Ethics Test Question

This test only has one question, but it's a very important one. By giving an
honest answer, you will discover where you stand morally. The test features
an unlikely, completely fictional situation in which you will have to make
a decision. Remember that your answer needs to be honest, yet spontaneous.

Please scroll down slowly and give due consideration to each line.

You are in Florida, Miami to be specific. There is chaos all around you,
caused by a hurricane, with severe flooding. This is a flood of biblical
proportions. You are a photo journalist working for a major newspaper, and
you're caught in the middle of this epic disaster. The situation is nearly
hopeless.

You're trying to shoot career-making photos. There are houses and people
swirling around you, some disappearing under the water. Nature is unleashing
all of its destructive fury. Suddenly you see a woman in the water. She is
fighting for her life, trying not to be taken down with the debris. You move
closer.. Somehow the woman looks familiar. You suddenly realize who it is.
It's Hillary Clinton! At the same time you notice that the raging waters
are about to take her under forever.

You have two options--you can save the life of Hillary Clinton, or
you can shoot a dramatic Pulitzer Prize winning photo,documenting the death
of one of the world's most powerful women.

So here's the question, and please give an honest answer:

<­BR>



Would you select high contrast color film, or would you go with the classic simplicity of black and white?

color, it is cheaper to get developed.

You can always make a B&W print from a color negative. So, go with the color.

I'd use a 8 megapixel digital

I would throw the POS camera in the water and pull out my video camera - and start recording me attempting to save one of the most powerful women in America.

As I grabbed her hand with a FIRM MANLY LIFE SAVING grasp, the camera would record the elation on her face as she realized I had the strength to save her, then as my grasp began to loosen (due to factors unknown ) everyone on earth would see her face realizing the doom that was inevitable for her.

Then as she looked to my face, all you and the rest of the world would see is her face contorting to a disfigured wreck of shock and amazement at the ear to ear grin being displayed by her "rescuer".

But just before she slipped away, I would say:

"What?"
"God has apparently flushed the toilet woman. Who am I to select what turd goes and what turd stays"

"What do I look like, some elitist Liberal?"

Film is an important choice, sure.

Just don't forget to put on the wide angle lens 'cause of her FAT ASS.

I've answered this question before and the answer is still the same.

I'd take a picture of myself so I can capture the look on my face as I watch the Bitch drown.

I've always held a deep distain for those who choose to take pictures of a crisis rather than help, but in this case I'd go with the biggest and heaviest camera I could find. Color or Black and White, don't care, but if the bitch were to somehow swim her way to where I'm safely standing I'd want something to bash her over the head with.
