"Imagine you are in a forest. It’s dark and quiet and you cannot remember at all why you are there. You want to get out of there as soon as possible but suddenly you hear some howling nearby. A creature’s running towards you looking for something, and you sit still. You don’t move because you don’t want to be noticed. Then, all of a sudden out of the darkness a wolf appears just next to you, followed by another one, and another one. They start circling you. What do you do? "
