    On a lifeboat!

    Just chop off an arm or leg of about 8 random people. That will lessen the weight enough so that everyone can survive.

    Water, boats, sharks... I knew this was a problem for a pirate!


    I think Sparko's answer comes from personal experience

    In general, I find "what might Jesus have me do?" is a much better question than "what would Jesus do?"
    Something is always happening, but when it happens, people don't always see it, or understand it... or accept it.

    Roll the lot, and whoever it lands on, gets thrown overboard. Every decision of the lot comes from the LORD anyways.

    I probably wouldn't have a "lot" handy, so I'd have to very quickly find a way to randomize who gets chunked. And I'm not good at quick thinking.

    How about the old villain has two of your friends/loved ones held hostage and you can only save one! And you are a character in a story where it is only up to you and you can't call the cops for some crazy reason! Hopefully y'all decided beforehand...

    I may know friends/loved ones better than ones on the lifeboat, I may consider who acts best under stress and most comfortable going home to God.

    I would ask how many voted for Obama.

    1 Tim 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.

    They aren't in the lifeboat! They were rescued by an evil villain who now want to kill everyone in an evil death trap!
