speaking of trainwrecks

i was just moving on to the trolley problem.
like many thought experiments, it leaves out all sorts of details so it doesn't actually, can't actually, correspond to any real event or decision. the answer to the question is therefore of no value, and the experiment itself merely a springboard to discussion of real questions.
do we really need a thought experiment to remind us that the the value of human life resists a simple calculus?
