Some scenarios here, asking various questions about various different topics. If it isn't too much to ask, I'd like to see what your answers would be. I will ask also, that there is no space for 'buts', 'ifs' or 'maybe'. A simple question deserves a simple answer, if you deem it necessary to expand upon your answer, then by all means do so, but please stick with what I've asked when actually answering. Thank You. 1) One day, you decide to use a brothel, you walk in, pay your £500 ($808.669, €563.723), you are then led to a room by an assistant, who leaves you with your 'purchase'. You then find out this girl is 15yrs old, and is an import from Russia. Not only is she illegal (at least in England), but she is also begging for your help. You've two choices, you either: a) you ignore the pleas of the girl, for all you know, she is lying, just so that her company gets more money out of you, when 'the goods' are received. In addition, you've paid good money, and feel that you are owed, so you get down to business, do the deed, and then leave without a mention to any other. b) decide to help the young girl, and phone the police from the room, thus not alerting the owners to the situation. You'd stay in the room with the girl until the police arrive, thus not causing trouble, or putting yourself in danger with management. Following the rescue of the girl, you then leave without any charges against you, or further problem from the brothel staff. However, local individuals may come to find out that you've gone to a brothel for sex, and you lose the money that you paid for the purchase you never received. 2) You are walking through a park one evening / night, when you notice a group of three men attacking and attempting to rape a woman. You have the opportunity to stop the attack, yet you risk putting yourself in danger.

No matter what you decide to do, the attackers do not run in fear at your presence. You've three choices, you either: a) phone the police, inform them of the situation, and then stand by and wait for them to arrive, all the while being fully aware of what is happening, though saving yourself from harm. b) phone the police, inform them of the situation, and to also tell them that you are going to intervene whilst the police make the journey, if nothing else, only to stall the attackers. The risk is that you could end up being attacked also. You do this until the police arrive. c) you ignore the situation, it isn't anything to do with you, and you don't want to run the risk of being seen on the phone, to what could be assumed as the police to one of the attackers, who may then come after you. You subsequently walk on by. 3) You are home alone one night, all tucked up in bed. You hear noises elsewhere in the house, and you get up to investigate. Upon investigation, you realize that you are being burgled by three individuals. All the contents of your house are insured, thus, except for personal items (such as photographs, computer hard-drive information etc) will be restored.

You've two choices, you either: a) you barricade yourself in the room you are in, then phone the police. Whilst the buglers ransack your house, and your possessions, you at least know that you are safe from harm. Eventually the police will arrive, and you will be safe. b) you phone the police, inform them of the situation, and then attempt to fend off the buglers, whilst possibly putting your life at risk in doing so. - Essentially, it is a question of whether you'd care enough for the belongings in your house, to risk your life over them. All can be replaced, it is just the inconvenience of going through the insurance companies which you would need to live with, along with the loss of personal items. 4) Late for a very important meeting out in the countryside (lets say the office boys wanted to get out of the city for a bit). This meeting could boost your career to new heights. Whilst taking a steady pace through a local village, you notice a man standing atop a bridge, ready to jump, if he were to jump, the fall would certainly kill him, you have the opportunity to talk him out of suicide.

You've two choices, you either: a) Continue on your way, your career is more important than some suicidal idiot, about to end his own life. If you miss the meeting, you may not get another chance to elevate your position for another year or two. b) You decide to stop and talk to the man, and eventually talk him out of jumping, thus saving his life. Whilst you have missed out on a vast opportunity, you have saved the life of another person, who (after talking with you) realizes he has much more to life for. 5) After a car crash, you are out of a car, and you are forced to take the bus to work. In addition to not having a car, you are also wounded. You travel at a busy period, and as such, the bus is busy. There are a number of people standing, including an elderly person, who has obvious signs of weakness. You have the opportunity to give up your seat.

