    If that was true, you'd be dead long time ago. There are plenty of opportunities to risk/lose your life for a stranger, if that's the way you feel.
    I'm still here because I don't choose to put myself in life threatening situations - which is besides the point. The purpose of this thread is to determine what our course of action might be in given circumstance, when forced to make a choice. But I have never come across such a situation.

    Just because someone asked me to choose, it wouldn't be any different from a natural disaster, or a random crisis. None of those things were brought upon by my actions, and I always have a choice to get involved if I felt like doing something.
    "Directly responsible" is not the words I would have chosen - I should have been more mindful before I quoted LucrativeSid. Perhaps, "played a part" - which doesn't mean I'm held liable for the deed... but it does mean I couldn't live with myself

    Me, in every instance. But wait until after my cat is dead. If my cat is still alive at the time I have to make this choice, then a bunch of people are out of luck.

    If you had to choose who would die:

    1. You or a random person?
    2. You or 10 random people?
    2. You or 100 random people?
    3. You or 1000 random people?
    4. You or 1 million random people?
    5. You or 1 billion random people?

    Be honest.
    I would get to 10 and be conflicted. Still, I think I would still pick me. Then at 100 I would be extremely conflicted but I think (Or at least would like to think) I'd pick me. A thousand or even a million is a possibility if I am being brutally honest with myself. You know you so well but probably don't know the others so well. But I just don't think I could live with myself if I did so I say I would stop at 100. Step 5 is kind of crazy to me though, because then that would mean 1 in 6 or 7 people would die, and that would include people close to you. I would NEVER pick 5.

    This is great, when we find this number, we can write it into the code of operations. Make it a regulation allowable-limit!

    initial reaction is of course me...i wouldn't let someone die if i could stop it...but...i know i'd have a hard time hurting people close to me too...so i'd struggle and have no clue which way i'd go.

    I'm thinking I'd let them all die. Can't be sure though.

    Can someone explain "I don't want people that I know to die" attitude ?
