My question is this: If we were to run an electrical cord up to the top of a high-rise building and send electricity up and down the cord, would the electricity travel faster going down because of gravity? If so, I believe it would only travel like a millionth of a nanosecond faster, and it would be immeasureable. I would guess that gravity can play some part in this, because if the gravity of a black hole can bend light then it must effect electricity.
