    Couldn't you trust Hitler to save a dog? Give him that at least.
    Why do we always come here?

    I guess we'll never know.

    It's like a kind of torture,
    To have to watch this show.

    a) A child or an adult

    d) Your spouse or a Nobel Laureate
    e) A dog or a weasel
    f) Your entire family or the entire canine species

    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    a) A child or an adult
    The child. Adults should be able to take care of themselves.

    b) A stranger or your dog
    See above. The adult stranger should be more capable than the dog to take care of himself, but if the stranger was a child, the dog should take care of itself.

    c) Hitler or lassie
    Lassie.

    d) Your spouse or a Nobel Laureate
    My spouse. Who cares about some random Nobel Laureate?

    e) A dog or a weasel
    Any of the two, probably the one that it's rescue would be easier for me.

    f) Your entire family or the entire canine species
    Too difficult for me to answer. But maybe the entire species.

    g) A bottle with the cure for cancer or your brother
    The bottle.

    h) A bottle with the cure for cancer or your brother who just gave you one of his kidneys
    The brother. I would owe it to him. Then again, if my brother did suffer from cancer...

    Depends on the individuals and their wishes.

    Imagine for example that the adult is the child's mother, and she's begging me to save her only kid she had with the love of her life who died two weeks ago. I don't think she'd be very happy if I insisted on saving her instead... Mind you, I'm not sure I'd want to save a child just to have him grow up without either of his parents...

    On the other hand, if the adult is a pedophile and the kid is one of his victims, then I'd happily let the adult die, no hesitation!

    So, it depends.

    b) A stranger or your dog
    I don't have a dog. So, a stranger or my cat? *sigh* I'll go for the stranger, but they'd better be worth it :steam: !

    c) Hitler or lassie
    Hitler in what year?

    d) Your spouse or a Nobel Laureate
    My spouse, duh.

    e) A dog or a weasel
    The first one I can grab.

    f) Your entire family or the entire canine species
    I don't care about dogs, so let's make it my family or the entire feline species. Not that it changes anything to my answer (my family), but it makes it a lot harder for me to consider

    g) A bottle with the cure for cancer or your brother
    Why would there be only ONE bottle with the cure for cancer ?? But anyway: my brother, unless he asked me not to.

    h) A bottle with the cure for cancer or your brother who just gave you one of his kidneys
    Same answer.

    What would you do?

    It totally depends on the situation.

    Answer away (If you want to give your reason, all the better)
    A. Child. They should have a future, even though they don't really know what they're doing yet.

    B. My dog. Why a stranger? I have no connection...I certainly have no problems helping strangers and I do just that, but I'm more attached to my dog.

    C. Lassie. Hitler's an asshole, I don't care if he's misunderstood or great. I don't care about either, but at least Lassie can't do anything.

    D. Spouse. If I wouldn't have chosen her, then I think my relationship has problems.

    E. Weasel. I don't care much for either animal, actually. =\ It's all about cats.

    F. My family. I care a lot less about biology.

    G and H. Brother. There's no condition saying something like "oh well the guy who developed the cure is dead and his lab blew up so no one will ever ever develop it again."
    Still using a needle to break apart a grain of sand.
