Posted:Human meat?

The other meat thread got me thinkin... Am I the only one who would eat human meat if given the chance? Am I a bad person or crazy for not finding this thought sickening?

Ill even make it easier. The human died of natural causes and before dying consented to being cooked and eaten. You dont know and never met the person. The meat has been cooked and seasoned and smells good. You are hungry and the nearest McDonalds is 20 miles away. Do you eat it?

No, I wouldn't.

But if the nearest source of food was 200 miles away and I didn't have any transport other than my legs, I'd seriously consider it.

although if i had a car, i'd prefer going to McDonalds cuz i'm rather addicted to french fries and despite the fact that i'm none too fond of McDonalds, french fries are french fries... biggrin

Posted:french fries

actually if you read the book mentioned in the other thread you'll know that they arn't. McDonalds had a big problem when they were forced to stop frying in beef tallow and use vegetable oil, because the taste wasn't the same. So although they are now potatoe cooked in vegetable oil, they also contain flavourings. Because they do not want companies to copy their flavourings and spend millions developing them, they don't give out any info about them. It is highly probable that their fries contain meat. Taken from the mcdonalds website:

Q: Are any of McDonald's foods considered vegetarian?

A:
McDonald's does not represent any of their foods as being vegetarian.

Posted:Throwing a hypothetical situation at myself..

A doctor says "Sorry NYC, there's no way we can reattatch your leg after your horrible accident BUT we can perserve it and offer you the meat from it to do with as you please.."

I might eat my leg. I dunno. Certainly for survivial, but maybe even just for kicks.

I think that eating someone else is way more disrespectful. Something about the fact that they are dead and have no control over their remains seems sacreligious.

Though I must admit, I'd have NO idea how to prepare it. Or even what it'd look like cooked.

I guess that'd be one of he cool things about having a clone. If you got hungry you could always just eat him. smile

If that was me i would cook me and eat me.Hmmmmm? But that would bring up the Question of when i first tasted myself would i say"Damn,I taste sexy!"



That and i think if the person died of natual causes they would probably be old and tough and a little hard to chew. So if someone was killed in a rather clean manner and where about early to mid twenty's then yes i would eat them without an after thought.



Hey this is me and the way i think but i would not just go looking for some one to eat. just thougt i would make that clear.

Posted:Flid, from your web link that you provided, McDonald's French Fries have:

"Potatoes, partially hydrogenated soybean oil, natural flavor (beef source), dextrose, sodium acid pyrophosphate (to preserve natural color). Cooked in partially hydrogenated vegetable oils (may contain partially hydrogenated soybean oil and/or partially hydrogenated corn oil and/or partially hydrogenated canola oil and/or cottonseed oil and/or sunflower oil and/or corn oil). TBHQ and citric acid added to help preserve freshness. Dimethylpolysiloxane added as an anti-foaming agent."

So, no, it is not vegetarian.

Posted:They can always use something from your body, even if it's your skin for skin grafts or parts of your eyes. Personally I am outright offended by people who site ideas like "it wouldn't feel quite right" or "that's gross" for not donating. If you have religious reasons fine I respect that, but those other reasons are horribly disgusting. You have no idea just how far a human body can go these days, and how much further that "distance" could increase any day as they are constantly comeing up with breakthroughs.

Id also like to see it legal for people who are about to die and have organs that can be transplanted to be able to have the transplants done while they are alive (effectivly killing them) so the recipient can get the freshest organs possible.

The whole plascenta wasteing thing is horrible, Some women cook it up and eat it and others feed it to their ducks. It's nice the stupid bitches value "That special moment" over one or more burn victims well being.

Posted:Well, this is not a topic I've really ever seen brought up in a conversation... But upon due consideration, I've decided, sure, I'd eat human meat. I mean, we (I'm talking about people in general here) certainly have no qualms about putting other odd foods and substances into our bodies. And anyway, meat's meat, innit?

And about the organ thing: I'm a donor. After I'm dead, I'm certainly not doing anything with my organs. I mean, I personally think it's a little selfish to go, "No, I still want them when I'm dead. Even though I won't be needing them, I still want them,". Unless it goes against your religion or beliefs, in which case, of course I'm not opposed.

Suppose you died of some massive trauma and an organ was damaged. Or suppose you had something wrong with the organ (i.e. suppose you had kidney failure...wouldn't do to transplant someone with your kidneys).

Also, if you are HIV+ or HepC+, you would be disqualified to donate for transplant (or for anything, for that matter, other than maybe research).

I enter all of my schools food eating competitions, i got secondplace lastyear. Ontop of eating a buffet of "gross" food (and i use that word lightly because it enjoyed half of the stuff) we had to finish it off with half of a cows tounge. That's probibly the worst i've eaten, well.. besides the Pigs heart that was before it. But yes, i would consider eating the human meat. We've all chewed skin off of a blister, or the inside of our cheek, or bitten our nails... it's all the same.. only cooked.

Some people have religious beliefs that preclude use of their bodies after death.

Others may disagree with the whole idea of organ transplants and so refuse to donate on the grounds that they don't want to support it.

under those conditions, no.

But I would eat human meat if I was stranded like in the movie "Alive". Personally, I don't know why they waited 9 days to start eating the dead people.

Posted:My answer is no, because I don't believe it would be safe, especially neurologically, and since I became vegetarian, meat smells of faeces to me, so I couldn't physically eat it even if I wanted to.

And Astar, when I gave birth, I wasn't allowed my placenta or told what would be done to it (not that I would have eaten or buried it!) Found out from a sign behind the receptionist at check-out which read 'Placenta bin collection: 3,30pm'. Maybe greater awareness of the placenta's potential is in order for both health trusts and mothers smile
