Who/What would you save

In a major emergancy, say a fire which is treathening your family, house, car, all your important valubables, who or what would you choose to save?

Car, House, Wife, Kids, Pet, music/porn collection, etc

its a multi optioned & private poll ...don't be shy.

Me I'd save my family 1st & worry about the rest later.

Really? Honestly? You'd put something mechanical over the flesh and blood person who happens to be the love of your life?

Re: Who/What would you save

I voted "other" because i would probably save my own first
Although we all say we would off course save our precious loved ones first, it's been proven that people in extreme situations, where their own life is in jeopardy too, the survival instinct is stronger than all the rest

Maybe she isn't the love of his life.

Even still, I can't imagine picking a piece of machinery over a human being. I agree with Wim that self preservation is likely to be on the top of the list, but cars are so far down my list that they'd barely cross my mind.

Re: Who/What would you save

First wife (if I had one) and kids(if I had them), then pets(I have one). Anything that could suffer I'd save first. Then the car if I could. Wouldn't like to see ol' blacky go up in flames.

We know you love your $$pd really

I'm just going to keep mine until it blows up or becomes unreliable - presently I can't see the point of buying something else because I'll just end up with the same car but newer.

Maybe once Alfa bring out the 300hp 4WD model I'll change my mind

Re: Who/What would you save

I voted 'other' as I'm in agreement with Wim on this one. I'd love to say my family would come first but if I'm no longer alive I can't really save them so, as selfish as it may sound, the answer really would be ...me!!

Well Gibbo it is quite possible to save your kids for example by taking (or even throwing) them out of a burning house, a burning vehicle, a sinking ship etc and not being able to get out yourself. Your survival is not always an essentiality.
Imho the next generation must be a priority since it is ment to outlive the former one.

Re: Who/What would you save

I still think that your initial instinct will be to save yourself, then others may appear on your list of priorities and they may very well subsequently outlive you as a result of your actions. Don't forget, instinct generally happens without thought. You may well 'think' about saving others first but instinct will have already kicked in before that thought process.
