    you're in a burning building

    building in on the verge of collapsing any moment and you have to make a choice of which to get first.


    35 y.o. man
    7 y.o. dog


    you don't know anything about either of their backgrounds (ie- you don't know if the guy is a pedophile vs community leader and family man)

    who do you drag out first not knowing if you will have a chance to go back in for the 2nd one.



    EDIT - damnit.... meant to make this a poll. Either way, it's simple.... Man or dog

    Do we know if the dog is rabid and has recently chewed a child's lips off?

    oh, I will answer this question....

    the man.


    However, there is one man I wouldn't piss on if he were on fire right in front of me. In that case.... even Cujo or Old yeller (the rabid one) would be rescued way before this guy.

    The guy is also 350# I don't know if I could physically drag his fat ass out, so it's a moot point (or at least gives me a built in excuse when everyone asks why I didn't save him. lol

    as long as I don't know the man is a pedophile or Hitler or something like that, I save the man over the dog everytime.

    (knowing what I know about the one guy I gave an example for changes why I'd save the dog first)

    I actually think I'd save the dog because it's so cute and cuddly! Unless the guy is freaking hot...

    after both being saved...

    the dog runs across the street..
    causing the car to swerve..
    kills you...and the man you just saved...
    the driver dies form brain damage from impact to windshield...
    her son dedicates his life to brain surgery form impact..
    saves the life of a man.. who then has a boy...
    boy grows up to become the next Hitler...
    world war 3 starts in 2075...
    Earth is reduced to small pockets of livable areas...
    population is at 100k people and shrinking...

    but ... you dont care.. because...
    YOU are dead!!!

    :eek: :cool: :p
