This test only has 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 ewspaper, 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 two options--you can save the life of G.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?

It's impossible to like G.W. less than I do without hating him. I don't hate him. I sigh and shake my head not out of disappointment at what he does (because I believe what he is is quite simple) but at how others react (or fail to react) to what he says and does.

My initial reaction before scrolling down was to say I'd (grrr) save his life.

Then I'd shoot a couple of rolls of his soaking stump as it lay wheezing on the ground. In living colour. Very Happy

And maybe go on the talk show curcuit: "I saved his life but wasn't particularly happy to do it."

I can feel it coming in the air tonight, oh Lord
I've been waiting for this moment all my life, oh Lord
Can you feel it coming in the air tonight, oh Lord, oh Lord

Well if you told me you were drowning, I would not lend a hand
I've seen your face before my friend, but I don't know if you
know who I am
And I was there and I saw what you did, I saw it with my own two
eyes
So you can wipe off that grin, I know where you've been
It's all been a pack of lies

Although, he is not my favorite person, my initial thought would be to save his life. But, additionally, I would get him to agree to do a photographic essay or something which would make me lots of cash Smile

Agreed...I would save him just so I can request not to pay American taxes for the rest of my life.
