# Difficult Question

So we know that light takes ~8 minutes to get from the sun to the earth. But what If I have a friend standing on the sun and he waves to me (Lets pretend he can in fact stand on the sun, and I can see him waving :s) it would take me 8 minutes to see him waving.

But what if we are both holding onto a rope, and I pull the rope. Would it take him 8 minutes to feel and notice that I'm pulling the rope?
