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.
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.
