The Question Club
1. You're working at this new job. It's technological breakthrough-level stuff, and your company is developing the first time travel machine. The way it works is, you open a portal to the past and as long as you tell the machine to hold the portal, the portal stays open for that long, up to 3 hours. You're assisting one of the techie guys, and the machine is completed during his shift. He looks around, and there's not anyone else around but you two. He then starts programming the time machine to go back in time, shortly before Hitler's birth. He admits to you that he plans on travelling back in time to push Hitler's mother down a flight of stairs while she's still carrying him, thus cancelling out WWII and the holocaust. He leaps through the portal. You notice that there's a 2 hour window before the portal closes. What do you do? Go through the portal yourself and stop him, or let him complete his goal?
2. This one's for the ladies. You're driving late at night when a car careens into yours. You both get out, and it's clear that the damage is only on your own vehicle. You figure it's about $1,500 worth of repairs needed. You're about to call 911 when the guy stops you. "Please, here me out. I've been drinking tonight, and I'm terribly sorry about the damage. This was a one-time thing. I was getting liquored up because my brother is moving to Europe and I won't see him for a good while. If you report this accident, it'll just create much annoyance on my end. I see your car is damaged. My money is all tied up right now in other things, so I can't compensate you monetarily. However, I am a gifted plastic surgeon. If you were to not get the authorities or insurance companies involved, I will give you a free boob job. Either enlargement, reduction, whatever. I'll make em just the way you like em. This service I normally charge over 6k for, and that's valued at much more than the cost of repairs. What do you say?" He shows you his medical license and his business card, vouching for his occupation. Do you take his offer, or do you get the insurance company involved to get your car fixed?
