I would NEVER eat a human to survive, and Ill tell you exactly why.
What the hell is going to happen when you run out of humans to eat.
If someone wanted to eat me, I would kill him in self defence and throw away his body.
Id figure out another way to survive, or die in peace knowing I havent eaten a human.
Also another VERY important thing is, that these humans you may think about killing and eating, might actually be more use to you ALIVE, team work can
do wonders in such situations, we could figure something out together, a way to survive.
So its possible that you could kill somebody to survive, but then later die of hunger, OR you could help each other, combine your minds and figure a
way to survive for many years.

well, instead of dying at the 4 week mark, what if the humans allowed you to live 2-3 however many weeks till you got rescued or found more food? are
you not thinking about that?
about killing the person that wanted to eat you and throwing away the body...well, clearly you would kill, just not to eat....makes little sense to me
but o well. what if you were in a crash like in the andes and say you had several broken ribs or a back injury?
how you gonna defend against someone wanting to eat you?
and for the record, i didn't invent these scenerios. they are all real, documented situations. was watching history channel where it was tlaking
about several situations where cannabilism happened and all these scenerios where in it...not the andes one though. i read it in a book
what is team work going to do for you on a dingy? all gonna paddle out in teh middle of the drink? where you going to get the energy for anything in
any of these situations past the couple day mark? no food, probably little water, hot or cold, possibly hurt....just how much energy does one have?
enough to hike the cold andes in elevation where you can't breathe? how you gonna shield your face from the freezing wind?
i'm thinking a rock to a dude takes much less energy. then, MAYBE you would have the energy to TRY something...
you have to think of all angles...sorry but the 'i would just find another way' deal don't hold water for me....
what if there simply is no other way??
it is also possible you could live off of someone long enough to find another food source or get rescued and live for many years, or team up, try with
limited energy to do something, then die...
sew, it goes both ways...
this is a there is NO OTHER OPTION....not i would find bugs...assume you tried to find bugs...get your head to the place where it is this or death.
that was th point of this thread....i mean, this is th esurvival forum.'
is that not the ultimeate(for lack of a better word) survival technique/test of strength/test of will...
eat or be eaten? kill or be killed?
yet thinking about it syas bad things about your character, especially since you have the butcher as an avater....
