    That’s just sick. I assume your comment was made in jest.

    But, it does bring a question to the surface. How would you cook it? It is my understanding that human flesh is very oily.

    Remember Louis and Clark? They had dietary issues from eating too much protein and not enough fruits and vegetables. It is my understanding Sacajawea was a big help in changing their diet.

    The history books tell us they had an air rifle as part of their provisions. Just a small bit of history trivia.

    just a quick reminder to the adventurous.
    the days of cannibalism are over.
    it would be a grave mistake.
    with no free-ranging humans.
    most are highly toxic and diseased :)
    one might as well be dining on sewer cockroaches...

    Dude, you have one twisted sense of humor.

    But, because of it you probably would make it through WW3 with less mental damage than someone like me.

    Sooner or later cannibals suffer from prion disease similar to mad cow disease.

    It is called Kuru and it's deadly. You're especially at risk if you eat brain or spine, but since nerves are everywhere, you'll remain at risk anyways. No ammount of cooking can prevent it and there's no cure.

    So, not only cannibalism is immoral, but it's also deadly.

    That's at least three posts on cannibalism. @Smiling beat me to it but yes, there are a variety of long-term consequences for that solution. I'll chalk this up to the fantasy fun. The sobering reality is that the buffer between human civilization and widespread annihilation could be only a few weeks. I guess farmers, delivery drivers, grocery workers, etc. really are the unsung heroes of the modern age.

    Well aware of HSE (human spongiform encephalitis) and one of my bands has a song entitled Kuru

    Cannibalism is no more immoral than any other form of carnivorousness, but like eating shellfish or pork it's a taboo from the past that we really should abandon if we are to live sustainably

    Prion disease is like COVID-19- not as bad as the media wants you to believe. In fact, one is actually the antidote to the other

    So, are you saying that it should be socially acceptable and practiced as part of a normal lifestyle?

    Human history should've taught us that large scale war is a never ending cycle. There will be a WW111 and we will likely see it. I would want something heavy duty with at least decent corrosion resistance as I don't know where I'd get displaced too.

    Not sure if your reading of history is entirely accurate. I know it sounds counterintuitive but the trends show war is far less common than in almost all of history.

    Military spending generally does not reflect an expectation of massive clashes of nation states going at it.

    Ok, blah blah blah, globalization makes mass armed conflict much more unlikely due to interdependent needs of trade. Blah blah blah, small treasure draining skirmishes with long lasting economic and political fallout orchestrated or at least funded/supported by our adversaries in a new version of cold war. Yada Yada yada, we actually live in one of the most peaceful periods in history.

    Coin toss: Samatchet or shark-exploding ballistic knife. And Frank's red-hot on my people burgers please.

    There is one thing we can rely on as fact, the folks manufacturing and dealing weapons won't pick sides and the people organising it all will never be exposed to to any form of discomfort or violence.
