    thats why all you of are getting on it at once
    I'm not really seeing how that would be very probable.... if the first group moved at a remotely decent speed why on earth wouldn't there be time for a second group to climb as well?

    My thoughts exactly. The helicopter wouldn't have to leave, it would just maintain as we take turns. I don't see the problem here.

    My ISTP bruthas.. i think you guys are getting too caught up in precision of technicalities (this the natural problem-solving approach).

    To shorten the question for effectiveness> Would you guy's choose to sacrifice yourselves to save the fellow climber's knowing that chance of your own initial rescue to be slim or would you be the moral villain and let none of your climbing party go due to having lost your chance?.
    "Where can you flee? What road will you use to escape us? Our horses are swift, our arrows sharp, our swords like thunderbolts, our hearts as hard as the mountains, our soldiers as numerous as the sand. Fortresses will not detain us, nor arms stop us. Your prayers to God will not avail against us. We are not moved by tears nor touched by lamentations."

    you are being rescued from an icy mountain with 4 other trapped climbers. the helicopter can't land so it lowered a rope ladder. 5 of you hanging on the ladder with you being the very last one hanging on to the rope ladder.

    you see the rope is under stress since and it WILL break if more than 4 people hold on for more than a minute. you being the last one, do you cut off the rope so the other 4 can live or do you stay on...if you gotta stay on the mountain, so does everyone else.


    whats YOUR reason for cutting off the rope ladder or staying on it
    This is a trick question meant to answer some kind of agenda.

    More importantly, what I want to know, is why the rescue team didn't inspect their equipment. Something so basic on a rescue mission is overlooked by a trained crew.

    I really doubt it, let alone in this kind of situation.

    wanna know how people think

    at what point do you make the choice to die to save four people? how much more detail do you need till you are comfortable enough to take your own life

    out of all the things that could happen, the new helper guy who packs the emergency equipment loaded the wrong rescue kit...blame whoever you want...shit happens. shit happened...your neck deep in it

    Okie the dokie. I pray to the God Zeus to grant me atonement for my sins in exchange for the smiting of an ENTP. He glady accepts. I then pray to him a second time to strike said ENTP (that'd be you) with a dazzling thunderbolt of dazzlement.

    How dazzling!

    haha, wow, i am amused at all the clarifying questions!

    i don't think anyone can answer hypothetical questons like this meaningfully.
    the situation dictates your actions, and i don't think people appreciate the situation or realize the gravity of their own mortality until they are actually facing it. hypothetical questions like this don't face mortality or the realities of a dire situation. question like this mean almost nothing to me.

    several of you are incredulous that this kind of situation would occur, or that it would be so poorly planned/executed. "i would have been prepared, the rescuers were unprepared, etc." sometimes this shit happens. just because it shouldn't theoretically happen doesn't mean that it doesn't happen all the time. crazy shit happens daily.

    Sure it does, but that's not the point. The point is this guy is using it to make a trick question - which means it falls apart.

    It wouldn't be too hard to have just asked the original question directly - save your hide or let others suffer in misery with you.
