I don't know if this is already up or not, but I'll do this anyway.

The question is simple. Would you kill someone? However, some people would say no, so I'll put up some situations where you're actually gonna have to make that choice.

1. Would you kill someone if they were raping someone, and you were in the middle of nowhere, with no cellphone?

2. Would you kill someone if they were threating your life or someone else's life?

3. Would you kill someone if you found out that they were going to kill the head of your country tonight, and you had 5 minutes to stop them?

4. Would you kill someone if you and that person were on a stranded island, everything edible was gone...except that person? Would you eat them? And, the rescue boat is coming in 2 weeks....(you don't know that)since you haven't eaten for 1 already, you'll die. Also, that person is planning to eat you...

5. Would you kill someone if you were forced to, if someone was gonna kill you?

6. Would you kill someone if given the choice? If they were going to reward you, would you do it?

Serious answers only. I'll have a Moderator delete them...this is serious stuff, okay?

Phew, that was a lot...my answers will come later. Copy + Paste the questions into your reply, and type your answer under them. I look forward to reading your replies...

Yes, Yes, Yes, No, and Yes. In that order.

It's not a big deal in my opinion. The world is so screwed up at this point that some people are just rabid animals that need to be put down. I wouldn't enjoy it, but I'd do it.

To elaborate on Number 4, I would if they tried to eat me first. :cheeky:

1. Maim, but not kill. The reason...i'd like to see the person suffer a lot longer in prison where fun things happen.

2. Not if I could escape.

3. Yes

4. No, it seems i'm going to starve anyways so why prolong the fun.

5. Yes, since it seems I can't escape in this scenario.

1. I would try to knock the rapist unconscious, but not kill.
2. No, because they could be empty threats - I would report him/her to the police.
3. I would try to knock the person unconscious as well, but not kill.
4. I find this very unlikely. I would be more likely to kill myself and offer my body to that person for food.
5. I would try to knock them unconscious as well. Yes, if my attempts at convincing them has failed, I think that I should protect my life.

1-3. I'd incapacitate them, restrain them, and have the proper authorities take care of them. Killing them is a bit extreme when you can just deliver enough blunt force to knock them unconscious. :S

4. I HATE THIS ONE. Seriously. Not answering it. :|

5. If it's me or him, it ain't me. :V

1. Would you kill someone if they were raping someone, and you were in the middle of nowhere, with no cellphone?

Multiple stab wounds, body dumped, good to go!

2. Would you kill someone if they were threating your life or someone else's life?


Not unless if they were brandishing a weapon, or actually intent on killing me, or unless if I knew I was in absolute danger.

3. Would you kill someone if you found out that they were going to kill the president tonight, and you have 5 minutes to stop them?


No, I'd report them afterwards. XD

4. Would you kill someone if you and that person were on a stranded island, everything edible was gone...except that person? Would you eat them?


If I were going to die alone on the island anyway, than no. But if I knew there was some chance of rescue, than yeah.

5. Would you kill someone if you were forced to, if someone was gonna kill you?


This one is the hardest to answer, if I were able to kill the person who told me to kill another, than I would try to do so.

2. Would you kill someone if they were threating your life or someone else's life?
no
3. Would you kill someone if you found out that they were going to kill the president tonight, and you have 5 minutes to stop them?

4. Would you kill someone if you and that person were on a stranded island, everything edible was gone...except that person? Would you eat them?

No to all of them. Number 4 is not necessarily an exception. Why? Well, I wouldn't kill them if it wasn't necessary. Incapacitation works wonders, and unconsciousness would incapacitate them long enough for me to lock them up in something. Even if they did wake up, they'd be disoriented from the unconsciousness so that I could do it again.

About number 4. I am a somewhat bulky person. Unless the other person was a morbidly obese person, then I could outlast them. I'd outlast them, eat them, then begin to mutilate myself to survive even longer. I'd probably die, but I'd eventually die anyway. If the person is fatter then me, then I'd kill them.

