    Three men are stuck in the middle of the Pacific on a sinking boat. You're there vested with God like powers, but only the ability to save one of the three. Which is the lucky one and why? Please think carefully before answering. Those are the facts, no other piece of information shall be given. Which man do you save from certain death, and why?

    You save yourself, seeing as you're there (hence you're one of the three)...

    i like how there is no comma in "you are there vested with the."

    if it was "you are there, vested with the"

    it perhaps would have been more obvious.

    I wonder how females would decide who to save seeing as it asks which man you'd save.

    Congratulations on getting part one. Now for part two. You are no longer one of the men on the boat. You still have the God like powers, but you must save one of three strangers you see stuck on the sinking boat. All are sure to drown, same as before, and you have the power to save one of these men. Same question. Which one and why?

    I was getting to that. It comes with the second part of the question. As you're asked to save one of three men, and you are not allowed to be one of them.

    It is tough. Also, females have a great deal of trouble answering this one, but when they finally do. They tend to get it right more often than men. Like I said, tricky question. I eagerly await answers

    You still save yourself. You're a woman on the boat. You have the power to save a man on the boat. But you're a woman, so save yourself. Just a guess.

    You're not on the boat, only the poor three men. One of which you can save. Which one, and why?
