    a) Case by case basis.
    b) My dog.
    c) Lassie. I love dogs, and I have never known a dog to want to commit genocide.
    d) My spouse. Let the Nobel winner's spouse save him/her.
    e) A dog.
    f) My family, but it would make me really sad that I couldn't save the dogs, too. Seriously sad.
    g) and h) My brother, but I might consider his wishes if he chose for me to save the cure instead.

    You can only rescue one of each of the following, which do you save?

    a) A child or an adult
    I value potential... plus you would think the adult can take care of his/herself better than the kid.

    b) A stranger or your dog
    *sigh* poor dog... What can I say? Own specie first.

    c) Hitler or lassie
    You are a wicked lady raindancing... To put this right after the previous question. Hitler... for there are plenty of other doggie "role models" where as Hitler is Hitler... For without him, history would have to be rewritten... Save him to be a reminder to us on what never to do.

    d) Your spouse or a Nobel Laureate
    Spouse is more useful than Nobel Laureate... by the time they get the award, they're like 70+... too old to do much more. My logic is horrible! HAHA

    e) A dog or a weasel
    Far too many dogs... so the little weasel. As long as it doesn't try to bite my finger off

    f) Your entire family or the entire canine species
    Humans first

    g) A bottle with the cure for cancer or your brother
    "cure for cancer" does really exists... *sigh* but just suppose it does... NO... if one bottle can be created, another can be made.

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

    ps- I know my answers makes no sense at all...

    A) a child - this wouldn't necessarily hold up in individual cases, but in general a child has more potential left in their life than an adult

    B) A stranger

    C) Hitler (but only if he didn't have the ability to lead people again)

    D) My spouse

    E) A dog

    F) My entire family, but this question is so terribly sad to think about.

    G) This one is really hard, but if the cure for cancer is completely legit and would actually work for all the people with cancer/will get cancer, then I would have to choose the cure. (Also my brother wouldn't be able to live with himself if he knew that to keep his life all these other people had to die. He's an ISFJ.)

    H) Same as above.

    You would sacrifice of 6 million civilian lives for a "reminder" of what should never be done? I don't think most people have to be reminded not to commit genocide..

    The rule is that I can only save one but you never said I couldn't send the one I saved to save the other so...

    a) A child or an adult, who I will then send to save the child.
    b) A stranger or your dog, who I will then send to save my dog.
    c) Hitler or lassie, who I will then send to save Hitler.
    d) Your spouse or a Nobel Laureate, who I will then send to save the Nobel Lareate.
    e) A dog or a weasel, who I will then send to save the weasel...or to bring back for lunch.
    f) Your entire family or the entire canine species, who I will then send to save canines.
    g) A bottle with the cure for cancer or your brother, who I will then send to save the cure.
    h) A bottle with the cure for cancer or your brother who just gave you one of his kidneys, who I will then send to save the cure.

    So I saved everybody and everything!
