Joke 11

A young wife, her boorish husband and a young good looking sailor were shipwrecked on an island. One morning, the sailor climbed a tall coconut tree and yelled, “Stop making love down there!”
“What’s the matter with you?” the husband said when the sailor climbed down. ‘”We weren’t making love.”
“Sorry,” said the sailor, “From up there it looked like you were.”
Every morning thereafter, the sailor scaled the same tree and yelled the same thing. Finally the husband decided to climb the tree and see for himself. With great difficulty, he made his way to the top.
The husband says to himself, “By golly he’s right! It DOES look like they’re making love down there!”

    Yes, I asked that above. So you’re OK with the fact that sailor B could die simlpy because he could not swim as fast as sailor A, and sailor A has no moral responsibility to help his fellow man.But a slower swimmer has an extra moral responsibility and should meekly die. But wait. He was obviously stronger of the two, so does he not have a case here, does he not deserve to live.The whole exercise is impossible. We are looking at this from a wrong point of view. We are looking at it from a point of putting blame on a death. But both sailor acted in the way they did because they wanted to live. Sailor A obviously had no problem with seeing B die, he swam to save himself. B on the other hand pushed A off the plank to save himself. Neither acted with the motive to kill the other, but to save their own lives. That is the difference. It was and extra ordinary circumstance, and we have no right to judge.