OMG. People replied OoO.

I'll elaborate on all of them, to make it harder.

2. They were going to shoot you. With a gun with actual bullets. 20 rounds. You got a knife. They show you the gun, about to shoot you and you got 5 seconds to react. Kill or be killed.

3. The whole political party is targeted. Without them, we're screwed. They have a bomb. 5 minutes to stop them. You have a gun. Do it?

4. The rescue boat is coming in a week. The other person is...very, very obese. A man. you guys know that you can't survive a week without food, cause you haven't eaten for 1 week already. Another would literally kill you. P.S., he wants to kill you.

5....nothing needs to be improved.

Pssh :P

You can't add factors afterwards XD :P

Needless to say, I know that people here say they would do that, but they probably won't... I'm one of the few that won't hesistate, because I know I'd kill someone, if I had to.

2. They were going to shoot you. With a gun with actual bullets. 20 rounds. You got a knife. They show you the gun, about to shoot you and you got 5 seconds to react. Kill or be killed.

In that situation, if the guy was smart, he'd keep away until he could shoot, he'd kill you before you could do anything, so I'd say no, only because I couldn't.

3. The whole political party is targeted. Without them, we're screwed. They have a bomb. 5 minutes to stop them. You have a gun. Do it?

Even then, you don't need to kill them. Shoot them in the leg, they won't be able to do much, even with a bomb, if they don't reach their destination. And if you say that the bomb is already there, then just get someone to dispose of it. Not hard.

4. The rescue boat is coming in a week. The other person is...very, very obese. A man. you guys know that you can't survive a week without food, cause you haven't eaten for 1 week already. Another would literally kill you. P.S., he wants to kill you.

I know I'm going to sound like a jerk, but why wouldn't you have eaten something before then? Oh well, it's a hypothetical situation. If it's a week, I doubt I'd kill them, and if they're as fat as described, they'd be unable to kill me, even if they have the drive to. They'd be too slow, and run out of energy too quickly.

There you go.

1. Would you kill someone if they were raping someone, and you were in the middle of nowhere, with no cellphone?
Yes, no one has the right to sexually confront someone against thier will.
2. Would you kill someone if they were threating your life or someone else's life?
This may seem bad but yes.

3. Would you kill someone if you found out that they were going to kill the president tonight, and you have 5 minutes to stop them?
Sorry president but nope. You waste money on fancy new building yet you seem to not have enough money to help the poor people, funny don't you think? So sorry But that's a No.
4. Would you kill someone if you and that person were on a stranded island, everything edible was gone...except that person? Would you eat them?
Well I would have to unless I decide I would live of salt water. ^-^ Hehe I am smart.
5. Would you kill someone if you were forced to, if someone was gonna kill you?
It depends on the situation. In most cases yes.

2. Yes. It's self defense.
3. Yes, as long as I could gain evidence to defend me from imprisonment.
4. No. At least, not for a while.
5. I'd kill the person threatening to kill me.

1. Would you kill someone if they were raping someone, and you were in the middle of nowhere, with no cellphone?
No, but I'd quite happily beat the living daylights out of them, tie them up (or just knock unconcious) and drag them to the police.

2. Would you kill someone if they were threating your life or someone else's life?
If it was literally me (or someone I love) or them, and I couldn't stop them in any other way, then yes.

3. Would you kill someone if you found out that they were going to kill the president tonight, and you have 5 minutes to stop them?
Well I'm not american, so I'll just reword the question as it being about the queen or something. To be honest, I'd once again try and stop them without lethal force, I don't think I could actually kill someone for that, since I don't know the queen personally. But I would certainly try and stop them.

4. Would you kill someone if you and that person were on a stranded island, everything edible was gone...except that person? Would you eat them?
Honestly, I don't know. I think in a situation like that, rational thought goes out the window, so I can't predict what I'd do.

