German cannibal 'not a murderer'[/size]
A self-confessed cannibal has described how he killed and partially ate a man he met via the internet in March 2001, at a retrial in Germany


Berlin man 'inspired by cannibal'[/size]
A Berlin man has gone on trial for murder in an attack which his lawyer says was inspired by the high-profile case of a cannibal killing in Germany.


Murky world of net cannibalism[/size]
The case of Armin Meiwes, the smiling, smartly dressed computer technician who killed and ate someone he met through the internet has shocked and fascinated Germany.


How about you, would you eat another human being? Even if it depended on your survival in an extreme situation?

Cannibalism is nothing new. Humans have been doing it as long as we've been here. Animals as well. It's a matter of survival. If I needed to eat and there was nothing around but another person.. I'd eat him/her.

Now people that practice Cannibalism as a matter of choice? Sorry, but that's just sick. :thumbsup:

If i was in a life or death situation and it was absolutely necessary for me to eat another human to survive, i suppose i would in the heat of the moment. However, not as a delicacy! :thumbsup:

That's a fairly difficult answer to come up with....

I'm pretty sure i'd eat the meat off of another human's body in a desperate situation if there was no other food around. I'd probably slice off some of the thighs first, then go for the stomach and pecs.

On the other hand, there are some more questions to be considered. Is it likely that you will be rescued in a few days? Is the person still alive? Would you have to kill them to get the food? Would you allow them to eat you if you died?

I'd probably snack on a corpse if it was already dead, but i don't know about KILLING someone to eat them.... I'd be more for the "if I die first, you can eat me. If you die first, i can eat you." sorta agreement...

When I was a student at the University of Colorado, I often ate at the Alfred E. (now corrected to G.) Packer cafeteria. At the time, most undergraduates thought they WERE eating human flesh.

Why would they name the cafeteria after him (Alfred G Packer) in the first place?

I am not going to judge him. And it is only a cafeteria but, I do not understand why he is honored even in this small way.
I suppose it is someone's idea of a joke. Albeit a lame one. IMHO :thumbsup:
It is just silly.

Well like if my plain crashed I would not wait for help. I know you can go a few days without food and within 3 or 4 days you can walk many miles. I saw a story on some peoples plane crashed and they had some food and water but they ate it over time then the people that died and were burried in the snow preserved they would eat.

I just could not do it. It turned out a couple days walk there was a place where they got help.

I just could not eat anyone make me sick....

here's the deal:

I would never eat another person unless like a I was on a plane and it crashed in the middle of a rain forest or desert and I knew that there were no places around for a long, long time. At that point i might eat a dead body that died in the plane crash. If there was no dead bodies i would not kill someone. that is the only way i would eat another person.

P.S. boopme when is your next BBQ I want to come (meal looks good) (just kidding i would never kill anyone to eat them)

ha! HUMAN, THE OTHER WHITE MEAT.....

or... this may be a little off the topic here, but maybe not so much... Have you ever seen the "starving people in africa" commercials on tv and wondered why in the heck they don't just chomp on those damn cows they lead around from place to place? I mean, I understand the whole religious aspect but come on! I think god would want them poor kids to eat the darn thing! I see the cows and tthey'relike quartered in my mind, rump roast, ribs, ssirlointip etc, etc.. *mouth watering* I honestly cant see a person in that mind diagram of mine, even under the worst of conditions.. Normally II'ma realist, like... dude, if II'mhungry, II'lleat.. but.. I just don't think I could. Now, ask me after I have not had a bite to eat in 7 days, my opinion may be a lil different. Lets just hope I never find out! Also, if I die first ya guys can eat me.. Not a problem.

In case the name is not familiar:

http://www.colorado.gov/dpa/doit/archives/packer.html


On July 17, 1989, James Starrs started an exhumation in an attempt to determine whether Packer was a liar and a murdering cannibal, or an honest, desperate man who had to eat to live.

Five small boulders marked the prospectors' graves. The exhumation by shovel and brush revealed five separate and distinct burials, "all cheek by jowl with one another," Starrs wrote.

Packer, in rambling, sometimes disjointed accounts, had contended his fellow prospectors had died by starvation and accident except George Noon, who had been shot by Shannon Wilson Bell. In other statements, Packer said he had been forced to shoot Bell.

The bones showed the men died violently, trying to defend themselves, and were defleshed by knife except for the skulls and pubic regions. The four skulls that were found bore marks of having been struck with a blunt object, such as the blade of a hatchet.

Defensive wounds were found on all but one skeleton - that of Israel Swan, who was the oldest and probably the weakest and could have been killed in his sleep.

Frank Miller and James Humphrey were "bludgeoned and butted into eternity by an ax," Starrs found.

Noon, only 18 or so, fought the hardest. His left humerus, or upper arm bone, was severed.

Bell was probably not shot. His bones show that he was acting to ward off blows from an assailant with a hatchet. His left humerus was almost cut through. He also was struck by a hatchet on his face and on top of the head.

"Packer's recital can most fairly be described as a cock-and-bull story," Starrs ascertained from his exhumation.

Starrs, with typical humor, said he also corrected one long-standing error regarding the student dining hall at the University of Colorado at Boulder, which was for years called the Alfred E. Packer cafeteria - "perhaps because of the quality of the food dished out there."

Starrs' research found that Packer's middle initial was G., not E. The school dutifully made the change.
