Explain what you would do in each situation and reason.(format stolen from In a Quandary XD)
Situation 1: You and 499 other passengers are aboard a boat. There is a bomb on the boat. There is a second boat with a bomb on it. This boat has 500 prisoners on it. All of the prisoners are there for major crimes (rape, murder, etc.). On each boat is a detonation switch for the bomb on the other boat. You have 2 hours, and if one of the switches are not activated before then, both bombs explode. If anyone attempts to leave the boat, both bombs explode. Remember, the same debate is going on in the other boat and the prisoners could blow up your boat at any second. This is all the information the Joker has given you (so as far as you know, the switches may detonate by themselves).
Situation 2: Same as 1 except communication is jammed and you only have 5 minutes to decide. No chance of rescue.
Situation 3: Same as situation 2 except the people on the boat were ex-prisoners who had served their time and had since become productive members of society
Situation 4: Same as situation 2, but there are 800 prisoners and only 500 non-prisoners.
Situation 5: Same as situation 2 except you're one of the prisoners.
some of your options:
-wait for possible rescue
-press the button (remember you're trusting the joker to keep his word)
-destroy the button
