Unless you are Alan Stern, I stand by the assertion that Pluto is not affected by the fact that you are alive in any way!

comment Is a bomb's shockwave strong enough to kill?
In 2006 in Lebanon a mortar landed just about a meter or two away from me. I was wearing a helmet, combat vest, and very light (shrapnel) armor at the time. There was no shrapnel from the (possibly improvised) mortar, but the blast blew me back into the wall behind me and I was out for a few seconds. I'm still here to tell about it!

comment How to emulate 40ft (12 m) of water?
By far the safest and easiest to implement solution. Any leaks or other issues that the OP will have with this method, he would have with any of the other methods as well.

comment Does a well-lit mirror weigh more than an unlit mirror?
Most of the effect of the light on the mirror will be on the non-reflective side, such as heating it up.
