10 MYSTERIES OF HIGHLANDER

We were wondering about some of the unexplained
elements of Highlander:
1 - If immortals heal completely, what about
the throat cut of Kallas... after all, one immortal regenerated after being
burned at the stake.
2 - What about all the "knowledge and power"
immortals get from the quickening... it is rarely explained.
3 - Just how is it that immortals know about
4 - Where do they come from? It seems that
no immortal really knows who their real parents are (ex: Richie and Duncan
5 - What about all those headless corpses?
Hasn't someone taken notice?
6 - Do they not fight on holy ground out
of immortal honor, or can they not? Is there some force which prevents
such a battle? (Even villainous immortals won't take a head on sacred ground)
7 - Why don't immortals take advantage of
technology (ex: guns, tanks, nuclear weapons... haha!) They certainly could.
8 - Does anybody (like Methos, maybe) know
when immortals started being born? (Speaking of which, when are we going
to see a Methos flashback???)
9 - Extremities: A baby or old man who die
of natural causes... just how young or old can an immortal be (can you
really have a 107-year-old immortal walking around for long)
10 - The Prize: all the knowledge and power
of all the immortals. Now that you've got it, what then? Are you a walking
library, master swordsman, or god? And if boredom sets in and you kill
yourself... does it all start again?
P.S. Does being disinitegrated qualify
as decapitation? haha!
