What would you do?

Posted by: Dr_Obvious

There's a baby. There's also a crowd of 10 adults. They all face imminent death. Only you can save them. But you have to choose one or the other. Do you save the baby, or the ten adults?

  • As much as it would kill me to let a baby die, I think I would have to act, based on the numbers. Ten lives vs one. The decision would probably haunt me the rest of my life, but I believe it would be the right choice.

  • saving ten beats saving one regardless of age

  • 10 adults can make new babies

@rphk123 OK. Here's a real whammy for you. What if it was your baby? And what if it wasn't ten people, but 100, 1000, 10000?

If that was my decision to save one or the other, then I would save all and take my life instead. (Since you didn't tell the complete situation

I believe I made the situation perfectly clear. You have to save one, or the other. You can't sacrifice yourself. You have to choose.

The baby is much more replaceable.

What if it was YOUR baby?

If it was my baby it would be a genius like me and be worth saving.

Heh. You might want to look up the word 'humble' in the dictionary. ^_^
