Blue.

I would gladly give up my life to ensure the safety of any other person, and it is very disheartening to see so many bloodthirsty people here. If you ever feel the need to kill someone, please find me first before anyone else.

Blue without a second thought. If it blows up in my face I think I would rather not live in a hopeless world where people will thoughtlessly murder others when a simple alternative was given for both of you to live.

I'd press them both at the same time causing a spatial distortion in the time continuum sending us back to the prehistoric age just before a meteor hits killing everything on the planet.

That question reminds me of a story I read. I forgot the name, but it was about a married woman who was given a red button by a stranger. The man tells her that if she presses the button, she would get $1,000,000 dollars. However, a random stranger will die if she pressed the button. In the end she pressed the button, and her husband "fell" onto the subway tracks and got hit by a train.


It was called "Button, Button", IIRC. The plot also got turned into a Twilight Zone episode, playing out in much the same way.

I would mash the "kill" button until I was the last person left alive

Mostly everybody on here is going to say red button and that they wouldn't even hesitate, even those who say blue would probably pick red if the situation actually happened, they are all strangers to me therefore I can tell that just about every stranger in a life or death situation would hit that red button to kill me.

So my answer: I would press that red button. I would press that motherfucker faster than any other person to ensure my survival. Does that make me a bad person? probably, but I wouldn't say so if everybody is going to choose the same option... That just means we're all bad people, terrible terrible people. But fuck it I mean yolo right? no? ok then..

Ok so, Imagine you are kidnapped and strapped to a chair with only one arm free within reach of two buttons.
You were given only two choices:
1. Press a red button that will kill a random person (via poison injection by the kidnappers smiling doc ) from any possible country of whom you have never met, and you will be freed of any possible harm.
or
2. Press a blue button which will disable the red button(the blue button cannot be pressed until 5 minutes upon the buttons activation which will be activated at the same time)

The random person who would be on the receiving end of your choice is in the same situation as you are, and hold your fate in their hand because You! are on the receiving end of their buttons. If you both press the blue button, you both will go free. Which would you choose???Red or Blue? only 5 minutes tic-tok


Hehe someone just got done watching The Dark Knight.

I'd hope I would push the blue button. Honestly though, I don't think anyone knows what they would do for sure unless they were in the situation. I just see it as this: if I have to live a stained life because I had to sacrifice someone else I don't think I'd like that life. Again, who knows for sure though right?


I usually put my choice in my post first, but this time I want to see the CR members answer without my possible influence.

Knowing the extremely kind hearted person I am, I'd probably go with blue. I know it could be anybody, like a serial killer, or a rapist, etc., but I'm not risking it if it's a small child who hasn't been able to live his/her life to the fullest. If I let someone die, pretty much kill them myself in this situation, the guilt would eat me alive until I die. I know it isn't completely my fault, but that's a human life. And I tend to blame myself more than I do others.

Blue without any hesitation.
I am not afraid to die, and killing strangers is not good for karma. Actually, I think most major religions agree about that. So I can only presume that whoever chose red...likely doesn't believe in afterlife.

I'd like to point out to all the people who want to press the red button that if it wasn't for the people who want to press the red button it would be perfectly safe to just press the blue button. It's not like the "Dark Knight" situation in which after some time they would all die and there's the "let's save at least our lives" element. If anyone was perfectly - hell, even just marginally - rational, blue button would be the logical solution.

I'll add that if I was the sadist setting up the game, I'd rig the chair so that pressing the red button kills the one who presses it, not the other guy. And I'd call the game "Operation Darwin award".
