View Full Version : What kind of person are you?

I was having a discussion with someone, and she said she could never trade a life for lives.

An example is:
Armed people take over a crowded school. They want someone to come in so they can kill him/her for reasons of their own. If that person doesn't arrive to meet his/her death in a hour, they will kill the students of the school.

What kind of person are you? Would you send the man/woman to his/her death to save the kids, or would you refuse and find another way that is most likely to end in several school deaths and the deaths of the hostage keepers?

I, personally, would ask the man/woman if they were willing to die to save the school children. If he/she was, I would let him/her. I would never force that person though. If they didn't want to go, I'd find another way.

I would never force some one to be a martyr.

There's another "m" word for that.

I would do the appropriate thing.

Call Bruce Willis. He would save the day.

I should've foreseen that.

I would obviously choose option 3: run like hell.

Either Willis or Keifer Sutherland.


Otherwise, I think, like many people, I could not ask another person to die, it would have to be their choice. However, if they did choose to go, I'd do everything in my power to have some sort of plan that would allow them to act more like a decoy as the children somehow got saved. Until time runs out, it would be all about saving every possible life, I wouldn't just give up because the terms seem to say so.

Take care all.

Screw that, a kid > an adult. A kid still has much more potential. It goes in favor of the kids even more when there are more kids

Many lives > one life.

I couldn't let the kids die. I'd ask the adult is he/she was willing, but if not it'd be a swift 2x4 plank across the back of the head. That's if no other avenue was open, of course.

Ask the guy? I'd be the one in the school with the gun!

Whatever option would keep me and My beloved Levian together.

If it turns out, however, they want Levian, there will be victams, and it will go down in the books as the most Violent Hate crime this world has ever known.

I'd likely be the dumbass that got killed in a failed attempt to stop the gunmen.
