I'd rather eliminate the source of the threat first. if it's a man, I'd most likely kill him/her. if it's a disease or something, I'd have her saved by whatever means. heck, I can sense her death 10 minutes earlier, why can't I do that?abscess wrote:1) Your partner (wife/husband/boyfriend/girlfriend/sex-toy) is not a criminal in any way, shape or form, but has to die for some greater good. Your partner does not know about it but you've been aware this could happen for some time now (let's say some months). You have only ten minutes now, would you rather:
- do it yourself? If that is the case, how would you do it?
- have someone else do it? If that is the case, there is not much of a choice other than a slashed throat.
NOTE: You CANNOT offer yourself. If you happen to kill yourself to save your partner they will kill him/her anyway. She/he will die.
I'd take the wisdom and trash the shit that I can't be happy for the rest of my life. what the heck? you can do much with it.abscess wrote:2) You are offered true and complete wisdom in exchange for your chance of finding real happinness. Take into account that you aren't bound to find real happinness and, in fact, you may really never do so in your life-span, but by taking this "true and complete wisdom" you will lose the chance completely. What's your choice?:
- "I take the wisdom. Maybe I can do some good for other people this way."
- "I take the wisdom. I want to know EVERYTHING."
- "Thanks, but no. I'd rather be a happy fella!"
- "FU*K YOU! [insert coherent/incoherent reason], YOU SONUVABEETCH!!"
as long as it's purely coincidental and my "loved one" doesn't have any intentions of doing that AT ALL, I'd most likely cover it up.abscess wrote:3) One of your loved ones has commited a heinous crime, but it was a complete accident that no one could have seen coming. Due to your loved one's past records, he/she will be put to death if it is discovered that he/she is guilty of said crime. Do you:
- Cover up for your loved one? Doing so will incriminate someone else you may or may not know or care, but there is a better chance of that someone else not ending up executed in the public square (and maybe not executed at all.... just "maybe").
- "Sorry 'loved one'. Tough luck!"
try to adapt. I was put into this situation for some reason. I definitely won't throw away my life because something ridiculous / unexpected happens.abscess wrote:4) You have made a Rip Van Winkle-style(-ish...) time-travel (you went to sleep and ended up waking up in the distant future). You wake up in a desolate place no one knows about but it happens to be near a populated city. The date is 3000 years from now. All of your loved ones have died and you don't know anyone else. Your family last-name has disappeared completely just after a couple hundred years after you went to sleep so there are no familial ties to this new world. You can't communicate with these people since you don't know the language. They don't even know you were asleep for more than 3000 years and don't pay much attention to you thinking that you may be just another foreigner around or a crazy guy babbling incoherently. Do you:
- End your life since there is nothing for you in this place.
- Try to adapt to this strange world.
just sit and watch. if it's God's will, then I have no right to say anything.abscess wrote:5) All the people you care about is away in a trip (family, friends, they even took your pet if you have one), in other words, you are alone at the moment. It's suddenly said that the entire world will end in 5 hours, it is true and there is nothing you or anyone can do about it. Do you:
- End yourself. At least you will have control over that moment.
- "End" other people. You can't be forced to pay for those crimes anymore. With luck you will be too much into it that you won't notice when everything is over.
- Kill the people you hate most.
- Go to sleep. You rather be asleep when you die than see it happen.
- Sit somewhere and wait for the moment. You want to see it with your own eyes.
immortality will just bring sufferings. I don't want to see my loved ones die one by one while I myself stay healthy and young. moreover, I don't believe in reincarnations nor immortality.abscess wrote:6) It happens to be a well known fact that the cycle of rebirth exists, you don't know what the "goal" is, or if there is any. In this cycle every time a person is reborn, a part of what makes that person his/herself is passed on to the future reincarnation, it could be something meaningful, like a purpose, or meaningless, like what's the shape of your nails. In the future, it could happen that, with n number of rebirths you are reborn as yourself, if not completely, it will have an important part of what makes you yourself, or it could also happen that you are completely forgotten (or deleted, however you wanna see it), never to come up again at all.
By some reason, you discover a method to extend your life indefenetly. You will not age nor get younger, you will not have any special "power" other than being able to live, theoreticaly, forever. In other words, you will still get sick and suffer, you can be killed by any normal means or die because of a stupid accident.
The price for the extension of life is not being able to reborn nor have children.
- !Go for it! I like myself and want to be myself as long as I can!"
- "No. I'd rather not be away of the cycle because [insert something here]."
NOTE: The "method" does not involve inflicting any kind of harm or pain upon others, so, no funny experiments on your neighbor, sorry.

Anyway...I hope this help your research.
