you are forced, at gunpoint, to make this decision. there are two options. on the table in front of you, lie 2 remotes, each with one button. if you press the right button, it will detonate a bomb, and kill 2 of your closest loved ones. be it your partner, brother, sister, parents, pet dog, whatever. if you press the left button, it will detonate 6 explosives. they can be anywhere in the world, and they're all at different locations. perhaps they're in the desert, but who knows, they could be in a crowded subway, a bus, an office building. which one would you pick? would you kill two of your loved ones, or would you risk it, and detonate the 6 explosives, with the chance of dozens, or perhaps hundreds of deaths, but which could also lead to no deaths at all? i would personally probably pick the 6 explosives, and try to live with myself if it was in a crowded place. im not proud of it, but i value two lives of loved ones more then a possible disaster.

You guys are selfish horrible people who only want to protect your family, and I totally agree. Six bombs, man, most of the world's surface is unpopulated or underwater, like Mihail said, so who cares?! People die every day, but (call me selfish, but you think the same thing) it's not as bad if you don't know them or the people who love them. It might be brutally honest, but at least it's honest.
