There are two boats, 300 people on one, 200 on the other.
Both boats are sinking and the one holding 200 people are forcing you to fix their boat before the other, what should you do?
Well the answer is easy!
Just kill all 200 to get back to saving the 300!
So long fuckers!
And that turned out fucking great. His only mistakes in that timeline was to unwittingly seal away Kuro for ten years and adopt some ginger kid that the series would be better off without.
I don't care if you say it's impossible, I'll do it.
Get the 200 on the fucking lifeboats that are obliged to have in ships this size and the rest that can't get in the lifeboats are transported to the other boat by rope bridges.
Then fix the current one and get 100 more people to get on this one, and possibly more if you just take light people like kids, and possibly everyone if you just dump all the unnecessary shit off the boat, it's only another 200 persons worth of weight
Yup he and her killed every single one of them somehow. But what I don't understand is why that faggot Shirou is in the series yet Tohsoka Sakura isn't. By logic there should be no fire, Shirou should be with his real family and without a grail to fight over Tokiomi wouldn't be giving away Sakura to doctor worm rape thus she'd be allowed to say with her sister and have sexy black hair. Such shoddy writing.
Well if the boat with 200 people on it are forcing you, that means you are already on it, correct?
To get to the boat with 300 people on it, it will take time. What if both boats sink by the time you get to the boat with more people?
It feels like an editorial mandate. Shirou doesn't really add much to the series by being adopted into the same family again, and he goes ignored for the most part, but he's there just the same. As for Sakura's status, she may be studying overseas just like Rin for all I know. Or maybe she's with the Matou anyway – I'm not sure if she'd been given up for adoption by the point the timelines diverge.
Consider the problem of the two famous Carpathian army generals, Prince Vlad and Prince Nicolae, who must simultaneously attack the Ruthenian army on two different flanks to have any chance of success. If either attacks alone, then the Ruthenian forces will defeat them easily, so it is highly important for the princes to coordinate their strike. But on the day of the attack, the two princes have positioned their armies on different hills, miles apart. They can only communicate by sending messengers, who take half an hour to cross the difficult and perilous terrain between the hills, which the princes suspect has been penetrated by Ruthenian advance scouts.
In the morning, Vlad, the senior of the two, sends a messenger to Nicolae with the instruction to attack at noon, and a request to send an acknowledgement. Since he cannot be sure that the messenger will get there, his message makes clear that the attack will only go ahead if the acknowledgement is received. Luckily, his messenger completes the journey and delivers the message to Nicolae. Nicolae sends him back with a message of acknowledgement, but also a request to acknowledge his acknowledgement, since he cannot be sure that Vlad knows he received the original message unless his acknowledgement is also acknowledged...
How many messengers sending acknowledgements are required for both generals to be logically 100% sure that both sides will in fact attack at noon?
I'd rather see only one person die in front of me than seeing 5 dying in front of me while regretting that I could have done something.
Also, there is no complete correct answer to this. This is a commonly known dilemma everybody gotta answer for himself. You might as well be a "murderer" because you didn't do anything. "Not my fault" doesn't apply here because you know you could have saved them.
>Yup he and her killed every single one of them somehow.
There weren't that many of them anyway, right? Not true Einzberns anyway, just a bunch of homunculi. Because they specialized in alchemy, they were always considered to be among the weaker magi in terms of individual combat ability.
c will go by this logic
he sees b wearing a white hat.
if the person behind him sees that he (c) is also wearing a white hat, the person behind hi, would have shouted black already. Since d will see two white hats already.
so c will conclude that d is not responding so that means that he (c) is wearing a black hat.
If they're all strangers I'll kill the one. If the one person is my wife, brother, etc and the others are strangers I'll do nothing. I would have a dilemma if it was headed towards my loved one and I had to move it to kill five people though.
Philosophical problems are morally wrong because they waste valuable human intellectual effort, which is a finite and scarce quantity, and worse, cause a person, especially under the age of ~25-27, neuropathways to adapt towards worrying about meaningless philosophical problems, instead of using said energy towards solving actual problems and human suffering.
2 people are about to kill you. You see Kiritsugu and yell at him to save you.
So, what would he do?
