Cannibalism
#1
So if you were out in the woods and had no food, and no way to get any, and one of your party members kicked off this mortal coil, would you eat them?



Life or death, ya know, not just feeling a bit peckish.
As a member of Generation Y, I base my self-esteem entirely off of my post-counts on various forums, how many Xbox achievements I have, how many upvotes I get on Reddit, my torrent ratios, and how many people like my Facebook statuses. I mean, that's the way it's suppose to work........right?

UMMMM..long pig!



seriously, if I was going to die, I'd encourage the rest of my party to eat me as well.

Last resort only.

In my world, everyone's a pony and they all eat rainbows and poop butterflies.

Same here.



Did some mental preparation by reading [url="http://www.amazon.com/Contingency-Cannibalism-Superhardcore-Survivalisms-Little/dp/1581600259/ref=pd_bbs_sr_9?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1230920683&sr=8-9"]this[/url] and studying to not end up in having to resort to it.

I think it would depend on how much meat I would get off them for the work of butchering.....do they look nice and tender? Too fat or too old I think I would just go for bones for soup and eat the marrow.





A lot of things to consider.....but yeah like most of you if there was no other option....I think it would take a lot to find that situation, but I know there have been true survival cases where that was about it....eat or die choice, I will eat.

While my moral compass, at times, has often been askew, I can say that in this matter the answer is no...definitely no! Fluffy the cat, Phideaux the Cajun mutt.....fair game,...... but Ned the neighbor....gotta pass.

Plan ahead. Bring a machete.

Ummm ..... I don't........THINK......so......some hesitation....I'm not in the situation, my guts not rumbling, my neighbor Ned and members of my family are not dead yet... my gut feeling is NO....but????? We all die sometime...wouldn't want to encourage eating the dead cause how long is it gonna take before the living start feeding off the living? Your weakened, sickly, not yet dead, but the others gang up on you and kill you and eat you???? Damn sure I don't want to go there!
#11
(ewe) Not even an option. No.
We have the right to our opinion but not to the facts.
#12
It could be a slippery slope, depending on the condition of the world.....like I said before a lot of variables.....so you get by on a few meals from Ned....but then what? Are we assuming we only have to do it once and we are rescued?



I would hope any of you would feel free to eat me if you wanted IF it would keep you alive until you could be rescued...I am exceptionally lean and would probably taste good either BBQ'd or roasted, maybe even raw...



.....but I wouldn't want it to make you a mad dog killer with a taste for human flesh either....just more food for thought (pun intended)....there is a possibility you would develop a taste....yeah that is wrong, but it is possible.

Dave[/quote]



Have to differentiate here.



Fluffy or Phideaux are the first to go in an urban starvation/TSHTF situation. They will be actively trapped and/or killed,

if not by you then by somebody else.

No man-hunting is presupposed, just some well-preserved dead being eaten.



In other words, I'm not talking [url="http://www.trutv.com/library/crime/serial_killers/history/alfred_packer/index.html"]Alferd Packer[/url] style survival cannibalism, I'm talking [url="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Donner_Party"]Donner Party[/url].

Ned the neighbor gets support as that's the way to go. But what if he some day fails to show for sharing the heat of the

livingroom and you go and investigate only to find he's turned into a stiff? At first, you'll balk, but when the going really

gets tough, as in seeing your family members get weaker and weaker from starvation, you'll rationalize it like "Heck,

that's what Ned would have wanted me to do. He can't feel no pain no more and he'll be rejoicing up on his cloud in

Heaven for us good folks to be able to stay alive".



May sound cynical, but Antony Hopkins' line in "The Edge" holds a kernel of truth: "Many people in a survival situation

die because of shame". Shame of betraying their moral principles, shame of admitting they're wrong, shame of actually

being in that type of situation.



Well, my moral compass also says "thou shalt not kill", but anybody going for me is fair game.

All the others are safe, until the situation is really desperate and the soon-to-be-sustenance is already dead.



Hope that clears it up a little.

You can live for 3 Minutes without Air...

For 3 Hours without Shelter...

For 3 Days without Water...

For 3 Weeks without Food...

But you can't live at all without Faith!

Wisdom is the attribute that keeps you out of situations where you might need it.
