    cover yourself with ready to go oatmeal and hope birds will come to eat...you can tie yourself to them and hope to fly away...

    pray
    Then ask such a question without giving options.

    Of course I look for alternatives. However, I do understand the purpose of thought experiments, and, as such, am able to temporarily disregard loopholes. The question here asks for a binary moral decision; it's not a puzzle. If the experiment were meant to be a puzzle, I would have solved it like one.

    I'd rather not try to force a round peg into a square hole. Morality is rarely binary, life and death even less so.

    Which begs the question on how you know for sure what the question was written for? Maybe it was to test our thinking skills... who the hell knows? I certainly don't. And you don't either.

    Like I said before, answer the question yourself and don't worry about how I answer it. And certainly don't come on here telling me that I have 'trouble' with thought experiments, especially when you don't know the goal of this particular experiment.
