Absurd Trolleys: What is the "Best" Trolley Problem?

q 3

here to eat fish and erase the universe
A trolley leaves San Francisco for Los Angeles at 8:00 am. A second trolley leaves Los Angles for San Francisco at 8:00 am the same day. The distance between the two cities is 400 miles. If each trolley travels at an average speed of 50 mph what time will it be when the two trolleys collide, killing everyone onboard?

Yay! I solved philosophy! (kill count: 63)

I am one person deadlier than Torz.
(Also, a distressing number of people are willing to play God based on snap judgments.)

Edit: Also, curse you for indirectly distracting me with the entire website one level up from there, I have work to do dangit...

I care about robots. And lobsters (somewhat) but really didn't have any good options there...

bold of you to assume that killing one person to save many is justified

mang, if I hadn't made a decision at the beginning of going through those on how I would make decisions, idk if I could have finished going throug hthem all. For some reason, my brain seems to think that clicking a button on an internet site should have nearly as much emotional heft as actually pulling a lever or not.

I summon Kill Baby Hitler in defense mode!

Ah-HA! Just as I expected! Summoning Kill Baby Hitler in defense mode activated my trap card, Eternal Empathy! That sends Kill Baby Hitler to your discard pile, and summons my ultimate monster, The Forbidden Accord: Decision Paralysis! Now you lose 5000 life points, or 1000 life points for every trolley card in your deck! The choice is yours! Your move! Bwa ha ha!
