Now imagine you are locked in a shiny metal room from which there is no escape. The only two features in the room are a large conical steel spike mounted on the wall at eye level, and a pool of hot acid.
The acid is slowly rising, so that in a few hours it will fill the entire room. Your only escape is death.
Do you vigorously impale your brain, through your eye-sockets, upon the metal spike, or plunge with open arms into the powerful flesh-eating acid?
