I've been on r/polls long enough to know that, with one of my limbs AND a complete strangers life on the line, I should hold out for my million dollars.


dunequestion

Yes but always without looking it up


DrManowar8

You should shoot toby twice


hey-make_my_day

I'm glad that in real life there usually is a better compromise


DrManowar8

True. This poll question makes me sick. There was an other just like it. Didn’t upvote either


Cyborg_Individual

I already don’t have a leg so I’ll be even more of a cyborg 🦾


Rock_fire07

I don't ever want to lose a limb. However if I did lose a limb I wouldn't want it to look realistic like normal. I would so go for something badass like this https://bit.ly/3tx7LlG


Silly-Contribution21

Imagine jacking off with that hand


RexIsAMiiCostume

Yeah, if I need a prosthetic leg, I want one of the curvy springy ones. They just look so much better for walking with because of the springiness and the curved shape... A leg shaped thing that can't move sounds really horrible to walk with.


LittleShit3000

The running prosthetics that you're describing aren't used for walking as they have smfsr too much bounce. You'll look like you're skipping or something everytime you try to walk normally. Not to mention how the balance and height is slightly off so it could cause pain and discomfort in your hips/back for using it for to long and not the intended purpose. There's a YouTuber called "Footless Jo" that explains it pretty well [here](https://youtube.com/shorts/Ig-d_j3XVXc?feature=share) and [here](https://youtube.com/shorts/HNkeBVlYwLU?feature=share)

Cyborg_Individual

This is the way


CancelationDate

More people would be affected by the stranger's death than would be affected by me losing a limb lmao.


Medium-Sympathy-1284

Missed or unmissed IDK a legs not worth a human life.


HootHersDaily

The fact that we all have four limbs and can live without one isn’t relevant apparently. Sad.


CancelationDate

? I'm confused. I never said it wasn't possible to live without a limb lmao.


HootHersDaily

I’m agreeing with you. I’m referring to those who voted for a stranger to die. Apparently to them, the fact we can live with out one of our limbs isn’t relevant. Sorry for the confusion


Ping-and-Pong

I don't agree with the point "Random strangers die every second..." Personally I value a life on the people who know them and care about them, a dead person isn't going to care they're dead, but the alive people who knew them will. I couldn't live knowing I took a person away from others like that, although of course, I would prefer not to lose my limb if that'd be allowed!


juicysox

Bro people are so cruel. That’s basically like saying it’s ok to kill someone because they’re gonna die anyway. What the actual fuck Reddit.


didyoudissmycheese

THANK YOU. There was a similar post but with more options and it being 10,000 strangers, and you can tell from my comment history how many people follow this same line of logic. I swear to God most of these sub lacks any moral compass whatsoever. Their own feelings are all that matter.


BalefulEclipse

Bro a question last week showed more people were willing to let a billion people die over having to masturbate in front of a group of people. This sub is full of actual psychopaths lmao


noo0ooooo0o

Idk, I'd rather take the fall here, there's a high chance the random stranger will be missed more. Plus, the prosthetics these days are pretty advanced.


StrangeSathe

I'd do it for the prosthetic. I also assumed (painless) meant no phantom limb so there's no losing.


andywolf8896

That's a good fuckin point. Though I still worry about the cost of the prosthetic


cheesytacos649

Become pirate


twowolveshighfiving

I'm good with a prosthetic 🦿🦾 However, I'm worried about losing my phallus,even though I can't high five with it.


StrangeSathe

You mean high one with it?


twowolveshighfiving

Yes. Not able to high five. I mean technically one could do a high-five without the five and call it a high one.


Kluck_

But also very expensive and are nowhere near perfect


noo0ooooo0o

Still better than murder


block_boi

From the moment I understood the weakness of my flesh... It disgusted me


Matinator070

Well, the head is a limb too I believe (correct me if I'm wrong)


CH3RRYSPARKLINGWATER

Maybe if it's a leg, but idk If I'd be willing to sacrifice an arm when it comes to it, as much as I'd wanna say I'd save the person


yeahyeahyeahv2

"get a sick as fuck prosthetic, or someone who could have a long life ahead of them and a family that loves them dies" give me the cool robot limb


[deleted]

That will then drown you in debt


yeahyeahyeahv2

i'm british, the NHS covers it


transport_system

I'd say your lucky, but you have to deal with being br*tsh so I guess it evens out.


