That's not 100% true...

They can very likely die, but not all of them do.

Flying from London to New York by Concord, due to the time zones crossed, you can arrive 2 hours before you leave.

So a newborn can be born in London and be flown to NY, and actually be alive before the time of it's own birth....... unsure.gif

Ok, I just confused myself. tongue.gif

It means that you can't fold it more than 7 times in half. I have tried it and only got to 7 so i guess it is true.
