Thanks for worrying about me badco lol. But it is a philosophical question. Some say it would not make a sound - you need an ear to hear a sound. Oh yes, it would make a vibration. But sound is associated to a receiver. This is a classic one and has gone back and forth.
But I like your straight forward response.
As for the wood cutter - ooch. He would hear his own sound as he was dying. But if the tree fell after he was dead. Maybe no sound.
Thanks Generique - I have always believed as you have mentioned - of course it makes a sound since other creatures are around to hear. As for the stealth tree, maybe it lands on a mega pile of pine needles, bird feathers and moist leave. Possible...
OK - I have also heard the variation of this line of thinking. If a husband is alone in the woods and screws up but his wife is not around to see - does he still get into trouble )) Interesting how men answer this question!
