## Main Question or Discussion Point

Ok, I have come up with a new theory of traveling at the speed of light. This is totally theoretical and isn't phesable at any level. That aside, here it is.

Make a pole 1000 light years long. Now swing the pole like a bat. The tip of the pole should be traveling millions of times faster than the speed of light.

Again, this is theoretical. You can assume that the pole is strong enough to stand the length without snapping. Lets say the pole's total mass is 1 pound. Would this work? Please explain.

P.S.

Yes, I know about E=mc[tex]^{2}[/tex]
