(Hypothetical Situation) There's a kid (who is not your kid) trapped in a car that is on fire, and the fire is reaching the gas tank. If you continually punch the window for a 30 seconds to a minute or so, you will be able to break it and pull the kid out, the doors can't be opened.

Do you try to save the kid knowing the car could explode at any time resulting in your amost certain death, or run?

I think I would have to try to save the kid

That you imagined yourself taking part in a hypothetical situation?

Or that you crashed a car, got out on time but left the kid inside?

I am 220 lbs.

If I put all my weight on a sideview mirror and use it to support myself, I'm confident it'll break off.

Use newfound object to break window in one or two hits.

Total time taken up, about seven seconds. Grab kid, run like hell.

And who the hell would punch a window when you can kick twice as hard?

I'm pretty sure cars - like most moving objects - are capable of exploding.
I watched that episode and it was to test if the car would explode if a shot was fired into the gas tank, not if a car would explode at all.


OT: Definitely save the kid. Couldn't live with myself if I didn't try.

Alright, no matter how you try to break the window, let's say it will probably take somewhere between 20 seconds to a minute, those car windows are tough anyway

some do, i wouldn't want to test that though.

as of now when i'm not actually in that situation i think i'd try to save him/her, but you don't really know unless you're in that situation

They're really not that tough. Unless you're laughably feeble, a car window will break in one or two hits.

I'd give the kid the thumbs up, wish him well on going to heaven, then go about my business.

not with punches or kicks though, unless you are ridiculously strong, maybe with a a weapon or something it can be done in 1 to 2 hits. Anyway that's not really relevant to the point of the question

The plan was to drink until the pain over.

Anyone too stupid to use a tool for this deserves to die an explode-y, firey death.
#26
I'm not a very brave lad but I reckon I'd save the kid as opposed to running in the opposite direction screaming and trying to protect my internal organs.

I know you want to try and get all clever and add in to the scenario and whatever, but really...

The point is the scenario is that you have not tool handy, and it is possible that there couldn't be a tool available.

Depends on the details really.....


Is there a crowd watching? Prefarably with some nice girls in it? ;P

Wait for the car to explode, and then have some delicious barbequed child?

I don't think anyone can say what they will do in a situation like that, unless they have been a similar situation. But I like to think that I would save the kid.

You can punch a car window and it will break. Job done. And I don't know what I'll do in this situation. I'd have to be in it to decide.
