    I read about this man who after a plane crash, opted to cannibalize other passengers in a bid to survive without food in his snowy surrounds, he was left distraught, so he says.

    My question is, would you do the same as this man or decide to starve until help arrives.

    Nobody's answer here will be valid because we're all comfortably sitting in front of a computer with food near us. Nobody knows how they will behave when put in a situation where you can either choose to starve to death (a long, painful process) or to resort to eating a human carcass.

    Why would you only do it when you feel desperate? 😎

    If there were corpses around and I saw them as my only means of survival, yes.

    I hope that I would starve.

    There are some things that I know I would not recover from, and eating another human being is probably one of them.

    My quality of life, for the rest of my life after an event like that doesn't bear thinking about...

    Probably... I would force myself too. There would be two choices : starve to death or eat a dead human body.

    I going to have to say probably. I'm not really in the situation at the moment to claim I'm 100 percent sure on it. When it comes to survival and my own life, yeah. I would do it. The only problem is how am I going to cook human flesh without getting myself sick? As morbid it as it soon, its survival. I wouldn't care about a person who is already dead and my life would be in danger. I fear death more than I fear cannibalism. Its the process of cutting, cooking, and cleaning that would worry me. Starving to death sounds like somewhat moral decision but if it really came to it I probably eat a dead body thinking about the possibility of coming home than the short term consequences.

    Eating a dead body sure sounds icky but hey at least there be a higher possibility I survive, right?

    It said corpses.

    To be honest I assume that before starving I would eat a corpse. Killing someone for food, that's a totally different story.

    I'm pretty sure most people would eat a dead body rather than starve to death.

    I don't mind pork...I wouldn't go out of my way to eat it, but I occasionally fancy a nice pork chop.

    Really I'm more of a fish person :yes:

    I'd like to say no, obviously. But honestly, if I were starving, and there were corpses, I might eat them, because I have no idea how desperate I would be right now as I'm waiting to leave for a meal. As long as I don't turn into a wendigo! But killing someone to eat them? I am certain I would never, ever do this.
