Some Things To Think About
"A runaway trolley car is hurtling down a track. In its path are five people who will definitely be killed unless you, a bystander, flip a switch which will divert it on to another track, where it will kill one person. Should you flip the switch?"
What Would You Do?
I admit. I would flip the switch. But the other dilemmas presented are a bit more complex. Would I blow up the fat man? Er... I guess I would. But I would not push him in front of the trolley car. I guess there's a lesson in all this. Don't be a fat person, and stay the hell away from trolleys.
Regarding Bush's whole "Don't sing the anthem in Spanish" thing...
Say it with me... Hippo Crite

Given the state of my apartment, I need to get myself one of these.
