Moral Dillemma

(Thanks Aaron)

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 under the most arduous conditions.

Houses, people, even animals swirl 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.

This man looks familiar.

You suddenly realize who it is.

George W. Bush, president of the United States of America!

At the same time you notice the raging waters all around, about to take him under... forever.

He goes under once. He goes under again, but comes up sputtering.

You have two options:

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


You can shoot that career-making, tragic, Pulitzer Prize winning photo, documenting the death of the world's most powerful man.

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?

Black and White can really catch the emotion better, IMO. And the stark contrast would befit the situation.
