    This test only has one question, but it's a very important one. By
    giving an honest answer, you will discover where you stand morally.

    The test features an unlikely, completely fictional situation in
    which you will have to make a decision.

    Remember that your answer needs to be honest, yet spontaneous.
    Please scroll down slowly and give due consideration to each line.

    You are in Florida, Miami to be specific. There is chaos all around
    you caused by a hurricane with severe flooding.

    This is a flood of biblical proportions.

    You are a photojournalist working for a major newspaper, and you're
    caught in the middle of this epic disaster. The situation is nearly
    hopeless. You're trying to shoot career-making photos.

    There are houses and people swirling around you, some disappearing
    under the water.
    Nature is unleashing all of its destructive fury. Suddenly you see a
    man floundering in the water. He is fighting for his life, trying
    not to be taken down with the debris.

    You move closer, somehow the man looks familiar. You suddenly
    realise who it is.

    It's Barack Obama!

    At the same time you notice that the raging waters are about to pull
    him under.

    You have two options--you can save the life of Obama or
    you can shoot a dramatic Pulitzer Prize winning photo, documenting
    the death of the US president.

    So here's the question, and please give an honest answer :

    Would you select high contrast colour film, or would you go with the
    classic simplicity of black and white?

    No, it is liberals who believe that. We just try to point out that "he's not the Messiah, he's a very naughty boy" (Quote: The Life of Brian, Monty Python Film)

    We are the ones who:

    1. Want to pay our own way through life and know that a good pic of the death of a POTUS will put food on the table for years.

    2. Recognize that a POTUS is replaceable.

    3. It will make liberals cry - providing much opportunity to jokes and yet more photo opportunities of liberals weeping into their lattes.

    4. If we are really lucky, some liberals will drown trying to save him.

    Liberals wouldn't drown trying to save him. They'd just expect the guy a bigger boat to do the job for them.
