...in Berlin I saw two men fuck in the dark corner of a basketball court. Just a slight jingle of pocket change pulsing.
You pricks have changed. For years ago and this would've been a twelve post subthread.
It's a lovely day out, and you decide to go for a walk along the tram tracks that crisscross your town. As you walk, you hear a tram behind you, and you step away from the tracks. But as the tram gets closer, you hear the sounds of panic -- the five people on board are shouting for help. The tram's brakes have gone out, and it's gathering speed.
You find that you just happen to be standing next to a side track that veers into a sand pit, potentially providing safety for the tram's five passengers. All you have to do is pull a hand lever to switch the tracks, and you'll save the five people. Sounds easy, right? But there's a problem. Along this offshoot of track leading to the sandpit stands a man who is totally unaware of the tram's problem and the action you're considering. There's no time to warn him. So by pulling the lever and guiding the tram to safety, you'll save the five passengers. But you'll kill the man. What do you do?
would definately die or just be slightly shook up and be weighing that up against the certain death of the man....since i cant quantify the first, I would delay to long and the moment would pass....the man survives.
OR . wonder why it is i can do the track switching but not yel to the man.
OR if the man was bad and someone who the world might be better of without, then I would make the switch
I say let 'em crash.
People who stand around on tram tracks not paying attention deserve to die.
