Familiar with that term? Or did you just checked your dictionary for definitions?
If any of you look for the meaning in the dictionary, conundrum [kuh–nuhn-druh m] means anything that puzzles or riddle. Therefore, if the word is taken literally, it will lead to wordplay, pun, riddle or anything that triggers us to think about answering or fixing the flouted rules. An instance of famous conundrum is the Sphinx riddle.
What is the creature that walks on four legs in the morning, two legs at noon and three legs in the evening?
Which was answered by Oedipus during his journey. Legend said that ever since the riddle was solved by Oedipus, Sphinx met his death and stop devouring the explorers who passed by.
Though it literal meaning has a very close definition to riddle, conundrum has another definition as a moral dilemma or difficult situation that people might face in their life. These kinds of conundrum are known as moral and practical conundrum. The two types include the absence of deciding whether something is right or wrong and the difficulties in choosing which one is better than another respectively. This post, will deliver some possible moral and practical conundrums that you might have or might not have ever thought before with some opinions from an ENTP.
Everyone must be familiar with the tale of a guy who robs from the rich and then spreads the loots to the poor people. Imagine if this Robin’Hood guy was one of your friends and you figured out what he always did. What would your action be? Turn him or her to the authorities? Let him or her be for the treasures are distributed to the unfortunate ones? You might argue for this but I have my point of view.
Stealing, robbing or anything similar are obviously breaking the law.However in this case, the robber does not enjoy the loot he’s obtained but instead, he gives it to the ones who need it. I will say that I will let him be for awhile, warn him later and then if he refuses to stop, I will wait for the time to take a serious action once he starts to go completely evil. You have to keep in mind that most people who do heroic action by breaking the law may die as a hero or live long enough to turn into a bad guy
It will be cruel to say thanks to everyone who participated in world war one and two but wait a minute, I said that as a person who lives in 21st century. Imagine living in the years of 1920s to 1940s, you would curse a lot and feel the insecurity in every minute of your life. Surely I would either if I imagine how horrible living next to battle field, preparing to evacuate to the nearest bunker or isolated mountain. That’s how it was back then, but how about now? Think as a person from this generation. Did we learn something from it? Yes we do. Did lots of us get something from it? Yes we DO. Now you want to revise my grammar for answering past questions in present form. No you can’t, because what we got and what we learned back then, are eternal. Some countries seized their independence, some others learned that war is a waste and peace should be maintained, making them more powerful and advanced than before. Without mentioning those countries, I would like to salute the people from the past and be grateful as the person from the present.
You reap what you sow. The proverb is surely relevant to this controversial punishment. It should be noticed that death sentence is only enacted to they who commit serious crimes such as assassination, mass murder, massive illegal drugs distribution, and so forth.the impact of death sentence is very influential not only to the suspect who will obviously lose his life but also to the public for it might spread the fear of doing such criminal actions that may lead him to horrifying punishment. Some people find death sentence is unfair since it gives no chance for the suspect to amend his mistake in the past, turning him from a suspect into another victim while some others see the punishment is just and acceptable. However, again, what if a close friend of yours has committed an assassination that made him sentenced to death. Would you defend your dearest one or stand by the justice?
Though many people think such kind of punishment is barbaric and ruthless, I would say that death sentence, to whom in may be applied, is fair enough since the punishment is only imposed to serious and worrisome criminals who commit particularly serious crime. The authority will not have any right to impose death sentence on a robber who snatch money from the cashier machine in Seven Eleven. Thus, as long as it is on track and not rashly implemented, death sentence is fine.
We all know what happened at the end of the movie. Jack Dawson died sacrificing himself to let Rose survived. Cheesy, you may have said, but for some people, they prefer to die rather than seeing their loved one dies. How about you? Have you ever imagine that Jack is you, and Rose is your lover. You guys are on a very amusing trip when suddenly a fatal accident occur. Giving you two options: You live but you have to let your lover dies, or vice versa, you die and the loved one lives. Will you save him or her by giving up your own life or leave her?
My view about lovers and death is quite different. I would like to have a question regarding to this: Imagine you are in a very settle and happy relationship. You get married and live even happier. Now the question is: would you die first leaving your lover in a very depressing lonesome and lost or you would let him or her dies before you so they do not need to feel the loneliness and the pain of losing loved one?
You may think that I am rude, but I won’t let the person that I share affection with and I care about to feel the fear of losing and lonely. It is okay for me if she dies leaving me behind.
You may have different opinions about those stuffs I shared. Cheers.
