Which would you save from a bus collision? Your dog or a foreign tourist ?

From the Wall Street journal

http://m.us.wsj.com/articles/a/SB100...?mg=reno64-wsj

Everyone would save a sibling, grandparent or close friend rather than a strange dog. But when people considered their own dog versus people less connected with them—a distant cousin or a hometown stranger—votes in favor of saving the dog came rolling in. And an astonishing 40% of respondents, including 46% of women, voted to save their dog over a foreign tourist. This makes Parisians' treatment of American tourists look good in comparison.


Myself I'd save my doggie

We'd say it's fairly obvious where Graham Anley's loyalties lie. Anley, his wife, Cheryl, and their 9-year-old Jack Russell terrier Rosie were sailing from East London to Madagascar on their yacht, The Boundless, when they hit a reef off the East London coast early Sunday morning. Fortunately, Rosie was wearing a specially tailored dog life jacket. Less fortunately, Cheryl's own safety line was snagged on the yacht's steering gear. Graham, clearly Husband of the Year material, saved the dog first, swimming to shore with Rosie before returning for Cheryl. The couple is fine, though the yacht sustained damage, and the same could probably be said for the pair's marriage.

Which would you save from a bus collision? Your dog or a foreign tourist ?

I'd save my dog over any stranger and probably some known to me.

Dog, ONLY. A foreign tourist has the advanced ability of a human body to brace for impact.
A dog would be oblivious.

If I have to choose between any people in this thread vs dog, I'd save the dog first because I know those people prefer to die for the lives of dogs.

But if those foreign tourists are children, then I'd go for the children first. Dog has better survival instinct than children.

They are selfish at life, and most of them are still teenagers who generally hate everyone.

saving your own dog over a human is selfish.

Perhaps you should stop responding. It's a no-win for you here. :dunno:

People die for unjust causes, and babies get aborted. Relax. I'm sure people's decisions would be different if ever in this situation...maybe.
