This poll is based on a life situation you will likely never find yourself in, but isn't it fun to ponder who you would take and why (comments)?

Periodically, we're looking to present questions like this to you. If you have a scenario and person in mind, let us know and maybe we'll feature it next time.

Poll idea inspired by Colin Dodd, a writer at Red Hat.
