Hey, I like raping babies as much as the next person, but on wheels? You need to get with the Microsoft program and make your install process smoother.

Flow of information

frankthechicken frankthechicken writes  |  more than 10 years ago Okay, a little problem that has been bugging me for the half hour since I've come back from the pub.

If I have a pole with a length of a light year, and I poke someone with it a light year away, presumably I won't receive any force telling me that I have poked that person until a year later. So, if there is a brick wall a light year and a bit away from me, what is to stop me from from moving far more than a bit with no forces opposing me until a year later?

Indeed, will I get the same response if I were to coil up the stick?

I know there has to be something wrong with this argument but I can't think of any through the alcohol haze , any ideas?
