Today, I would like to pose a philosophical question and have audience participation.
Suppose you are in love with someone, in fact, you have found the love of your life. Now suppose that there is a powerful sorcerer who is envious of your love and makes you the following deal “Tomorrow, I will kill either the entire population of Africa or your love*.” Your choice. If you don’t choose, I will kill both.” No one else in the world will know it was your choice. Which would you choose and why?
If you decide to answer, please also tell me your gender. I have a very unscientific hypothesis about the answers I’ll get.
* Suppose these are disjoint sets and you don’t know anyone in Africa, etc etc — ie, choose between the love of your life and a billion strangers.
