I don't see a problem, sure it's weird and i wouldn't be going to that restaurant anytime soon..but as long as everything is consensual and people donating are screened first i fail to see why it is any ones business. If you don't like it don't go, don't try and dictate to other people based on what you deem appropriate, there is no victim in this. Anyone who thinks this shouldn't be allowed is nothing but a tyrant imo no matter how you sugar coat it.

Can you imagine that someone in the vicinity of the restaurant gets irritated, shouts "Bite me"....and the cook takes action based on "presumed consent"???

It's voluntary, I see no problems here.

A cow is not a higher vibrational being. It is not a sentient being.

I know where the world is going. It is separating the wheat from the chaff. Those that think but do not feel the difference between right and wrong or ignore that feeling are being weeded out from those that do feel.

hotbakedtater this is just some advice. You did a thread the other day that made me go...?!?!?!?!? You may think about a self evaluation and not jump on the do anything bandwagon. The revealing is here. It is now and one can easily take the wrong path.

There is no room for the light in the darkness of eating your own species.

Having seen plenty of human meat, it all looks like it would be tough, with too much connective tissue. Humans have all their fat under the skin. Give me a nice, tender, marbled, T-bone from a bovine. That being said, I don't want to eat ANYTHING that is a primate or looks like one.

I was hoping this was a publicity stunt, but...wasn't there a case in Germany a few years ago of some guy putting an advertisement involving cannibalism? Here it is: German cannibal tells of fantasy

I hope we never get in another war with these people!

I'd try it. if i were traveling in europe anywhere near Berlin, I'd make a special trip just to eat at that restaurant. We eat other animals, and they don't want to die. But these people are donating their bodies specifically to be eaten.
I do have two question...
Why do they need a surgeon to harvest the muscle tissue?
And... has anyone told Andrew Zimmerman about this yet?
Now THERE'S a show I'd like to see.

Eating cow, chicken, and pigs are the same as eating a human. Its all flesh, scabs, dirt, sweat, nerves,.. its all just dead cells.

thankfully for me;
I don't eat any meat. I prefer not to pollute my body.

Be thankful you live in a modern globalized world then, otherwise you would need to 'pollute' your body...and considering for the vast, vast majority of our time on earth we have eaten meat im sure the body can handle it just fine.

riiiiiiiiiiight no problem at all!

Well that is until you get those people who REALLY start craving it right......you know, like sushi lovers.........then next thing you know they want to make their own...........

Then it looks like its your grandmother or sister, or kid brother on the menu for them that night..........

I love how peoples false sense of "moral high ground" somehow also makes them immune to logic and consequences.......


There is a HUGE difference between consuming donated meat and murdering someone for their meat.

There is a big gap in your "logic". No worries though, afterall it is easier for me to see that from way up here on my moral high ground.


Really though, can you explain logically (that means no emotionally charged & fallacious rhetoric), why consensually donated human meat is morally repugnant - but non-consensual farmed meats are acceptable?

Animals clearly fight for survival, so by killing them their will is being infringed upon. Conversely, a human who wants to be eaten would be having their will fulfilled.

Cannibalism is a long time way of life for many nations and I for one see nothing wrong with it as a source of protein when no other source is readily available.


Well, at least in one culture, (the Fore of New Guinea) cannibalism has the unfortunate habit of passing along a prion disease, (like Mad Cow or Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease for those who arent up on prions) called Kuru, which has some rather nasty consequences.

It is possible that our widespread aversion to eating the flesh of our own kind is rooted in some underlying negative consequence for doing so, as humans are not the only species that does avoid cannibalism when possible. Especially since it seems to be cannibalism (among the cows, thanks to our cost saving program of feeding them to their own kind) that spread mad cow disease also.

However, in terms of this restaurant, if it isnt against the law, and people want to donate their bodies for food, I dont see why it would be my business. Its a lot more humane than stealing someone's life in order to eat them. (As we do with animals.) Its gross, I dont want to try "Long Pig" myself, but what happens between consenting adults really isnt my business, in my opinion.

