Quote from: "Wechtlein Uns"I don't care what you people say, an innocent should never be dragged into a problem that they were not originally a part of. What if you were the fat man, and you were just waddling your way home to spend an evening play GTA4 with your fat little midget son? What THEN? HUH?!? HUH!?!That's my principle. No innocents involved. Can any say that is bad logic?
Quote from: "PipeBox"Another variant is where a terrorist has taken 6 people hostage, and called you over the phone, randomly. You can see on the nearby TV that the situation is legit. They demand you select one person, based on their voice, to die, and then they will surrender and the other 5 will be unharmed, but that if you select no one, all 6 will be shot. Other variants place you in the room, but I prefer being distant because then there is no other choice but to cooperate. If we want to make this airtight, we can say that even if the police manage to get in, he will still succeed in killing all six, so there's no point stalling. This has the beauty of placing the weight of the selection on you, the murder and situation on the terrorist, and your negligence will kill all of them so you can't afford to sit it out. I'd pick one, it's that simple.

Quote from: "bowmore"You're still left with the possibility that the terrorist is lying.I'd probably ask him why he just doesn't roll a die.
