    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?"

    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.

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