Also what is this?

Today's "Writer's Block" entry, on the LJ front page:

Rescue mission

If someone intentionally set fire to your home and you had ten minutes to get out, would you try to save the arsonist or your belongings?


Am I missing something in this question? If someone intentionally burned my house down, would I spend the precious seconds I had left to me saving all my material possessions that I had worked a lifetime for, or would I rescue the guy who set fire to the place? What the fuck kind of question is that? Who on earth would save the arsonist? HE'S THE ONE WHO SET FIRE TO THE HOUSE! I don't even understand what the question is attempting to illuminate. If someone stabbed you and stole all your money, and then gave himself a paper cut while taking all the money out of your wallet, would you go to the hospital or try to find a Band-Aid for the mugger?

I don't understand you sometimes, LiveJournal.
