Please excuse the silliness of this but... As I understand it, the further away a galaxy is the faster it is moving away due to the expansion of the universe. I think I read that the expansion is something like 77km/sec per 3.26 million light years. Anyway, that means that there must be (or will be) some galaxies that are moving away from us faster than c. So here's the silly question. Imagine I was able to make (or keep adding to) an almost infinitely long wire, fly out to the nearest galaxy and attach one end of the wire to a planet, then fly back to earth. Then wait until that galaxy was moving away from earth faster than c and grab hold of the wire and let it take me with it. I would be moving away from earth faster than c. If the direction was right, I could jump off at say Pluto and pass the latest football scores on to the locals, which would mean that they received a message from earth faster than c. Ignoring the obvious 'impracticalities', time factors, g-forces etc., what laws of physics would stop this from happening?