>Philosophical problems are morally wrong because they waste valuable human intellectual effort
That means that /a/ is worse than like ten Hitlers given how much stupid shit we waste our time on here
What happens if the boat carrying 200 people comprised of doctors, nurses and various other medical professionals, while the boat carrying 300 people composed of criminals who are rapists, murderers and child molesters? Surely you don't believe quantity is the sole determinate factor of who gets to live. This is why Kerry's beliefs are terrible. He believes saving the most lives matter more than the quality of the lives he's judging.
>Tokiomi wouldn't be giving away Sakura to doctor worm rape
This had nothing to do with the grail, Tokiomi would had given Sakura away anyway, he had two mage daughters and only one crest, meanwhile his neighbor had a crest but no mage. The real question is why on earth are the Matous living in Fuyuki.
Ah, now that's something that makes sense.
>this is what Kerry actually believes
a can't see shit
b can't see shit
c can see b's hat
d can see b and c's hat.
from d's perspective he'll either see
if two black or two white, d would have already figured out the color of his hat and shouted the correct answer. since he hasn't answered then b and c have different colored hats.
because c see's b having a white colored hat he will correctly conclude that he is wearing a black hat since d has not given an answer.
/a/. In youth you must have wanted to become a hero. You desired it more than anything else.
Am I wrong?
In this situation, I would imagine Kiritsugu would take down your attackers without killing them.
taiga said kiritsugu tried to do his best for people in the time she knew him.
Which begs the question of exactly where Sella and Leysritt came from.
In the original timeline they were created by Illya and were only two years old.
Obviously that would be impossible in Prisma Illya.
If they were created by Acht in Prisma Illya and were part of the regular Einzbern maid force how the hell did they escape Kiritsugu's slaughter? You'd figure Kiritsugu would have to fight through the homunculi before he got to the real Einzberns (... was Acht the only remaining non-homunculus?) Were they Iri's maids in this continuity and sided with her in the ensuing conflict against the rest of the Einzberns?
>taiga said kiritsugu tried to do his best for people in the time she knew him.
This was also after he dropped his ideals. At that point he was just trying to help people when he could, there was no idealistic backing behind it.
Who is this
The timeline of Prisma Illya is very inconsistent with the FSN one. For one, Illya is just 10 despite being older than Shirou in FSN. As for Sella and Leysritt, if you really need an explanation, just say that the two were created by Iris with the same templates Illya used in FSN.
This. If Kerry was tasked with the decision of sparing Africa or Europe, he would probably select Africa based solely on population. However, everyone knows Europe contributes far more to the world in terms of technological development, scientific research, charities and medical breakthroughs.
Meanwhile, Africa commonly suffers from overpopulation, severe wars, harsh famines and extreme poverty, issues rarely seen in Europe. You would have to be blind to spare Africa over Europe, but Kerry’s irrational morality forces him to choose the unworthy continent over the more valuable one.
If Kerry desires to play God, he should know that not all lives are equal in value and some are more worthy of saving than others.
Don't be ridiculous. Commie named themselves after the Red Man.
The worst thing that TM have ever done is confirm that Shiki survives Akiha's true ending. I'm quoting from the wiki here, but if you don't believe me then read it yourself.
'In "A Story for the Evening", a 'sequel' scenario to Akiha's True Ending from Kagetsu Tohya, at the end of the scenario Akiha receives a letter from Ciel that reveals that Shiki did infact survive.'
The ending was ambiguous and romantic and beautiful and Nasu took that beauty and raped it.
I don't even fucking understand how he could have survived, and it doesn't even tell you the details.
So why the FUCK does Irisviel have working reproductive organs anyways? Never in a million years would Acht have thought of her getting married to the magus killer they hired and popping out a kid.
Even if Acht wanted to whore her out for various reasons he could've just installed a fleshlight in her and called it a day rather than going through the whole trouble of giving her a working womb.
>not wanting Akiha to be with her nii-san
Kerry probably would choose Africa, given his overly simplistic and childish mindset.
Archer's more forward-thinking though. He understands the value of human advancement, whereas Kerry's ideals are even more flawed than the Harweys'.
No, the worst thing TM has ever done is have Akiha survive Kohaku True.
