Watching a programme last night somehow got me thinking about this....God knows how!
Anyway I'm going to approach a subject that is considered one of the ultimate taboo's; cannibalism
If faced with an extreme survival situation, something like a global catastrophy or the stero typical stranded situation; jungles, mountains etc.
Could you or Would you resort to eating your fellow man?
If the answer is no, for the purposes of this thread, you are 80% likley to die yourself, leaving a 20% very very slim chance of survival.
If the answer was yes, who and how would you eat:
Male or Female?
Young or old?
Would you only eat the dead and risk disease etc?
Would you eat the living if so how do you decide who to eat?
Would you hunt fellow man/woman, if so how?
How would you cook and prepare your fellow man?
Would you know how cook and prepare your fellow man?
How would you prevent yourself becoming someones dinner or would you offer yourself?
I know this is a bit of a freaky subject but it's not like it hasn't happened in the past....just thinking back to that plane crash in the Andes....
There is also strong evidence that our ancestors regularly resorted to cannibalism.
This is a serious post posing a serious hypothetical question.... Just wondering if anyone else has thought about this topic should the worst ever
All responses thanked in advance
If this topic has been discussed before then could someone kindly direct me to the thread.