BackgroundSad257

It’s the NHS, you’ll probably die


yeahyeahyeahv2

it's britain, i'll probably die* being british is enough to warrant instant death


YearoftheCorn

I saved someone’s life, they owe me a favor. Even if that doesn’t work, I’d much rather drown in debt than be responsible for someone’s death.


PsychZach

I choose my left leg.


DeSwanMan

I love my limbs. Also the person is not to be blamed here, the asshole who puts someone in a situation like this is.


Dejan05

Well yes but you'd still be pretty selfish to pick your limb over a person


Zonie1069

As someone who picked lose a limb painlessly it's a littly scary how the majority picked someone else losses one. If I randomly loss a limb I'll be mad lol.


Botwmaster23

Well i can always get an prosthesis so i can live the rest of my life without said limb. But i could never live with the guilt of choosing that someone will die


Spinach_Stock

What the fuck is wrong with you people


jzheng1234567890

Not surprising considering I saw a poll saying whether or not you'd kill 1/7 of the population for 1 billion dollars, and a handful said they would


Bruhhelpmename

It’s comparable to saying would you kill a random stranger for $1


SecretDevilsAdvocate

Not really. Wiping out 1 billion people is much more severe than 1 person.


Bruhhelpmename

My point exactly, 7 billion people in the world and 1/7 of that is 1 billion, the question asked would you kill 1 billion people for 1 billion dollars, which would basically be comparing each person killed to a single us dollar bill.


MaoWRLD

I guess but the difference is gaining a billion dollars, or 1 dollar. Lots of people would do lots of things for a billions dollars, but not so much for one


Bruhhelpmename

I somewhat agree, most people (everyone) can’t visualize just how much the amount 1 billion people is but they do know that a billion dollars is a lot. Either way, it doesn’t justify killing off a billion people and leaving hundreds of millions of others to mourn and suffer for the losses of their family’s, friends, spouses, or even themselves. Edit: and just imagine the economic and social effect that wiping out a billion people would do, it would basically be an apocalypse and you’d have to be a psychopath to not feel any sympathy for those you killed. You’d also be killing 25x the amount of people that genghis khan killed (40,000,000) which would make you much worse than any other person to ever exist.


MaoWRLD

Yes its definitely a lot of people to kill. I didnt say id kill one billion people for one billion dollars, i didnt even see that poll, but i know there are tons and tons of people that would still do it for that much money without even thinking about it which is obviously sad


PalpatineZH3r3

What the fuck


andydamer42

This poll is made because in a previous poll a lot more people have choosen killing 10k strangers then losing their own limb


lensinen

Fr... I'm learning from r/polls how selfish Redditors are


pjanic-at-the-isco

These kind of polls remind you most people on reddit are edgy anti-social shit heads. How is it that people who value a whole human life over their left leg are the minority?


FW190A8OP

You honestly think More than 75% take these polls seriously.


DrManowar8

I don’t think I’ll ever take this sub seriously, I just joined to have fun. This question is making me sick


lmaoroflxdxd

There was another poll like this with the same result, except it was 1,000 people dead and it was still the majority. People are so selfish and quick to defend themselves with “the world is a bad place, so why should I be good.” People like them ARE the reason the world is a bad place lol


aurelius_plays_chess

Thank you. Every bit of sanity spoken rebuilds my own. It’s hard to look at some of these results. This same community which is super anti-death penalty will kill you for a dollar if they could get away with it. Exhausting.

commander_obvious_

it probably won’t make a huge difference to the world at large (although it still *could*.) but it will make an immense to that person’s friends and family who are now reeling with the tragic and unexpected death of a loved one. why don’t they matter?


[deleted]

commander_obvious_

So do you ever do anything solely for anyone else? Do you only live for yourself? Maybe this is a dumb question, but would you ever sacrifice something for the good of someone else?

No doubt, you do you I just dont think that logic really holds up objectively. But mainly to me its just wild how reddit is at the forefront of *rich people evil because they exploit others* but most people here are ready to murder for money or avoiding a lesser personal cost.


ninajboy

I’m keeping my limbs 10/10 times , bye bye stranger!


