Rollin’ Rollin’ Rollin’

The original trolley problem provides mental exercise enough, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t some enjoyable twists on the form:

A runaway trolley is about to kill philosophy professors who invent trolley problems. Will you divert it?

And, for those of you who don’t think trolley problems are relevant to real life, imagine you have a vote in the US election but don’t feel either of the two leading candidates deserves to be President:

There are only two candidates likely to win: Trump and Clinton.

If you don’t vote for Clinton, Trump is more likely to win.

If you do vote for Clinton, you are supporting a candidate you don’t want.

Do you vote for Clinton?
