    I think Kristen Bell needs to take Kelly Rippas spot in Kelly with Ryan in the morning because when Ryan is a way Dax would be perfect to fill in it would be a great transition from Kelly and mark and Ryan Kristin if you see this go apply for that job You'd be perfect for it❤🌻🤗 Sending loves

    I would not kill the guy I would let the 10 die as they were supposed to what if one of those people was a serial killer, or they accidentally killed 10 people when they were not supposed to live in the 1st person. All the people in the lobby would have to die they are supposed to die the janitor is healthy.

    Colbert is such an unfunny person. He sucks. He has no rapport with his guests and was very outclassed with Kristen. He only knows how to spit out fed lines. Here is a question for you: Why is he alive?

    Ok..kristen Bell..good about you start right there in LA first. Lots of homeless women out there. Teach them..train them..provide them the tech..and fund them like you said.
    Here's an idea..America has plenty of land. Move all the n women out of the city into a rural area..sub-divide land into small plots for each of them tiny houses..teach them how to grow and rear their own food. Build some small shops within their community so they can buy things they need from and also sell their produce to. Also set up a clinic for healthcare. If Cults can start their own community in the middle of nowhere, i don't see why you can't start this for the bums.

    There was a collision when earth was still a proto earth. Because of the crash earth‘s center tilted a bit to the right and the debris that came from the collision shaped the moon. That all made life possible, which then evolved.

    The actual follow up to the trolley problem is different. A trolley is headed towards 10 people. You are on a bridge ahead of the people and there is a very large man that you know you can push off the bridge in front of the trolley which will slow the trolley to the point that the 10 people will not get hit. Do you push the man or not.

    The doctor one is really easy because the janitor would need to be a near perfect match for at least one person, and he would unlikely to be a match for any, let alone all 10.
    The most likely outcome would be that you murdered one person and watched 10 others die from organ rejection.
    I wouldn’t touch any of them 🤷🏻‍♀️

    • Josh S
      Josh S 2 months ago

      The scenario is predicated on the fact that the Janitor can save all 10 lives though, same with the surgeon who has a 100% success rate. It's not a realistic scenario, but it does demonstrate the dilemma of whether saving the many over the few is morally justified.

    Wait for the first person to die and give their organs to everybody else. Leave the janitor alone. He has a family.

    • Josh S
      Josh S 2 months ago

      @melissa thompson The rationale is that your only choice is killing the janitor, it's not a logic problem, you're mistaken if you think there's any other options here. It's the exact same question as the trolley, but now you have more agency, which then influences your decision to save the many over the few.

    • melissa thompson
      melissa thompson 2 months ago

      @Josh S As she posed it, each one has only one faulty organ; unless they're all going to die simultaneously, which was not given as part of the problem and therefore cannot be presumed, someone logically has to die first. Ethically you can let one dying person die, kill a healthy person, or allow up to ten people to die. I don't see the difficulty here. Someone is DEFINITELY going to die; what is your rationale for killing the healthy guy?

    • Josh S
      Josh S 2 months ago

      It's not a logic problem, it's an ethics question. You can't change the scenario, either the 10 die or the janitor dies, there's no in between, it's just a rephrasing of the trolley question, but the act of pulling a switch now becomes much, much harder. If you pulled the switch to save 10 lives and let one die, then you would probably let 10 die to save the janitor when you have more personal accountability in the matter.

    I hate to tell her that, that’s not how surgery works. Like you know basic blood type, going through the organ registries or the fact that there is immense protocols and teams to deal with that it wouldn’t be just one man.

    I love Kristen and I’m SO happy they’re gonna continue Veronica Mars!!!! 😀 I’d love if they went back to their idea of her being in the FBI, that short teaser from years ago where she in in the FBI and pretends to be a troubled teen in juvy to catch a pedophile was really good!!!
    I also love the Good Place 😛 they are such great actors and it’s such an interesting plot. And unlike most shows wasn’t too predictable, yet I still enjoyed where they took it 🙃

    hundred percent would not touch that janitor. Sorry 10 people but like, im not bout to kill someone else who probably has a family at home too just so the odds are in your favor. I can't be goin around doing god work. Janitor volunteers, thats a different situation.

    • Josh S
      Josh S 2 months ago

      That's the correct answer, at least to me, but then you have to examine the trolley question more closely, and why it is so much easier to kill the "janitor" when you're simply flipping a switch to reverse the course of killing those other 10.

  • Ben Zombie
