If it came down to it I guess I would. Although I would surely not enjoy it.

yes, I'm pretty sure that if that's the only way to survive you would eat anything, only hope there's some salt nearby.

I haven't read or seen 'Alive'. I'm not sure. I would definately not kill the person but if they had already died of starvation I might, it would all depend on the chances of me getting out of this situation alive. If there is absolutely no hope, then whats the point of keeping yourself alive for a couple of weeks.

Eating a dead dude is one thing...enjoying is quite another!!  Smile

And where would you start? I think I would start with the thighs, I would rather eat a dead bloke than a woman, it wouldn't seem right somehow to eat something that has brought me such pleasure, all males are potential enemies so I could handle that,

I would also go for the big muscle groups, like the back and the upper legs. And you're right, I wouldn't eat a woman.

Yeah, if they were already dead. Killing someone to eat them would be a bit trickier.

I don't think we can say we wouldn't unless we're in that situation - a desperate, life-or-death situation. So, I probably would.

OK so we've established that most of us probably would eat them.

So the next question is... assuming that you have a stove as well, do you cook them or eat them raw?

Why stop with just cooking on a stove top? as long as we've got a stove let's just say we have a frypan aswell, and assuming the victim is from a western country there's a better than average chance that there'd be some fat to cook with, so why not shallow fry the thigh steaks?

Personally I'd prefer to saute the victim and serve him with a side of heartbeet salad but unless you're entertaining that's a fair bit of trouble to go to for dinner, not to mention the mess you'd make  Wink

mate ... I will eat anything and everything that ain't nailed down .. seriously , it would be pretty unpleasant but if it is going to keep me alive then of course I would , hell , if it came to that I would probably even eat the airline meals - but only after I had finished off all the corpses  Wink ( just hope that I don't develop a taste for human flesh )

Would You Eat A Dead Dude To Survive?

No, never. And before the "never say never" crowd jumps in, I said NEVER. I have read many survival manuals and there is always something to eat. If the situation is as you quoted for the movie "Alive", decend to a lower altitude and there are tons of things available (berries grow very well at sub-alpine levels in almost all areas of the world).

The normal human body can be sustained for about 2 weeks without any food at all. Even the intake of tiny amounts of food can lengthen that to a month or more. A normal person can walk many hundreds of miles in one month, finding varied things to eat along the way and stocking up when one finds a source to do so. It all comes down to how determined you are. Eric Rudolph (serial bomber) sustained himself for 5 years on "acorns and salamanders". He ate crushed turkey bones for calcium.

Humans were on this planet long before McDonald's appeared and always have found something to eat, you just have to be smart about doing it.

There are a lot of other species that could be potential food sources on this planet more plentiful and nutritious that a human body. It would be past a last resort for me.

Which is why they did what they did.

Just like folks from Colorado know about Alferd Packer...hell, there's a dining hall or something named after the late...ahem....gourmet.

Just another reason to choose your travel companions wisely, no?

I know you will probably not believe me, but I met once one of the survivors of the "alive" tragedy. My parents had a house for vacation in Uruguay, and we went to a Fishermen's village called Punta del Diablo. There was this young man, who was portrayed in the film (he was the one who lost his mother and sister). He was telling the story, and mentioned that he would have done it all over again if need be. I never forgot it, even though I was rather young at the time

My opinion?

I would never kill a human being to eat.

If it is already dead, in an emergency situation it becomes only a bunch of protein, fat and carbohydrates = a source of energy. I would eat the flesh without any problems.

Cheers

Alex

Personally, I would repulsed but as a matter of instinctual survival I probably would eat another human.

Is there a body part which you would call "off limits" no matter what happens? I would avoid any part of the head and it's contents and likely the genital area.
