    It's formatted as a response to a question

    ie... What is the weather doing?

    It's raining.

    Just my theory anyway lol

    The weather is raining? Doesn't sound right to me.
    More like Q: "What is the situation of the weather today?"
    A: "It's raining"

    'It' refers to the situation. Something like that

    Ahhh the mysteries of life.

    If the universe is constantly expanding, what is it expanding into? Despite hearing this question asked a number of times I've never heard an answer!

    It isn't expanding into anything because there's nothing beyond the 'edge' of the universe.

    Because the universe started at a geometric point and nothing can travel faster than light the size of the universe a sphere whose radius is increasing at the speed of light. It's just an arbitrary indication of where there are things (matter and energy) as opposed to nothing.

    So you could never reach the edge of the universe no matter how fast you traveled.
