    If you were.....


    Invincible.

    Would that mean you could never be killed? How about drowning or being launched into space where there is no air? I understand if you were immortal you just plain wouldn't die, but is it different if you are invincible?

    If a tree falls in the woods and there is nobody around to hear it, does it make a noise?

    Which came first, chicken or the egg?