5. Would you kill someone if you were forced to, if someone was gonna kill you?
This is far too vague for me to really answer. It really depends on who I was being asked to kill, if it was some scumbag that spent his life raping and killing people, I'd be more likely to do than if it was my mother.

Sigh, that could very well be a hypocritical statement you know. I would kill them in the aformentioned situations, as I don't believe in second chances in those peoples cases.

Number 1 chose to rape somebody, that is unforgivable.

Number 2 decided to commit a homocide, that is inforgivable.

Number 3 is ridiculous, but threatening to kill the President of the United States is also, unforgivable.

Number 4 I said no to, unless they try to eat me first, which in my eyes, is unforgivable.

And Number 5 threatened to end my life, and that's unforgivable.

I assure you many of us would commit murder in these horrid situations, and not just yourself.

1. Would you kill someone if they were raping someone, and you were in the middle of nowhere, with no cellphone?
Severe incapacitation followed by binding and a call to authorities seems more appropriate.

2. Would you kill someone if they were threating your life or someone else's life?
Depends on the level of urgency. If it's not too urgent, calling the authorities seems more efficient. For more urgent scenarios, see #1.

3. Would you kill someone if you found out that they were going to kill the president tonight, and you have 5 minutes to stop them?
I'd most likely chase them down and detain them before the assassination attempt, followed by #1.

4. Would you kill someone if you and that person were on a stranded island, everything edible was gone...except that person? Would you eat them?
Only if they try to eat me first.

5. Would you kill someone if you were forced to, if someone was gonna kill you?
In this extreme of a scenario, I think I actually would. >_<

As much as I admire action movie heroes for their sheer amount of badassery, I've no desire to become one myself. XD

Believe it or not, killing someone who is comitting sexual assault is legal in Malaysia. Huh. So Yes. XD

2. Would you kill someone if they were threatening your life or someone else's life?
Why not? Yes. XD

3. Would you kill someone if you found out that they were going to kill the president tonight, and you have 5 minutes to stop them?
Depends on which President of what country... Malaysian Prime Minister, yes, I would kill them.

4. Would you kill someone if you and that person were on a stranded island, everything edible was gone...except that person? Would you eat them?
Well, I'd kill him, but I wouldn't eat him. I'd just kill him to avoid boredom and to conserve supplies...

5. Would you kill someone if you were forced to, if someone was gonna kill you?
Without a doubt...

Hahaaha, I'm no psychopath, I'm just a sadist so actually I have no idea if I'd actually kill someone.

1. Would you kill someone if they were raping someone, and you were in the middle of nowhere, with no cellphone?
I'm not capable of killing anyone, I hope. The most I would do is pose some harm to them by hurting them in some way. If I were to have a gun, I wouldn't shoot to kill, but shoot to inflict pain. Criminals like that shouldn't deserve to be killed on the spot; there should be some form of corporal punishment, whether done by an official, or a total fellow do-gooder.

2. Would you kill someone if they were threating your life or someone else's life?
People toss threats around as jokes now adays, it's kind of mind boggling at the amount of people who really can't comprehend the seriousness of a threat. People threaten other people everyday so, no, I wouldn't kill someone for threatening my life. At the same time as how serious it is, it's a threat... not a motive of action. People make threats when they're angry. Who's to say that he or she wasn't angry when she said that? Unless that's a total stranger randomly coming up to me saying they're going to kill me, no.

3. Would you kill someone if you found out that they were going to kill the president tonight, and you have 5 minutes to stop them?
Probably not.

4. Would you kill someone if you and that person were on a stranded island, everything edible was gone...except that person? Would you eat them?
Um, no. That's just disturbing on... so many levels.

5. Would you kill someone if you were forced to, if someone was gonna kill you?
I don't know. This is a hard thing to think about and it seems like I'd be running on nerves rather than rational thinking at that point. There's no telling what someone who isn't thinking properly can do.