Ruined the entire route. It was a much bigger asspull than Shirou surviving HF True yet people complain about that one way more. What makes it even worse is how Hisui True/Good are pretty melancholic and bittersweet, so Kohaku True just looks so fucking fake in comparison.
Acht isn't the most intelligent fellow
I think most people wouldn't consciously think about "ideals" when making choices the way fictional characters do, or spend time thinking about ideals in and of themselves. But most people still have principles of some sort.
I don't understand something, if Archer was giving that whole speech of not living by an ideal of justice which goes against what Kerry viewed,
why did he let Caster live with her absorbing the mana of so many people.
It seems hypocritical
>we need a Master for the 5th grail war
>lets send in the lesser grail herself
>surely we'll be able to win the grail war after she keels over and turns into the grail at the final stages of the war
Am I misunderstanding this or is Acht actually this retarded? Who was going to regain the Third Magic after Illya dies?
If God exists, why does anyone need the Root?
>Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me
Glorifying anything that's not God is a sin.
>If God exists, why does anyone need the Root?
Because God literally does not give a shit about anybody else other than itself because it is complete by itself.
He must be senile.
>Am I misunderstanding this or is Acht actually this retarded? Who was going to regain the Third Magic after Illya dies?
Sella. That's what the maids were there for.
According to CM3, Ilya was expected to stop functioning as a person after the 4th or 5th Servant croaked and the maids would handle shit from there on out.
Because IF the God of Abraham exists in the Nasuverse, and we don't know that for sure (though it is likely), then he is not the god that created the world, and thus is a pretender and a usurper.
The ACTUAL creator god in the Nasuverse doesn't give a shit about his creation, because he is perfect and thus has no desires. He's like Azathoth, just less destructive.
I throw myself in front of the train while yelling "SEIBAH!"
My body is torn to shreds and my insides spill across the track.
My slippery entrails cause the trolley to derail and careen off to the side, saving all six people.
I wake up perfectly fine the next day to Saber's incessant callings of "SHIROU!"
Tohsaka comments how nobody should've been able to survive that.
Wait, was the plan for Liz to become the dress of heaven and Sella to wear it?
Because Illya becoming the grail would sort of prevent her from doing it. It was only because of a set of highly unlikely coincidences involving another fucking grail in HF that she was able to do so.
Bandai Entertainment was the shit. If they were still around and had gotten fate they would've dubbed the drama cds. I still have my LE Geass boxes with the drama cds dubbed. Shit's based.
>Nasu couldn't stand such a sad ending with no happy counterpart so he changed it. Thanks Nasu.
what if Kouki wrote a type-moon?
The Einzebern have hundreds of Homunculus that look about the same and wear the same costume. The ones Ilya left to the grail war with aren't anything special, aside from having battle capability to stand up to weak servants.
When Iriesviel went to the grail war, she took about ten sameish looking Homuncules as helpers.
The lesser models don't show as much personality generally, but it's still there. All the Einzebern does all day is sit around making fake people to do everything for him all day.
>. I'm quoting from the wiki here, but if you don't believe me then read it yourself.
>"I haven't read Kagetsu and none of you have either because you're just as secondary as me, but this is something I just read and am offended. How could this happen in this story that I didn't even read properly, and it was shown that Shiki was still alive in that ending when Akiha picked up the knife rather than it being a retcon at all, not that I'll ever acknowledge this because I wanted to see it in a different way when i read it and that different way has to be 100% right".
>The ones Ilya left to the grail war with aren't anything special
That's extremely untrue.
Liz was a substandard potential Grail vessel who got repurposed into the Dress of Heaven. She's also a halfway decent combatant.
Sella's a normal Einzbern homunculus, though. Albeit an extremely efficient one.
I wanted to, but then I realized that individual standout heroes probably aren't the way to go about it.
Don't get me wrong, they're great but in the long run what would really make a difference is everyone acting in tandem to make the world a better place.
Didn't she kill a few buildingfuls of people before figuring out the optimal drain rate? And the latest episode said she was draining souls rather than mana from nonmages.
>And the latest episode said she was draining souls rather than mana from nonmages.
Nonmages don't HAVE magical energy beyond their lifeforce, Od. And if memory serves, that's kinda sorta the same thing as your soul.
And I don't think she killed them, just drained them into a coma.
