If you can save one person in this whole world

    So the scenario is hypothetical of course.

    You have in your hand the ability to save one person, and one person only. So after you make your choice, you will be the only two people living on Earth.

    Who do you choose? Mother, father, brother, sister, boyfriend, ex-wife, son, daughter, friend?

    Or do you find it too hard to choose one person only that you prefer not to save anyone?

    This scenario came up from a group discussion I had with friends on the topic of "who is the most important person in your life"

    So this scenario may help one imagine the possibility of life without someone / with that someone as the only other human left.

    So what do you think? One person or no one? And if it is one person, who is it and why?

    P.S. You can have as many pets as you want. Saving one human and saving a pet are not mutually exclusive icon_smile.gif

    Although I feel horrid passing over the Mothrr and the Father and the siblings and so on, mine would be Sir David Attenborough. And you said saving pets is allowed so I'd make a pet for the namesake of every non human being on the planet (I LOVE hypotheses!!!), and then have Sir D.A teach me.

    My best friend from high school, who is no longer with us. I miss him every day since his passing and would certainly enjoy him being the only one left to be with.

    I would do the responsible thing and save an unrelated female for repopulating the Earth. It would be fun to try and repopulate the Earth with the guy who plays Renly in Game of Thrones but not very responsible icon_sad.gif

    I will base this just on the people in my life that have already passed. Of course I think of my grandparents, but they had wonder full and very rich lives, and luckily my parents are still here.


    This was my best friend Mona, we did everything together, could talk about anything and life was just fun.. I think about her everyday, even posting this I am overcome with emotion. She was an amazing person who never judged or said anything bad about anyone. She passed away 15 years ago from AID's and I miss her dearly.

    Fuck that, no one lives and game over for everyone. Sounds like a horrible life for either of those survivors anyway.

    Also as far as repopulation the absolutely only feasible way at even the slightest attempt at repopulation would involve you eventually impregnating your daughters and your sons impregnating their sisters. Even then I see the chance at successful repopulation extremely nil.

    I will save no one, can't choose from the ones I love..
    Maybe I will save the one person I hate the most and make my life interesting by starting a hunting game.. icon_twisted.gif

    That is so sweet, and she looked like a really beautiful woman (from the picture) and on the inside as well (based on what you narrated)

    It is so interesting that some replies want to do the responsible thing and repopulate the earth instead of taking the melancholic / romantic / end of world scenario of being with the one you love icon_smile.gif

    I've already saved enough, so enough is enough. Time to pass it on the the animals.
