What Would You Do If … Dilemmas In A Zombie Apocalypse: No. 9 – The Group Survival Dilemma

26 Apr

You’ve joined up with some other survivors. You only met them yesterday and you haven’t had time to know them properly yet. The group has set up a camp in a forest clearing and you’ve pitched your tent slightly away from the rest of them to give you a bit of privacy. You get up in early the next morning and find not only has the lookout fallen asleep but there’s a horde of zombies surging towards the camp. By some miracle, they don’t seem to have noticed you and are, instead, heading for the rest of the tents where everyone else is sleeping. If you sneak quietly away, you’ll survive but the others will be taken by surprise and they’ll be slaughtered by the swarm of undead that’s about to descend on them. If you shout a warning, you’ll alert the zombies to your presence making your successful escape much less likely but it will give the others a chance of getting away as well. What do you do?

What Would You Do If … Dilemmas In A Zombie Apocalypse: No. 8 – The Crying Baby Dilemma

19 Apr

You’re in a group of eight people including your husband and your two older children, a boy aged twelve and a girl aged ten. There’s zombies nearby and you’re trying to keep as quite as possible so they don’t know you’re there as you creep away. Then your youngest child, a nine-month-old baby, starts to whimper. It’s quiet now but you know it’s a prelude to crying that’s only going to get louder and louder until it attracts the attention of the zombies. You have two other children to think about and the rest of the group but no matter what you do the child won’t stop crying. What do you do?*

*This dilemma originates in an episode of M*A*S*H, or at least that’s where I first remember coming across it (I could be wrong on this front so don’t quote me on that!).

What Would You Do If … Dilemmas In A Zombie Apocalypse: No. 7 – The Bite Dilemma

12 Apr

You examine your hand carefully. The bite doesn’t seem to have broken the skin but you can’t be sure. If it has, you’ll have been infected. If it hasn’t you’ll be okay. No one else saw what happened but if you tell the rest of the group they’ll throw you out no matter what just to be on the safe side. If they do, the zombies will get and you’ll die for sure. If you don’t say anything and you’ve been infected, they’ll have no warning when you turn and attack them, and many of them will probably die. What do you do?

What Would You Do If … Dilemmas In A Zombie Apocalypse: No. 6 – The Mother And Child Dilemma

5 Apr

The woman thanks you for letting them in. She says you saved their lives and she’ll be forever in your debt. As she picks up her young child, you notice some fresh blood on his back. The woman hurriedly pulls his t-shirt down and says it’s just a scratch he got when climbing through a broken window. It looks more like a bite to you but you can’t be sure and she won’t let you examine him properly. To send them back out would mean certain death but if the child has been bitten he’ll turn, risking the lives of your family and friends. What do you do?

What Would You Do If … Dilemmas In A Zombie Apocalypse: No. 5 – The Family Dilemma

29 Mar

You’re in your car waiting in a queue to drive onto a ferry. It’s just arrived but when the bow doors open you’re surprised to see a seething mass of people pour onto the quayside. It takes you a moment before you realise something’s wrong but by then they’ve started running towards you, attacking anyone they can catch. That’s when you realise the zombie apocalypse has begun. The zombie horde will be on you in seconds and your only chance is to get out and run. You look round to where your three children are sitting in the back seat. If you try to take them all with you, it’ll slow you down too much and you almost certainly get caught and if that happens you’ll all die. With two kids in tow, your chances of surviving are better but still only 50:50. If you only take one, you’re almost certain you’ll be able to move fast enough to get away. What do you do?

What Would You Do If … Dilemmas In A Zombie Apocalypse: No. 4 – The Sinking Ship Dilemma

22 Mar

Your boat’s sinking and it’s sinking fast. You have two choices and only moments to decide: You can stay in the water and hope that someone rescues you before the sharks start to circle or you can make for the shore and take your chances with the zombies that now rule the land. What do you do?

What Would You Do If … Dilemmas In A Zombie Apocalypse: No. 3 – The Brother Dilemma

15 Mar

Your only gun slips from your waistband as you scramble into the dingy after your brother and push away from the dock. You lie back thinking you’re finally safe; then you realise he’s been bitten. At first you try to stop the bleeding but slowly the severity of your situation dawns on you. You’re brother’s going to turn and if both of you are still in the small boat when that happens he’ll attack; with so little space and no weapons to hand, there will be little you can do to defend yourself. You wrack your brains but you can only come up with two options: you could swim back to shore where you’d have to constantly fight for your survival or you could throw your brother into the water before he turns – he’d drown but you’d be able to stay in the safety of the boat. What do you do?
