Default What would you do?

Here is a question someone asked on another forum.

ONE-QUESTION TEST

This test only has one question, but it's a very important one. By giving an honest answer, you will discover where you stand morally.

The test features an unlikely, completely fictional situation in which you will have to make a decision. Remember that your answer needs to be honest, yet spontaneous.

Please scroll down slowly and give due consideration to each line.

THE SITUATION:

You are in Florida; Miamin to be sepcific. Ther is chaos all around caused by a hurricane with severe flooding..

This is a flood of biblical proportions. You are photojournalist working for a major news magazine, and you're caught in the middle of this epic disaster. The situation is nearly hopeless.

You're trying to shoot career-making photos. There are houses and people swirling around you, some disappearing under the water. Nature is unleashing all of its destructive fury.

THE TEST:

Suddenly you see a woman in the water. She is fighting for her life, trying not to be taken down with the debris. You move closer. Somehow the woman looks familiar. You suddenly realize who it is. It's Hillary Clinton! At the same time you notice that the raging waters are about to take her under forever.

You have two options: You can save the life of Hillary Clinton or you can shoot a dramatic Pulitzer Prize winning photo, documenting the death of one of the world's most powerful women (in her mind, at least).

THE QUESTION:

Here's the question, and please give an honest answer.......

Would you select high contrast color film, or would you go with the classic simplicity of black and white?

Hell with film, somebody might mess it up in processing.

I'd sit down and draw me a picture like in them big court trials where they don't allow cameras!

"Dang it Hillary, be still for just a minute, wouldja?"

I'd take the picture and save the lady........win the Pulitzer Prize, make tons of money, then I'd get visa, some sort of f#@ked up job doing nothing with the government, buy a nice place out in the country and live happily ever after!

my conscience wouldnt allow me to let her drown, so I'd pull her soggy a$$ out, then take some closeups in color and like the previous poster said do the rest in post-processing. whatever made her look the worst. just not much of a Hillary fan

BTW it's politically correct name is now "Billary". It's a third sex that will be brought in front of the house and senate for rcognition if it's elected.
