My friend and colleague Berry needs a lot of data for a study she is carrying out at the moment. If you have finve minutes to spare to have a go yourself and / or wouldn't mind linking to this post, that would be wonderful.

Interesting... a classic problem, and one where philosophers airily say 'people tend to think that...' with very little evidence!

As kargicq says, an interesting take on a classic problem.

Fascinating. I've always loved the trolley/fat man problems, even though they were a bit overused in lectures.
thanks for the link!

I have done the survey, and will link to it next time I post.

And he did, so I did the survey.

I suspect I'm an outlier.

Done and dusted. Had this linked to me from surprising quarters.

A question. If it really is confidential, anonymous and private, is all the information being sent encrypted? Cos if it's not, it ain't.

Advanced encryption standard (AES 256 bit encryption.)

Ah. I've been keeping this window open till I had a moment to get round to this, but now I have I see that it appears to be a thought experiment we discussed in detail in moral philosophy at St. Hilda's, so I suspect I had better not answer on the grounds of not being a representative 'general public'. Just wanted to let you know.
