I guess we all would if we had to, no food for a week and you would eat anything..

I forget the exact details, but yes, a couple of them walked somehow

Two men from the plane crash walked through mountainous terrain and it took them 10 days to find someone to go get help. Another harrowing ordeal, no doubt,

Prions are another issue, those that lived my end up with Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease and that usually ends things quickly.

If I remember correctly, that only comes from eating the brain.

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor

I know what I would do. I would survive. That wouldn't change the hell of having to do it though.

Yeah well I think this depends on the situation. What sort of scenario are we talking about? Crashing on a mountain top in the winter? Seriously, it would have to be a very fkn bad situation to have no other food source than dead people. There are roots in the ground even during winter. Animals everywhere. 13.gif Even a doom scenario wouldn't include this corpse eating unless it was very freaking extreme circumstances as in the Andes plane crash.

Cattle got it when they started using cattle bones in their feed.
Nature kills off most species that eat one another, less insects and sand tiger sharks, polar bears, spiders, hamsters, chickens, tiger salamanders... forgive me if I left any other unclean animals off the list chuckle.gif

Interestingly, scientists now are not sure wheter or not the Donner party resorted to necro-cannabalism.

Quote:I’ve always felt that people make too much of the cannibalism, while simultaneously not really getting it. The idea of cannibalism may be so emotionally laden that people automatically layer their own fears and revulsion on it, but rationally, cannibalism was a terrible yet natural progression for members of the Donner Party in their determination to keep themselves and their families alive.

After 160 plus years, bone fragments of cattle and other animals were there to be found in the archeological digs because those bones had been cooked long periods of time to make them edible. The hard facts are that, after the Donners ate the cattle flesh, they scraped the hair off the hides, cut them into strips, and boiled them into a gluey pulp. Then they boiled and burned the bones, crumbling them into bits to eat. They ate mice, pet dogs, shoelaces... until there was nothing left but dead bodies.

Any cannibalism at the camps would have occurred at the very end of the pioneers’ entrapment, and would have lasted only a short period of time—until rescue or death, whichever came first. Because the period was short, the energy flagging, and the supply of dead humans plentiful, the even harder fact is that it’s highly unlikely that humans would have been processed the way the animals had been. Only the flesh would have been cooked, not the bones. Since uncooked bone disintegrates quickly in acidic soil, the absence of human bones may mean only that they weren’t there to be found in the digs.

Then why these headlines: Donners eat dog but not people...? Although the scientists aren’t claiming they’ve proven there was no cannibalism, reporters are writing on deadline with pressure to grab the attention of a media saturated public.

And, again, even some of the Donner party refused to eat - if we can believe eye witness testimony.

Quote:George R. Stewart wrote long ago that, in a sense, cannibalism is actually a minor part of the Donner saga, and he was right. Once you get over the initial horror and look at the larger picture, cannibalism was the culmination of a lengthy series of events and, for ALMOST all of the emigrants compelled to it, lasted a relatively short period of time.

Real Cannibals call humans "the long pig", becuase human flesh tastes like pork.
Think about that next time you feel like a pork chop

'Reminds me of a short story by Mark Twain about 'Cannibalism in the Cars' (that's what its name was.) where a group of well-to-do businessmen and politicians get stuck on a train during a heavy snow draft, and must eventually resort to cannibalism by voting for one of their fellows as the next meal.

It was quite a riot...
