My economics teacher posed us a weird question regarding needs and resources, and I'm curios what you guys might have answered

So, you're walking alone in a ghetto, at night, and you need to go to the bathroom after drinking about 3 bottles of soda (don't laugh yet :p ), so my question is, what would you take care to do first/ preoccupy you more? the need to go to the bathroom or the need for safety/ taking cover? :D

I honestly have no idea what I'd do in such a situation, how about you guys?

I can't think of why I'd be there, but getting out of there would be the first thing on my mind. Safety first, absolutely!

yer, you cant help a bodily function, where as safety is kinda like a fear, something you could kinda control

I'd just pee all over the potential muggers. 2 birds, 1 stone.

I would try to get out of there offcourse.
My bladder might explode on the way, but rather that than my head. :)
:p

If you are in ghetto, who says that you aren't part of the ghetto? perhaps, you are the king of the ghetto and, in that case, you could solve your necessities in any corner :)

If this was real id probably be crying and nearly bursting but id probably keep really quiet and make my way out unnoticed or ring someone or... Randomly pee somewhere xD

The question doesn't imply any implicit need to fear for my safety, so I would use the bathroom first.

The question is a common investment senerio most people get asked.

How does it relate to the world of Business? Well, going to the bathroom indicated unknown risk that presents itself when you invest in something new (like a new product or a new form that just entered the market.)

Think of it this way: I know that saftey comes first but if you do take a chance and pee in the washroom, you'll have a fee bladder and you get to go back home without worrying if you can hold it till then. There is that risk of getting mugged in the washroom but if you're gutsy enough and chance falls in your favor, then your investment pays off.

I'd whip it out and say 'you will respect my manhood'..then I'd walk down the road while cuttin' the soda loose. I assume this one's only aimed at guys? I mean girls gotta squat and stuff. :o

I know this is a question but what the heck would you be doing in the ghetto? At NIGHT?:ohn:
My answer would be safety 'cuz people in the ghetto at night will not care who u r, they will pop your ***.

I'd go to the bathroom. Unless there was some immediate danger I could see, running out the ghetto like a crazy scared person would draw lots more attention to myself than going to the loo...

Safety! (I'm used to hold it long, sometimes at work I can't do otherwise:D )

What I don;t understand is why would an economic teacher ask such a question? What's his point?

Safety for me. :) I can hold on for many hours in those situations. :p

Safety first. I can hold it for up to 12 hours (and usually do it every 6) so that shouldn't be a problem. :)

another strange question from a teacher.
Still, for me safety is more important:p
