    I don't think I could because even squashing a bug might be sometimes difficult for me.

    But who knows what I am capable of when I get agry because I have tendency of being VERY temperamental....

    i would definitely kill someone if it was the only way i could think of to stop them from killing someone else (including myself of course).

    So, I had some fun picking all except for Absolutely not!

    I don't even have children, though. Oh well, Ni was thinking about the possible future! If I took the time and deep thoughtful care into making those carbon copies perfect---if anyone so much as thought to destroy my careful work (yes, I'd love them deeply too~), I'd slowly torture that fucker into a perpetual state of near death, while healing them and torturing them further. I'd never let them die. I'd psychologically fuck them up too by making them think I care for them and then break that trust slowly over the course of years. I'd turn them into a play thing, I'd-- Oh crap, I'll end it here!! If I could get away with it too, nothing in the Multiverse could stop me!

    Let's see. Self-defense, of course I'd do that. I've nearly killed someone who nearly killed me. The only thing stopping me was shock from a head injury. Even immediately afterwards I had more of an understanding of self-perservation beyond physical means, instead of seeking retribution. My head is throbbing now in remembrance, though. F-- I would've entirely been found innocent if I did kill this person. Sometimes I wish I did-- even though I knew I picked a lesser evil and that it wasn't only for myself. Next time, I hope it's someone completely unrelated to me so I won't care about killing them in the moment and assuming I'm not cowardly attacked in the dark either--!!

    That being said, I could easily do it in the moment if I found it necessary. I witness an attack on people and I instinctively rush to defend, that sort of thing. Or if someone close to me was killed within my sight, I'd react by trying not to kill but maiming the person enough.

    As for Other, can fantasising about killing people count? Because I kill on a somewhat daily or every other day basis, if so... In very vivid and creative ways too. Sometimes I have no control of my thoughts.... but I'd never carry them out. Alas, I'll likely never kill anyone, I sincerely hope I don't have to. (as I might seem psychotic at this point, I have to say it.. ).

    And I find it much better in not killing but prolonging the bastard's life through slow torture or ensuring they're somehow physically broken for life.

    Like most people (I'm guessing) I fantasize about killing people everyday. Usually when I'm on a quiet street late at night and there's only one other person there. Just to think if I kill that person, nobody would know for hours. I often read about serial killers, just to live vicariously through them. Sutcliffe and Onoprienko are my favourites for that.

    But though it depresses me to say it, I'll porbably never kill anyone in my entire life. That whole experience has been robbed from my ready hands by improvements in law enforcement and vague human interest in the lower classes, so if one went missing, someone would notice.

    CCTV, forensics, GPRS cell phones, computer systems and even fingerprinting have put a dampner on the business of killing. So of course I would kill someone if I was in danger or if someone I didn't dislike was in danger, but put me back in East End of London 1888, and I'd pick the prossies off like candy.

    i know, right?

    but i can't tell if he's serious, or if he just likes the attention.

    most likely both. at least, he definitely likes the attention.

    the FBI probably wouldn't be the right group seeing that he's in New Zealand

    I'm just glad that nobody's threatened to go all Aztec on someone and eat thier hearts!

    If killing the person would mean saving more lives. (or in the case of euthanasia saving his/her life as in it being too painful to live) then yes I'll do it.

    Legal consequences.... the buggers. Oh put me to jail! Kill me... whatever! I would prefer no torture though...

    Difficult question. I chose other, along with defending kids and self, so I'll explain what I mean by other. I'd kill someone who was about to hurt a friend, family member, or any other innocent and there was no other way to stop them. Given the choice between an innocent person or someone capable of hurting an innocent leaving this world, I'd have to go with the choice that favors the innocent, and kill the bad guy. Hopefully, it wouldn't be my job to clean up the mess. I might hesitate to pull the trigger if I knew that there would be mopping or digging involved.
