i woke up this morning to the sounds of the local radio station, z100, here in ny. besides the usual banter, the lead dj asked a question:
you're in a lifeboat with several other people. the boat is overloaded and will capsize soon killing everyone aboard unless you lighten the load by one person. one of the passengers is grievously injured and is certain to die soon, but is fully alert and aware of everything that is going on. could you throw that person overboard, knowing that that would save everyone else and that the person would know what you were doing while you were doing it?
personally, i dont know if i could do it. what do you think?
btw, there are more questions here