No, I'd just knock him out

2. Would you kill someone if they were threating your life or someone else's life?
Threatening? No. They would need to make the first move. Otherwise, I'd just be watching them

3. Would you kill someone if you found out that they were going to kill the president tonight, and you have 5 minutes to stop them?
That's a tough one... no. I'd knock him out, again. xD

4. Would you kill someone if you and that person were on a stranded island, everything edible was gone...except that person? Would you eat them?
Seriously? I just answered the Cannibalism thread. >_> NO WAY

5. Would you kill someone if you were forced to, if someone was gonna kill you?
If it's a sure thing, that they were gonna kill me, then yes.

1. Would you kill someone if they were raping someone, and you were in the middle of nowhere, with no cellphone?
Uh I don't think so. Maybe I would just kick them in their privates a bunch of times. In this situation I don't think I would have enough adrenaline to kill them.

2. Would you kill someone if they were threating your life or someone else's life?
Only if I knew they were serious and made an action towards me or the other person. Even though I'd probably still try to knock them out or something like that.

3. Would you kill someone if you found out that they were going to kill the president tonight, and you have 5 minutes to stop them?
No I'd just tell someone.

4. Would you kill someone if you and that person were on a stranded island, everything edible was gone...except that person? Would you eat them?
No. I'd just wait for them to die from starvation. Unless I go first then the waiting would of been for nothing.

5. Would you kill someone if you were forced to, if someone was gonna kill you?
That's a tough one. Hmm I really don't know in this situation.

1. Would you kill someone if they were raping someone, and you were in the middle of nowhere, with no cellphone?
Why bother? I would just knock them out and call the authorities. They can take care of it from there.

2. Would you kill someone if they were threating your life or someone else's life?
If they actually had a weapon and were dead serious (ahaha, yeah, sorry about that; that wasn't funny at all), and I had no other choice, then I'd at least try to hurt them enough to incapacitate them. I don't know if I'd go as far as killing them.

3. Would you kill someone if you found out that they were going to kill the president tonight, and you have 5 minutes to stop them?
Probably not. If I could at least try to detain them, then I may try. But I'd try to alert the authorities first.

4. Would you kill someone if you and that person were on a stranded island, everything edible was gone...except that person? Would you eat them?
Ugh. No way. even if I did kill them, I'd be too repulsed to cut/cook/eat him or her. I wouldn't even get to the first step. Forget cannabilism. I have a weak stomach. The sight of blood and organs make me feel nauseous and faint.

And if the other person were to want to kill me, I'd just try to knock them out and lock them up. Hopefully, if I was stranded, I'd still be thinking somewhat logically and lock them up before they had a chance to think about killing me.

5. Would you kill someone if you were forced to, if someone was gonna kill you?
If the scenario was extreme enough, I probably would. Mainly because I'd probably be running on pure adrenaline by then, and I doubt that I would be able to think clearly.

1. Would you kill someone if they were raping someone, and you were in the middle of nowhere, with no cellphone?
Depends if I know the person, if they have a weapon, and if I have one. If I didn't know the victim, I wouldn't risk my life trying to stop the rapist. But if they can't hurt me, and I have a weapon, I'd do it. I have no moral problems with killing them, and surely the person getting raped would prove that it was self-defense.

2. Would you kill someone if they were threating your life or someone else's life?
Yep.

3. Would you kill someone if you found out that they were going to kill the president tonight, and you have 5 minutes to stop them?
No, why should I care what happens to him? If the security is that weak, they're kinda asking for it.

4. Would you kill someone if you and that person were on a stranded island, everything edible was gone...except that person? Would you eat them?
Eh, I'd probably just kill myself. Why prolong the inevitable?

5. Would you kill someone if you were forced to, if someone was gonna kill you?
Yep.

I have no problems with killing someone who deserves it, or letting someone I don't know die. I'm not going to put my own life at risk to kill someone, though.

