Feel free to answer any questions in here or to add your own, and for the sake of this thread, we'll define philosophical loosely. I'm not necessarily looking for high brow stuff. I'll start with this one. In the middle of the day, you are driving down a rural road, on which yours appears to be the only car. The road has one lane going in each direction with deep ditches on both sides of it. At a distance, you see the longest snake you've ever seen stretching across the entire road. You are driving slowly enough that you can easily stop before reaching the snake. Do you stop to allow the snake to cross the road or do you drive over it? If you decided to stop, how long are you willing to wait in the event that the snake decides to sun itself on the roadway?
