Hypothetical 3 (the secret of the ooze)

okay the last one kind of bored me. apparently most people have hangups about killing a horse, simply because its killing a horse. I agree with what somebody said, had it been a different animal (IE one not domesticated or adored) the question may have been answered differently, but then the question would have been redundant.

The simple truth is that by killing a horse you would be setting free thousands of good people, held by their governments for things like practicing Christianity, protesting womens rights, not paying taxes, protesting the government, and other things that you and I take for granted. Certainly there would be a few people imprisoned that deserve to be there, but how is it justifiable to keep thousands of innocents in detention to keep a few guilty parties off the streets. Guilty people get away scott free in our legal system every day, whether it be for simple speeding tickets or multiple murder counts.

But you may say "well NTS you chose you wouldn't kill the horse either" but i am not killing it because i dont care about these imprisoned people. they have never made an impression on my life and never will. I opted not to do it simply for selfish reasons, not because i could care a rats ass about a Clydesdale.

heres number three.

Quote:
Let us assume there are two boxes on a table. In one box, there is a relatively normal turtle; in the other, Adolf Hitler's skull. You have to select one of these items for your home. If you select the turtle, you can't give it away and you have to keep it alive for two years; if either of these parameters are not met you will be fined $999 by the state. If you select Hitler's skull, you are required to display it in a semi prominent location in your living room for the same amount of time, although you will be paid a stipend of $120/month for doing so. Display the skull must be apolitical. Which option do you select?
For those that dont know, to be apolitical is to be without any political agenda. Hitler has widely been characterized as one of the worst characters in history, the most evil person... out of trillions of persons that have lived, he is definatly in the top ten, if not five. You cannot think Nazism on this one, you cannot think axis of evil. you simply must understand that it is your objective to have the skull of one of the most evil persons ever to walk the earth displayed for all of your friends, families, acquaintances, whatever, to see.

oh and you can name the turtle whatever you want. i'd say it costs no less than 20 dollars a month to feed and house a turtle. and they certainly dont require much of your time. maximum lifespan of a painted turtle in captivation? 20 years. Mean lifespan of a turtle in captivation, 3 years.


Now go.

Thats an easy one. Hitler's skull, that way I could spit on the SOB every time I walked past it. That would be priceless. Who cares what people think. Those who know me know me, and those who don't.....well lets just say they think I am tad bit off anyway.

Dude if you had hitler's skull, you could sell that puppy for tons and tons and tons of money after your little stint with it. Not to mention the historical value it represents. I take the skull and I wouldn't do a thing to it like spit or piss on it, it's worth too much money. F*** the turtle, they suck unless they are the teenage mutant ninja variety.

yes, but your not thinking entirely too much on how displaying the skull of a madman would impact your social life.

So you are going to display something in your house that you hate, and other people are going to know this, and you are not thinking this may make you seem a little off? my point is you are making a mockery out of Hitler, and yourself. Plus by spitting on the skull i think that inherently you'd be showing political distaste and be breaking the rules.



Personally i believe the 1440 dollars a year has a LOT to do with peoples decisions on this one.

Think people, think. its not a race to the "post reply" button its an examination of your intellectual capability.

I'd take the skull, you get paid to keep it, and then you can sell that chit afterwards for millions of dollars. Not to mention: Man, what a conversation piece! Just because you're displaying it doesn't mean you agree with his actions. Otherwise, museums wouldn't show all sorts of terrible things that they have. It's an artifact that has huge historical signifigance.

A turtle is just a boring turtle, and it would cost you money. F that.

again, money comes into play. You guys do know who hitler was, right? youre willing to sacrifice your moral integrity for money is all i have heard from the last two posts.

I choose the skull also but. Im not getting payed monthly to raise the turtle and I get fined if it dies early. on the other hand, its a pet not much a month to feed or water, dont have to deal with the political B.S. that might come with displaying the skull. Some might view it in a bad way for displaying the skull. Wrong impressions could lead to worse things and even harm. so It might be easier, to just raise the turtle for 2 yrs.

and by the way, the idea of profiting off Hitlers skull will surely send you to hell.

This one is easy - the turtle.

$120/month isn't worth what having that skull in my home would make me feel inside. I'd sooner wh0re myself out on a street corner than take financial gain for displaying that item.

Besides, I like turtles, so keeping one as a pet for a couple years isn't a problem for me at all.

Do I get to keep it when I am done? Sweet, then it would go to the Holocaust museum with a suggestion to put it on display in a dunking booth. Two benefits to the idea

#1. It would make money.

#2. Think about how bad it would piss off the white power idiots. Their idol being dunked over and over mainly by a bunch of Jews. I would snicker about that for the rest of my life, and if I bought karma it should be good for a bunch of points!

it doesnt say anywhere that you cant keep the skull after you are done, but it also only states that the skull is meant to be viewed in your home. not to be in your possession at any time.

I took a trip one time when i was stationed in Germany, and it really opened my eyes on how innocent people suffered. To judge a person the way hitler did, by the way people look or there religious background. It represents everything that is wrong in this world. One thing i learned and i appresiate about being in the Army we did care what, one's religion was, color are race.
Hey we was all army and we where all green through and through. Thats one of the things people dont realize what the Military in general represents. yeah back in the early days might been lil F'd up bot now days We are all brother in arms. We look to that person to or left or right when we are stuck in the foxhole in 130 degree weather to have somethin like hitler's skull in my house would go against every moral fiber in my body. So there is my extended true answer.

I dont care about what people think when they come to my house. If you come to my house then you are a friend of mine and you probably have the same mind set I do. I dont invite peole to my house theat would get freaked out by some guys skull in my house. If that is you, then you are not invited to my house!

This is not a monetary thing, this is a once in a life time chance. I have a special hatred for Hitler (and a small amount of respect but won't go into that). You weigh the cost, but the opportunity is just to good to pass up. And I am deathly serious about the dunking booth, it may have come off as flippant but the humiliation would be ideal.

I choose the skull and they can keep the money. I'm too busy and out way too much to worry about keeping a turtle alive. Besides it's a skull nothing more. It doesn't have a big swastica on the forhead it's a simple skull no sign or anything you could say it was Einsteins or something
