Well, i just came out of another thread, and it got rather heated. Im an idiot i know, so if you wanna say that, just spare yourselves the trouble, and shut the **** up.

Blah blah.

Anyway, if you had the choice of letting a 2 year old baby girl die, or you could wager your life on her living. However, the stakes are pretty low. If you do wager, you have a 10 percent chance of saving the little girls life. You die, no matter what the outcome of her life. Or, you can just walk away, the little girl dies. Its not painful, she just quitly sleeps in, but she's dead.

Would you let the girl die? Or would you give your life to the 10 % chance of the little girl going on to live?

You've got a 10 cards lain out infront of you, face down. One is blue, the rest are red. Blue means she lives. The rest you can figure out for yourself.

Remember, if you agree to this wager, you die anyway.

Edit: Oh, and if she lives, you're guaranteered that she will live for at least another 20 years. As a bonus.

Edit2: No, the only one who'll suck your dick, is the guy who're killing the baby girl. But he will do it regardless of the outcome, even after you're dead.

Are you trying to kill me?

EDIT: If you're not, then I would sacrifice my life for the child.

I'd let her die. I mean, chances are if you bet your life on her living you'll both die. Why should both of you? If there were a 90% chance, that's a different story.

Walk away. Like someone above said, no need to get two people killed when you can save one of them.
#7
I'd walk away. Then again, I never really go anywhere in the first place, so I'm not particularly likely to run into the baby gamble situation anyway.

I'd let her die.

More people would be sad if both of us died, or even just me, than if she did. I know more people, have more friends, other such things. Plus, I hate kids.

you know how bad it feels to let some 1 die (kill them) if you walked away you would jsut feel incredibly bad. I have the luxury of not knowing how that feels but many soldiers have to live with the guilt of knowing they have taken a human life and that human can never get it back because you yourself took the action to take it. Im not on any side although i did choose sacrifice cause i know i wouldnt be able to live with myself after.

I've been reading the Tibetan Book of the Dead (or: The Great Book of Natural Liberation Through Understanding the In Between) and it seems that if you let her die, she would just come back. A different body, family, personality, maybe sex, and life, but the essence still comes right back. When blossoms in the spring disapear, are the ones next year the same or are they different? The answer is they are the same and they are different. Apparently in the ultimate reality, duality and paradox is reconciled so that sentence would make sense. So let her die, she'll be fine. Your guilty concsience might give itself a hellish after death experience though, as long as you remember the horrifying things you see are from your own mind you will be fine.

Id probably end up walking away, but I would be to conflicted to make an immediate choice I guess.

The most likely outcome of picking a card is the death of 2 people, walking away has a 100% chance of saving a life, picking a card has a 10% chance of saving a life. I'd walk away.

But if its all the same, why don't you just die yourself? It doesn't matter in the long run, after all. Doublestandards?

Well I'm not saying that it's the way to go, but if you were to save yourself, yada yada. But yeah, I shouldn't have said it like that

it seems like selfishness, but in no part is it selfishness, a 2 year old baby girl could be the next ghandi/hitler...

Yeah, I know what you're talking about, though it's a bit different. It was this one short story I read in 8th grade English. I think what happened was the guy had a lover, but became madly in love with another woman, which got his lover furious. In the end, I think he was punished for having a relationship with his lover (I don't know who she was, maybe a gypsy). His punishment is that he is told to choose between two doors, one with the tiger behind it, one with the woman he admirers. Somehow, his lover found out which door held what, and devised a signal so that she could tell him which door to pick from in the audience. The trick here is that you don't know if she told him to pick the tiger, because she hated the idea of him being with another woman, or the door with the woman because she loved him so much that she would rather see him with someone else than watch him die. You never know what is behind the door she chooses, though. The author wanted the reader to decide.

As for the thread starters question, although I have no idea what I would do if I actually was in that situation, but in a hypothetical situation like this, I would say that I would walk away. In the big scheme of things, either way, you would be making one death certain. If you choose to gamble though, you're adding another possible (and likely) death. So, in conclusion:
Walking = 1 death
Gambling = 1 death + probable second death
I noticed you increased the chances from 1% to 10%, too

Does it look like i care? The majority isn't always right by default, you realize that don't you? This ins't an argument, mother****er, this is a poll. So **** off, retard.

One day, someone will make a thread like this on super advanced galaxy spanning internets, and the poll results will be directly opposite. Mark my words. If not, humanity is doomed anyway. Fool.

So whoever put me in this situation I think I would stab in the eyeballs.

I noticed that wasn't a choice though
#38
i wouldn't. i'm a teenager, i've been in education for well over 10 years to do something with my live. if i were to kill myself to save a baby that hasn't had to do that yet then i would've spent all that time and effort (or lack of ) for nothing. maybe if they were older but when you're 2 you know absolutly nothing. also, you wouldn't be ass missed by people because far far fewer people would actually know you.

Maybe a good question (albeit a wordy one) would be "If there was a chance of you saving the life of a 2 year old girl, but you had to sacrifice your own life in order to get that chance, how high would the percent chance of her living have to be for you to agree to sacrifice your life for her? Or would you let her die regardless?"

*prays for someone to understand that*
