I would say it has "legs", not "feet", but I guess that can be argued. Regardless, there's another answer that I seek.


You're the arbitrator. While I'll assure you that a (Survey) tripod has both legs and feet. The answer you seek may be a stick that has 3 feet in every yard.

Are we still waiting on this one?

 

Best I can come up with is sleep, but doesn't feel like it quite fits being 'always entirely unknown'; unless you count just while you're doing it you don't know that you're sleeping.  And you could be judged for napping at work....but I feel like I'm pushing it a little.