You've three choices, you either: a) you make your case to another healthy passenger, stating that they should give up their seat to the elderly person. b) You give up your seat to the elderly person, as nobody else will, also figuring that you are younger, and more healthy, thus are able to resist pain a little more. c) You stay put, and quiet. You are wounded too, and are in need of a seat just as much as any other. In addition, you don't wish to make a scene. [COLOR=red]There are no right or wrong answers (as such), and although I would like people to answer these questions to the point, a little sub-text isn't anything to fear from. The conditions of the above questions are only guidelines, if you wish to elaborate on another, then by all means, do.[/COLOR]

Barricade myself and find a weapon. It's more to do with not wanting the bother of killing them than anything else which would cause more trouble than reclaiming the money through the insurance companies.

Aerilon;5172570Some scenarios here, asking various questions about various different topics. If it isn't too much to ask, I'd like to see what your answers would be. I will ask also, that there is no space for 'buts', 'ifs' or 'maybe'. A simple question deserves a simple answer, if you deem it necessary to expand upon your answer, then by all means do so, but please stick with what I've asked when actually answering. Thank You.

Alright, though I must say that chanches are people would react differently when it comes down to it. Knowing what you "should" do (what seems right to you, be it because of your morals, social pressure or such) might be different from what you'd actually do (or lack to do) .

1) One day, you decide to use a brothel, you walk in, pay your £500 ($808.669, €563.723), you are then led to a room by an assistant, who leaves you with your 'purchase'. You then find out this girl is 15yrs old, and is an import from Russia. Not only is she illegal (at least in England), but she is also begging for your help. You've two choices, you either:

b) decide to help the young girl, and phone the police from the room (...)

B. Phone the police, wait for the to come in and deal with it. Besides, you might be able to get your money back (I doubt the brothel would provide you with a proper, legla, prostitute). Besides, why use services you don't feel comfortable with? That would be like ending up with a she-male, so you wouldn't want to use those services and you might loose your money in the first place (sounds like a pretty fishy brothel ).

Ofcourse I'm going to guess that normally it's the customer who points at person he'd like to get entertained by and then pay but lets enver mind that.

2) You are walking through a park one evening / night, when you notice a group of three men attacking and attempting to rape a woman. You have the opportunity to stop the attack, yet you risk putting yourself in danger.

No matter what you decide to do, the attackers do not run in fear at your presence. You've three choices, you either:

b) phone the police, inform them of the situation, and to also tell them that you are going to intervene whilst the police make the journey, B: Phone police, then approach (if I saw no weapons on them), shouting at the rapists to stop. If the situation becomes threatening (they run towards you to assault you), ith might be bet to run away because they porbably don't want a friendly chat... but try to return to the scene (rapist and/or victem, depending on what seems more wise at the time).

3) You are home alone one night, all tucked up in bed. You hear noises elsewhere in the house, and you get up to investigate. Upon investigation, you realize that you are being burgled by three individuals. All the contents of your house are insured, thus, except for personal items (such as photographs, computer hard-drive information etc) will be restored.

You've two choices, you either:

b) you phone the police, inform them of the situation, and then attempt to fend off the buglers

B: Phone police (they should be there within 10 minutes and organize a search party), make sounds, start yelling for them to get the hell out of your house. I'd expect them to run (most criminals tend to make a run for it when they feel threatend or are caught), they might assault me, in which case I'd have to try and run or defend myself.

Under excellent conditions you might be abel to take your photocamera (cellphone, digital camera) and snap some pictures and then hold on to it but I guess there wouldn't be a real oppertunity to do so or you probably wouldn't think about when caught by suprise.

4) Late for a very important meeting out in the countryside (lets say the office boys wanted to get out of the city for a bit). This meeting could boost your career to new heights. Whilst taking a steady pace through a local village, you notice a man standing atop a bridge, ready to jump, if he were to jump, the fall would certainly kill him, you have the opportunity to talk him out of suicide.

