I saw that on Elvia’s Blog and I though that it could do a good discussion. I’ll not make it a competition for “twitter follow backs”, everyone gets just an interesting discussion. I’ve posted my opinion on Elivia’s Blog, here I’m more interested in yours 😉 So here we go:
You are a member of a team who has to select 10 people to go into a shelter that will protect them from solar wave, so that when the worst of the danger has passed, they can begin to repopulate the earth and start civilization all over again.
You have been given 30 minutes warning to the solar wave that will wipe out the earth, except for the people you decide to allow into the shelter. There is not enough food or space for any more than 10 people.
You have to select from the following applicants:
- a pregnant, unmarried woman, 23, who’s blind.
- a male student, 19, who’s studying to be a Buddhist monk
- a 75 year old artist, who’s a skilled builder
- a 12 year old girl and her twin brother who’s very sick, they can’t be separated so this counts as two people
- a homosexual male with qualifications in agricultural engineering
- a mother of 3, not with her, 60 years old.
- a violent man, 24, who has just graduated as a doctor
- a female pop artist, 30, who hates being in confined spaces
- a female professor of philosophy, 54, with knowledge of traditional medicine
- an African-American male athlete
- a female computer expert who’s a member of Greenpeace but she’s infertile
- a politician who’s very wealthy and powerful in international business
- a male primary school teacher who’s racist
- a baby girl, 6 months old
- a paraplegic, who was a nurse before he had a car accident
You cannot change any facts available. You can assume things: for example, you can assume that the African-American athlete is reasonably young. (Adapted from MUELC’s IAP)
Let’s get it started!
