    Would you try to stop a terroist hijacking your plane?

    Would you try to stop a terroist hijacking your plane? By eg. tackling him, or kickin' him where it really hurts . I think of myself as the type of person who would make an attempt of stopping it, but if I was in the actual situation, I dont know how brave I'd really be...but I voted yes anyway becuase I would would want to do everything I could.

    I am still alive :D

    If I knew he or she was gonna crash the plane yes......and maybe in another situation yes......but remember there's plenty at times so the other might get you from behind and kill you.

    the hijackers have four choices in how they die,

    1. Bruce Lee Jeet Kune Do style(lots of quick death).
    2. Black Belt Jones Kung Fu style(lots of attitude).
    3. Chow Yun Fat/John Woo Massive Gun Fightout style(lots of bullets/blood/ crazy stunts unlimited ammo).
    4. Or i could melt their tiny brains with my mental powers.

    Look at all these Terry Toughguys here.... Truth is, if you fit the standard profile of most people on this board, you'll crap yourself. You can't say what you're going to do in a situation like that unless you're actually there. I'd imagine answers would be different if there was actually a gun to your head instead of a keyboard at your fingertips.

    It's unfulfilled dreams that keep you alive.

    Exactly - that's why I think the early responses are funny.

    If I knew he or she was gonna crash the plane and I knew I was gonna die either way, might as well do something.

    But if you thought there was a great chance you would get shot in the head trying to do it, would you? I'm being serious - I'm not looking for "I'd do it, since it's the right thing and I want to be a hero".

    it depends on the circumstances
    if theres a guy with a knife just get some other people to do it with you
    if theres two guys with knives then get more people
    if theres a guy with a gun, you'd feel totally different about try to attack the hijackers

    otherwise i'd go
    hya hawo yeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeyeye bang chop chop ko ayyyounngggg hiyaaaaaaa

    and then everyone would be saved

    At this moment and from behind my PC I would say yes, but I don't know how I would react when it was for real.
