Harmful Scenarios

1. Francis is writing a very important paper that is due tomorrow. Alex talks to him repeatedly and plays music loudly to distract Francis, even after Francis asks him to leave the room. Finally, in frustration, Francis punches Alex hard enough to bruise him badly. 
2. Peter sees a car coming straight at him. He knows the driver is trying to kill him. His only escape is to run behind a crowd, so the car will hit them instead of him. He runs behind the crowd, and the car hits three people before it stops. 
3. Beth has two young sons who often play very rudely, cursing at each other. After more than 3 hr of trying to control them, Beth finally hits them on their hands with a wooden ruler hard enough to make their hands bruise. 
4. Elaine and five other passengers are up in a hot air balloon with a big hole, so it is falling rapidly. The only way to prevent a life-threatening crash is to throw a passenger overboard. Elaine pushes out the heaviest passenger, who hits the ground hard and breaks his legs. 
5. Susan owns a small camera store and lives in an apartment above it. One evening she hears something in the store. When she goes downstairs, she sees someone stealing her cameras. She pulls her gun and shoots the thief in the back before he can leave. 
6. After their ship sinks, Elmer and 12 other passengers are in an overcrowded lifeboat that is about to sink. The only way to keep it afloat is to force two passengers overboard. After drawing lots Elmer pushes out two passengers, who soon drown. 
7. Jen is walking upstairs to class with her friend Tom who is teasing her relentlessly. Jen asks Tom to stop, but he keeps teasing her and playfully pushes her. Jen pushes him back hard, which knocks him down the stairs. Tom breaks his arm in the fall. 
8. Ferdinand lives alone in the country. Late one night, he hears some noises in his living room. He runs downstairs with his gun and sees an intruder wearing a ski mask across the room. Without warning, he shoots and kills the intruder. 
9. Allen sees an assassin in a crowd of people aiming at him. To protect himself, he shoots at the assassin with both barrels of a double barreled shotgun that he just brought back from a hunting trip. He hits the assassin and a bystander in the crowd. 
10. Laura is in a library with her young daughter, Mandy, who is being disruptive. Laura tries to reason with Mandy and warns her several times, but Mandy keeps making noise. When a librarian tells them to leave, Laura forcefully drags Mandy out by the arm, hurting her. 
11. Mike has a few beers at a party. His friend, Alice, tells him that he's too drunk to drive. Mike still insists on driving home, so Alice hits him to make him drop his car keys. Mike falls and bangs his head, causing a concussion. 
12. Matthew and Nick get into a heated argument. Nick suggests they settle it by a fistfight. Matthew is reluctant, but Nick insists, so Matthew finally agrees. Matthew is much bigger and stronger, so he quickly wins by punching Nick in the side, breaking two ribs. 
13. Kim and Olivia have an argument. Olivia suggests that they resolve their dispute by wrestling, although she knows Kim is on a wrestling team. Kim agrees and quickly wins with a special move she learned from her wrestling coach. In the process, she badly dislocates Olivia's shoulder. 
14. Greg is driving when he sees another car out of control heading directly toward an unsuspecting pedestrian. The pedestrian can't get out of the way, so Greg slams his car into the other car, saving the pedestrian, but paralyzing the driver of the other car.
