      Kendall, you are a dumbfuck. I have seen you post on several of these, and your responses were all either dumb, insensitive, steriotypical, or just fucking irrational. Good day, bitch.

      Face it guys, you don't know that the cops won't get there in time. If you were to have to choose in real life, I can bet that 99% of you would probably just call the cops.

      If it was the decision between the cops not getting there in time (spoilers, my town doesn't get police quickly cause there's only one officer) or to take a horrific beating. It never said that you had to fight. It said to ensure the other's safety and to take the beating

    • 0

      I'd take the beating for this person; It never said you had to fight. It said you had to intervene and save their life, not fight. Plus, the police here don't respond quick enough.

      It says "save a life (as in, they would die) but take an EQUALLY HORRIFIC beating" so no, you'll probably die. At least if you call the police the gang members can get arrested.

      So the other guy you saved would die (it says save a LIFE), but you would somehow survive and heal? And maybe one of you will remember their faces almost as well as the trained professionals to get them arrested? It's not wrong to choose your life over someone else's, and it's probably the decision you would make if it actually happened and you knew that someone would die.

      @SomeGuyOverThere You aren't seeming to understand what they mean. You and the stranger would BOTH be beaten up. When you intervene, they would probably stop beating up the stranger. But then you would get a beating with the same amount of pain the stranger had.

      To be fair, it says "would you rather" not "what would you actually do." 76% of people would rather sacrifice their lives for someone else, even if they wouldn't be able to.

    I do apologize straight away but I do believe the police should intervene and stop sitting on their lazy ass eating doughnuts or getting in on the take or beating protestors. I think the cops should get there on time and save the day. It's their job! But still...I pick this choice even though it says they didn't get there on time

    • 17

      think about their job, how long does it take to beat someone up? couple minutes? now how are the cops supposed to get there within minutes of an action. they are not everywhere as it seems and probably the closest cop is miles away.

    I say blue just based on the wording of the red response "you SAVE A LIFE but take an EQUALLY HORRIFIC beating" if the beating was = to that of someones life who you saved than you would not just get your ass kicked it is implied you would die. If red said I prevented further beating of the stranger but got beat up in turn then I would have chosen red...but if i'm gonna die it'd have to be for a family member or friend especially since i'm walking up on a situation where I don't even know what's going on.

    That "stranger" could be the next hitler. Hell, he got saved from drowning when he was a baby
