Well, with the indications of the reduced energy density of the universe being close to unity, the topology of the universe is still an open question. Besides, even if the universe was closed (like the surface of the earth), the expansion of the thing makes it impossible to end up in the same place by "going straight long enough" unless going faster than light or having more time than eternity. Modest Mouse oughta do some more background research the way I see it.
