The zombie bites you, now you're infected. What do you do?

Asked by Trillian (21106points) February 19th, 2010

So, I watched a movie remake yesterday, and I started thinking…If you’re with a group of people, there are zombies everywhere,in the midst of the fray you get bitten. You are trying to make it somewhere specific that will be safe and secure. You know that you’re going to be one of them, it’s just a matter of time. No one knows it yet. You are now a liability to the group, or at least a potential danger. You don’t want to eat your friends. On the other hand, the longer you stay, the better chance the group has of getting to safety. You either have special skills that are needed, or you’re simply another pair of eyes and you’re part of the weapons wielders holding off the oncoming hordes. Do you rat yourself out now and ask for a clean death? Do you stay and help as long as you can, knowing that you’ll never see the promised land yourself? What do you do?

Separate from the crowd and charge the zombies. Kill as many as I can that way when my transformation is complete I’ll be in the front of the lunch line.

I wouldn’t tell anyone. Hell, the world is going to shit anyway in this scenario, they’re destined to die. I may as well have a good last supper first zombie breakfast out of it all.

If you were to tell the whole group, you’re likely to be killed on the spot. So, I would tell one person that I trusted (assuming I was with people I knew before the Zombiepocalypse began) with the understanding that they would kill me right before I turned. Then, I would do everything I could to protect the group for as long as I could. When the time came, my trusted friend would shoot me.

What movie was it?

I would continue to help them get to safety and tell them to kill me as soon as I showed signs of my zombie transformation being complete.

I would also like to have sex one last time, so I would ask for volunteer(s)

@jeffgoldblumsprivatefacilities That’s pretty much what I’d do. It was Day of the Dead. The zombies can; Run, Leap, crawl on the ceiling, coordinate attacks, use deductive reasoning and follow through actions! The first one was really cheesy, this one scared the bejeeszus out of me.

kill myself

rotfl! I thought zombies sucked peoples’ brains – so I guess if I had just been bitten, I would not have much of a logical human brain left to make those decisions… and I wonder if killing someone who has just been bitten is easier than killing them after they have actually become a full-fledged zombie? Because then you would have to be decapitated…. Maybe you could order a great big garlic bread for your friends before you lost it!

First off i’d be glad I was just bitten & not torn to bits.Next i’d hope the bite wound was easily hidden from view.Finally in answer to your question, i’d stay loyal to the group until my time was up.

If I didn’t know the secret antidote for a Zombie bite (Hot Dr. Pepper), I would seperate myself from the group, and probably find a way to kill myself, by being beheaded.

No use in fighting it….I am the Zomby Woof!!

Three hundred years ago
I thought I might get some sleep
I stretched myself out onna antique bed
An’ my spirit did a midnite creep

You know I’ll never sleep no more

It seem to me that it just ain’t wise

Didja ever wake up in the mornin’
With a ZOMBY WOOF behind your eyes

Just about as evil as you could be

I’m that creature all the ladies been
Talkin’ about

They all seek for shelter when I come chargin’ out

Tellin’ you all the Zomby troof
Here I’m is, the ZOMBY WOOF

Tellin’ you all the Zomby troof
Here I’m is . . .

Reety-awrighty, he da ZOMBY WOOF
Reety-awrighty, he da ZOMBY WOOF

They said aw-reety
An’ they was aw-righty
An’ I was a Zomby for you, little lady . . .

I got a great big pointed fang
Which is my Zomby Toof
My right foot’s bigger than my other one is
Like a reg’lar Zomby Hoof
If I raid your dormitorium
Don’t try to remain aloof . . .

I might snatch you up screamin’ through the window all nekkid
An’ do it to you on the roof, don’t mess with the

I am about as evil as a Boogie Man can be!

Tellin’ you all the Zomby Troof
Here I’m is, the ZOMBY WOOF

Tellin’ you all the Zomby Troof
Here I’m is, the ZOMBY WOOF

Do you know how to do the Thriller dance? Now would be a good time to show off that skill, if so.

Berserker's avatar

@Vunessuh I’m there dude.

Well, I’d want to let em know, probably because I would freak and start begging for help even if I knew there was nothing that could be done.

(Right after the bite, if it was say on my leg or arm, I might attempt to sever the limb right away and save myself from infection, as some movies show to be possible. However, with nobody to help as this scenario suggests, I would probably end up killing myself in said process.)

Or at least, I’m guessing I wouldn’t be able to escape hysteria.

On the chance that I might however, I might also be scared to tell them, in case they freaked at the news and killed me right on the spot.

If all goes better than what I anticipate, I’d keep helping them survive until my end came, most preferably into a heroic charge at a huge pack of zombies, chainsaw roaring.
I could be used as well timed Kamikaze instrument.

I’d want to go out with a bang…. perhaps entice the Zombie horde away from my friends, taking a couple of grenades or a Claymore with me, then….. BANG!
