For your friends or family if one of them days ever came?

Close friends and family? In a heart beat.

Yes, definitely. If it was either me or the Dreamcast, I'd gladly sacrifice myself.

I cannot answer this without a context. The "dead or alive" scenario is unrealistically easy. What if you could save another, but would become permanently disabled? And what does this "saving" mean for this other person exactly?
In general I would try to optimize the situation for everyone, but in that equation I would definitely keep myself in mind as well.

Assuming I still have the relationship with my family that I have now, yes.

14-09-09, 23:38
To save them you mean? For my son, absolutely.

Bellacima
14-09-09, 23:49
Yes like anything that can happen in the world. Would your take your life for others to exist and live on because of you. That is what i am asking. :)

I also would do this for my close friends and family that is how much they mean the world to me.

And its good to hear that there is good hearted people out there in the world as well :)

Umm...na-ah...like, screw them, they had their life and I have mine...but if it was Jill...well, then it would be a totally different story http://i79.photobucket.com/albums/j139/Vargamora/120px-Awesome_hurr_hurr.png

For some of my family no, since I dont like most of my mums side of the family but for the ones I do care about then yes, if it came to it, Id save someone elses life even if it meant giving up my own, only one or 2 friends would I ever do that for.

Alex Shepherd
14-09-09, 23:57
I would sacrifice for my family and my TRUE BEST FRIENDS!
And I also would sacrifice myself saving my country, so being a soldiers is what I want in my whole life.
I will never say No.
But to something else? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

KyleCroft
14-09-09, 23:58
Simply, yes.

LaraRules81
15-09-09, 00:06
Family? Yes.

Friends? Not likely.

15-09-09, 00:09
Family for sure. But friends....it depends

Sir Croft
15-09-09, 00:09
I can't say I'd sacrifice myself for my friends or family. I'd do that for my mother and my sister and that's it.

Nenya awakens
15-09-09, 00:11
Well... me and my mum havent spoken in years because shes an alcoholic twat that ruined my childhood and has tried to destroy my life ever since... but if she was ill and needed a kidney then i would give it to her.. shes my mum.

Bumio
15-09-09, 00:12
i would sacrifice myself for my mom and dad, no doubt.
but for friends - i don't think so.

*richietrent*
15-09-09, 00:12
Depends on; if that person would do the same for me?, and the situation!

Phlip
15-09-09, 00:14
**** yes, it would be a good excuse.

Spong
15-09-09, 00:16
Nope. My life is paramount to me. If one of my friends or family are stupid enough to get their life threatened, that's their lookout.

Lemmie
15-09-09, 00:19
It would depend who in my family - I would save my sister. My parents would want me to live, I think.

As for friends, it would depend heavily on context.

Aphrodite22
15-09-09, 00:22
i dont get it.. sacrifice my life for my family or friends??

nah i dont think so.. and for friends oh definitely NO

silver_wolf
15-09-09, 00:53
I'd like to think so. Already having something of a distaste for your own life helps.

Mokono
15-09-09, 01:18
I've done it before.

Agent 47
15-09-09, 01:30
in all honesty? no i wouldn't, not if it meant my demise would be the outcome.

every man for himself and all that :D

MadCroy101
15-09-09, 01:36
Yes, I would. I love my family ALOT (except my step-dad, I farking hate him alot)

January_Snow*
15-09-09, 01:37
I would save us both, there is always a way :)

ajrich17901
15-09-09, 02:05
In a heartbeat

thecentaur
15-09-09, 02:08
yup. if it was a dire situation and i had to sacrifice my life* yes

*i only say life because if i have to become like disabled or something then that's worse than living in my opinion. but then again, it's my opinion. lol

LaraLuvrrr
15-09-09, 03:46
Um... idk...

maybe. That's not an easy question.

patriots88888

Exactly! No one can say for sure until that situation arises. And let's all pray that it never does! ;)

LaraLuvrrr
15-09-09, 04:03
Exactly! No one can say for sure until that situation arises. And let's all pray that it never does! ;)

yea... I mean it would kinda imply that one life is more important than the other. But also you'd have to think would the person you are dying for want to actually die to save you?

It's trickier than just saying I'll die for someone... that person may be upset at you for doing it... and sometimes your life may be more valuable but then how is that determined? :confused: loll too complicated thank God that most ppl dont have to confront that situation.

I'd probably attempt to save myself and the other person and whoever dies then so be it.

Drone
15-09-09, 04:42

Night Crawler
15-09-09, 06:56

Lmao. *High five*

scoopy_loopy
15-09-09, 07:28
Nope. Not for my family, Im an arsehole :wve:

For someone I loved, or my closest friend, perhaps.

Punaxe
15-09-09, 10:19
I've done it before.

Do tell!

violentblossom
15-09-09, 13:05
My mom: yeah.

Siblings: yeah.

