If you were in starvation in a post apocalyptic era would you eat other humans in order to survive if there was little to no food?

Why are people so keen to live in a post apocalyptic world? If you are living, and it is relativity cool, just less people, well fine, but if I have to kill and eat people, hell no. Just die already.
reece says2015-09-04T02:11:43.2074989Z
I probably wouldn't have the guts to do it anyway.
TBR says2015-09-04T02:14:01.6610489Z
I am sure most wouldn't reece. All machismo.
reece says2015-09-04T02:14:52.2840672Z
@TBR You never know until instinct kicks in.
PericIes says2015-09-04T02:15:32.0955224Z
You wouldn't even eat people who recently died of natural causes?
TBR says2015-09-04T02:16:25.4634645Z
I am sure most wouldn't reece. Its all masochism and movie fantasy. Again I ask, even if you could, why would you bother. Die in a nice way. Drive off a cliff, fly a plane with no instruction until you crash. Whatever, still beat suffering till you are eaten or until you have to kill the next guy to eat, right?
TBR says2015-09-04T02:18:22.0473253Z
@PericIes - Nope. Just find a good (exciting) way to die. Find the guy with some nice MDMA, and go out with a big smile on my face.
PericIes says2015-09-04T02:20:35.0650645Z
You must be much more of a people person than I am, because I wouldn't kill myself rather than live in a post-apocalyptic society. In fact, I'd probably be less likely to kill myself if survived the apocalypse.
TBR says2015-09-04T02:34:26.0043910Z
If you mean, social, no I am not. Not at all. I just don't see the value in living a horrid life for the sake of living. As I said above, if life was cool, just with less people, then fine. I have no interest in suffering to survive for... What I have no idea.
Mister_Man says2015-09-04T02:51:36.8277988Z
LOL I kind of agree with TBR. Maybe I'd get some good M and listen to some music while going on a zombie-killing last stand. And if there aren't zombies I'll just kill whatever then myself lol
TBR says2015-09-04T02:53:19.6792581Z
Yea, that works too Mister_Man. I just don't get the desire to keep it going and living the miserable life. Have a little fun, then check out.
Mister_Man says2015-09-04T02:58:34.9104788Z
Hahah yeah if there's nobody else on Earth or the only people want to kill you then I don't see any real reason either. Most forms of electricity would be done in a week and good food would be hard to come by. If there were lots of people who could go on hunts together, like cavemen before the ice age, maybe that would be alright as human interaction usually keeps our spirits up. But even then, that would get boring after a while. And I'm sure nobody would care about hygiene after a month. Bleh.
PericIes says2015-09-04T03:02:52.4925965Z
If only Amish people could read you guys basically calling their everyday life a living hell. XD
PericIes says2015-09-04T03:06:19.8219125Z
But yeah post-apocalyptic life isn't intrinsically miserable.
TBR says2015-09-04T03:09:53.8438001Z
I don't know of many cannibalistic Amish people. That is the life we are talking about right?
Mister_Man says2015-09-04T03:17:29.8957543Z
Yeah I don't know many Amish that eat other people. Maybe in Africa or uncivilized islands? LOLjk, I know but whatever they chose not to play gta5, let em not have fun ;) hahha
PericIes says2015-09-04T03:18:48.9882613Z
I thought that we had digressed into general post-apocalyptic-style life, aka no modern technology, etc.
Heterodox says2015-09-04T03:33:08.1169685Z
I would only kill and eat people that killed and ate other people. That way, I could still feel good about myself afterwards.
stargate says2015-09-04T10:34:13.3587532Z
I would rather die then turn on other humans and eat them. Once you eat another human I would consider you in human.
Otokage says2015-09-04T10:56:56.7138926Z
I wouldn't kill people, but eating them when they have died? Yep I would. And I would encourage others to eat me if that can save them from starvation. I don't really see the problem with this, why would anyone let a corpse rot instead of eating it?
stargate says2015-09-04T11:14:06.4296933Z
Becuase of morals and values, I also find it barbaric to eat other humans. I would rather eat something else or die.
TBR says2015-09-04T15:35:06.3224141Z
No power? Mea, I can get some solar working eventually. No more good drugs, well, that just sucks. Forced to eat people, time to see if I am right about god.
Emilrose says2015-09-04T19:51:51.7835433Z
You might get fat if you eat people.
Emilrose says2015-09-04T19:57:05.8039949Z
Additionally, this poll is so biased. Your only other option is 'starve' but if there is at least 'little food' as stated in the description, you may not actually have to. In all reality if this did happen, there would still be some normal things to eat.
Otokage says2015-09-04T19:58:08.5020025Z
People have strange values. They would rather eat the worms spawning from the corpse, than the corpse itself.
FreedomBeforeEquality says2015-09-04T19:59:51.9950561Z
I think id be more a fan of killing the people per-emptively to keep the apocalypse from coming about ... As a deterrent. If they would be fit to eat in life/death scenario then they probably arent worth their salt here today either. Probably actually driving us closer to a situation like that every day they are here living with us.
