    Also: my claim that killing the baby is the better option does NOT mean A) I want to do it, obviously or B) if I were in the situation, I could. That proclamation is made using total logic and detachment. If I somehow were in a position like this, it's very, very possible (probably likely) I simply could not make myself do it. But I will probably never know for sure. Which is fine by me.

    I've wanted to kill babies crying on airplanes or movie theaters. :steam:

    But seriously, if it meant everyone else dying, then the baby has got to go as a last resort. I'm sure it would be easier for someone not related to do the killing and no I would not want to be the one to do it, but I saw the movie too and I know what happens. No one can truly know how they would act unless they are in the situation with their lives at risk and know the terror they would be about to face.

    I feel guilty if I hit an animal with my car...even a squirrel.
    Type 6w5 sp/so/sx I think..I have not fully explored this and just discovered it.

    Well. If I have learned anything from this thread, is that I'm never getting in a cellar with 12 of you.

    The situation is hypothetical until the choice and the set situation has been made. I wouldn't kill the baby. Not in my interests. Being alive is not necessarily always in my personal interests also. Once the choice has been made I would enjoy the outcome of trying to kill a few nazi soldiers were they to find us. Me and two others stay up on ground floor hidden behind a few objects. The baby's cries could be a decoy for them to look towards a certain direction while we give them a good surprise from behind as they look down hopefully allowing us to steal a few guns in the process assuming we have no guns. It would have to be played out perfectly.

    I don't think you'd have a "personal interest" once you're dead.

    As great of a plan as that is. Nazi's don't "look", they just start shooting shit.

    So you would've killed the baby anyways.

    Oho! I now know something I might have in common with my dead self.

    Always about timing. Someone must move before the trigger is pulled. Requires fast paced action and wondrous movement of arm to neck styles.
