Would you resort to cannibalism if there was no food left?

What if you crashed on an island with 10 others and the food ran out. Would you eat your own kind to save yourself?

  • History shows that most people do under extreme circumstances. Our will to survive overwhelms some of our otherwise deep moral convictions. The ones who do cannibalize survive and the ones who don't die. The longer you're alive the more likely you could be found and be rescued.

    Right now I'll stick to my moral convictions and say NO but if my family was starving to death and there was a way to keep them alive? I don't know what I'd do. Life is so damn fragile.

    • would if there was no berries or anything left? I am pretty sure humans can't digest grass we don't have the enzymes to do it cows can cause they have 4 stomachs.

  • If it has vegetation, I would use some sharpen some tree branches and try to spear fishes in the ocean or just live off of the vegetation.

    I would probably rather die than kill any of the others just for my survival.

    It's different if someone comes after me and I "just so happen" to bite their ear off in self-defense.

      *I would sharpen some tree branches..."

  • probably. I've been in several life and death situations and the instinct to survive overrides your thinking.

  • No, I would rather eat grass or soil and not resort to cannibalism. I would prefer eating rocks, or insects. Now don't tell me there are none. Insects are the most invasice species that spread to vast areas except poles.

  • Yup, but I'd try to work out some kind of order and fairness. Some kind of system to decide who dies that is fair to everyone. Probably a basic lottery system. However, if there was a health care professional among the group members they would be exempt until the last round when there are only two left.
