In any case, for some people, yes, eating human flesh would be cause for taking one's own life. Maybe I'm forgetting a piece, like the third companion was his son. I dunno. And though you or I might say, "He died so that I might live," others (such as this man) would be so horrified that they'd feel compelled to commit suicide.


If it was a son, then I could understand. That would make things more difficult.
And it isn't really "He died so that I might live" so much as "He died, so I might as well live." Killing him for food would certainly be difficult, but eating him after his death? Not really a problem.

Even if you don't introduce the extra bit about his son being the third companion, it's still a pretty personal matter. There's a big difference between "I just ate some human flesh" and "I just ate some human flesh that hours ago was my beloved wife."
Well, I would assume so, anyway. I've never been in this situation personally.

This reminds me of my quest to figure out what the most awesome thing is to do with my body after i die. Assuming I die young and in some kind of tragic accident, I'm thinking donating my body to cannibals would be sweet. What do you guys think? What would be a sweet thing to do with a corpse?

Also, I intend to have at least 3 or 4 practical jokes go off during my funeral/memorial written into my will for only TwoBuy to see (and carry out). I wouldn't want word to leak and people not be surprised. I suppose that the only other plan i have surrounding my death is that I demanded that my wife mourn for me 10 full minutes for each year we were together before she gets remarried.

What about you guys... anything interesting* going into your wills?

*being buried or cremated and having a nice service does not count as interesting

This is sort of deviating from the whole "puzzles" theme, but I either want a Viking style funeral, with feasting and carousing and a funeral pyre, or my body to be abandoned in the wilderness so that the animal scavengers can have a free meal (The possibility of using this to give animals a taste for human flesh has entered my mind, and the possibility of this leading to an uprising amuses me greatly.).

You mean you don't want your death to involve hostages? When I die it's going to be glorious.

I'm on top of a skyscraper, police helicopters coming in. I push the hostages off the side and then I jump off and shout at the top of my lungs,


"Catch me now, mother fuckers!"

nah, i'm looking for my corpse to be more hilarious. I think going out in a blaze of defiance is overdone. maybe i could be a prop in a Weekend at Bernie's remake.

So, like, having my head affixed to a jack-in-the-box so that it springs out every few minutes during the service?

Not my plan, but still.

My plan is to be buried in a gigantic mausoleum, at the heart of a devilish labyrinth that defies would-be grave robbers to plunder the treasures within. My body will be placed in one of twelve identical sarcophagi. Ten of the remaining eleven will be filled with spiders and booby-traps and curses. The twelfth will be filled with delicious candy.

Corpse-shaped candy?

I personally kinda liked the idea of being left exposed to the conditions in a giant open walled pit, and let the vultures rip the flesh from my cones. I hear that's what Zoroastrians do, and even though I'll be dead at the time, I'd totally want to do it.

How is it my typos are always carefully extracted and made fun of, when others usually get away with it? I sense selective taregting in this forum.Even though dialogues with AhmetXrocks kinda raised my suspiscions.
