Default Congo crowd kills man, eats him

So they set him on fire...how'd they know when he was...well."done"? Since they didn't go "low and slow", they assumed he was probably tender and done around medium/rare???

People eating people has been around for a long, long time.

Protein has wide parameters of acceptance by the human palate, but food is food when faced with the alternative.

Our own Donner group in the 1800s had no choice, but the tabu is there for very obvious reasons.

Would you eat somebody's remains if that was all that kept you from dying of starvation?

BENI Democratic Republic of Congo (Reuters) - A crowd stoned to death a young man in northeast Congo on Friday before burning and eating his corpse, witnesses said, in apparent revenge for a series of attacks by Ugandan rebels.

Guess they showed them.

Can't help with an IT.

If it's their way of keeping the USA out of their fights, then I'll furnish mustard to them if they want it.

What we as a country need to realize is that the rest of the world deals with their problems in ways that we don't understand. That doesn't make those methods wrong, in their context.

Long pig.

A friend of mine sailed for a bit with a european couple that were sailing around the world. He stumbled on an article a few years later they were kidnapped in the South Pacific by cannibals. The husband was killed and eaten, but the wife escaped.

Here is a link to one of the news stories on it.

Cannibalism as a form of "political protest" for lack of a better term, is not unknown in the Congo basin and some other places in Asia/Oceana. Funerary cannibalism still exists in places like New Guinea from what I have read. That is where you traditionally have seen the most occurrences of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease because the women and children eat the lesser cuts which include the brain. if cannibalism can be funny , there is a rather humorous fictional (obviously) biting Michael Crichton's book "State of Fear" where an obnoxious Hollywood global warmest type (clearly based on Martin Sheen) gets eaten by some cannibals in the Solomon Islands.

Wait, when is cannibalism not funny?

There are people who volunteer to be eaten by cannibals. A pretty famous story is that of Armin Meiwes. He essentially placed a craigslist ad looking for a willing victim. One came forward. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Armin_Meiwes

That's almost better than, we're sending in the snipers with .50 cals.

Psychological war fare at it's best.

All kidding aside, I sold a Navy aviator survival kit from WWII on Ebay, and the little handbook inside warned of cannibalism on some Pacific Islands.

Cool Story.
Just read into it a bit further as i hadnt heard about it. He certainly was killed and burnt on a fire but wasnt eaten. The man who killed him was a repressed gay. Homosexuality is accepted in the islands however this guy lived like a man (big , tough, fishing, hunting) not a lady boy. He raped the guy then shot him. then burnt his body. http://www.gq.com/news-politics/news...?currentPage=1

Shitty way to go.

Cannibal Wife- Honey, why did you think I wanted a subscription to People Magazine?
Husband- Oh I’m sorry dear I thought it was a cookbook.


Cannibal Husband-I don’t like your Mother.
Cannibal Wife- Try the potatoes.
