I thought we should have a thread in which we can debate the hypothetical. It'll be interesting to see what kind of answers you bastards have. I have 5 questions which I thought were particularly thought-provoking;

1) If a new medicine were developed that would cure arthritis but cause a fatal reaction in 1% of those who took it, would you want it to be released to the public?

2) You discover that your wonderful one-year-old child is, because of a mix-up at the hospital, not yours. What would you do? Would you want to exchange the child to try to correct the "mistake"?

3) If you knew of a way to use your estate, following your death, to greatly benefit all of humanity, would you do it and leave only a minimal amount (10%) to your family?

4) If the person you were engaged to marry had an accident and became a paraplegic, would you go through with the marriage or back out of it?

5) If you could have free, unlimited service for five years from an extremely good cook, chauffeur, or masseuse, which would you choose?

1.  Yes, but I would make the red tape really obnoxious to get through.  1% would be a huge fatality risk for a modern medicine, so they better fully understand the benefits of other options first.

2.  Probably so, but that's by far the most difficult question of the five.  Best case scenario:  my actual child ended up being put up for adoption and I'd keep both.

3. Yes, without any hesitation.   If 90% is enough to make that big of a difference, 10% is certainly enough to cover all my expenses and at least help them a little.

4.  Yes I would still marry her and without much concern.   If you changed the question to a quadriplegic that would be tougher, but likely  still yes.

5.  Cook.

1. Yes. It would benefit far, far more people than it would hurt. Reactions to treatments, sadly, come with the territory of medical innovation. You have to think big picture.
2. This question is kinda vague...but yes. I would want my own child. But it also depends on the other set of parents involved.
3. Benefit humanity, yes. Only 10% to my family, no. I want my children's children to be taken care of. I guess it depends on how much is the 10% we are talking about.
4. Absolutely.
5. A good cook! I like driving myself and I don't think daily massages/physical treatment is as important as eating well/healthy. Plus I'm lazy when it comes to cooking.

1.) yeah because no one is making you take it...as long as people know the risk it's up to them

2.) yes, I want my own child

3.) yes

4.) yes, because when I commit to someone then I stick with them. I think a lot of the worlds problems stem from the fact that less and less people understand what loyalty is

5.) masseuse and it's not even close
all your bases are belong to us

1) Yes there are already medicine and surgery that have that much of a chance but benefit others. I just heard about a child on life support after getting tonsils removed the other day.
2) Kind of vague if it were a baby I would but a child I had already raised probably not but it would be up to the other parents also.
3) Yes I plan to leave my children all I have but I've also raised them to make their own way support themselves. Waiting on that rich uncle to die isn't a very good financial plan.
4) Yes if I had already committed to marriage it would mean I was in love and love is blind.
5) A driver.. I hate my 40 something mile trip to work daily.

1. Yes; We've done a lot more with worse odds
2. Yes; I didn't even like my kids until they were 4 or 5, so swapping one out after a year is no biggie.
3. No; The world will only become dependent if I keep saving it all the time.
4. Depends on if I was in it for the money or if it was really love.
5. I'll go with the cook for $500, Alex.
