Ethics Test

This test only has the 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 photojournalist 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 man floundering in the
water. He is fighting for his life, trying not
to be taken down with the debris. You move
closer...somehow the man looks familiar. You
suddenly realize who it is. It's George W.
Bush! At the same time you notice that the
raging waters are about to take him under...
forever.

You have the two options:

You can save the life of George.W.Bush,

or

you can shoot a dramatic Pulitzer Prize winning
photo, documenting the death of one of the
world's most powerful men.

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


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

Where's the 50 pound weight tied around a lasso?

I'd tell him that swimming and staying afloat is "a hard job".

I would venture that elaborateness of death is proportional to political impotence.

Then, a fatal fall from his tricycle would be most likely.

Whoa, whoa... Lofter! Was this a rhetorical question to drive a point home, never meant to be answered seriously -- or are you actually curious to see some serious answers?

I'd offer to sell him lakefront property with exquisite water views, of course.

Gentlemen and lady, you are no help at all! We're only going to get another president who's a Dick.:p

There's something called the Search function. When you search keywords, older topics sometimes materialize. You should try it some time.

Color print film. But B&W makes for a higher definition image, no doubt about it - especially the silver emulsions.

For color print - try Fujifilm Pro 160S - great for that pastel-like muted look. I have my babies loaded all the time with this stuff.

Yeah yeah use digital I hear you say. This film has 12 or more layers of chemicals - the film technology makes most digital technology look like child's play.

But I would try to save the man.

It's been so long since I posted this --

Honestly I had completely forgotten how it turns out in the end -- and I laughed just as loud this time.

It was meant for a seriously serious laugh.

Bush has provided us with many funny threads.

Unfortunately, they have made a rather crappy pair of pants.

Man, over the years we've had some interesting threads. Some I hope neer bubble up again. Strangely, I think I've matured in my posting. Thinking back to some earlier posting - I'd cringe to see it again.

Knowing how much guessing correctly means to you, I regret to inform you that I was searching for the keywords "Florida", "Bush" and "ethics".

I didn't exactly find what I was looking for, (one can always dream!), but Lofter's topic has turned out of those very rewarding consolation prizes.:D
