the young man should stay because 1. he has a wife and child 2. if he beats them he should stay alive to go to prison for it.
i'm working on reasons for the others, i take back my nun statement but i won't actually delete it
the disabled boy chould stay because it wuld be devastating on his parent if he died, they might come up with a cure for disabledness involving stem cells sometime soon, and if he's going to die his last few days should be happy, not being thrown off a boat
If I had to pick one I would choose the child first. The man should not be rescued as he has proven himself to be a menace to society with 7 previous convictions. The nun and the young doctor are my joint second choices but overall I choose the child as they have more chance of surviving as opposed to the handicapped child.
let them fight it out for the life jacket, surivial of the fittest.
thenks for the poll i ould save all of them because im good so there lol
I don't really think the young man can changed. After 7 convictions, he obviously isn't learning!
I'd say the nun's old and she'll probably be all for finding God, but she may not want to die, what if she has 'a lot to give' too? how elderly is she? if in her 60's it's possible she'll live for another 40 years or so and outlive 'em all.
Doctor's gonna die any way, but how long would she live for? any family? dependants?
the man- what did he do exactly and why? is he sorry? does his family need him?
the child- instnct says probably him/her, but i think the real question who would have the best chance of survivg with the life jacket? probably the young man or the doctor- depending on how far gone she is with her illness.
but at the end of the day none of us really have to make this decision. it's late at night and im puttibg too much thought into this hypothetical scenario.
I think that the young doctor should be saved as she is the most useful to society at least for a short time and if you save the child with disabilities he wont grow up to become anything important anyway.
Why would anyone select the option "None of them, it's just not fair to choose"? Surely trying to save one is better than doing nothing?
I would save the young man because he is young so still has time to change, he has a family, and as previously stated manslaughter in unintentional.
The nun is old and probbly lived a full life (although she's probably eyeing up the young man and thinking 'what if...?')
The handicapped child probably hasn't had a very good quality of life and won't understand what's happening to him anyway.
Young lady doctor, promising, but why save someone who's going to die soon anyway.
The young man has the most possibility for the future
I'd say the child, the nun is already at a certain age and has experienced a lot. The doctor is probably going to die soon, anyway, the man has 7 convictions and although there's the possibility he can chance there the negative possibility also. The child is still young, once he'll able to live with is illness - which was not mentioned if he's a vegetable or not - he should live.
well the nurse may save more lives if she is selected, who knows she may find a cure for her cancer. Although the hadicapped child could be the next steven hawkins
