Posted:Hey some of you probably have seen this, but I thought it was a pretty cool moral dilemma, see how you go..

You are driving along in your car on a wild, stormy night. You pass by a bus stop, and you see three people waiting for the bus:

1. An old lady who looks as if she is about to die.
2. An old friend who once saved your life.
3. The perfect man (or) woman you have been dreaming about.

There can only be one passenger in your car and you can't return to the bus stop once you have left it.

Which one would you choose to offer a ride?

This is a moral/ethical dilemma that was once actually used as part of a job selection process.

The candidate who was hired (out of 200 applicants) had no trouble coming up with their answer.

WHAT DID THEY SAY?

I will post the “correct” answer later….

Happy thinking

Kate

Posted:Ok here the second one, a friend of mine just told me this one here at work, not a moral dilemma, just a teaser question.

A woman is attending a family funeral, and she spies a distant cousin and falls madly in love with him.

Three months later she is attending her sister’s funeral.

Question: Why did she kill her sister?

Posted:her sister died because there is a history of intermarrying, rumpy-pumpy cousins in her family; her parents are cousins and unfortunately her sister died of genetic complications as a result. Either that or she works in a funeral home with Rachel Griffiths.

iono.

Posted:When Katinca says quote: distant cousin She actually means "a cousin who is standing in the distance". Unfortunately the girl's eyesight is not brilliant and it is not till later she realises that she has been fantasising about her own sister. Unable to live with the guilt & shame, she goes mad and kills her sister with a plastic spatula...

Well done Stone, can you help me with this one now?!!!

Posted:She killed her sister as she was the woman running the recruitment section at some high falutin' corporate company in town, for administering personality tests in this day and age

She then ran off with her sisters husband, knowing that distant cousins who got married would never pass any corporate personality test administered by anyone even slightly resembling her sister, so they became drop outs and visited Malcolms poi party on the side of the road, just near a pretty packed bus stop

I think they have plans to hijack a plane and end up on some poi island in the south pacific

Posted:As much as I liked all of your answers, the answer was she killed her sister so she could see the distant cousin again. And she knew that most serial killers don't get caught...

Posted:This is a most unusual paragraph. How quickly can you find out what is so unusual about it? It looks so ordinary you’d think nothing was wrong with it - and in fact, nothing is wrong with it. It is unusual though. Why? Study it, think about it, and you may find out. Try to do it without coaching. If you work at it for a bit it will dawn on you. So jump to it and try your skill at figuring it out. Good luck - don’t blow your cool! What is strange about that paragraph?

Gonna have to be a little bit careful with your formatting, cos there is an 'e' in strange, & if you don't separate that sentence from the paragraph

I am such smartarse... sorry...

Posted:I'd drive really close to the curb and spray them all with water!

........ *Dibs feels she shouldn't have said that*

erm, I'd probably stop to talk to the person who once saved my life and invite them to sit in the car for a chat; obviously I'd ask the old lady in too......... and then the beautiful man would be a bonus - and he'd blatantly fall in love with me because of my generosity and caring nature towards the old lady. Yeah, that'd be me.


Can miles truly separate us from friends? If we want to be with someone we love aren't we already there? If there is someone willing to show, and there is someone willing to see; magic happens. This is whem humans are alive. This is when the wingless fly.
