If a safe boat can only takes 30 people and you already have 50 on it and then there are 1,000 people more in the freezing sea trying to climb up to your boat, what do you do?

Whacked everyone who try to climb up the boat?

What if the one who try to climb up is your husband? Whacked him too? Or whack the one trying to whack him?

What if you are in the water? Are you going to try to climb up the boat too (and being whacked) or will you say, “Let me die here so I won’t sink their boat. It is not ‘that’ cold anywhere.” When you are in deep pain, when you are struggling deeply, can you still think? Or maybe you will try to bribe the boat to let you in?
