Re: Human / animal Hybrids.....it's true!Jan 27th, 2005
If you can honestly say you would be seeing the next Osama Bin Laden lying on the train track instead of a 3 year old stranger that is your prerogative.
I'm not avoiding the question at all. I am refusing to answer it because I don't feel it's a valid question. It's up there with that walk in the woods thing that supposed to reveal your personality. It doesn't work.
The answer we're supposed to give is pre-determined. I'm supposed to say, "The child,of course," and act all self-righteous about it. Since the "right" answer is so obvious, the question becomes redundant because you cannot determine if the answerer is telling the truth.
The answerer themselves cannot know for sure how they would react in that situation until it actually happens. You are asking people to intellectualize an emotional, instinctive action. There are plenty of cases where people saved animals instead of children because it was the reaction their body and primitive brain dictated.