You've two choices, you either:

How would we know the guy is going to jump? The scene might look somewhat normal, slightly out of the ordinairy or a bit weird (but all are no sign for alert unless things appear to be really worrying). But okay, lets say we somehow know the guy is clearly in a position/place to jump. Plenty of times those are attentionwhores anyway. People who kill themselves for real would just do it. I would eb guessing again but I'd think a public suicide would mean the perosn would just wander around a bit, perhaps hold for a brief moment and then make the leap. Or wait around a railway line (nothing too strange about that), and suddenly jump only a few seconds before the train makes impact.

So a likely way to end this correctly would be: call police, perhaps wait for them to arrive, go on your way nd let the police deal with the perosn who is most likely attention whoring. Just as with threats (bomb threats and such) over the phone or mail, pretty much all of them are BS.

b) You decide to stop and talk to the man, and eventually talk him out of jumping,

But since my choices are limited, and let's assume things will go as you wrote, then option B is my choice. Besides, what kind of company would you be working for if they didn't understood such exceptional situations and acknowledge you did the right thing? Sounds like some cold hearted bastards to me.

5) After a car crash, you are out of a car, and you are forced to take the bus to work. In addition to not having a car, you are also wounded. You travel at a busy period, and as such, the bus is busy. There are a number of people standing, including an elderly person, who has obvious signs of weakness. You have the opportunity to give up your seat.

You've three choices, you either:

Depending on the state of my car and my injuries I'd call the road service (tow away), and then sfind my way home or to a GP, first aid post or hospital. Leaving your car behind somewhere and going about your way with injuries sounds unwise. But alright, say I lost my sanity and did jsut that... in the bus I'd expect others to make room for the eldery, but if in bush packed with bastards, I'd give up my seat and then ask an other person if I could have their seat. I'd hope they would unless I had some pityfull injury like a tiny cut on my skin (thus don't appear to be hurt, in pain, less mobile or such).

So I'd go with B. b) You give up your seat to the elderly person, as nobody else will, also figuring that you are younger, and more healthy, thus are able to resist pain a little more. Edit: Wait, are we speaking about an illegla brothel here? With the proper permits brothels are legal in the Netherlands and I assumed that was the case in most EU nations... but if it is an illegal brothel... I'd walk out, ask my money back, leave and call the police unanimously to tip them off.

You then find out this girl is 15yrs old, and is an import from Russia. Not only is she illegal (at least in England), but she is also begging for your help.

There are at least two other choices - leave without bunking up with the child, or not using a brothel in the first place. Aside from the moral considerations, genital herpes has no cure. I can't answer a question like that, as the entire concept is beyond contempt.

2) You are walking through a park one evening / night, when you notice a group of three men attacking and attempting to rape a woman. You have the opportunity to stop the attack, yet you risk putting yourself in danger.

No matter what you decide to do, the attackers do not run in fear at your presence.

Phoning the police is something of a given. As for involvement, it would very much be a conditional affair depending on the armaments and overall appearance of the psychopaths. As Nem said, heroics aren't all they're cracked up to be. Most of us here aren't Bruce Lee and would be soundly thrashed by three opponents, and if you're nothing more than another patient for the ambulance crews to help out you're actually being more of a hindrence to the woman than help. After all, if you're still conscious afterwards you'll be in a better position to help her afterwards. Rapists are opportunistic predators, however, and your notion that they won't quickly leg it when discovered is a highly unlikely one. Particularly if they're chavs.

Knowing me, though, I'd probably still shout at them and get myself killed.

3) You are home alone one night, all tucked up in bed. You hear noises elsewhere in the house, and you get up to investigate. Upon investigation, you realize that you are being burgled by three individuals. All the contents of your house are insured, thus, except for personal items (such as photographs, computer hard-drive information etc) will be restored.

There are more considerations here than you have pointed out:

  • People may have families, who probably don't sleep together in the same room.
  • Attacking the thugs will generally earn you a harsher sentence than they'll get. There's an old joke about being sued for inflicting food poisoning on a burglar as a result of leaving stale food in the fridge.

