Here is an interesting problem. What would you do if you were
President and had to make a choice?
You are the President of the United States. Scientists have discovered a meteor that is
headed towards the earth. They have calculated that it will strike France in 2 days, at
approximately 2:30 A.M. The meteor is large enough to completely wipe France from the face
of the earth forever.
France and the United Nations have requested that the United States send all available
ships and aircraft to help evacuate the country. Among the ships and planes you could be
sending are many that are being used to fight the war on terror overseas.
As the President, you must decide: Do you...
A) Stay up late on the night of the impact to watch the coverage live?
B) Tape it and watch it in the morning?
