If you kick it into your own goal...

If the ball is literally PLAYED to the player by the opposition, then no, he cannot be offside.

However, if the ball takes a deflection off the opposing player, then the player must be ONSIDE when his team mate plays the ball, regardless of his position when it hits the opposing player.

Although the player is in an offside position at the moment of the kick, they are not guilty of an offside infraction because the ball was not passed to them by a team-mate.

A player may not be guilty of an offside infraction directly from a goal kick.

Goal kicks, corner kicks, and throw-ins are specifically mentioned in Law 11 as exceptions.

What is the half circle in fronk of the penelty area for?

All players, except the penalty taker must be at least 10 yards away from the penalty spot when the penalty is taken. As the Penalty Area extends 18 yards from the goal line, and the Penalty Spot is 12 yards from the goal line, the distance from the Penalty Spot to the edge of the Penalty Area can be as little as 6 Yards. The Arc - not half circle - marks the area outside the Penalty Area, that is within 10 yards of the Penalty Spot, and therefore outside which players must be when the penalty is taken
