Violins and Easter

You wake up in the morning and find yourself back to back in bed with an unconscious violinist. A famous unconscious violinist. He has been found to have a fatal kidney ailment, and the Society of Music Lovers has canvassed all the available medical records and found that you alone have the right blood type to help. They have therefore kidnapped you, and last night the violinist's circulatory system was plugged into yours, so that your kidneys can be used to extract poisons from his blood as well as your own. If he is unplugged from you now, he will die; but in nine months he will have recovered from his ailment, and can safely be unplugged from you.

On wednesday the Fuddled Medic had a tutorial on ethics, he had forgotten how much fun ethics could be.

Have a good easter, postings will restart next week.

  1. I'm a violin player! Was going to be a famous musician (well, an orchestral one) before life got in the way..

    One of the dilemmas we had to solve was a bandit getting on a bus to shoot everyone. He has a change of heart and says that only one person needs to be shot, provided that you do it. What do you do?

    Of course, we said shoot the bandit. I think they changed the question after that.

    Have a good Easter FM!
