If one day you mum and your wife is in the deep blue sea calling for help.Both of them do not know how to swim and water is their greatest enemy. Before either of them is drown to death who will you save ?

Note : They are no rescue boat, saving equipment or SOS phone for help you are just alone. And you can only save one person. After saving either one the other will die.

p.s this is not a trick question.

I guess i would have to resort to asking them a few trivia questions. The one who missed the most would end up being the weakest link and would be told "You ARE the weakest link, GOODBYE". The other one gets rescued, wa-la !!! Smile
Hope this helps...

That's a tough one. On one hand you have the woman that gave birth to you, wipe your butt, and cooked for you. On the other you have the woman you chose to be with for the rest of your life, who cooks for you, and who's butt you kiss. Hmmmmmm, I'd have tosay it depends on how whipped you are. If you are a man that doesn't do everything that your wife tells you, then I'd guess you'd save your mom. So in this case, Justin would save his wife. Watchuu *makes whipping motion*

That is tough....

You save the women who gave you life or you save the women who can produce more life. I love my Mom so much, and I agree with thekernel. I think we shouldn't post this kind of stuff. It is too depressing to think about.

I refuse to believe in the "no win" scenario. Something I learned from Captain Kirk! Smile Questions like this constrain your thinking and condition you to fail, when you should be preparing to think laterally. This IS a trick question, because how else could all these conditions miraculously occur at the same time? Don't let impossible hypothetical situations cloud your thinking. You will NEVER have to make a judgement call like this without there being a third option (or more).

Since this scenario is highly unlikely, don't worry about it. (Okay, so I'm a pragmatist)

I can already come up with a 3rd option and that is what I would do.
Swim to shore and leave them both to drown.

Maybe we have to resort to the Corbomite (sp?) manuever?

If both of them never bothered to learn how to swim, then let 'em go to davie jones locker!

Just to be fair I would let them both drown and to save money, have a double funeral.

Well, let's face it, your mum's probably old and didn't have much life left any way!

Yeah, your wife might turn out to be a temporary attachment but at least in the divorce courts you could remind her that you saved her life.








Just kidding, of course. I'd make sure neither of them were out at sea without life jackets if they couldn't swim.

I have no husband and I would probably save my dad over my mom, just because he's a great deal nicer.

And if it was Val Valentino, I'd save him because I love him more and he's younger than both my parents!
