Think of this. You are stranded on an island with no food and no supplies. You have a friend with you. This friend dies during your time on the island. You won't be able to survive without some food very long. Will you eat him, or not? Personally, I would make an agreement with him right when we arrive on the island. It would be that we would try to make it through together, however if one of us dies then the other should eat their body to live. That's what I would want, anyway. I wouldn't want my friend to die too if I went first. I know it would be disgusting, but if you had no other option, what is there to do? Cannibalism is okay in this instance, because it is out of necessity. So what are all of your opinions on this subject?

I say I am going to die anyway, so why have the thought of eating my friend on my mind when I do die? That is just disturbing and disgusting in my opinion. I could not do it.

I don't see the point of living you don't keep to some sort of moral code that you can live with. I couldn't live with eating my friend (cept maybe Sheepeep, but that's not really cannibalism), so I just... wouldn't.

An interesting question, however even eating this person you would just be delaying the inevitable; better to die quickly, not having resorted to cannibalism, than to take a long time over it.

If I was stranded on an island with no supplies in the first place, I'd assume that if in the three days I'd have left I still haven't been rescued I hadn't been, then I'd probably not be rescued anyway. Therefore eating a person to stay alive would be rather pointless, as well as a bad thought to die with. . .The insides of a friend :uhm:

Yeah, I mean I couldn't just start ripping open my friend, cooking him, and eating him. Thinking about it makes me want to throw up honestly. I just couldn't do it. I would rather die, which would happen soon anyways. Honestly though, if I was stuck on an island, I would try to make due with what I have and survive. There are plenty of fish in the sea, literally. It is a matter of catching them. And it has to rain, so I could look for water. I know it would be harder then I think, but you have to at least try. Better then eating your friend. Edit-And just so I don't go crazy and eat my friend anyways, I would barry his body. I know how crazy people get when they are starved.

This reminds me of that movie (which was based on a true story) in which a plane crash-landed in Tibet somewhere in the mountains and the survivors had to eat the dead in order to survive. That's probably the only case in which I can imagine myself eating other human beings though...

Sure would if it meant me staying alive and possibly being rescued. Question is, where to get A1 steak sauce on the island! None of you can say you wouldn't, until you are in that situation, like it or not.

I know I wouldn't, because I would take precautions to make sure I don't. I would barry his body, or throw it into the ocean. The thought sickens me. I could not eat another human being.
