You have to think outside of the box because if you actively do something you are libel for murder. So make a choice not in the question. Stop the trolley.

Some consoling words from Stephen Hawking to distraught One Direction fans 

"My advice to any heartbroken young girl is to pay attention to the study of theoretical physics because, one day, there may well be proof of multiple universes. It would not be beyond the realms of possibility that somewhere outside of our own universe lies another, different universe and, in that universe, Zayn is still in One Direction.

This girl may like to know that in another possible universe, she and Zayn are happily married."
Stephen Hawking appeared via hologram at the Sydney Opera House this weekend and he offered some surprisingly sweet words of comfort to Directioners.
