Steve thinks that 90% of people would kill someone...and there's a new study that proves it! In the study, 147 people were tested in a virtual scenario in which they have to choose to let a train to hit and kill 5 people or to change the direction of the train and kill 1 person. 133 out of the 147 chose to have the train hit only one person.
Steve said he would usually "kill" the 1 save the 5. But his thought is...who's hotter, the 5 or the 1? SAVE THE HOT PEOPLE! Slacker's saying you need to go to another level in your brain. It's not just do you have 1 person die rather than 5 people (which is kind of a no-brainer), but destiny's original route was to kill 5 people. If you choose to change the direction of the train, you're changing someone's fate. Even with all of this, Slacker thinks that he would pull the switch. Steve wants to bring a whole other level to the scenario though. He's trying to evaluate everything! What if the 1 person is your mom? What if the 1 person has the cure for cancer? What would you do then?
I don't think I'd be able to stand killing someone. Even if it's to save 5 people, I'd have to think about what that person had planned to do with their life for forever. Then again, it's 5 people. I'd probably either pull the switch or end up thinking about it too hard for too long and then it would be too late!
