    Only one question, but it's a very important one.

    Please don't answer it without giving it some serious thought. 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.

    You're in Florida...In Miami, to be exact... There is chaos around you,
    caused by a hurricane and severe floods. This is a flood of biblical
    proportions. You are a photo-journalist working for a major newspaper
    caught in the middle of this great 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 showing all its destructive fury. You see a man in the water; he
    is fighting for his life, trying not to be taken away with the water and debris. You move closer. Somehow the man looks familiar. Suddenly, you know 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 two options. You can save him or you can take the most dramatic
    photos of your life. So, you can save the life of George W.Bush, or you can
    shoot a Pulitzer Prize winning photo, documenting the death of one of the
    world's most powerful men.

    Now, here's the question (please give an honest answer):

    Would you select colour film, or rather go with the classic simplicity of
    black and white?

    and the point of that being???

    i would save him, get him to give me a decent job and then get an interview off him and take photos of him looking a bit wet and desheveld. i would say colour as it would look better in this case.

    Now I admit that this was one of my bosses jokes (usually very bad) but even I didn't think this one was that bad.

    I'd go with the black-and-white...but ideally I'd have a video camera with me. That way the networks could play my footage over and over and over and over, for the whole country to enjoy.

    Full color. First I'd rig my camera in a tree (preferably a video camera) to take pictures of me saving him. Then I would somehow hint to him that he owes me something, and I expect something in return (a high paying job doing nothing would be nice). :D

    i would save him for two reasons

    1) it's the decent thing to do
    2) saving W would prevent cheney from moving into the oval office ;)

    Didn't the mods Wasteland this question variant the last time it was asked?

    Especially since somebody forgot to put it in the proper forum in the first place.
