A trolley problem

    In case you haven't come across one of these before, a runaway trolley is heading down the tracks, and people are tied to the tracks. You cannot stop the trolley, but you find yourself at a switching lever, and so can choose which path it goes down.

    Which do you choose?

    Most people will lie and say of course i'd make the trolley kill person A. But Mindfield showed that most people will do jack shit. Not out of malice. Generally people just freeze. Never been in a situation like this so i don't know what i would do.

    btw if you don't pull the lever then the world stops around you except you are still aging but you can not leave the switch so enjoy "freezing up" because lifes about to get very VERY boring.

    i would speed-dial my buddy uncle and have him rewire the controls to reverse the motor: key being that like you said, the trolly never stopped well it wouldnt it would slam into reverse. PROBLEM: mistakes were made and the trolloley reverses in highspeed into a busfill of downright RETARDS ( googl bus holding about fiddy folx of various sexual disadvantages ) which erupts into catches on fire flames.

    now you know that most of them wont make it out alive if you allow this TRAIN of thought to continue.. BUT you can still go back to the checkpoint and roll the dice (RTD) to see if you will be running over the kids or the geriatrics

    but if you dont act fast more trolleys will be spawned into the track at high velocity

    This was asked to me by a shrink.

    Didn't answer. It's a trick. If you try to save a person and your actions save 4 people but kill one other who would not have died would possibly put you in jail or be sued regardless of good Samaritan law. So Don't fucking answer.

    one person cant stop a train.

    the bodies of a few dozen might produce enough friction to stop it.

    whats my goal ?

    I would just let the trolley go whatever path it was going down originally and then I would pull the lever as it crushes people/person, wait until it stops and go back in reverse and finish off anyone left

    i would tie 9 people to the track with 1 person so there is no moral issue
