Riddle #1
First, consider a charged particle sitting at rest, next to a wire.  What will happen? 

Okay, now what about a charged particle that is moving parallel to the wire at some speed?

Okay, what if you now move yourself along with this second particle, so that it looks like it is at rest with respect to you?  What will happen to the particle in this case?