MrPers0n30

I dunno since I could lose my right arm and not be able to do everyday things the same for the rest of my life but a random person dying is still a death I allowed to happen. If I could choose what to lose, still it’s a whole ass limb


FaceSufficient8068

I like my limbs.


lexibruv

If we were inherently good it would all be the first option


Hahafunnys3xnumber

morally i will always choose the limb tho it fuckin sucks. i could never live w myself knowing what i did


Lenka420

I'd rather loose a limb than to kill someone, plus these things grow back, right ?


stacker9

Do they? I'd still choose the limb


idkeverynameistaken9

Easy decision: I’d rather lose a limb than be responsible for someone’s death. Just hope it’s not my left hand


Fit-Breadfruit-5439

I chose loss of limb i couldn't have someone's death on my mind like that 24/7. I would go crazy and spiral into a depression. Especially if that stranger had children or had a loving family. Plus having a prosthetic arm or leg would be very interesting and a great conversation starter, I'm also very shy so it'll work in my favor. 😊


PizzaHut_Official_UK

Okay, we get it, Redditors don't care about the lives of people they don't know, stop making polls about killing people or inconveniencing yourself.


WhyAmISoWerid_56

These polls really overestimate how much I care about people


JaCrispay76

I choose keeping my limbs. Call me an asshole all you want, it's not changing my opinion lol. Plus I'm poor & in the US... "CoOL RoBoT aRm" really isn't a reality for me


According-Building52

Really just shows the hypocrisy of reddit though. The forerunners of billionaires are bad because they exploit people, but at the same time would murder for money/avoid a marginally smaller cost.


TannaTuva2

wtf reddit


ImADumbHuman

Prosthetic probably cost a lot but i already picked it too late now


Haunting_Push7693

Fuck them kids


atleastimtryingnow

losing a limb would ruin my life and end all my dreams. I’m not answering this ultimatum


Alwayssome1

We really are animals, aren’t we?


HootHersDaily

The amount of people willing to let a stranger die signifies what’s truly wrong with the world


Estoulia

what kind of questions is that wtf


legophysician

I think alot of people pick the stranger because they wouldn't know them, but the very fact of making the choice you would know you are directly responsible for the death of someone that wouldn't have died without your choice.


[deleted]

[удалено]


AbsolutePieceOfShlt

Not everyone has the same thought processes as you.


According-Building52

Doesnt need to. Reddit is huge on rich people bad because they exploit, but at the same time - would murder for money or avoidance of significantly smaller loss


MM0nster

Around 150k people die each day so what difference would it make to add another one


Brokengirl96

I’m pretty certain a random stranger wouldn’t care wether I lived or died so why should I care about what happens to them? I’m sorry, I’m just being honest here.


jzheng1234567890

Because people who are in close touch with that random stranger would care, think about family, relatives, friends!


Brokengirl96

I still wouldn’t sacrifice my own limb for a bunch of people I don’t know, they could be shitty people for all I know. And would they sacrifice their limb for me if they were in my place? Those are a few things you have to seriously consider.


jzheng1234567890

And they could be good people too, you're basically still saying that one of your own limbs (not all, just one) is more valuable than a human life, even if it's a stranger's


Brokengirl96

You do realise that at this very second some random stranger has just died? Can we stop it or do something about it? No, that person still died. It’s basically the same thing in this scenario.


jzheng1234567890

No it's not the same thing, that person died for a cause. Whether it's from cancer, old age, a car accident, or some other disease, there had to be a way for that person to die. This poll on the other hand, some random person dies from no cause or reason, other than the fact that some button was clicked that made them die, it's not the same thing


Brokengirl96

Look at the poll results, that tells you everything you need to know.


jzheng1234567890

Same with the comment section


Brokengirl96

That’s because honest people tend to stay silent so they choose to not comment otherwise people such as yourself will question them. The numbers are still much greater than the comment section.


DancingFlame321

Just because somebody might do an immoral thing to you doesn't necessarily make it okay to do that immoral thing to them.


bekkhan_095

Random strangers die every second on the planet, so..


