    Cool Another Zombie themed thread

    You're in a post apocalyptic zombie situation (or some other sort of biological disaster). You find a Zombie wearing the watch you always wanted. Super rare, super expensive etc. Doesn't matter why you couldn't have it before, it's right there. But there's a catch:

    1. Do you attempt to kill a zombie to get your watch?
    2. Would you only take it if the zombie is already dead?
    3. Is the contamination risk too great?
    4. Is there some limit to how far you'll go that isn't listed here?

    Eh, if there are zombies, then I'll find whatever is left of my family, commandeer a plane or a sailboat, and find the nearest desolate tropical island and settle down.

    Screw the watches.

    Shot to the head, the zombie is dead, and I'd grab the watch in a flash. The zombie didn't buy it anyway. Scrubbing Bubbles should handle the decontamination just fine (works with razors, has about the same active ingredients in it as Barbicide).
    Regards, T Bone

    Even a broken watch shows correct time once or twice a day. I ought to know, I have a few!

    I can honestly say I didn't know that.

    I'll do anything for an Invicta.

    Yup...that's a shot. The more things change, the more they stay the same...

    I wouldn't hesitate to kill the zombie for it.

    The bigger issue here is how do I get the watch serviced when it's due for one? Are watch technicians equipped to survive a zombie apocalypse?
