaten in recent issues...
lets put them together...
Speed of sound at sea level = 0.211446403 miles per second
Speed of Thought = 220 miles per second
Speed of Light = 186,282.397 miles per second
wow... speed of thought sucks lol
