Pfft.  Me before any complete stranger.  Not because of me, but the impact my death would cause to my loved ones.

Why do the details matter? Maybe you have a gun to your head, maybe you are hanging from a cliff side. The question is simple: would you rather give up your life or directly cause the death of another? Each option is offensive to one's spirit, it's a matter of your personal disposition. Are you at peace enough to die or will you kill to live?
I'm both at peace enough to die and willing to kill to live.

I don't think everyone is as shitty of a person as you are.

Yeah. Basic human survival instinct is irrelevant and makes people inherently shitty.

Am I innocent, too? (I mean, I know I'm not, but does the person who set this up know?!)

In any case, I'd almost certainly choose the stranger. If it were someone I cared about, that's a horse of a different color.

Theres tons of evidence of survival instinct overruling everything even when people will only live for an extra few seconds.

If you put two people in a room and told them that only one person is allowed to leave then 9 times out of 10 they would fight.

I mean look at gladiators ffs.

The difference in this situation is that you have all the power. The other person isn't making the decision.
