    Subject: Test your morals

    A tricky one. What would you do?


    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 realise who it is.... It's the Muslim
    Cleric, Abu Hamza, the one-eyed, hook handed shite 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:

    Here's the question, and please give an honest answer....







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

    I'd offer him my hand and say I'm an Infidel, I just ate bacon, take my hand and I'll pull you out of the water. If he takes my hand he's safe. If he refuses his death in on his head and I take the pic if I can still get it.

    That wasn't one of the option. Color or black and white.... they were the options. I'd always go black and white - far more impactive, and atmospheric.

    The question involves chaos & flooding. An old joke with new names. I'll be on higher ground I hope, so no photo or rescue will be possible. :D

    I would never visit London if my life depended on it. :tongue:

    I wouldn't save him, as the authorities would just let him continue to preach hate and violence, and another terrorist attack he and his ilk incited would murder more people. :doubt:
