Trolleyology for the Two-Year-Old

We got a kick out of this two-year-old's solution to the Trolley Problem.

Well, we thought, we can play that game too! So we set up the train tracks with a Playmobil mermaid on the left track, and five assorted lego people and plastic soldiers on the right. Then we called William, our resident not-quite-three-year-old, and asked him what he should do. Without hesitation he grabbed the train, zoomed it down to the junction, jumped the tracks, and continued driving it straight across the floor.

And that's about as seriously as we need to take the Trolley problem.
