A Moral Question

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 reading each line and give due consideration to each line.

THE SITUATION

You are in England, York 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 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 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 Gordon Brown the Prime Minister! You noticed that the raging waters are about to take him under forever. You have two options:

You can save the life of Gordon Brown or you can shoot a dramatic Pulitzer Prize-winning photo, documenting the death of one of the country’s most powerful men!

THE QUESTION

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?

  1. High contrast color to highlight and capture David’s foot on his head.

    Question for my conservative British friends – aside from MT is there any other PM you all liked?

  2. We dream about PMs dying we don’t ACTUALLY take them out with a bolt action rifle.

    uh oh

    😀

  3. Awww, poor Gordon. He’s not that bad! I can think of far worse PMs than him. (errr, mmmm, OK, can I include Africa in that?)
    I know how he could save himself from a watery grave: Have his impending death promoted and legislated as official Labour government policy. Get Harriet Harman to praise it as a very sensible policy.
    Then just wait for the inevitable policy U-turn. Bingo – saved by utter incompetence, in true New Labour style!

  4. Loved Churchill, respected Thatcher and I didn’t mind Blair though he apparently drove many of you batty.

  5. I’m going to start the a war between Europe and America.

    Daphne, there is a u in Colour.

    🙂

  6. Hate Churchill, thinks Thatcher is the Anti-Christ and will have a party when that bitch finally dies, and laughed at Blair.

  7. British Prime Ministers that I like, um…









    This really goes against my argument about me not being a Liberal, but if we are to find one that a don’t mind, we have to go back to Asquith.

    Speaking as an Irishman and as a European, do you think that Churchill’s leadership in the WW2 period was

    a) good
    b) bad
    c) something in between

    England could easily have lost that war.. Do you think it would have mattered much to Ireland and Europe as a whole if England had gone under?

  9. He’ll say some studies have shown that the Germans weren’t so bad, since they didn’t have a Guantanemo Bay.

  10. "Speaking as an Irishman and a European, do you think that Churchill’s leadership in the WW2 period was

    First of all, I’m not a European. I hate Europe.

    I’m going to be diplomatic. It was good for Britain.

  11. It’s colour with a u, from the French word we all share, Seamus

    Churchill Thatcher Blair. All awesome.

    And course the photos should be in noir et blanc

  12. Oops, got carried away with the Italic bit. My contribution is :-

    First of all, I’m not a European. I hate Europe.

    I’m going to be diplomatic. It was good for Britain.

  13. Seamus -it was good for you too, if not for the Brits you’d be annoying people in German.

  14. At least the German camps were a secret. Everyone knows about Gitmo. And the German camps created lots of heat to warm up people during the winter.

    [Yes people, I am not above Holocaust jokes!]

  15. Seamus

    Let me enlighten you, grasshopper. You are a European. That has nothing to do with the EU. Europe was Europe before the EU and will be Europe when the EU has gone bye bye.

    Please answer the question.

  16. "Seamus -it was good for you too, if not for the Brits you’d be annoying people in German."

    I hate the English language though.

  17. Calling an Irish person European is like calling a Canadian person American.

    Liable to get you punched.

  18. What other languages do you speak?

    I am usually so unimpressed by Irish nationalists whose Irish vocabulary begins and ends in "pug mahone" though they say the subject of the language is so terribly important to them.

  19. Canadians are wannabee Americans, but without the personality, except for the Quebeckers who are fake Frenchmen.

  20. Yes, so are Mexicans and other Latin Americans. Do we have to teach you everything?

  21. Yes, but I am as much a European as I am an Earthean. I have no love for any part of Europe outside the lovely wee Emerald Isle.

  22. Seamus is just a wee slip of a lad. Some of his jokes are falling flat but he’s learning. Let’s make allowances for the bum fluff boy.

  23. Thank you for the lovely sentiments, Phantom.

    Colm, I have not had Bum Fluff for years know. I’m a big boy [ladies, in more ways than one]. You’re just old.

  24. Glad to see Alison grasped tá tu. It isn’t as most people think, a Russian band with some very attractive lesbians in it.

    Also, Alison, the Irish for Nutter is "Mire". So it would be "Séamus, tá tú Mire".

  25. Colm

    I am shocked that you imply I have used that software. Would never use it, nor freetranslation.com either. Never.

    Seamus

    The man who said this is not someone you should hate:

    "My rule of life prescribed as an absolutely sacred rite smoking cigars and also the drinking of alcohol before, after and if need be during all meals and in the intervals between them." (which I believe that he once confided to the king of Saudi Arabia)

  26. Seamus,

    "thinks Thatcher is the Anti-Christ "

    Not another one. There have been more sightings of the anti-christ than elvis lately.

    Paging Mr Flanagan.

  27. I am imagining that the quote is from aul Winnie.

    My favorite is "Madam, I may be drunk, but in the morning I will be sober. You on the other hand, will still be ugly."

    Or

    "Mr Churchill, If you were my Husband, I would feed you poison."

    "Madam, if you were my wife, I would happily drink it."

  28. And what, pray, (or rationalise, if you are an atheist), is the diabhal? Now I’m interested.

  29. Maggie and her Thatch are both bastards. Anti Christ is maybe a bit harsh. Fine I’ll go with the Diabhal in flesh.

  30. pug mahone"

    Is it not Poag Mahon?

    LOL good post, I think I’d go for the colour.

  31. Colour or b/w *FILM*?? What is this, the 70’s? Don’t you mean "switch the digital CMOS sensor to b/w mode, turn on auto-focus and anti-shake correction, set ISO and aperture to auto mode, and email the .tiff images by wireless satellite connection direct to the sub-editor for photoshopping"?

  32. Tom

    Naah, all that techno stuff is so last year. Now you just click your I phone and email it to your Myspace site.

  33. It’s all too much for me. I still struggle with cashpoint machines…..A blackberry is something you put in a pie, and as for bluetooth, I’d go and see the dentist if I got it.
