[quote name='Robbo' post='315130' date='Jan 2 2009, 01:17 PM']Mike,

Would you eat someone who was already dead...........in said situation


Not to preserve my own life.

Only if I needed to stay alive because close family needed me so they could survive. If my sprouting wings would surely cause them to die (not being able to make a shelter, gather firewood, make a fire, etc.), then I would eat with gusto. (nice guy that gusto)

When I get to heaven, I am going to ask God some questions: Why did you make women and men so different? Why did you create cucumbers (except for making pickles)? Why do older white men lose the hair on top and yet grow inordinate amounts of hair in their ears, on their eyebrows, and elsewhere? Why did you make spiders?

I might if there was no other food and s/he was healthy looking.

There are some people I most certainly would NOT eat! ::laughing:: <img src='http://www.hoodswoods.net/IVB/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/mellow.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':mellow:' />
[quote name='vector001' post='315101' date='Jan 2 2009, 02:37 PM']BTW - not to give up any of venerable-brother ddennis-dos's cooking secrets - but with him objecting and ostensibly against this practice and all - he catered marvelously at DirtTime 2008 and some of his bacon tasted a lot like a hippy i once bit....

....and one of our hippies disappeared.

as wolf-dog sez:


hehe...only you and the yote asked for Tapatio that day.....hmmmm...... <img src='http://www.hoodswoods.net/IVB/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/laugh.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':lol:' /> ...didn't say I didn't know how to cook-em...jest that I won't eat em......do you wish a red or a white with your langes Schwein mit kase und kartofflel salat?

Nope, not under any circumstances witll I endeavor to consume my fellow man......nor would I have much truck with those who do/did....regardless of the death being normal, accidental or induced......nope...can't and won't make that moral degeneration/rationalization......

Not passing judgement on anyone here....so don't take it that way.....merely saying that cannibalism is not a part of my survival kit.

Some mornings it's just not worth chewing through the leather straps!

I'd rather die as a man, than live as a beast. So I guess some of you will have chow for next week as well. <img src='http://www.hoodswoods.net/IVB/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/ph34r.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':ph34r:' />
Never say never. I pray that it never comes to that, but if there was no other way to continue to live, yeah I would.

Looking at cannibalism in a historical context, societies have given some form of forgiveness for people who had to resort to eating people who were killed through natural causes. The survivors of the Donner Party in 1847 later were looked upon as heroes in the settling of California. The survivors of the Uruguayan soccer team crash in the Andes were also applauded for their courage. They did what they had to do as would I.

The line is drawn when people actively hunt down others as food or make arrangements to have others killed for food. A good example is Alfred Packer in the Colorado Mountains or the situation that befell many Chinese during the Cultural Revolution. It was somewhat common for some families to trade children as food. At least you we're eating your own children .

Morally speaking I could not do the latter.
I would NOT hesitate at all in the dire, eat or die, situation. Doesn't matter if it is a neighbor from down the street or just some random person, if they kicked the bucket and I was left to starve and had NO OTHER OPTION for meat, then I can say YES I would do it. But ONLY if it came down to life or death. Would I need serious therapy afterwards? Probably, but at least I'd still be alive for my daughters sake.

You would like to start with the liver (raw) for the nutritional value. The heart would be next. Take time to cook the rest. Leave the spinal cord and brains alone, not good.[/quote]

(gently pointing at the word "cannibalism" in the title.)

eating raw liver, especially in a primate, will almost definitely put live pathogens in your body.

i have travelled all over the world, usually in an unfriendly manner and my formal combat medicine training includes parasitology- chances are that if you eat any brown-colored adult local's organ meat raw, you are going to get TB, Hepatitis, trichinosis, or HIV, or a combination of the same, in whole or in part, besides other things.

it ain't racist - it's just a valid observation.

and if you are going to critique, kindly READ FIRST; - (i am only saying this because i am starting to notice a tendency in some of the new folks, who are welcome here);

"legs, arms, heart, liver in that order, when on the run." - vector001, original post.

observing that quote for a moment, please consider;

legs and arms are faster to get to, with the tool i mentioned.

the heart is next, in a primate.

then the liver.

BTW try running with a freshly-eviscerated liver or soft organ.

you are going to lose it.

drying liver in the field is nearly impossible to do effectively as well, in the absence of a fire (being on the run/evading), compared to muscle.

also - i've held every human organ in my hands BTW - every single gawddam one - some still alive.

i know how they work - i've even MADE some of them work. have you?

you are also talking to probably the only white headhunter you will ever meet - i was officially adopted into the Isnag Headhunter Tribe of Apayao two years ago.

(you can still smell Japanese Soldiers on Isnag Elders' breath BTW. the Japs learned that the Isnag were cannibals too, a little too late for some of them before they decided to go around the region in WW 2.)

i danced with the shrunken heads and everything.

felt right at home.

an extremity is not as statistically dangerous nutritionally as an organ meat;

nor does a heart or liver, on any healthy mammal i can think of have as much nutritional value as an entire extremity (per your statement). - especially since you tourniquet the extremity before amputating - the nutrition is partly in the blood conserved, which is why the liver is nutritious primarily.

if you had a healthy liver that weighed as much as a human leg, i'd agree with you that the liver would be more nutritious.

quantity beats quality in this case.

more leg, less liver.

even the human kidneys, which contain twenty percent of the entire blood volume (when intact) have less blood in them than an entire leg.

urinary output is partly driven by the human thigh's work pumping blood through the kidneys - little-known fact.

you have the femoral arteries and all sorts of sponge-like tissue in the legs acting as a blood reservoir.

makes me hungry just talking about it.

and usually i am a wing man.


an amputated leg or arm can also be used to beat someone to death effectively.

i can only smother you with a soft organ, and ineffectively.

if any buddy else wants to try and correct me on my knowledge of cannibalism, they know just where they can bite me.

Hey! I don't know whether to be offended or relieved! <img src='http://www.hoodswoods.net/IVB/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/thumbsup.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':thumbsup:' />

Vec, you slay me.....figuratively of course...hey why you looking at my thighs?!
If you can't hear me, it's because I'm in parentheses.

Everywhere is within walking distance if you have the time.

I went to a restaurant that serves "breakfast at any time". So I ordered French Toast during the Renaissance.

But, could you pass me a drumstick, please...?

I have gone to find myself. If I get back before I return, keep me here!

Men are, that they might have joy.
Liver Eating Johnson, the original Jeremia Johnson, cut off his guard's entire leg for provisions as he made his escape from the Indians, the Blackfeet I think. Usually he just ate the livers of the Indians he killed, but this time he needed more than just a snack.

Nope, I don't believe in "survival at any cost".

I don't see a problem with survival without cannibalism.

I don't fly over the Andes, make long ocean voyages or even cross snow covered mountains in a wagon.

TEOTWAWKI? I don't care to live in a world devoid of plant & animal life, so it would be time for me to go home.

For the rest of you there will be plenty of corpses , make sure you cure the meat before it rots!

Taking out competition for the food that is left is another story & I don't believe in eating everything I kill. <img src='http://www.hoodswoods.net/IVB/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/2guns.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':2guns:' />
