That seems to be the consensus- save the child because that's what our spouse would want us to do.
I suppose that's deviating from Khushi's original question, because it's almost transferring responsibility for our actions to our partner (hey, we let them drown, they can't contradict us, right?).
I still say, if I were in that situation, my heart would tell me to save my spouse, but I know she'd beat the holy bejesus outta me every single remaining day of my miserable, childless life.

If I may indulge in a little thread hi-jack (sorry Khushi)
My wife runs a small store, and my sister works with her. I was visiting them one day (totally random, no reason to... didn't usually etc) and two guys came in to rob the store. One had a gun, one had a hammer, both were offa their tits on drugs.
So, did I stand between the gun and my wife of ten years, or between the gun and my baby sister, who I'd looked after for 30 years?
Or, did I run like a pussy, piss running down my legs?
Who would you save?

And, all opinions are valid, whether you've been held up, or have a wife, or a sister, or a hammer... Smile

I'd start moving really fast so the two guys get really confuzzled, then I'll grab the hammer and start whacking the shit out of the guy with the gun... then I'll take the gun and rob the store myself, and change my name to Evil McEvilness and with the money of the store I'm gonna start an evil corporation that uses suicide penguins to take over the world... then when I have conquered the entire world, I'm gonna build a really big friggin wall with an awesome painting painted on it and then I'm gonna hop in a BMW Z3 and crash into the wall until I die of it...

Close, but they were suicide puffins... this is the northern hemisphere, make note of your surroundings, or you'll never be a proper evil genius.

Given the fact that I occupy a decent volume I'd try to possition myself so that I shield both of them (providein they are close to toggeder). Also if the two guy realy seem bent on killing someone I would charge the guy with a gun (and probably get shot at this point, hopefuly not mortaly) and try to by time for my sister and wife to escape. Rather heroic of me, don't you think!

The aggresors in Antidistinctlyminty question are heavily drugged, so it is rather safe to assume they might miss vital organs if the shot... Now, presumeingly there is a cop arround, he may have be able to save me, then I spend a few months/weeks in the hospital and get recognition in the papers as a hero! Very Happy

NOT THE PENGUINS!!

now, see.. i don't have a sister.. but if it was one of my brothers, given how extremely protective i am over them already, there's a higher chance of me shielding him more than anyone (except with parents.. in this case, both my brothers and i would run over to protect them).

but i don't know what anti would have done. do tell.

Penguins? PENQGUINS!

You should be neutered for your crimes boy! No one even thinks about the death of the Frank Sonatra of birds without deserving a good spanking.

aw, give him a break already, you're ruining his heroicness with your down-to-earth cynicism. Wink

as to the question, wasn't there an option of handing the druggies the money they presumably came for, letting them just go, and not risking anybody's life? coz that's what i would hope to achieve in a situation like this. non-heroic, maybe, but damn reasonable, i reckon.

If I buy a pool and loads of champagne, will you go skinny dipping with me and then we both commit suicide?

And about the penguins... I WILL USE PENGUINS!!! THIS WHOLE WORLD IS GOING TO BE NUKED ANYWAY ONCE I KILL MYSELF SO WHO CARES WHETHER THE PENGUINS DIE HELPING ME TO TAKE OVER THE WORLD, OR DIE BECAUSE IT IS RAINING FIRE ON THEM... BIBLICAL SCALE!!!

Rrrrrrright...

Kids, don't do drugs, drugs are bad... instead, do alcohol... like, gin and bitter lemon... you're totally off of this world after half a bottle of gin and the best part is, you don't even get a hangover...

Simon, what does the Pandaren have to say about Polar Bears? Allies or rogue brutes serving the Penguins?

Oh, and the penguins have teh SnowMan too. Fear the frost attack from its carrot nose. Brr.

Somehow that picture made me think about that manga film Blue Submarine Nr. 9 or something... that movie was so awesome... that one and Spriggan are the only manga movies I really like...

Now ofcourse someone is gonna tell me it's not manga but anime or something... somehow I always make that mistake...

I don't know. Maybe the druggies are willing to waste some ammunition on you. As for a grave stone, is always good to have one. This is carved with the English translation of my name:
