The Question Club
You're leading a group of 20 people. There's 2 safe havens within walking distance. The first route is completely safe, but the haven itself only holds 10 people maximum and it's in the middle of nowhere, meaning extra travel through dangerous areas for the rest of the group who can't fit. The second route can hold everybody, but the journey is considerably more risky, but the journey itself isn't as long. Which route do you take?
The first route. If I can guarrantee the safety of 10 people, then it's worth it. The rest can make their way to the other haven afterwards. It's important that half the group makes it
Route 2. Why put half the group through excess danger when the 21 of us can all make it to sanctuary with hopefully minimal losses
15 of you are left. The safe haven's good, but the food supply ran out. You'll have to venture out again. There's 4 groups of protective gear/weapons you can choose from. Which package of gear do you pick for your group?
Package 1 - 10 bats, 5 machetes, 1 gun
Package 2 - 7 machetes 3 bats, 2 guns
Package 3 - 8 guns, 2 machetes
Package 4 - 10 suits of full-body, lightweight, tear-proof protective armor, 5 bats
You all make it to the location where the food is. There's various barrels of food and you can take only one. Which barrel do you take for the group?
Barrel 1 - preserved foods, like jerky and dried fruits. Not much variety. It will last 3 months and have a shelf life of 6 months
Barrel 2 - canned goods of all kinds. Lots of variety. 1.5 months worth of food, but the shelf life is over a year and a half
Barrel 3 - military ration kits, old school. These are high-density but bland eats, good enough to substain you but not far from delicious. 4 months worth, with a shelf life of 3 years
Barrel 4 - loaded up with Twinkies, chips and other junk food. 2 months of eating, but it's not exactly the most healthy munchies. Shelf life of over a year
Barrel 5 & 6 - you get two barrels for this option. It's full of fresh vegetables and food. However, all of it is perishable. Enough for 400 meals. However, the shelf life is only 1 month before it begins to go bad
Lastly, one of your companions is a close friend, and he or she gets bitten on the hand by a zombie. Only you and this person know about it. Within 3 days, if the infection has spread, they will become a zombie themselves. As leader of the group, what do you do?
Let the friend stay with the group. I'll keep a close eye on him or her and if there's obvious physical changes, I'll banish my friend from the group
Apologize to my friend and kill him or her on the spot. It's the only safe thing to do
Practice some denial. Maybe the bite wasn't that deep and the infection won't spread. Hope and pray that nothing bad happens, but otherwise, do nothing
Banish my friend from the group. I can't risk the lives of the other 13 people. Sorry, buddy, but it's too much to sacrifice. I will give my friend a gun and a weapon so they have a chance of surviving on their own
The 2 of us leave the group. The rest can manage without us. I won't abandon my friend in their greatest hour of need
Tell the group what happened, and let one of them dispatch my friend. I don't have the heart to do the right thing
Using my machete, immediately hack off my friend's hand, and cauterize the wound and bandage it afterwards and hope that it works
Tie up my friend, leaving just the feet. We travel as normal and if my friend turns during these 3 days, he or she can't hurt anyone. If he or she doesn't turn, then they're not infected
