Andre’s Bit: Morality Test


Hugh Paxton’s Blog found this one a bit of a poser. Give it a go!

From: Andre Gast []


Read to the end before making a judgement.

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 fictional situation, in which you will have to make a decision.

Remember that your answer needs to be honest and spontaneous.

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


You are in London. There is chaos all around you, caused by a storm with severe flooding. This is a flood of biblical proportions.

You are a photo-journalist 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 into the water. Nature is unleashing all of its destructive fury.


Suddenly, you see a man 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 realise who it is.

It’s the Muslim Cleric, Abu Hamza, the one-eyed, hook handed bastard who hates non-Muslims and wants the UK to become an Islamic state.

You notice that the raging waters are about to take him under forever.

You have TWO options:

You can save the life of Abu


You can shoot a dramatic Pulitzer Prize winning photo, documenting the death of one of the country’s most despised, evil and powerful men.



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