    Train Problem


    There is a runaway trolley barreling down the railway tracks. Ahead, on the tracks, there are five people tied up and unable to move. The trolley is headed straight for them. You are standing some distance off in the train yard, next to a lever. If you pull this lever, the trolley will switch to a different set of tracks. However, you notice that there is one person on the side track. You have two options: Do nothing, and the trolley kills the five people on the main track. Pull the lever, diverting the trolley onto the side track where it will kill one person.

    What do you do?

    I think I have seen this problem before, but I think the one person on the top was mentioned as someone close to you (friend/family) and the bottom 5 were strangers. I can't recall correctly what was being evaluated though...


    (The video made me laugh. lol At first, I was all like "Awww, he's so sweet, he wants to save them all". I lost it when I realized how wrong I was.)

    Not really the track is a loop so technically he is just ending them all quicker instead of having one left waiting and knowing its going to die.
