Some of You May Die

The trolley problem. It's a thought experiment there's a trolley coming down the tracks and just ahead, tied to the tracks there are five people. They can't escape, can't move, all they can do is watch the trolley on its way to kill them. Just before though there's a fork in the tracks, and a switch to control it.
