LMAO!!  But there's nothing like a bbq of long pork!


If I'm ever in a similar situation, my friends are welcome to eat my body if I die first. But, if they kill me because I, all of a sudden, look yummy to them, then I'll be pissed off and come back to haunt them with diarrhea and gas...not just regular gas, severe gas with stomach cramps.

yes i would want my companions to eat my body if i died before they did, and with or without their permission i would definitely do the same.
i'd have to be very very hungry, mind you, and there would have to be nothing else available to eat.

Another example of survival,with similarities,is the one of the survivors of a plane crash in,I think it was 1972,in the Andes.Many of the survivors perished in the extreme cold waiting to be rescued.The remaining survivors were faced with the dilemma of moral & ethical proportions.They were facing death through starvation.They were forced to accept that the only food available was the flesh of the other deceased members of the doomed flight.They were finally rescued months after the crash.Later,officials of the catholic church announced that,according to church doctrines,they had committed no sin by eating the flesh of the dead.

The thing is...dont humans 'go off' pretty quick? Id have thought unless kept chilled they'd be absolutely stinking after a few hours, all the gasses inside bloating them up too...

Mind you Ive often wondered if clowns taste funny...

If they did murder him to stay alive, I think it's time to start talking about banning fishermen.

it was -22 when they found the 2 survivors, so I doubt keeping their pals chilled would have been a problem...its Siberia and freezing there, even Hitler would not have been able to......................oh wait!

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

i first read the book, Alive, then saw the movie
i thought it was an incredible story of survival and the human condition. it was while reading the story that i realized that i too would have done the same.
