    There are two options, only one choice.

    1. Choose to have New York City nuked (and your family is saved),

    OR,

    2. Choose to have your family killed (and New York City and its inhabitants are saved).

    There are only two options and you must choose one or the other, no improvisations.

    In short, keep New York safe or keep your family safe?

    What if you and your family live in New York City? Surely then we're all ****ed.

    (Nuke NY City, is my direct answer btw - I suppose family is too important for me, even if more people do end up dying. Sorry new York )

    As I know nobody in NYC I'd nuke the place and forward the bill to N. Korea.

    If you wanted a direct answer, you should have had the common sense to use a poll.

    I would save my family. I don't really like New York. Everyone seems to think it's the best thing since sliced bread, but I cba wit all the rapes, rain, stupid accents and all that SJP business.

    I would nuke New York even if my family was safe anyway.

    Kill my family, its for the greater good. Nuking new york wouldnt just effect the city, it would effect global trade etc etc, not to mention the hundreds of millions effected by radiation poisoning, the death of wildlife etc etc. It would effect millions of families, and it is not my place to say those families are any less valuable than my own so yup. Cold as it is, my family

    is it really just a 'more people' choice? surely one family member holds more value to you than one random NY citizen?

    I'd nuke NY no question

    Haven't got much of an immediate family; yet I wouldn't kill my mum for anything or anyone. Nuke NYC.

    Since N.Korea have declared a state of war with the South there're an increasing number of threads associated with nuclear wars and the end of the world. Hmm.

    Yes but one must not only consider how it will effect themselves.

    Well yeah one family member probably holds more value to me than the whole of nyc, however, let's face it, it's far more devistating to kill millions than it is to kill one family. If I kill nyc the world suffers, if I kill my family only I and some other people suffer. The world could cope better with the death of one family than a whole city.

    'the world' doesn't feel. if i kill my family i can't sleep at night, and when i do i probably have nightmares. if i nuke NY, a lot of people i've never heard of feel pain, but their pain is not my pain. i'd get over it.

    i swear i'm not this cold and heartless all the time

    The world doesn't feel pain, but the people in the world do, hence nuking NYC more people would be effected and suffer.
