Lets say you are stranded on an island with a few other people and no food. After several days without food one of the others dies...
Another person points out that if you don't eat something soon, you will die. What do you do?
I'd be looking around for a very big rock. That and lots of firewood.
Where's the BBQ sauce?
In the pirate world vernacular it is called eating "longpig." I'm guessing this was so they could hide what they did when it came to discussing it
with people who did not know, who might then later become one of their invited to dinner.
I would eat without a second thought. I would expect anyone els to do the same. Once people get to a certain point they snap and well, if I was
starving and there was nothing else to eat except a dead person...... thanks for dying first.
