    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.


    *** THE SITUATION: ***

    You are in London. There is chaos all around you caused by a hurricane with severe flooding. This is a flood of biblical proportions.

    You are a photo-journalist 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 into the water. Nature is unleashing all of its destructive fury.


    *** THE TEST: ***

    Suddenly, you see a man 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 realize who it is....

    It's the Muslim Cleric, Abu Hamza, the one-eyed, hook handed bastard who hates non-Muslims and wants the UK to become an Islamic state!!

    You notice that the raging waters are about to take him under forever.

    You have two options:

    You can save the life of Abu

    Or

    You can shoot a dramatic Pulitzer Prize winning photo, documenting the death of one of the country's most despised, evil and powerful men!


    *** NOW 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?

    I agree. Black and white conveys the starkness of reality far better than the softening that color tends to bring.

    I have the most expensive digital DSL camera in the world, I would do both, and record a short film to upload to YouTube.

    I'd pull him out of the water..let him know it was an atheist western man that saved his life..and then plunk his sorry ass back in prison. Anybody ever eaten English food? The stuff the serve to tourists is terrible. I can't imagine what they serve to prisoners. :lol:

    I'd rescue his ass and send him a bill for the replacement of my camera, should I have to sacrifice it.

    Life Experience does influence change. No One can say for certainty, how the encounter would chang him. Never forget that Ropey.
