    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 her 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 realise
    who it is...
    It's Cristiano Ronaldo!

    At the same time you notice that the raging waters are about to pull him

    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 famous young players.

    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?

    Personally I find the stark impact of black and white to be more effective in these situations.

    Definately monochrome... he (was/is) a good footballer... so deserves but the best ;)

    (btw - I read in the newspaper today "The infamous Portugese winker..." - I thought that was extremely clever! :) )

    Yes...... but only because they can only speak Taiwanese and haven't a clue what you're talking about.....

    I'd go with colour in this situation. I think the blue of the water and the red of his kit would not stand apart enough in black and white.

    I have read that one before but being applied to George W Bush! I'm sure that this joke (like music ones) is recycled and just the names of people/ instruments changed each time! Has anyone else noticed this with jokes?
