Wow, I was on reddit reading a post. OP was complaining how ppl were too hesitant to eat the dead until day7 in the Society of Snow. OP says he’d have started eating the dead by day2. DAY 2. Fucking insane. I mean, I totally understand having to resort to cannibalism for survival, but start eating them on day2? Ppl are fucking unreal. This is why I stay home and don’t want to be around people anymore- cuz ppl are fucking assholes/nuts!
1st off- the human body can survive ~30d without food. Only 3d without fresh water, but food the human body can do without a pretty long time. And TRUE hunger doesn’t set in for at least a few weeks. I’ve fasted before and the hardest was the first few hours/first day. After that, I didn’t feel hungry. I managed to go to day6, but only bc I was craving junky food like pizza and noodles lol. I could have actually gone longer if I had the disciple. And I’m only about 150 lbs so I’m relatively “small” compared to most Americans and have less fat to survive off of. Well I’m about 150lb+ now, that was like 4 years ago when I fasted 1 week, and I was “only” ~135lb back then (pre-pandemic).
So if a normal 135lb person can go 1 whole week without food no problem and not feel hungry, 2d is fucking unreal to start going to cannibalism!! OP sounded like an asshole. Like I totally get resorting to cannibalism if needed for survival, but based on OPs wording, some ppl just wanna kill or eat dead ppl just bc!! He’d be the one knifing/shivving someone in the back, after all the dead bodies have all been eaten.
Also, rescue sometimes takes a few days to arrive. OP would’ve eaten multiple bodies by the time rescue came.
Also, if food is in limited supply, you should RATION your food, not start chomping on what little food there is on DAY fucking 2. Fucking stupid.
Also, how pampered are you that you think being hungry at DAY2 requires EATING PEOPLE?! Like have ppl never gone 24hrs without eating? I guess not Americans! 1-2d without food is not a big deal. It really isn’t. I mean, your real worry should be dying of hypothermia, bc that can kill you in less than 2 hours, not hunger. Especially since the avg American is fat and has more than enough to survive on for at minimum 1-2 months. 1mo if avg size (~150lb). 2mo if overweight. 3mo if obese.
God forbid I have to get stuck with a group of ppl anywhere for any extended length of time. There’s always a few that’s ready to shiv you for no good reason other than the fact that they’re fucking homicidal/insane/assholes who just want an excuse to kill. And yes, based on OPs wording, he does sound like an ass. And eating what little food you have as soon as day2 is stupid af. And if this was real life, the little shit would’ve snuck and eaten some ppl starting day2, while others aren’t looking. You know some ppl would do this shit IRL.