Contrary to the stereotype portrayed on TV, burglars very rarely want trouble and will leave before finding it, particularly when raiding a home they don't know is habited or not. They have but one goal in mind - get in, get as much crap as they can carry, then get out and make a break for it without being spotted or caught. There was a guy skulking around in my back garden only a couple of months ago, who ran off faster than a sprinter when I merely poked my head out of the window to see what had set the outside light off.

Simply by alerting the burglar that you're awake and mobile will probably drive them out. Making a physical appearance might not even necessary, but if it is - a big stick or knife of some kind would be nice. Baseball bats and hockey sticks might make for extremely poor weapons when in the close-quarters environment of your hallway, but they're intimidating enough to drive people off.

Keeping a smaller, more useful weapon on your person in the event that you're unlucky enough to find a burglar who's willing to have a fight wouldn't be an unwise idea, though. Life throws plenty of shitballs in my direction, and I'll be damned if the last place of sanctuary I have left in this world is desecrated by a chav.

4) Late for a very important meeting out in the countryside (lets say the office boys wanted to get out of the city for a bit). This meeting could boost your career to new heights. Whilst taking a steady pace through a local village, you notice a man standing atop a bridge, ready to jump, if he were to jump, the fall would certainly kill him, you have the opportunity to talk him out of suicide.

Given past experience (though admittedly, mostly with helping late-night drunks get themselves out of unwitting danger and ultimately home) I'm probably stupid enough to stop and try to help him. He'd probably jump anyway though. I'm not exactly a 'peppy' person.

5) After a car crash, you are out of a car, and you are forced to take the bus to work. In addition to not having a car, you are also wounded. You travel at a busy period, and as such, the bus is busy. There are a number of people standing, including an elderly person, who has obvious signs of weakness. You have the opportunity to give up your seat.

Now that very much depends on the injury I've sustained, doesn't it? If I've got a broken arm, standing up for an old lady isn't going to make a blind bit of difference. If my leg has been shattered, or I've done my back in, on the other hand, she's probably going to have an easier time standing than I am. Though knowing me, I'd probably offer regardless. Not long after the last time a car hit me, I was on the train to work and I did exactly that, despite having a Vauxhall badge embossed on my arse.

Edit: Wait, are we speaking about an illegla brothel here? With the proper permits brothels are legal in the Netherlands and I assumed that was the case in most EU nations... but if it is an illegal brothel... I'd walk out, ask my money back, leave and call the police unanimously to tip them off.

Brothels are illegal in the UK. In fact they're illegal in most of Europe, though tolerance varies in each sovereign state. Given that Aerilon lives in the UK, I'm assuming he intended for it to be an illegal brothel, given that the 'illegal' part would be redundant anyway.

I totally forgot about your silly foreigners ( ;) ) getting all worked up about some one paying for sex, using a bit of cannabis and all that. I neither visit brothers, nor coffeeshops (= softdrugs store) but I consider them such a normal thing that I forget about how these thigns are regulated aboard. =p

People are going to whore themselves (and others are willing to pay for it), it's said to eb the oldest job (wouldn't call it a career..) out there, so why not legalize it, regulate it and make some tax money of it while at it.

Same story with soft drugs.

I'd almost dare to say, if it doesn't hurt/harm/offend/.../ anybody who doesn't want to get involved it may be perfectly okay to legalize it. If it does negatively affect others against there will (they can't avoid it in any reasonably way), slap some restrictions on it or ban it all together.

Aerilon;5172570 1) One day, you decide to use a brothel, you walk in, pay your £500 ($808.669, €563.723), you are then led to a room by an assistant, who leaves you with your 'purchase'. You then find out this girl is 15yrs old, and is an import from Russia. Not only is she illegal (at least in England), but she is also begging for your help.

Wouldn't be at the brothel in the first place.

2) You are walking through a park one evening / night, when you notice a group of three men attacking and attempting to rape a woman. You have the opportunity to stop the attack, yet you risk putting yourself in danger.