The minute any group of cannibals decides to go off looking for unwilling dinners, I say we blast them straight to hell. But as long as they are doing it the way they propose, its creepy and gross, but whatever floats their boat. If they do come down with some prion disease, they would be doing us all a favor by acting as a test group in a sense, and allowing us the possibility of learning more about the connection between cannibalism and prions.

The odd thing is that they will probably be flooded with people excitedly willing to donate body parts. There is a whole group of people out there with a deep seated mental desire to amputate/remove body parts.

I can only imagine how inticing it may be for them to have the body parts they so desire, removed, and then to be consumed after being prepared by a talented chef.

I can see hands, arms, legs, feet, etc prepared and kept in their original discernable forms in order to intensify the whole experience.

The issue here will be if we allow people with cannibalistic or amuptation fetishes to pursue these desires in such a way. As many would label such as having a mental disease.

I say let them pursue their amputation fetishes. You know, natural selection works. If people have yearnings, longings, and behaviors that are naturally self destructive, and cannot be treated, (And amputation urges are incredibly resistant to treatment) let them do what they need to do. Nature will take its course.

Its not societies job to protect everyone from themselves. Its not possible, in the first place, and it runs against nature in the second.

If "animals" aren't made in God's image then why do nearly ALL mammals have nearly the exact skeletal system?

Humans aren't special, we are just animals. We are primates, get over it.

I guess in theory there really isnt a difference, meat is meat.......

The problem that you run into is , you arent thinking past that......
The more you condition people to accept things and make them "ok" the more "socially acceptable" you make things, the worse things get.

My example in my last post was pretty clear.....youll get people who start to crave this and start taking things into their own hands.......then you arent getting consent anymore, youre getting twisted murders with people being eatn.

People need to stop thinking short term,and only about the pleasure thats brought to them "right now", this instant gratification society, this twisted moral compas, thats why this whole world is in such the mess it is today

It's my belief that trying to control people always fails - in the long term.

This is why although I am vegan, I am not one of those militant vegans who tries to enforce their beliefs on others. I learned long ago that there are many things about myself I have no direct control over, so to try and control the actions and beliefs of others would be beyond hypocritical.

I do my best to change the world by modeling what I believe to be righteous, while respecting others' freedom.

While I agree on a personal level that cannibalism is gross, I despise authority being enforced in the name of morality when there are no real victims of said action.

Your slippery slope argument that by eating human flesh people will become crazed cannibalistic murderers doesn't resonate with me. For instance, it was argued that the proliferation of pornographic materials would increase incidents of rape - however from what I have heard the opposite is true.

I think it stands to reason that the availability of legal human flesh could actually lower the cannibalistic murder rate. I don't think this is true, because those who would murder and consume their victims are most likely incredibly unstable to begin with, however the argument is there.

Actually human flesh is from my understanding similar to pork, thus it has been called “long pork”.



Obviously human flesh is far from being kosher.
I've known a few that chewed their cud, at least they appeared to anyway, but they didn't have hooves.

If human meat is similar to pork and if the good book says pork should not be consumed then humans shalt not be on any menu.

All you would-or-would not-be-cannibals have fallen for a
shameless PR-gag !

The restaurant www.flime-restaurante.com... will most
probably never open, because they have not given an address
yet, although they were to open soon.

The business would be financially uneconomic with hospital
costs coming on top of the menu.

Any surgeon would lose his licence, if he amputated healthy
limbs. It would be against their Hypocrates oath.

The published menu looks perfectly like Brasilian cuisine
with no indication of human meat.

The biggest obstacle would, however, be the rigorous
regulations for hygiene, the control of which would take
place within the line of certified professionals.

If you cannot serve cats and dogs in restaurants, certainly
you cannot serve human limbs in Germany.

As a German I tell you that Germany is an over-regulated
country. So that kind of barbarism will not take place.

That Brisilian idiot is damaging my country´s reputation.
They should send him home to the Waris in the Amazon
jungle.

It may be barbarism, but considering there is no victim in the whole situation why should your opinion of what certain people want to do stop them from doing so? If the people who want to do this were infringing on anothers rights i would be against it...but they would not be. So why should it not be allowed exactly? And really this topic and my post is not so much about this restaurant but the broader issues regarding people infringing on the rights of consenting adults doing no one any harm or infringing on other peoples rights.
