CONUNDRUMS FOR THE BRIGHT AND NOT SO BRIGHT
Conundrums are around us all the time. I suspect every decision we have to make could be quantified as a conundrum.
FOR THE BRIGHT- A Painstaking Dilemma …
One particularly famous moral conundrum is the so-called “Trolley Problem,” in which you are standing on a train overpass and see an out-of-control train barreling toward a group of 5 workers on the tracks. You have a lever next to you that can divert the train onto another track with only one worker on it. Is it right to kill the one worker in order to save the other five?
These are the kinds of situations that Superman is placed into deciding by Lex Luther or Batman has to decide because of a situation created by The Joker.
FOR THE NOT SO BRIGHT- Ought to Be a Give-Me
Imagine you got into only two colleges – one was a better school with better faculty, but the other has a reputation for being more fun, and has a more socially active student body. Which school should you pick? Which one would be more conducive to your future happiness?
This one is the typical conundrum every senior in high school faces.