1. Would you kill someone if they were raping someone, and you were in the middle of nowhere, with no cellphone?
Yes, if there was no other way. But if I could just like, knock them out or seriously injure them so they can't carry on I'd do that instead, I'd rather not go to jail thanks.

2. Would you kill someone if they were threating your life or someone else's life?
Again, if I really didn't have another choice, but I'd have no problem with killing them. But if this 'someone else' was a stranger to me, I'd leave them.

3. Would you kill someone if you found out that they were going to kill the president tonight, and you have 5 minutes to stop them?
No. It's not my life, I'm not risking it for someone I have no connection to.

4. Would you kill someone if you and that person were on a stranded island, everything edible was gone...except that person? Would you eat them?
No, I'm not a cannibal. If there was no chance of escape I'd die anyway, why prolong the torture? They'd be the ones suffering if I didn't eat them.

5. Would you kill someone if you were forced to, if someone was gonna kill you?
Yeah. I have no problem with the idea of killing someone, especially when my life is threatened. But I don't like the idea of jail.

And if you're wondering why I hate the idea of jail so much, just look at me. I'm skinny, not bad looking, average height, and I don't have muscles. Don't get my wrong I can throw a good punch, but when put next to the sterotype of a guy in jail, he'd rape me so hard. Or he'd just beat me up. Either way, I'd be in pain.

1. I wouldn't want to kill, but if there was no other options....I'd never forgive myself, though. In any of the cases.
2. If I were, lets say, a hostage who knew he was going to die anyway. Yes, I'd do it to save my or someone else's life.
3. Yes. Even though I am not a USA citizen, the president is still a symbol, and I would try to protect him.
4. I couldn't bare to do so. And I would rather offer my own body, because even if I were to survive afterward, I could not live with myself.
5. Yes. If it was the only way, and if an opportunity arose.

Ah man, I forgot to edit my post....hold on, I'll fix it...

But wow. I thought less people would kill. On #1, most of you would beat them up. #2, most of you would not, but some would actually do it. #3, it varies by the person. I'll change the title of that person, like the Queen or somebody. #4, most say no to cannibalism. But some say yes! #5...most would, but actually less would not.

I'm surprised more then you guys by these results...

2: If they were serious and I had to, yes.

3: Maybe. I'm not exactly sure who "the head of this country" is anyway. Is it the norwegian king?.. I dunno

4: If (s)he's already planning to eat me, why the hell shouldn't I eat him/her first? o_O

5: I'd go to the police and stay there until i'm sure that the person that's going to kill me is in jail.

6: Definately not O_O why would I do that? :X

1. No, but I'd knock them out so they could'nt anymore.

2. I'd wait for them to make there move. Then hold thier own life in my hands only let them live. Then I'd walk away and say. "Next time, your mine."

3. Sniper. Enough said.

4. Unless I could fish or the other person was fat, yes. Food is fuel.

5. See #2. I'd kill them the first time though if they tried to kill me. If I was forced to it would depend on the person.

6. Depends on the reward.

1. Would you kill someone if they were raping someone, and you were in the middle of nowhere, with no cellphone?

- No I wouldn't. heard of something called hitting uncoincious? Or even running away?

2. Would you kill someone if they were threating your life or someone else's life?

- I'd prefer not to. But you can do alot of things if your life is in danger.

3. Would you kill someone if you found out that they were going to kill the head of your country tonight, and you had 5 minutes to stop them?

- Probably not.

4. Would you kill someone if you and that person were on a stranded island, everything edible was gone...except that person? Would you eat them? And, the rescue boat is coming in 2 weeks....(you don't know that)since you haven't eaten for 1 already, you'll die. Also, that person is planning to eat you...

- Uhm... I might. It's really something you can't know, so yeah...

5. Would you kill someone if you were forced to, if someone was gonna kill you?

- Same as 2.