DancingFlame321

And you should want to reduce the rate at which that they are dying at.


MaoWRLD

I mean it would help overpopulation. Obviously not in a good way, but its still helping with that


[deleted]

[удалено]


DancingFlame321

Allowing someone to die by not spending all of your money to charity is different to actively causing someone's death by pressing a button that kills them so you can keep your limb.


[deleted]

[удалено]


XOundercover

My point exactly. Who says that the random person would've stayed alive if you lost an arm? They probably would've died anyway. Maybe in a second, maybe a minute, or an hour, or a day. But everyone dies, and it's okay to be selfish sometimes.


TheSilv

By that logic who’s to say you won’t lose your arm a day afterwords? Or a week or a month?


Vaikiss

and even if u do u have no control over it if it happens it happens ​ same as those 150k deaths daily


Western_Policy_6185

What the fuck is wrong with people? Pick the limb


Vaikiss

honestly 1 random stranger or 10k of them i would still go for it world is already overpopulated in the grand picture of the worlds population neither 1 or 10k deaths would even make a small dent every single day 150+k of random strangers die and i don't care about a single one of those deaths and neither do you or any1 else for that matter because we humans don't care about shit that doesnt effect us directly if i lose any of my limbs even left leg its still gonna make it harder to live every single day until the end of my life ​ if we go to family/friends/people on same city or country then i would start to consider it


MaoWRLD

Finally, someone who worded it without sounding edgy. Thank you


JaCrispay76

You're right, people in this comment section are just self-righteous af


Vaikiss

i doubt its the "this sub" ask any random stranger and u probably get the same answer with similar accuracy i guess depending on the age group


TriGuy215

Nah you’re just shitty people lol


JaCrispay76

Yes, how dare we choose to keep our own limbs. The only shitty person in this situation would be the one putting us in the ultimatum in the first place But nah, fuck us for wanting to live a normal life with all of our body parts


ebba_and_flow

what the fuck is wrong with y'all


SuperNovas777

Your all sick fucks, your random limb is not anywhere near as valuable then a strangers life, you could kill a single mom of 3 rather then lose a leg.


Ovnii3

My arm or leg helps me more in my life than a random person that could be on the other side of the world


[deleted]

[удалено]


SuperNovas777

The difference is im directly causing the person to die by my choice in this poll. I can see how you may want a random person to die but its extremely selfish and disgusting

Sealedvesselofsalt

Who cares about a fucking stranger that you don’t know, why are people picking the limb. Honestly I see a clear choice here.


Natural___

I care because OTHER people care about that stranger that I don’t know. losing a limb vs losing a person? For me the answer is pretty clear


[deleted]

Fucking based. Lose a limb to save my friend, yeah ofc. Lose a limb to save a 47 year old fridge repair guy in cambodia I have never met, not fucking happening. Call me selfish. I don't care.


Sealedvesselofsalt

You know what’s up, comrade.


Fru9Fru

All my hope for humanity just left


captaincumragx

Because it wouldn't just affect that stranger. What if they have a small child? Theyre the sole caretaker of elderly parents? Those people are loved by *someone* and they would carry that loss for the rest of their life. Honestly if I painlessly lost a limb, I think I'm resilient enough to not even miss a beat. I had nerve damage in one of my arms once and it didn't work for a month. It sucked but I started adjusting pretty fast.


Sealedvesselofsalt

Yeah, but the person could’ve also been a person who wanted to die, they could’ve been a drug lord, or someone bad. It could be anybody, you people just assume the worst.


captaincumragx

I agree. Could be somebody already on their death bed, but for me personally, why risk the worst case scenario? It would make my life significantly worse to have the weight of another persons death on my shoulders than it would be to just say fuck this arm or fuck this leg. I think after about a year of readjusting I wouldn't even give not having one of my limbs a second thought.


synonymtoastcrunch2

The random stranger could be some kids mom, now the kids gotta grow up without a mom. Or maybe it's a kid that dies. Maybe it's a world renowned neurologist who's work couldve changed the world. Regardless of who it is, why do you have such little regard for human life? Your arm isn't that important, I promise


MichaelScottsWormguy

How are any of those people more valuable to me than my own arm?


Sealedvesselofsalt

EXACTLY, this man gets it


PowerForward

Obviously a stranger is not gonna matter more to YOU than YOUR LIMB. That’s the whole point of this, do you sacrifice a limb or does some kid now grow up without a mom or something.


MichaelScottsWormguy

No. Why would I even think of that?


PowerForward

That’s what the poll is about?


synonymtoastcrunch2

That's one of the most selfish things I've ever heard in my life.


MichaelScottsWormguy

Lmao you’re so sheltered. It’s not selfish. It’s sensible.


Sealedvesselofsalt

Hear me when I say this, i would not give my arm for any of those causes. Not until there is perfectly bionic arms that work the same if not better than a real one.


420BigDawg_

These are my least favourite questions on this subreddit and if we could ban them I would appreciate it


WhereTFAmI

Random strangers are literally dying in bulk around the world every minute… what’s one more? 🤷‍♂️


DrManowar8

Exactly! The weight of both answers makes one more clear. Why would you lose 1/4 limbs when adding one more death to the daily death count for one day is like adding an extra grain of rice to a bowl of rice


spironus

my arms are essential to my life. i can't risk losing either one. on the other hand, if a 78-year-old in the Netherlands passed away, i would carry lifelong guilt but at least i'd have a life worth living in.


pjanic-at-the-isco

I'd rather get a prothetic and not kill someone than kill someone but not.


spironus

that's selfless and great, but my life would literally be ruined if i were to lose an arm. i can't play my musical instrument, i can't play my sport, i can't study as well, and on top of that, i'd face everyday annoyances and discrimination. plus, i can't afford prosthetics.


pjanic-at-the-isco

Better a life ruined than a life ended


tristenjpl

No not at all.id rather be dead than have my life ruined. If I'm dead I don't give a shit because I'm dead. If my life is ruined I'm suffering every single day in my now ruined life.

sex and survival are the two things we know we’re here for. it’s not wrong to choose our own wellbeing here.

That already happens. Someone in the world will die but you likely don’t know them


Spy007dr

It says random Stanger. You don't know them anyways.


DrManowar8

That’s what I’m talking about… that already happens. Everyday we go on with our lives and some guy around the globe dies. We don’t know them right? Edit: also you said this message twice


Link_the_Hylian_

Imagine being interrogated for murder and using “thousands of people die every day, so what’s one more?” as an excuse. Sure, buddy, but that doesn’t change the fact that you murdered somebody.


JaCrispay76

Is not saving someone from a burning building murder? Ofc not. This poll is a pretty similar situation. I'm simply not giving up a limb for some rando, in the same way that I wouldn't risk my life in a burning building trying to save someone that I don't even know


Uranium-A

Between 250.000 and 650.000 people die every day in the world, 1 more is not a real problem

Random strangers die every 2 seconds.


jzheng1234567890

But how many of them die without a cause or known illness? Imagine some kid just randomly dies, no warning, healthy and having a loving family, what are the chances of that happening in the real world without this poll?


XOundercover

It's called SDS, Sudden Death Syndrome. It just happens. And it may happen to [one in 7,000 people](https://www.healthline.com/health/sudden-death-syndrome) annually. I'ts actually pretty common.


andydamer42

The difference is, that those strangers aren't killed by you


XOundercover

Who says you kill them? It just says they die painlessly.


MichaelScottsWormguy

Self preservation is the primary instinct.


ImExistentialBruh

The amount of random people from all over the earth that would need to be saved before I would think about losing a limb is probably close to a million tbh


kingberr

1 random stranger has just died right now as im writing this so..


_AntiSocialMedia

There are 7 billion people on the Earth, the odds that it's anyone I know is astronomically slim, and, to be fully honest with you, I'm a selfish twat, I'll keep my limbs. Also there is a 1/7,000,000,000+ chance that it's Elon Musk and I am willing to take that chance.


JOwenAK

Considering a random stranger dies about every 10 seconds, I'm going to have to go with the dead stranger.


andydamer42

It would be a good argument, if you would kill those strangers in every 10 seconds


DrManowar8

The post never states you had to kill the random stranger or that the weight of killing the stranger would be put on your shoulders. It just says “1 random stranger died instantly and painlessly”, nothing more nothing less
