Shopping spree?

The world has ostensibly ended. You are living in a post-apocalyptic nightmare. While scavenging for food and clothing and trying to avoid being flayed alive by robotic tennis balls of doom, you discover a corpse wearing the most gorgeous diamond and pearl necklace you have ever seen.

The woman is lying on her back holding two small children – both of whom are also long passed on – and a note is on her chest. Because you read the note you know that this is the place Mother chose as the resting place for her and her children because it was a place of fun and safety. You realize you are essentially standing in their own personal cemetery.

Do you take the necklace?

  1. Personally, I don't think I would. I can't really say why since I don't really know...

  2. I don't think I could ever rob a corpse of something materialistic. A weapon, sure. Food, probably. A necklace? Not likely. Now if it were in an abandoned store....hmm...

  3. I don't think could either. An abandoned store is different. But what if the item you wanted was in the hand of a corpse?

  4. If something I needed for survival was in the hand/pocket/backpack of a corpse I would take it. If I don't need it, the deceased can keep it.

    Looting abandoned stores, however? Oh yeah, sign me up!

  5. Well yeah, that's what I was saying - if it's something that I actually needed then I'd take it. If it was just jewelry, money, something not used to facilitate my survival - def not.
