Button Button

You are naked inside a room with a green force field instead of one wall, and two closed doors on two adjacent walls. Although at the moment it keeps you captive, the force field could lead to freedom. Each doors leads into one smaller room. Behind the red door is a cloned and hungry Velociraptor. You can hear her scratching and hitting the door. She has mutated as she is now tall as a tall man. Behind the yellow door is just a goat. The doors and the force field are controlled by control panel in the middle of the room. There is also the LED bulb on the ceiling, but it’s out of reach. The bulb is turned on.

The panel has plastic buttons in different colors and one button made out of silver. If you press the red button, two things will happen. First, the red door will open. Second, the force field will recognize you as a human 7 seconds later, and you’ll be able to pass through it. At no time would the Velociraptor be able to pass through the force field. If you press the silver button, you’ll be able to pass through the force field from that moment on. But there is a highly advanced resonant transformer circuit inside the panel and it's connected to the silver button. So the very moment you press it, current of extremely high voltage will electrocute you, most probably killing you on the spot. If you press the bicolor yellow/red button, both doors will open, and 20 seconds later you’ll be able to pass safely through the force field. Again, Velociraptor cannot pass through the force field.

Which button would you press and why?

Since it said you are inside a room with a force field, and two walls with closed doors, I would ignore all the buttons and simply walk away. If there's a room with only 3 walls that means the other wall is non-existent, right?
 It's a bit hard to ignore a gaping hole on the other side of the room...

Murder mystery game #4 :

A man was shot to death while in his car. There was no powder marks on his clothing, which indicated that the gunman was outside the car. However, all the windows were up and the doors locked. After a close inspection was made, the only bullet-holes discovered were on the man's body. How was he murdered?

Um... Since we can assume that the gunman was outside the car, I'd say the gunman opened the door, shot him without entering the car, took the keys and locked it on the outside. Hopefully the gunman was smart enough to wear gloves.
