if you are a fireman.....

test yourself :) imagine this. you are a fireman. your job is to save lives. or so that we've been told. one day your department receives an emergency call from a civilian that reports a building is on fire somewhere. you and your team rush to the scene and the fire is already at its worst stage. you and your team try to control the situation from getting worse. suddenly you heard a cry from the building screaming for help. you can see the victim's eyes pleading for your mercy. if you don't get in, the victim will be burnt to death. if you rush inside, the chance to get through the fire is only 40%; either for the victim or you yourself. what are you going to do? take the 60% chance to die with the victim as hero;leaving your family that depends on you behind? or; choose the 40% chance and bear the guilt.
