Okay guys and gals, here’s a little challenge I’d like to give to all of you. It’s quite simple and free and I hope you’ll join in. All you have to do is to think twice even more if want, before posting your answers in the comment thread below.
First off, a little intro, this is an activity we did last Tuesday in Ecology class in which we were divided into ten small groups, and were given a scenario/problem to ponder and discuss about. It is related to the environment, the survival of the human race and the restoration of planet Earth, hence this post’s title. We were then given 10 choices to choose our answer from and of course to come up with reasons to justify and defend our answer. The same thing will happen here. This is an open-ended and opinion based problem so all of your answers would be right and it will all boil down to how you would justify your answer. All set?
Alright here is the scenario:
The Earth is devasted by a nuclear holocaust that resulted in a third world war between the powerful nuclear-armed nations of the world. (ex. N. Korea successfully hitting the US with a nuke missile, the US answering back with its own hail storm of nuke missiles, but one misses and hits China, then another misses and hits Russia, and the whole thing just got uglier and uglier)
Now there are only 10 people left as survivors and the only chance for them to survive longer and to contribute to the rebuilding human civilization and restoring mother earth is to take refuge inside an underground tunnel complex, until the conditions on the Earth’s surface clear down and become suitable for living again, say in the next 50 years or so.
But there’s one little catch, the tunnel only has enough supplies and resources for 9 people. But you have 10 survivors, so sadly and unfortunately, one person must be eliminated from the group so that the rest could live on.
You, my dear readers and visitors have the lone power to make the decision of choosing who will be left out of the tunnel and perish. Below are the list of the 10 persons you have to choose from:
34 yr-old Priest
65 yr-old old man
27 yr-old pregnant woman
12 yr-old female student
22 yr-old female artist (painter/musician)
32 yr-old male scientist
34 yr-old athlete
37 yr-old sumo wrestler
18 yr-old ballet dancer
60 yr-old carpenter
Again, the tunnel can only accomodate 9 people so you have to eliminate one so that the rest can live on to restore Mother earth to ther glory. Who will you eliminate?
Again, no answers could be wrong, it’s your opinion and you just have to give some justifications for you defence. Please leave your answers in the comment thread below.
I will share my own answer this coming Sunday so as not to pre-empt things and make it a bit exciting. Plus, I may even have a reward for the reader who will come up with the most reasonable justification to their answer.
Okay, let the restoration of mother earth begin! 🙂
