    If you knew every death that would happen of non-natural causes, would you attempt to save those people?
    How many peoples lives would you have to save to sacrifice yours?
    If by killing yourself all your enemies would die, would you?

    1. Only if they deserve to be saved. Innocent, virtuous people are what I call deserving; murderers and rapists are not.

    2. wat

    3. No. All my enemies dying is not worth me cutting myself off from life.

    1) No.
    2) No.
    3) No.

    To summarise: humanity consists of barely sentient lumps of meat who exist only to provide a backdrop against which my natural brilliance shines brighter.

    1. It depends what kind of people they are.
    2. I would sacrifice myself if it meant one innocent virtuous person would be saved.
    3. No, my enemies don't deserve death.

    1) No. If I made decisions between deciding who was worthy to save I would go insane, and also I would have no right. Besides, the moement I save someone from Death, Death would come looking FOR ME. I saw in a movie or three.

    2) Probably none. I would risk my life for others, but in a guaranteed 'you're gonna die for these people' I'd probably not save them. But you know. You never know.

    3) Hell no. If I actually wanted to kill these people I would hunt them all down and kill them in their sleep. Then, they would all be dead and I would be in Crime school (jail). Win for everyone!

    1. Was a medic- been there, done that.

    2. That is not a valid question. it is self serving. if i save a million or just one, deciding on a number is like trying to judge what will give one the most glory or lasting fame.
    saving just one should be a no-brainer without hesitation.

    3. What if, by saving myself from suicide, I give my enemies the gift of life and redemption/reconciliation? wouldn' that accomplish more?

    Wasn't this towards the end of Monty Python's Search for the Holy Grail? You know the old guy by the bridge..."you must answer me these questions three!"

    1) Yes, assuming you weren't one of them.

    2) 28 billion

    3) No, that's stupid and dumb.
