not into killing other people - who determines who goes first, etc. is a fucked up process I would refuse to participate in.

i wrote a ten-minute play about cannibalism in lol college.

the central question that i have, as a skinny dude, is whether or not i'd be more likely to be eaten first or less likely. on one hand, i would be skinny and weak in the first place and when instincts turned primal and angry burly dudes started flashing their canines at each other, i'd probably go down quickly. on the other hand, no one would want to eat me because it would be all bony.

I think the answer to your question, ZS, turns on whether we're eating people who die naturally (in which case you'd get et) or killing people to eat them (in which case I would).

Crazy thing is that they prob didn't need to eat human flesh. America's coastline was a bonanza of naturally available foods: ocean and freshwater fish, shellfish, game and gamebirds, but also scavengable stuff like mushrooms, berries, kelp. The colonists were highly suspicious of such foods and shockingly ignorant of most survival skills.

Was reading about mass cannibalism during the Bolshevik grain requisition Povolzhye famine in '21. The more morally defensible cannibals rationalised eating the dead to survive, but fucking cannibal cafeterias run by human hunters, profiteering during a famine is too much to take. I'd guess similar grotesqueness occurred during Mao's great leap forward as well.

The stealing of corpses from cemeteries became so common that in many regions armed guards had to be posted on their gates. Hunting and killing people for their flesh was also a common phenomenon. In the town of Pugachev it was dangerous for children to go out after dark since there were known to be bands of cannibals and traders who killed them to eat or sell their tender flesh. In the Novouzensk region there were bands of children who killed adults for their meat...

Moreover, the craving for human flesh which starving people can easily develop once they have eaten it was not peculiar to any social class. Hungry doctors often succumbed to eating it after long spells of relief work in the famine region, and they too stated that the worst part of the experience was "the insuperable and uncomfortable craving" which they had acquired for human flesh.

Well, once you've killed and eaten a human being, seeing all those people just walking around has to be maddening, like those old cartoons where the starving man on the raft floating mid-ocean imagines the guy on the raft with him's head turning into a roast turkey or whatever...

I love that old cartoon sight gag, it is brutal and funny at the same time.

I like the South Park episode where all the adults get snowed in and they resort to cannibalism _that night_