No matter what you decide to do, the attackers do not run in fear at your presence.

I'd shoot them, or sneak up and stab them. Even if they are armed they are busy with the whole raping business, so I can probably kill them before they notice me, assuming I have a weapon (which I would.)

3) You are home alone one night, all tucked up in bed. You hear noises elsewhere in the house, and you get up to investigate. Upon investigation, you realize that you are being burgled by three individuals. All the contents of your house are insured, thus, except for personal items (such as photographs, computer hard-drive information etc) will be restored.

Again, I'd shoot them. Well no, actually I'd walk out with my shotgun and tell them to leave, and if they do anything but walk directly away from me they get blasted.

4) Late for a very important meeting out in the countryside (lets say the office boys wanted to get out of the city for a bit). This meeting could boost your career to new heights. Whilst taking a steady pace through a local village, you notice a man standing atop a bridge, ready to jump, if he were to jump, the fall would certainly kill him, you have the opportunity to talk him out of suicide.

If he wants to commit suicide he can do it. Maybe I'd call the police so they know to get ready to hose off the pavement.

5) After a car crash, you are out of a car, and you are forced to take the bus to work. In addition to not having a car, you are also wounded. You travel at a busy period, and as such, the bus is busy. There are a number of people standing, including an elderly person, who has obvious signs of weakness. You have the opportunity to give up your seat.

Just how badly wounded am I? I mean if I'm suppose to be resting my leg, lest it heal improperly, I'll stay seated. But if it's just a bit of pain I'll be nice and give up my seat.

All can be replaced, it is just the inconvenience of going through the insurance companies which you would need to live with, along with the loss of personal items.

In addition, you've paid good money, and feel that you are owed, so you get down to business, do the deed, and then leave without a mention to any other. b) decide to help the young girl, and phone the police from the room, thus not alerting the owners to the situation. You'd stay in the room with the girl until the police arrive, thus not causing trouble, or putting yourself in danger with management. Following the rescue of the girl, you then leave without any charges against you, or further problem from the brothel staff. However, local individuals may come to find out that you've gone to a brothel for sex, and you lose the money that you paid for the purchase you never received. [/QUOTE]

Funny story, something kinda like this happened to a buddy of mine in the Philippines. Except the girl wasnt an illegal russian import, she was a "18 year old virgin" who, after my friend paid for her, she went to go buy a condom real quick for him since he didnt have one, but she never came back.

No matter what you decide to do, the attackers do not run in fear at your presence. [/QUOTE] Oh you are talking about that high school gang rape. Well, following the trend, you would have to watch for a few minutes and do nothing, and then walk away. [QUOTE=Aerilon;5172570] 3) You are home alone one night, all tucked up in bed. You hear noises elsewhere in the house, and you get up to investigate. Upon investigation, you realize that you are being burgled by three individuals. All the contents of your house are insured, thus, except for personal items (such as photographs, computer hard-drive information etc) will be restored.

You've two choices, you either: a) you barricade yourself in the room you are in, then phone the police. Whilst the buglers ransack your house, and your possessions, you at least know that you are safe from harm. Eventually the police will arrive, and you will be safe. b) you phone the police, inform them of the situation, and then attempt to fend off the buglers, whilst possibly putting your life at risk in doing so.

You fail to take into the account the armory I have under my bed. I own a 20 gauge shotgun and an M-4 rifle (the same type the Marine Corps issues out). Robbers arnt going anywhere. [QUOTE=Aerilon;5172570] 4) Late for a very important meeting out in the countryside (lets say the office boys wanted to get out of the city for a bit). This meeting could boost your career to new heights. Whilst taking a steady pace through a local village, you notice a man standing atop a bridge, ready to jump, if he were to jump, the fall would certainly kill him, you have the opportunity to talk him out of suicide.

Why stop him? Its his life, he wants to end it, let the bastard go. Reduce the surplus population.
