If someone said you have to choose who dies, what would you do.

you or your mom- Sacrifice myself

you or your dad- see ya

you or your best friend- Sacrifice myself

you or a random stranger- Sacrifice myself

you or the love of your life- Sacrifice myself

you or a child- Sacrifice myself

my answers now what do you say.

I would honestly like to say I would do the noble thing and sacrifice myself (I think I would) but until I've been in that situation, I can't say. I can't imagine all the thoughts and emotions that would be racing through me at that moment. I don't know how I would react to it or whether I would try to rationalize them away. And it would probably depend on the situation I'm in, too. I just can't know.

@616vulture:

Many of my replies would be contingent on the peril faced. I'd gladly give up the last beer to whomever, but I might be less likely to fold in a high stakes game of poker even if it means I now own my best friend's house. Life? Really, people can make these noble declarations, but until actually in those circumstances, it's meaningless.

How about:

Yourself or a genuinely talented entertainer who brings joy to tons of people but you personally don't like?

Yourself or someone who's of more use to society than you?

Yourself or someone with more potential than you?

Yourself or someone you did wrong to and always felt guilty about?

Yourself or someone of the same gender who is significantly better looking than you?

Same question but opposite gender?

Yourself or someone who is genuinely a better person than you?

And here's the best one: If someone is threatening to kill a bunch of totally random people in the world, how many random people have to be at stake before you sacrifice yourself?

#28 Edited by Bruxae (14008 posts) - - Show Bio

Id probably sacrifice myself for anyone I like, I dont have that much love for life. But if I actively dis-like someone they are screwed, and if a stranger didnt strike me as one I would like on the first impression they are screwed as well.

There are so many other variables... also I'm avoiding the questions.

you or your mom

you or your dad

you or your best friend

you or a random stranger

you or the love of your life

you or a child

Not even lying, I don't think I have it in me to kill someone with words or choices. it'd have to be them attacking me to force me to kill them,

#31 Posted by _Zombie_ (10462 posts) - - Show Bio

Me on all of them. Except for the random stranger one.

#32 Posted by RBT (4535 posts) - - Show Bio

you or your mom- Sacrifice myself you or your dad- Sacrifice myself

you or your best friend- Depends.

you or a random stranger- I most likely won't sacrifice myself.

you or the love of your life- Sacrifice myself.

you or a child- Don't know.

#33 Posted by TheAcidSkull (18355 posts) - - Show Bio

Me or My Mom- I sacrifice myself of course, this isn't up for debate. and Even if we ignore how much I love her this is a persons life and she has 2 more kids to raise.

Me or My Dad- Me again, I look up to my Dad and love him greatly. Plus who's more useful to society him or a angry teenager who reads comics? duh.

Me or my best friend- Me.

Me or random stranger- the stranger, I would love to that i'd sacrifice myself but i doubt I'd do that.

me or the love of my life- me.

me or my child- not a parent yet, will tell you when I will be.

This. Someone I'm directly responsible for for their existence.

Others gets to live too, though not for the same reason above.

Apparently, most people really want to live until they're 80 or further, go through decades of arthritis or other things, and struggle with some kind of torturing illness in their final days that only mammals with carefully extended life span would conceive. Sometimes I don't understand the things I said. Really didn't intend to sound so mean.

If there's torture involve before my death then sorry, kids survive, no one else.

If I get to be turned into a cyborg then my answer would be different, I guess.

I am not a father but in this case I only sacrifice for my child. I would know that if I let him die, I would never forgive myself, this is why I wound t sacrifice myself for my dad and mom.

#44 Posted by CF12793 (2993 posts) - - Show Bio

i would sacrifice my life for my mom's. Dunno how she'd cope with it after though.

I lost my dad about 3 years ago and miss him everyday - I would do anything to have him back, even if it meant me not being around.

My best friend and I have had this conversation before, and we've come to the conclusion the World would be shitty if one of us weren't around, so it's a 50/50 split.

Sorry random stranger, I gotta choose you.

Haven't met the love of my life yet, but I'll tell you as soon as I do.

So it's a child, and not my child? Sorry kid.

By nature of my career I've volunteered to potentially die for total strangers, so I have no problem dying for those I actually care about.

Reality check: I'd kill this nutcase who has these people as hostages.
