Posted:I would get my Dad to carry the guy who invented the cure for cancer out with him and then put my Mum on my back and carry her out...(she is really sick and wouldn't be able to make it out herself) Its all about thinking outside of the square for me...That way everyone is saved but we have used the same amount of time...(in a perfect world)

Posted:well, id have to consider all the options...

1st-my dad is very rich (cough,inheritance,cough)and has screwed a lot of people over so hes got sometin bad comin to him ANYWAYS....
2nd-my moms family has breast cancer in its genes, so more than likely my mom will have it when she gets older, i love my mom so id want her to live and get a cure in some way if she got cancer......
3rd-the guy with the cure for cancer is the only person who can cure my mom if she ever gets breast cancer.......

so my conclusion is....
wait a minute, what were we talkin about again?

and failing that, a wet towel should smother it...

ok, seriously tho. I'm gonna say, let them get themselves out. Both my parents can walk, i'm assuming the guy who cured cancer can too, if not, we'll help him....

Posted:Has anyone called the fire brigade yet? I know pnk poi said she would. But has anyone actually done it?

Only I can't help noticing this big burning building raging away there and people running in and out with assorted parents n things. But shouldn't we be doing something about putting it out? Or at least preventing the surrounding buildings from catching fire too . . .

Just a thought.

Posted:quote: you only had time to save two, which two would it be? I'm sure they are all intelligent adults who can help themselves get out anyway. Just coz you only have time to save two of them, doesn't mean that don't have time to save themselves...

(Takes off his modeator cap) And could anyway who wants either of their parents dead just keep it to themselves, I lost my father when i was 14, and you guys don't know how lucky you are to still have them. At least you have a chance of making up with them while they are stil alive...

Anyway, enough sentimental bring down everyone vibes, (Puts his moderators cap back on and goes looking for something to moderate)

Posted:cant fault you dude, wise choice.

i'd take my parents, family first and all that.
but if either of them were suffering with cancer at the time, then i'd bribe the medical guy into curing them before they both die, so they can die happily, but then not save him, and take my parents away instead. devious plan.

Posted:Well, if he's cured cancer and published and the cure is in use, then he's not much use anymore, is he?

I mean, he's an oncology specialist. Spent his whole life studying a disease that doesn't exist/is cured. So he's pretty useless, huh?

Yeah, I'm ruthless.