6. Would you kill someone if given the choice? If they were going to reward you, would you do it?

- Couse not. Unless... >:D

...No.

1. Would you kill someone if they were raping someone, and you were in the middle of nowhere, with no cellphone?

No, just disable them.

2. Would you kill someone if they were threating your life or someone else's life?

I'd rather not, but probably would if given the opportunity. I'd prefer to just disable them.

3. Would you kill someone if you found out that they were going to kill the head of your country tonight, and you had 5 minutes to stop them?

Probably not.

4. Would you kill someone if you and that person were on a stranded island, everything edible was gone...except that person? Would you eat them? And, the rescue boat is coming in 2 weeks....(you don't know that)since you haven't eaten for 1 already, you'll die. Also, that person is planning to eat you...

Nooooo...... ugh. Don't wanna think about it. But then again, you're in a totally different mindset in that case--probably going crazy from thirst and hunger. But I don't want to think about that... :p

5. Would you kill someone if you were forced to, if someone was gonna kill you?

Yeah (though I'd prefer not to)--I think it'd be foolish to not do it. When it comes right down to it, that's just how it is though. The fittest survive...

6. Would you kill someone if given the choice? If they were going to reward you, would you do it?

Never.

1. Would you kill someone if they were raping someone, and you were in the middle of nowhere, with no cellphone?
Yes, if i really needed too. Otherwise a good K.O would do me fine.

2. Would you kill someone if they were threating your life or someone else's life?
My life? Yes, but i'd rather deal with it in another way, like rat them out or injure them as a warning.
Someone elses life? maybe, but i would be less inclined to get involved.

3. Would you kill someone if you found out that they were going to kill the head of your country tonight, and you had 5 minutes to stop them?
Ha! No, the Prime Minister of my country is one of the people I want to kill. If anything, i would try to help them.

4. Would you kill someone if you and that person were on a stranded island, everything edible was gone...except that person? Would you eat them? And, the rescue boat is coming in 2 weeks....(you don't know that)since you haven't eaten for 1 already, you'll die. Also, that person is planning to eat you...
Not unless they try to kill me. If i didn't know the rescue boat was coming, i would only kill in self defense from the other person. If i did know, i probably would kill them, but once again only once they start to try and kill me, then i have less of a moral dilemma .

5. Would you kill someone if you were forced to, if someone was gonna kill you?
Yes, i would love to see who wouldn't.

6. Would you kill someone if given the choice? If they were going to reward you, would you do it?
There are plenty of people i would like to shove off a cliff, given the opportunity, i would do it, especially if there was a reward.

I would maybe do these if I am brave if that happens:

1. Would you kill someone if they were raping someone, and you were in the middle of nowhere, with no cellphone?
I would hurt him like hell (punch, kick, etc.) but I don't know if I would kill because I would like to see him go to jail.

2. Would you kill someone if they were threating your life or someone else's life?
It depends how. I think I would do the same as in question 1. But I would also sue him.

3. Would you kill someone if you found out that they were going to kill the head of your country tonight, and you had 5 minutes to stop them?
Maybe I'd tell someone to do something about it, but it would be too risky to kill. Maybe I would try to ruin his plan.

4. Would you kill someone if you and that person were on a stranded island, everything edible was gone...except that person? Would you eat them? And, the rescue boat is coming in 2 weeks....(you don't know that)since you haven't eaten for 1 already, you'll die. Also, that person is planning to eat you...
Well this is a tough one. I think I would. But if it's someone that I know then I would think about the consequences with people in the future. Oh well, I would have to save my life, so I would say yes.

5. Would you kill someone if you were forced to, if someone was gonna kill you?
Nope, unless they kidnapped somebody then maybe. Or I would kidnap the person I had to kill, get back the person the other guy kidnapped, and release the guy whom I was supposed to kill.

6. Would you kill someone if given the choice? If they were going to reward you, would you do it?
Absolutely not. Even for all the money in the world. I don't need all the money in the world anyways.