Step-father: I don't know, probably, but I doubt he'd ever let me.

My sisters from my real father: no.

Fiance: yes.

Daughter: no question.

Friends? It depends on which, but my best friends, absolutely.

This question makes me think of the Saw movies, for some reason.

tombraiderluka
15-09-09, 13:10
No I wouldn't. Those days will never come though :)

without a shadow of a doubt, id sacrifice myself if i saw a bus was going to hit a randomer.

id rather have it said that id saved someone then wringing my hands regretting it

LightningRider
15-09-09, 15:22
Of course, I'm not that heartless... yet. :pi:

xx_Hunt_xx
15-09-09, 15:38
For my mum, dad, brother and best mate yes
Anyone else....no!

James_Rutland
15-09-09, 15:39
However selfish this may seem, my life is mine to protect, even the closest friend i wouldn't sacrifice myself for, they would probably be the same if the time came.

However much I love my parents to bits, they would understand that i have a full life ahead of me, and they would thank me, as my mum would rather leave me, than i leave her. :(

If in the future i have children, then yes. Most certainly. :tmb:

Edit: Friends come and go, which also adds to why i wouldn't.

Absolutely. Nobody ****s with my family and friends but me! :mad:

Eleana
15-09-09, 15:51
I'd like to think I would for my mum, dad, sisters, brother, and my four friends. (I only have four people I call friends and I consider them family)

I don't think you really know unless you know the situation. If someone gave me the choice, I'd give myself to save them. In an accident? I have no idea how my body would react even if my mind was telling me to sacrifice myself.

As I said; I'd like to think so. :hug:

xXhayleyroxXx
15-09-09, 15:53
^ that just reminded me actually - my friend was lying on the road drunk and a big truck with logs was drving fastb towards her so i leapt sideays, knocked her into a wall and saved her. Just shows what people will do

Nerd For Life
15-09-09, 16:43
Honestly? Just for my mother, and that's it.

TombRaiderCool
15-09-09, 16:49
I agree with Eleana on this one, it's kind of hard to answer unless the situation really happens to you. I sure would like to think I would be able to save the ones closest to me but when it comes to the crunch, who knows? I would sure the heck give my best shot I hope! I would never like to see anyone so close to me get hurt.

Super Badnik
15-09-09, 16:49
For your friends or family if one of them days ever came?My family have been real jerks lately, so...:whi:
But anyone else i deeply love then, yeah, if i had to.

15-09-09, 16:51

15-09-09, 16:51
Of course I would, for my close family. I think something like that would not happen as a conscious decision but more like an instinct.

Depends on exactly who.. if it was my family.. eh no.. i hate them , friends probably yes :)

15-09-09, 17:50
I really don't want to think about it...

Benguitar
15-09-09, 18:13
Anyone. Anywhere. Anytime.

(edit)

Not because I hate my life, but I just have such a love for other people, and I'm just not selfish enough to watch someone else die when I could have saved them or taken their place. ;)

NemesisX13X
15-09-09, 18:15
If it was my family, (apart from my mom) Then no.

I don't think anyone can truly comprehend having to make that desicion unless the situation arises.

I would sacrifice myself to save a member of my family or a friend in a heartbeat. I always put my friend's feelings before my own and I'm usually the one caught up in their problems, trying to solve them and help them. I'd do anything to protect my friends.

My life is rather meaningless at the moment, so I'd say yes. What do I have to lose (beside my life)? :p Oh, right, nothing...

:eek: This thread reminds me of the Life Before Her Eyes film.

That's made me cry. :(
Of course, I would sacrifice myself for my best friend, and for my family.

Aphrodite22
15-09-09, 18:52
it surprises me how many ppl have said they would..

answer this :D

if theres a guy with a freakin chainsaw chasing ur friend/sibling and they catch him/her would u go there and say HEY NO LOOK AT ME and be killed by the freakin chainsaw and let ur friend/sibling run away?

larson n natla
15-09-09, 18:56
Yes, Id like to pass away before my grandparents I couldn't bare to live life without them :o

So you're saying letting my sibling getting slaughtered by a chainsaw would be a lot better? And the question doesn't specifically refer to a leatherface-esque killer.

no but there are 2 options...

1. ur sibling dies and u run away alive
2. u die and ur sibling runs away alive

2. u die and ur sibling runs away alive

As I was saying earlier, this "dead or alive" scenario is overly simplistic. What's to stop the murderer from killing us both? Or maybe us both can escape? Perhaps the question should be if we are willing to risk death if we think that would lead to the best outcome. In your scenario I would not choose to be mowed down so that my sister can escape, I would perhaps choose to risk my own safety by distracting the aggressor, but I would do so thinking that we both may have a chance. Things just aren't that black and white.

Sacrifice myself and hope my sister gets away. But I know she'd do the same for me so we'd probably both die. Wooh! >.>
