here is something i've been thinking about a little. keep in mind i've never even taken a single physics class. I read that time travels relatively faster the farther away it is from a massive object like the earth. Something to do with the light waze frequency and the gravity if I remember correctly.... so, lets say there is a pickup truck traveling a very long distance from A to B, and in the back of the truck is an upright 1000 ft pole. Remembering what i've read, but maybe not completely understanding it, I would assume that after a while of the truck traveling from A to B, an observer on the ground would see the 1000ft pole actually leaning toward point B, since time is going faster up there, the top of the pole would reach B before the bottom did. My common sense tells me this is not true. also, there is a guy at the bottom of a 5000ft cliff and a guy at the top and they are both holding opposite ends of a 5000ft rope. The guy at the bottom tugs the rope. Would the guy at the top feel the tug before he saw the bottom guy tug it?
