So your in a situation where you can only save one life. Your favorite pet that you have ever had in your life or a random stranger you have never meant and know nothing about. So do you save your favorite pet or the random person?

Fuck, is it that many? and more now..
Ah, they should stop being so many.

I don't really do the pet thing, both my daughters have two dogs that they treat like children. I'd rather not be referred to as their grandpa but I let it pass.

There's always people somewhere on the brink who could be kept alive for the price of the upkeep of a western pet.

Images of fishing boats in ant/arctic waters taking the food of the beasts there for fat people's pets disturbs me.

Take my advice, don't listen to me.

The random person, under the theory that people have more value than pets, although that might be a stretch with some people.

Insufficient information to come to a decision.
Always question all authorities because the authority you don't question is the most dangerous... except me, never question me.

Most people do not think in a situation like this, they react. So of course it's going to be the pet.

What if I save the stranger, and then the stranger saves my pet?

Being truthful with myself I know I would save the human life over my favorite pet, though I would do my best to save both,....unless the stranger turned out to be Trump. (F*^% Trump)


Here's one for the pro-lifers.

You come across a science lab that is on fire. You run inside only to find a single baby along with rows of test tubes containing IVF embryos.

You only have time to save either the one live baby, or a handful of test tube babies....what do you do?
...inhabitants are, as the man once said, 'whores, pimps, gamblers, and sons of bitches,' by which he meant everybody. Had the man looked through another peephole he might have said, 'saints and angels and martyrs and holy men,' and he would have meant the same thing. John Steinbeck

I save the baby, but I assume the baby would grab a few test tubes on the way out. They grab everything else.

Teddy, Molly, and Sailor would unhesitatingly have defended me against any threat.  That was a mutual agreement.  I do not know this stranger, I do know and love and trust my dog.  My answer is obvious.

I think it's a little bit funny if the words you guys wrote are the same words the other person would say to you if they have to choose between saving you or a pet.
