I would like to think I would pick blue, but in the situation surviving would be the aim and I think I'd pick the red button.

Lol I see some very cute answers as to how one could go around the only 2 choices given to you.
If your were actually in this situation with a doctor next to you with a needle full of poison...would you really choose
not to press any button at all? In such a case it is logical to assume that a refusal to play will end up as a involitary-volitary(if ther is such a thing)death.


I'm enjoying this hypothetical. In this scenario I would ask the doctor to unstrap me from the chair and he would kindly help me leave the room. I wouldn't touch the needle full of poison and I would advise the doctor to be careful before I leave because there is a needle full of poison next to him.

You stated nothing about the doctor having any malicious intent so I've decided that he was there to help me. I'm not sure why you would put a poison needle next to me and the docotor. That's just dangerous.


nice , but I must add....you could do a move like Neo from the matrix with a backflip kick ( that not only sends the doc flying through to the next planet), while consuming the poison and turning it into water before it hit any viable organs. You can also fly to the location of the other guy or gal who is waiting in the other county and beat up the doc there and set free the other person. One can think up many possibility's...the imagination is full and overflowing with idea's. I believe that in this scenario....the part where you asked the doctor to let you go was just you fainting and dreaming after he informed you about the TWO choices...now it is time to awake from your dream and press one or the other because now you only have 1 minute left . I didn't need to directly say that there was malicious intent....it is implied in the title of the post "kill or be killed", the description of the post and in the explanation of the situation(If this were a riddle I would agree with you, but there is no hidden possibility)...So what will you choose Red or Blue?

Murderer

me i'd hit the blue. Not because of the guilt afterwards but because i felt like it. and 2 because i'd be hoping that they hit the Red button on me . So i could leave earth and end up in Anime land......because that's where Crunchyroll people go when they die

you press neither button and deal with whatever consequence it may be, even if it means your death. you shouldnt accept negotiations from anybody who puts you in that situation. if someone dies, its on the killers hands. someone who puts you in that situation is likely to kill you anyways even if you push the red button.

It's still a hypothetical scenario. I conjure a bad-ass unicorn and bust through the door on an electric rainbow. Unicorn's are Gangsta

Press the blue button.


I don't see the point of existence... of life or the universe. What is everything here for?

I'm a cynic. As such my faith in humanity is a bit less than maybe it should be. That being said, though, I would hope that my conscience would kick in and pick blue. However, lest I sound like a namby-pamby goody two-shoes I doubt anyone can predict how they will react to the various fight-or-flight, adrenaline and other natural instincts that would kick in at that time. In other words, my answer could could very well change if put on the spot and I think most of us would be the same.

P.S. totally onboard with haunting the crap out of the evil sonofagun if things went south.
