    Well, what if I hate the person just above me? An option would be to pull him off of the rope. Yay, saved.

    If you're on a mountain with 4 people and one of them is someone you hate...

    You find yourself on a ropeladder hanging from a chopper together with 3 other people. Two people are higher up the ladder, one is slightly down from your position.

    Your eyes catch the rope slowly tearing up near the helicopter. You quickly asses the situation and realise there is approximatly 1 to 2 people too much hanging from the rope. But you are not certain. You have 4 seconds of descision time before the ladder breaks and everyone falls. Cutting beneath you first in the case there are two people too much hanging from the rope would sufficiently strain the rope to break anyway, due to the time it takes to cut the rope.

    Will you cut the rope above you, or beneath you?



    The angles that make this question interesting is. Can you live with yourself taking the chance to cut one person to their death in the case one was enough. Are you willing to put two more lives at stake for the sake of an assumption. Would you cut the rope above you just so you don't have to live with killing someone else. Etc, etc.

    that the real question if you want the moral co-relations and justifications...i just wanna compare schools of thought and approaches to the conclusion without too much regard for the conclusion itself.

    more ambiguous, the better...or thats what i figure

    and what you said is actually what exactly what happens in a movie...i forgot which one

    Does the ladder break and leave everybody to die if the person on bottom quickly scrambles up ahead of the rest on the ladder?

    /

    just a question!
    I'm not saying I'd do it.

    See, the thing is that I would have been the first one on the ladder in the first place.

    cant hurt to try i guess...though if they are getting rescued, chances are, they already are...and they prolly won't be able to hear you over the blades of the chopper


    youd prolly have more luck lighting putting your cig lighter to their feet

    scramble up while the ladder already has the five people on it? DUH! changing positions doesn't change the weight
