Vampires are immortal, which means the only way to kill them is…

  • A silver bullet
  • A stake through their heart
  • Bright light
  • Garlic
  • Holy water
  • Holy wafers sewn in their mouth (Update 2015-11-23)
  • A chainsaw
  • Cutting their supply of blood
  • The crow of a rooster
  • Water
  • Fire
  • Magic
  • In their bat form
  • By accident
  • Killing their elders first
  • Making them pop culture icons (Update 2011-03-22: added this, thank you for the idea, apl)

Update 2015-02-11: see SMBC comic about trolls and sunlight.

    Those folks are so cool (or hot even). Why do you want to kill them?

[LanX]: Yeah option a doesn't go into history
[LanX]: probably I need to teach the app to restart after C-c Kill
[Corion]: LanX: Maybe have an infinite-loop cmd file? Much easier than trying to manage that from within Perl IMO
[Corion]: Alternatively, relaunch the application from cron (or a Windows cron) every minute
[LanX]: will try infinite loop ...
[Corion]: :START ... goto START
[LanX]: oh .bat you mean?
[LanX]: obscure cult ...
[Corion]: LanX: cmd.exe is just another way to launch Perl
[LanX]: I know its a cult... and I repent it every time
