Questions that require quick thought. Check the answer that first leaps out at you

You're driving along in another city late at night, going through a lonely stretch of road you've never been before. It's after midnight. Up ahead, you hear a scream, as a woman runs across the road, about 25 feet in front of you. Behind her is a man carrying a machete, wearing a mask, obviously chasing her. They're both oblivious to you, despite both being in your headlights. She stumbles and falls on the shoulder of the road, and he raises his machete. You have a 2 seconds to react. What do you do? There's not time to get out of the car

You're walking to your car late at night (11pm or so). It's another block. In your periphery, you see someone crossing the street to intercept you. You glance over and it's a 6'5 guy, broad shouldered, wearing a camo jacket and a t-shirt that appears to read 'I like rape'. He's smiling. You walk faster and he walks faster to head you off. As he's about 5 feet away and about to step onto the sidewalk, you notice a stick on the grass. What do you do?

For whatever reason, you react with violence and hit him with the stick. He clutches his head, which is bleeding and says 'I was just going to ask you where the freeway was...' as he passes out. Only then do you notice his t-shirt, as he falls on his back. It was partially hidden while standing, but uncovered, the shirt reads 'I like Grape Nuts', with the G and Nuts hard to see. No one is on the street. No one saw you. Suddenly, you hear a siren. It's approaching. It'll pass your current spot in 5 minutes. What do you do?

Hastily make my way to my car and get out of here

You're in your room. You're wearing just shorts and a t-shirt. You're walking towards the door when you notice a large spider climbing it. At the pace it's going, it'll move out of reach in about 4 seconds. You quickly glance down. The only things within easy reach are a slipper (or flip-flop), a glossy magazine that you haven't read yet, and an empty soda can. What do you do?

Smash the spider with the magazine