1. Would you kill someone if they were raping someone, and you were in the middle of nowhere, with no cellphone?
If there is absolutely no way to apprehend the criminal and bringing them to justice later, then yes, I would.
2. Would you kill someone if they were threatening your life or someone else's life?
Depends on how serious the situation gets. If the person is serious about it and is ready to take action, I will have no problem with retaliation.
3. Would you kill someone if you found out that they were going to kill the head of your country tonight, and you had 5 minutes to stop them?
Without a doubt, I would.
4. Would you kill someone if you and that person were on a stranded island, everything edible was gone...except that person? Would you eat them? And, the rescue boat is coming in 2 weeks....(you don't know that)since you haven't eaten for 1 already, you'll die. Also, that person is planning to eat you...
Personally, I am against cannibalism. I don't really have a reason immediately in my head, but I would not eat another human being if given the choice to do so. I would ask them to kindly give me a quick and painless death if they plan to cook me. ._.;
5. Would you kill someone if you were forced to, if someone was gonna kill you?
Given my weak resolve to save myself, I doubt that I would.
6. Would you kill someone if given the choice? If they were going to reward you, would you do it?
I would never consciously take another person's life for mere monetary profit.

1. Would you kill someone if they were raping someone, and you were in the middle of nowhere, with no cellphone?
No, but I would stop him or her through other means before getting assistance.

2. Would you kill someone if they were threating your life or someone else's life?I would find a way to resolve the situation that did not require unnecessary death.

3. Would you kill someone if you found out that they were going to kill the head of your country tonight, and you had 5 minutes to stop them?I would stop him or her without killing him or her.

4. Would you kill someone if you and that person were on a stranded island, everything edible was gone...except that person? Would you eat them? And, the rescue boat is coming in 2 weeks....(you don't know that)since you haven't eaten for 1 already, you'll die. Also, that person is planning to eat you...No. If worst came to worst and one of us was going to die of starvation, I would probably sacrifice myself for his or her, though I'd have to give it some serious thought.

5. Would you kill someone if you were forced to, if someone was gonna kill you?No.

6. Would you kill someone if given the choice? If they were going to reward you, would you do it?
No.

1. Would you kill someone if they were raping someone, and you were in the middle of nowhere, with no cellphone?
I wouldn't kill them, no. I'd probably sneak up behind him and knock him unconscious with a brick or something. See, I don't brag and pretend I'm the strongest human alive and say I'd beat the living crap out of him when I know I wouldn't be able to. Killing someone is way out of order.

2. Would you kill someone if they were threatening your life or someone else's life?
If my life was being threatened, or someone close to me's life was being threatened, I would take immediate action. Again, I wouldn't kill them. I'd try and talk my way out of the situation.

3. Would you kill someone if you found out that they were going to kill the head of your country tonight, and you had 5 minutes to stop them?
No, I wouldn't be able to stop them. This isn't a movie. I'd call the police.

4. Would you kill someone if you and that person were on a stranded island, everything edible was gone...except that person? Would you eat them? And, the rescue boat is coming in 2 weeks....(you don't know that)since you haven't eaten for 1 already, you'll die. Also, that person is planning to eat you...
I wouldn't be able to eat another person, but if I couldn't stop him from eating me, I'd attempt to kill him, yes. It's my survival or his, and if I don't know said person, I see no reason to pit my own survival against his. Besides, if he wanted to eat me I think he deserves to die anyway.

5. Would you kill someone if you were forced to, if someone was gonna kill you?
If I couldn't get the police and government involved, I'd attempt to end the threat on my life. Yes.

6. Would you kill someone if given the choice? If they were going to reward you, would you do it?
Definitely not, no. No reward is worth a life of another human or animal. At least, that's the way I see things.

Closing this for now because it doesn't seem very appropriate for a Pokemon forum.

Going to discuss this with Chibi and a few other staff members to get their opinion~
