A moral question

Abu-HamzaThis 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 give due consideration to each line.


You are in London and there is chaos all around you caused by a hurricane with severe flooding.

This is a flood of biblical proportions.

You are a photo-journalist 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.

There are houses and people swirling around you, some disappearing into the water.

Nature is unleashing all of its destructive fury.


Suddenly, you see a man 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 Muslim Cleric Abu Hamza (the hook handed bastard). You notice that the raging waters are about to take him under forever.

You have two options:

You can save the life of Abu or you can shoot a dramatic Prize winning photo, documenting the death of one of the country’s most despised, evil and powerful men!


Please give an honest answer…

Would you select high contrast color film, or would you go with the classic simplicity of black and white?

  1. well, i suppose i’ll have to save him, if only because religion dictates that maliciousness towards others is a bad thing. but i won’t give him a ride on my super motor boat. he’ll have to wait the flood out. XD

  2. I would save him, only so that i can claim i have not become him to end him.

    I would not let him go though, and i would still make the picture after the rescue. That and he is probably more worth alive then dead.

    All that being true, right then and there he is just as much a victim as i am a photo-journalist.

    I would go for the high contrast color film by the way.. 🙂
