Have you ever stopped watching/reading the news for a couple of weeks and then ended up missing something that was a pretty big deal, that EVERYONE ELSE seemed to know about?

I met up with a friend of mine a couple of summers ago in Paris, after she'd been backpacking for three weeks around Europe. About a week after that, we were at my Aunt's house in Austria, and she had access to a TV for the first time since she'd left. The newscaster mentioned something about Micheal Jackson's death and she was FLOORED. She had no clue that he'd died.


And, because I like to torture myself by coming up with morbid and outlandish scenarios and trying to decide what I would do if faced with them:

If for some reason you had to choose between saving the life of your pet (dog, cat, bird, lizard whatever) and the life of a person that you'd never met and knew nothing about, which would you save? You don't know anything about the person at all and the his/her death would not have any impact on your life at all (outside of sealing his/her fate).

Please include what type of pet you have in the answer, and maybe a picture! :)
