    Suppose that you and eight other people about your age are wandering a cave.

    Next imagine that as someone is crawling out, there is a cave-in.

    To make matters worse water is seeping into the cave and if you don't get out you and the other six will die.

    Each of you has a small stick of dynamite.

    Your options are as such
    A) blow your way out of the cave with the dynamite and kill the other person stuck

    B) let the person live and wind up dying with the other six


    Next imagine that the person stuck was a loved one or spouse what would your answer be then?

    What dilemma?

    I just got life insurance policies for my wife and I... as far as I can see, if she's stuck... well then it's payday casa Gastel!

    If the person is stuck in the wilderness, then they are as good as dead anyway so blowing them up is no big deal.

    I would use the dynamite to blow our way through, If the other person is stuck then there is a small chance that they will live anyways, so if you love them do them a favor and make it a quick death.

    the idea is that you are between a river and a solid wall of granite

    no wilderness

    the other idea is that you have two choices

    A) kill one save seven

    B) kill seven save one

    it's a moral choice
    let's just say no other options appear to you so you only have those choices, ok

    I blow them all up and feast on their remains while living in the dark, dank cave. Someday I hope to turn into Gollum.

    not nessesarily

    there might be people on the other side trying to dig you out
    at the same time there might not

    options are as said above
    die with the other six and save one
    OR
    kill the other one and save six

    if you chose to die then the other guy will live
