Question: An ant gets onto one end of a tight rope that is 1 meter long. The ant is traveling at 1 centimeter per second, but the entire rope is being stretched an extra 1 meter (1,000 centimeters) a second (it can be stretched forever).
Will the ant ever reach the other end of the rope?
Answer: He will reach the end of the rope eventually. Once he gets onto the rope, the rope behind him also stretches, so this must also be accounted for.
