Default Door A or Door B

Found this on another forum. After thinking about it, I probably would choose Door B.

You wake to find yourself in a plain room with two doors opposite each other and a note on the table. Reading the note, you find that you have been selected for a scientific study into human psychology.

The note tells you that the experiment takes place over the next 20 years, and you may not leave until that time is up. It tells you to press button A to open room A or B to open room B. By opening one door, you permanently lock the other door. By pressing both buttons simultaneously, you permanently lock both.

Behind door A is a hemispherical room with radius twice your height, in which you would be constantly observed. If you enter that room, you may request (by speaking into the microphone in that room) to have an identical clone of any person you name or describe brought to you, including real life versions of fictional characters. The clone will obey whatever you command without question. You may switch your clone for another human once every month, but if you want to get rid of your clone you can kill it without any consequences. The clone CANNOT speak. It’s like a zombie that can obey basic instructions like “bend over”, “come here”, “massage my feet” etc. The clone comes naked and won’t obey any instruction to harm you.

You can also request as many inanimate, NON-ELECTRONIC objects to be brought to you as you want, as long as there is judged to be no way that you could use the item to kill yourself or escape. If you do attempt to kill yourself, you will be sedated and returned to your room, with the items you used permanently removed. (Remember that you can ask to have all the essentials brought to you whenever you want; a bed, meals, drink etc). You will be force-fed if you choose to starve yourself.

Behind door B is a gun and a bullet.

Which would you choose, and why?

Note: YOU CANNOT ESCAPE FROM EITHER ROOM, SO STOP TRYING. THIS MERELY SHOWS YOUR INABILITY TO CHOOSE. EITHER LIVE IN THE FIRST ROOM FOR 20 YEARS OR COMMIT SUICIDE.

This is a very tough question. But after a little thought, I would choose door B. Any life that you cannot interract socially, is a life not worth living. I guess you could say, better luck next life?

Door B. Door A would eventually be boring and lonely.

Wow. I guess suicide is the only option. When I thought of Door A, it seemed like a possibility, but 20 years is just too long. And what would I do when I went back to the real world? It would be like a Rip Van Winkle situation.

Door A.
I will find a way out. As long as I'm alive with access to resources, there is always hope. Once you're dead, you have lost. By choosing death, you let them win, by breaking you. ^^;

I mean as much as I would hate to be trapped somewhere for 20 years, I would rather just stay there and find a way out or something instead of taking my own life.

Well. I'd say A. I'd rather not die, and twenty years will go quickly when you have nothing to look forward to inbetween. If I REALLY wanted to die early, I could eat myself to death.

I'd choose Door A. I'd just get me a Bible and read it a couple of thousand times.

Think of it this way. Would you rather shoot yourself or beat up George Dubbya Bush every month. But wait, they appear naked, so forget that.

I'd get me one of those big fluffy pandas that you win from carnivals, make me a campfire and drink some hot choccy.

All I ever need. Big fluffy panda, campfire, hot choccy, a Bible, a book of crosswords, a dictionary and a thesaurus and a pencil.

And pudding.

"Oh, I'm not satisfied. I think I'll kill myself. :D"

Besides, Door A sounds fun. >]

Door A.

By the time I got out, I would be able to think a way to end my life.

And either way, my social skills are failure, so it wouldn't matter that much to me.

Door A FTW.

Door A, no contest.

After 20 years, I'm let free anyway. Plus, I could have a different woman (or man, I guess if I got REALLY bored) with me every month.

As sad as that comment was, I'm serious. It'd be the only thing to do that would keep me busy for 20 years. Plus, it works for fictional characters, so...

Franny Von Karma
Alice Cullen
Zelda
Samus
Padme Skywalker

The list could go on forever...

I seem like the kind of person who'd pick door B.



Instead, I'll pick door A. Because I'm too frickin' stubborn.

My immediate thought after reading A's description was "Endless Bondage!" Erhm. But then I read the 'basic actions' part and figured that sex would be too complicated for the clonies. >.>'' Either way, a new guy every month (me is female) would be... fun. *chuckle* For awhile.

Plus, endless books with little-to-no interruptions would be AMAZING.