FreedomBeforeEquality says2015-09-04T20:00:57.0643245Z
Preemptively*

stargate says2015-09-04T20:33:55.8536378Z
I just would not do it.
krayracker says2015-09-04T20:35:02.9163809Z
Agreed, I don't think I could bring myself to eat other humans... Even if I didn't kill them.
Kreakin says2015-09-04T20:40:46.4995905Z
Bet you would change your mind if you were truly dying of hunger.
Kreakin says2015-09-04T20:42:13.4874209Z
Juicy steak, your brain would tell you it's just pork, it's just pork,it's just pork..
Kreakin says2015-09-04T20:44:14.9833361Z
You have to have men who are moral... And at the same time who are able to utilize their primordial instincts to kill without feeling... Without passion... Without judgment... Without judgment! Because it's judgment that defeats us.
Emilrose says2015-09-04T20:45:07.2602765Z
What if you're a vegetarian? You wouldn't even be adjusted to the taste of steak or other meats. I'd quite happily find other ways to survive.
Emilrose says2015-09-04T20:46:07.8054289Z
Wut.
stargate says2015-09-04T20:48:13.7343370Z
Sorry but no, I would rather fellow my morals, then live and eat other humans. I just could not bear myself to do it, or watch others do it.
Kreakin says2015-09-04T20:51:41.2951797Z
You're the next victim then, bet you taste nice grilled...
Emilrose says2015-09-04T20:52:55.8182905Z
Who?
stargate says2015-09-04T20:53:46.3440691Z
I would fight then, for honor. I wouldn't support eating humans. No matter why you are.
Kreakin says2015-09-04T20:56:36.2831433Z
But you will be weak from not eating..
krayracker says2015-09-04T20:57:28.3416781Z
You could find, plants...
stargate says2015-09-04T20:58:18.3318126Z
Farm, bred animals, if needed make a fort with military equipment
stargate says2015-09-04T20:59:04.0401056Z
Tanks, you never said they where all gone, who says I do not have oil.
Kreakin says2015-09-04T21:00:48.1828021Z
So will the predators grow strong on protein and carbs, you wither away eating grass, roots and the odd vegetable. May as well just end it at the start of the apocalypse there won't be any hippy communes to join : P
Emilrose says2015-09-04T21:10:00.5461649Z
@stargate, you don't have oil.
Kreakin says2015-09-04T21:14:30.3862837Z
Have you seen the film "Alive". Think everyone that survived did so by eating the dead passengers.
stargate says2015-09-04T21:40:14.7527434Z
Well if I didn't ave oil, just just a bunch of allies and guns. Make threads with barbed wire around my location. Build my forces up then slowly spread civilization back to where there is none.
stargate says2015-09-04T21:40:47.1541511Z
Plus there is a military base a little ways from where I live so ....
Mister_Man says2015-09-04T21:41:07.8062549Z
@Stargate - This is kind of late... But wouldn't the person who was eaten by another human be the one "in human"? Lololololol
PericIes says2015-09-04T21:42:28.7250473Z
^ I see what you did there.
stargate says2015-09-04T21:56:28.7761871Z
It's inhuman to eat another human, but Isee what you mean. Of I saw it I would give them two options join me, or die. Sense they had been living off of humans. If theydo. Or give up I would end them.That way peace could come back. Untie around a common cause, and a common flag.
stargate says2015-09-04T21:57:01.5207970Z
Tranches
Emilrose says2015-09-04T21:57:44.5417284Z
Rawrrrrr.
Huntress says2015-09-04T22:05:36.1524959Z
I sure hope not. I despised that cannibal group on The Walking Dead. They were worse than the zombies because they knew what they were doing.
SamStevens says2015-09-04T22:25:35.6285848Z
In a survival situation, meat is meat, as long as it is not diseased, parasite infected, or rotten.
stargate says2015-09-04T23:45:34.6405475Z
Sorry but I will not eat it, and I wil comdome anyone will will and dose.
Haroush says2015-09-05T02:10:18.4619944Z
There is too many PC people on here..
PericIes says2015-09-05T02:17:24.3480522Z
*are
TBR says2015-09-05T02:21:46.1145112Z
What on earth is PC about this conversation?
UtherPenguin says2015-09-05T02:23:13.4126708Z
@TBR Because you're not using enough racial slurs.
UtherPenguin says2015-09-05T02:23:23.6775366Z
@TBR Because you're not using enough racial slurs.
Mister_Man says2015-09-05T02:48:03.6122233Z
I only eat white meat lolololol
UtherPenguin says2015-09-05T02:49:45.0317927Z
@MisterMan White Privilege is being the piece of meat that gets eaten the most. #RacialEquality #SadFace:(
TBR says2015-09-05T02:51:23.4807045Z
@Mister_Man - I was SOOO going to say that.
TBR says2015-09-05T02:51:54.5249035Z
