    Got an email forward I actually appreciated today:

    This test only has one question, but it's a very important one. By giving an honest answer, you will discover where you stand morally.

    The test features an unlikely, completely fictional situation in which
    you will have to make a decision.

    Remember that your answer needs to be honest, yet spontaneous.

    Please scroll down slowly and give due consideration to each line.

    You are in Florida, Miami to be specific. There is chaos all around you caused by a hurricane with severe flooding.

    This is a flood of biblical proportions.

    You are a photojournalist working for a major newspaper, and you're caught in the middle of this epic disaster.

    The situation is nearly hopeless. You're trying to shoot career-making photos.

    There are houses and people swirling around you, some disappearing under the water.

    Nature is unleashing all of its destructive fury.
    Suddenly you see a man floundering in the water. He is fighting for his life, trying not to be taken down with the debris.

    You move closer, somehow the man looks familiar. You suddenly realize who it is.

    It's Cristiano Ronaldo!
    At the same time you notice that the raging waters are about to pull him under.

    You have two options--you can save the life of Cristiano Ronaldo or you can shoot a dramatic Pulitzer Prize winning photo, documenting the death of one of the football world's
    most exciting player's.

    So here's the question, and please give an honest answer :




    Would you select high contrast colour film, or would you go with the classic simplicity of black and white?


    Tee Hee!

    I'm shooting digital, so I don't have to make that decision right now :)

    Great post! Thanks.

    It's said that many years ago someone wrote the following letter to a newspaper advice column:

    'I'm in love with two women. I must choose between them. One is a sweet, lovely young lady without a cent to her name. The other is an old harridan worth $10 million.'

    'Please advise soonest on the best way to invest $10 million.'

    I think this is the fifth time I've seen that joke posted here :lol:

    but all the previous times it was George Bush instead of Ronaldo

    I've got it on two occasions with either George W. Bush or our own PM John Howard. :lol:
