Once when I fell off my bike I smashed the knuckles on the index and middle finger of my left hand. So I couldn't bend them for a while. You don't notice how many things you can't do with even two fingers on your left hand out of commission (I'm right-handed). Doing up buttons on your jacket, cutting your food with a knife and fork. When I drove my car, I could only wrap my pinky and ring finger around the steering wheel, the other two were sticking up like I was making a "V" for victory sign at anyone looking at me through the windshield.
Yeah, we so often need both hands to do so many things in our daily life that we don't even realise how important the other hand is.

That sounds really serious. Your dick classmate must've twisted it really hard.

You felt guilty about voting against me, right? To make up for it you'll have to tell me your secrets.

Trust me, you would feel guilty after knowing them.

I have many many things that I keep hidden. It's up to you to ask about anything in particular, then maybe you'll get an answer.
Why would I feel guilty after knowing them? This is just making me more and more curious. Tell meeee. Where do I even begin to ask? I need a rough idea of what it's about in order to draft some questions.

When it's guaranteed that somebody is going to die, I don't think anything is really 'right', is it?
Well, it's a question of doing something to save some people and killing one person as a result of your action versus doing absolutely nothing knowing that people will die. You know there's no liability under civil law if a passerby sees a drowning man and does nothing and the man dies? It makes sense legally but what the law allows isn't always what is moral...

The context in which this trolley thing was brought up was the question of whether it's right or permissible for the state to shoot down a hijacked plane carrying innocent passengers to avoid it crashing into another civilian building, 9/11-style. I think intuitively it's not right. But it's not an easy question.

Well the fact that he is fat will influence people. Just as it would if it was a dwarf, or a disabled person. We are more likely to sacrifice people who aren't normal.
Most people apparently aren't willing to sacrifice the fat man though. Okay, let's take the fatness out of the exmaple - you have to push another person onto the tracks to save the 5 people. I think it's even worse than the first scenario because your involvement in his death is more direct.

Oh, if only you could hear my voice, if only you could hear the tone. Then maybe you wouldn't need to ask such a question. I'm not answering this. I'm leaving it for you to decide.
You are very bad.
