How do you solve a problem like [stupid philosophy thought experiment]?

Assuming that person B has previously done nothing terribly bad to person A, how bad is it if person B stoves person A’s head in with a brick?

What if person A has raped person B’s daughter? What about if person A has statutorily raped person B’s daughter? What about if person A is Nick Griffin, and person B is a Jew? What about if person B has killed person A’s brother, but person A doesn’t realise?

I reckon thought experiments are pretty fucking stupid, having done a degree in them. But feel free to post your favourite ones here, and we can, err, investigate them fully without mocking you for being an idiot or anything.

    Oh I have a good one…

    Lets publish some inflammatory yet totally pointless cartoons insulting Islam in a Danish newspaper and see if it upsets the Muslims shall we?

    Who knows what the outcome will be?
