Aliens place you on the bottom center of a large cylindrical aquarium. Your hands and legs are tied together. The cylinder sits on a turntable, which is now turned off. Your captors are about to release you so that you will float to the surface to gasp for air as soon as possible. The captors ask you, "Do we turn the turntable on or leave it off before we release you?"

leave it up to them. if you open your mouth to answer you will drown. the question you are asked needs to have an answer you can nod or shake to!!

Well, if sadistic aliens like these exist, I think I would prefer to die.

Cliff: If you do not care, that is fine with me, but to announce to everyone as if saying that NOBODY cares it is a big problem. Do not go into the science category if you don't want Science.

true about the drowning thing, but it never said in the teaser how fast you are going, it might not matter, but what if its goin slower or faster?
