  • wouldn't pick you to be a judge either sonny jim

    besides it's you're...


    oh really rachel ? you'd let me die would you ? hmm a death threat ? you know thats not allowed on these forums ? even as a 'joke' ?

    i've just sent a pm to mod about that so i wonder if you'll get banned. since i was...

    maybe if you lived in the present with what ben had currently done and brought to the table which is not alot as cthulhu put it earlier, you'd realise that waiting for ben to change could take a long time ASSUMING you and the group could survive long enough to turn a boy in to a man..
  • everybody should do as they want to be done by.

    So if you were an old man with a heart condition that had just collapsed because of a heart attack, and you were locked in a room (in the zombie apocalypse) with your daughter a little girl and two men, and one of the men has a family in immanent danger.

    what would you want? would you:
    A) want everybody to risk their life in a nearly impossible attempt to revive you (risking turning into a zombie and killing everybody)

    B) want to be taken out, so that you don't risk killing your daughter and the other people

    from the way i saw the situation i would pick B

    in the ben situation if you were depressed because everything you did just kept going wrong and you said to one of the others that everybody would be better off if you were dead.

    of the two choices:
    A) the guy agrees and drops you from a bell tower
    B) he disagrees and pulls you up

    i would hope B happens

    so the way i see it is that the most human thing to do is to do only do things you would pick to happen to you if the roles of the situation were reversed.
    obviously everybody would have their own opinion on what they would want if the roles were reversed, but it would only be truly bad things that most people would agree would be a bad thing to happen to them
  • Oh, but you've been arguing 'till you're blue in the face, on several occasions that refusing to help someone who needs it, is not the same as murdering. :) Also it's permissible if the person in questions is detriment to the group, so of course, so I would be listening to your wishes, and would be putting the needs of the group first. Thirdly, it is not a threat. To yet again refer to, and quote someone who thinks of themselves as oh so intelligent,
    "so now putting words in my mouth eh ? bad form.."

    Btw, I don't think many arguments have been won by "your logic is bullshit". "you're stupid", "that's stupid" etc. Maybe you should work on your form.
  • Oh c'mon. The discussion should've stopped by post #87, stop arguing before it starts getting out of hand.
  • again another thinly disguised insult 'who thins/thinks as oh so intelligent'

    i did not put words in your mouth rach, that is how i perceived the comment and someone else pm'd me (thanks mal) about it so if others can see it it's isn't me who's to blame it is them for a failed attempt to circumvent the rules.

    thing is when have i refused help ? ben GAVE UP, when i have actually said i'm going to murder ben ?

    please tell me, as far as i know i have said why i wouldn't save him with reasons, to say murder shows premeditation, says i planned it, but i suppose cos he was at my mercy i chose the group over one boy, which is actually a morale decision in it's self like the needs of the many out weigh the few..
    hey rachel why so serious ?

    you speak of morals you speak of humanity and therefore by saying

    you'd leave me till last and then probably drop me/not save, pretty much nullifies the entire argument for saving ben..

    we know enough about ben through his actions, yet i am someone you don't know have never met, you think because of my way of commenting you know me ? and you'd just as easily condemn me ?

    but of course it's all down to not agreeing on something, i dunno whats more pathetic, the fact you seem to complain about me, say ignore me and yet here you again bitchin at me ?

    seriously rach give it up...
  • lol. Seriously, you have no idea what you're talking about. It's obvious from the way you keep referencing to things I haven't even said, and the way you say you haven't said something, even when I take your words and directly use/quote them. So yeah, no one would win a debate against you.

    no they are won on the proof of bens actions, not gonna say them cos i feel if you ain't understanding his death count by now, you never will.

    i guess i got you mixed up with evin and sonny sorry about that, kinda hard when you 3 are all saying the same things it all gets joined up..

    i have no idea what i'm talking about ??! i played the game, like you must of done? are you honestly telling me ben has been a hero ? a man of action a man of amazing survival skills ? has laughed in the face of a rotting walker ? SERIOUSLY ?! wow rach omg wow..this is from a 'woman' who thought the station wagon we looted belonged to campman in ep2 ffs..LMFAO...

    viser yeah i hear ya
  • If we left everyone who's killed, or caused a death/s (whether directly or however indirectly). There wouldn't be many left. Not even little Clem would be innocent.

    yeah and?

    sounds like ben doesn't it ?

    clem would of found the boat anyway upon exploring the garage, regardless of ben.

    hey you're honour i rest my case, on second thought,

    fuck it i'm done
  • That wasn't an argument for saving Ben, that was just pointing a fact out. Few,if any of them are/would be innocent if we're going through indirect causes of deaths, as well as direct.

    What sounds like Ben? I know, I was referring to Ben being an indirect cause, that's a point you keep using :/
