Could you "eat" a friend?

    In a life and death situation, your friend just died of starvation. There is no possibility of satisying your hunger but to eat his remains. You will, certainly die if you don't.
    Could you? Would you?

      nah, I couldn't - too many grissly bits.

      I have read that a dog wouldn't eat its owner, but a cat would

      Depends. How you cook 'em is the key to tastiness. The meat is already a little salty. Naturally so. A little pepper, garlic, onion, paprika, and a pinch of Cayenne. Ahhh! Perfection. I got the recipe from some guy in a saucer when I asked how best to serve my fellow man.

        Right on Sword...But I'm not into serving my fellow man when I'm starving...lol
        If the suns out, I guess I could start a fire with my glasses.
        Good thinkin'.   lol

    well, if you're sure they're already dead of natural causes - no disease or anything - I guess I wouldn't!  I've lived long enough, I don't need to struggle on with cannibalism on my record! I guess I could go ahead and die then, since my friend died, it won't be much longer til I'll go!

    Yep, I'd eat him. They say the backstraps are the best - just like on a deer. I'm not sure I could eat a family member, however.

    I'm the type who will do anything to survive, so I think I would eat my friend in that situation, although I can't imagine doing it at all.

    But it's a bit unfair: What would my friend do if the situation were reversed? I'm so skinny, there's not an ounce of meat on me. I'm afraid my freind would starve.

          Mega has written a Hub about them. Apparently, a Danish wood carver invented them in 1949, and toy companies started manufacturing them during the 50s and 60s.

    It's easy to say one thing or the other for now but who for sure knows what they would do. If under very extreme circumstances then I would say I might. There was an incident in the Andes where a plane carrying a team of college rugby players crashed and they were unable to be rescued. They only survived by eating their dead friends' frozen flesh. This incident was later made into a film, 'Alive.' To this very day, those who survived the ordeal do not talk about who they ate when asked about that subject.
