 You know that you must kill them. Do you? If so, do you choose to kill them while they are still human?

#2 Edited by Enigma777 (6074 posts) -

Seeing as I was probably the person who pushed them down the stairs so they could buy me more time, yes. It's the humane thing to do.

I keep em caged and regularly visit the brains grocery store.

#4 Posted by EuanDewar (4971 posts) -

I fucking mess them up with the nearest weapon. NO LIABILITIES MAN.
#5 Posted by TaliciaDragonsong (8699 posts) -

Yep, they's dead to me.
 
Self preservation above all!

#6 Posted by Make_Me_Mad (3103 posts) -

Selfless quest for a cure, maybe amputate the limb and hope for the best if it was a neck or torso bite or anything.  Unless it was my mom or dad, in which case they'd probably opt for the shovel to the face solution.

I dunno but i'd definitely mow down all the heartless fuckers in this thread if they turned into a zombie

#8 Posted by Suicidal_SNiper (949 posts) -

Tough question. I might just leave them where they are and go on without them...

Why does everyone like zombies so much?

Yep

Bullet to the head,i would expect of them to do the same if i was bitten. So,as fun as a zombie apocalypse may seem, thank God it wont happen (yet),cuz killing family members/close friends sucks.

#14 Posted by Mcfart (1627 posts) -

I'd violate em first.
 
 
 
 
cuz they're technically a zombie now...

#15 Posted by KillyDarko (1888 posts) -

Isolate and chain them, wait for them to die, then kill them.

#16 Edited by BabyChooChoo (4542 posts) -

Shoot them after they become a zombie. As I told my friend once, "Just so you know, I would shoot you without hesitation if you ever turned into a zombie."
 
We laughed. Then I told him I was serious.

hell yeah they're dead to be once they're like that. If emotions get in the way, you're fucked !
#19 Posted by Sweep (8872 posts) -

 Depends who they are and how long it takes them to turn. If it's an elderly relative who is just going to slow me down then I would rather put them out of their misery than risk them fucking everything up or going through a lot of pain - this is of course assuming that society has crumbled and I can't take them to a hospital to be euthanised. However if it was someone like my brother and he wasn't going to turn for a few hours, it might be better to let him live for a while - he might be able to help you while he is still in a stable condition. 
 
I also know that, if he did get infected, he would kill himself before I would have to. I would do the same for him if it was me that got infected. We have had our zombie survival strategy planned out for many years. 
 
If the question is "Would you be happy about it" then the answer is, obviously, no.

No I would lock them in a room and run around a mall for zombrex

#21 Posted by danimal_furry (1453 posts) -

They are already dead, man. Save them the agony.    
#22 Posted by Gamer_152 (14081 posts) -

I'd kill them as soon as they turned.

#23 Posted by LadyShayne (131 posts) -

Funnily enough I asked this very same question to my mother recently, and she responded with a swift and stern "Yes. If I'm a zombie, I expect you to kill me because...I just wouldn't be myself anymore." If that's not family bonding, I don't know what is.

#24 Posted by JeffGoldblum (3704 posts) -

I would shoot that motherfucker in the head. No mercy.

#25 Posted by ArchScabby (5809 posts) -

I would keep them chained in a shed in the backyard and occasionally go back there to play Time  Splitters with them.

#26 Posted by ryoma122 (699 posts) -
@InfiniteGeass:  can i kill them any way even if they havent been bitten i dont like my family ???
#27 Posted by EpicSteve (6487 posts) -

Kill them before they're a threat if there's no hope. If there's a cure, tie their hand down cover their mouth if possible and locke them up. Leaving them can create another obstacle for someone else. The body must be destroyed. Every zombie counts, right? 

#28 Posted by Akeldama (4250 posts) -

You must not show "mercy" in this situation. The only true mercy you can show is to finish them off before they turn. Better you than them as they have already been doomed.

#29 Edited by Kyreo (4600 posts) -

It depends on how long it takes for them to Zombify.  If we're talking 28 days later shit, I'd shoot without thinking, but if it's Dead Rising business I'd chain their wrist to a radiator and find some zombrex or make their last moments worthwhile. 
 
Also I would kill them BEFORE they turned.  I wouldn't want them to have to experience that.  It may hurt, or they may FEEL themselves losing their mind.  I wouldn't want that for them.

#30 Posted by zudthespud (3281 posts) -

It depends what kind of zombie they are. If it's like 28 days later where you have minutes, then fuck them and kill them with the nearest thing that will do the job. If it's like Resident Evil or Shaun of the Dead, I'd give them a little time I suppose.

Great minds think alike.
#32 Posted by ozzdog12 (861 posts) -

Well when my friend Ed was bitten, I put him in the shed and we used  to play Timesplitters 2....

#33 Posted by Driam (162 posts) -

No! I can still save them! We just need to get to the OHGODITSEATINGMYFACEWHYDIDNTIJUSTFUCKINGSHOOTITGODDAMN!

#34 Posted by EquitasInvictus (2030 posts) -

I'd turn them into a magical girl zombie!

But really, I'd euthanize them. Having them actually turn is too horrible - I'd argue it's worse than death.

#35 Posted by jozzy (2042 posts) -

Eh..I think I'll cross that bridge when I get there.

#36 Posted by JacDG (2127 posts) -

I kill it with fire.

#37 Posted by SomeJerk (3263 posts) -

 My family is filled with tender love and care for one another, so I'd give them some carefully chosen parting words and wait for them to pass (out) before delivering a good chop.
 
Father -  "You thought leukaemia would do you in, surprise surprise. My regards to your brother when you see him."
Mother - "Good news, you won't die from the heart valve issues that took care of your sisters and brothers, bad news, welp!"
Sister - "Guess it's time I finally admit, that you were the one I liked the least of my five sisters. I'll take care of the kids for you"

Why wait for them to be bitten by a zombie!

#39 Posted by Twisted_Scot (1180 posts) -

Their call. If they want to be left alone to spend the last few mins alive so be it. If not....go of Mice and men on them when their not looking.

#40 Posted by CptChiken (1987 posts) -

The only correct way is the sean of the dead way.

#41 Posted by JackSukeru (5917 posts) -

I'd give them a weapon, and tell them to go out there and take out as many of the fuckers as they can before turning. 
 
I'd do the same thing myself, take as many of them with me as I could in the hopes of helping someone else.

Your mom is the coolest... 
 
And I would kill them if they didn't want to kill themselves first; after we said goodbye (assuming we have time).  I would expect the same of them if I was the one bitten.
#43 Posted by Capum15 (4907 posts) -

Wait until they turn, then destroy them. Don't take your eyes off them until they turn and you've dealt with them, however, or you may find yourself fucked too.

When the world goes to hell, you do everything you can to survive, or you won't. I won't take them out while they're still human, but I have no qualms about killing zombies.

#44 Posted by RTSlord (1201 posts) -

they'd know that killing them has to happen, otherwise they'd transform into an inhuman monster who would not only hurt their friends and loved ones, but who would probably end up getting their head blown off anyways
#45 Posted by Soapy86 (2623 posts) -

Yes. 
 
If I found a good opportunity I wouldn't wait for them to turn. Ideally I would catch them asleep or something to make it easier on both of us and also so their last memory isn't me pointing a gun in their face.  
 
I have to say though, what kind of asshole is going to make his or her friend or family member kill them? That's a pretty hard thing to ask of someone. If you had any sense of decency, you would kill yourself. Take it out of their hands completely. Make it easy on them. 

#46 Posted by sickVisionz (1268 posts) -

I'd lock them in a room and try to get someone else to kill them.  If it was a situation where we were constantly on the move, I'd just leave them behind.

#47 Posted by dbz1995 (4790 posts) -

I'd trap them in my toilet. You can't get out of there.
 If it is a woman: She will be mine or she will burn!

#48 Posted by BrokenHeartsSyndrome (1 posts) -

Me?

Hmm... I'd only kill them human if they ask me to, and maybe not even then. Depends on whether or not the transition is a painful one.

I don't think I'd ever kill another person though, bitten or not. I'm not that heartless. And the guilt would probably kill me faster than the zombies would.

#49 Posted by WoodenPlatypus (1365 posts) -


I wouldnt need to do this, my closest friends and I are fully prepared for such a thing?

As far as family goes Id have trouble shooting my mam, siblings and my mothers side of the family. The rest Id shoot if I saw them around in a normal everyday situation.

#50 Posted by dagas (2841 posts) -

Enough with the zombies already. I can't believe people actually think about this sort of stuff, I've even read about people having plans for the zombie apocalypse and stuff. Even if it's just for fun it's a bit crazy. Zombies are as fictional as orcs or klingons. I'm proud to say I have not bought anything zombie related since the original Dead Rising.
