Sure, the guys on the rugby team in Alive that resorted to cannibalism had to do it. These guys did it for morbid fun.

Issei Sagawa haunts me still. I begged my teacher to allow me to do a project on him in law class, back in High school. While coming across the pictures was bad, the "Confession" is still vividly burned into my brain. Makes for a good conversation piece though.

"sorry you assume she must be unstable mentally for not planning her future as a worthless housewife."

I agree completely!
Planning her future as the next Aileen Wuornos will be much more worthwhile!

Ugggh, the Issei Sagawa guy creeps me out and I don`t like it at all that he can talk freely about what he did and do whatever he wants and it`s ok.

Meiwes and Brandes did nothing wrong. They both sought each other out, agreed on what to do and did just that. They were two consenting adults.

"Bernd" is a guy`s name you dumbass, so *he*, according to you, is the only one in the wrong. Are you drating kidding me? That person could have been mentally unstable, and subsequently coerced by that freak. He did nothing wrong? So as long as somebody consents, it`s okay to murder, and slice up a human being, and ingest it? That`s drated. Once somebody gets a taste of something like that (assuming they liked it), then they might get a little antsy when nobody is crazy enough to `consent`, and then just go on as they please.

You are what`s wrong with society.

antrophagus: And you won’t be the last, hopefully. I’ve already considered catching a young person from the street, but I would rather kill only those who want to be killed.

Right there he had no murderous intent what so ever. He thought about it but realized that is wrong but if someone is willing then what wrong has he done.

Armin Meiwes this guy did nothing wrong. He was very professional he posted an ad online and someone said yes. The only person in that did anything wrong was Bernd Juergen Brandes. She committed suicide, signs should have been present and help should have been seeked. This guy was falsely accused.

i actually have very strange connections to jeffrey dahmer. not only do i know someone who`s cousin was killed by him, but my girlfriend also thinks he`s the most interesting thing ever. but she`s really into that psychologically unhinged stuff. i also met someone who, i`m serious, lives in the neighborhood where ted bundy buried like three people.

Without bad there is no good. Pleasure is the absence of pain. All is good; your thinking, maybe not.

Well... at least that Armin Meiwes was pretty.... considerate, you could say? when people backed out, he didn`t kill them anyway.

No tolerance or acceptance of this sort of activity can be demonstrated by any society hoping to preserve it`s self. The only acceptable course of action can be swift if not immediate execution and disposal of such creatures for the same reason we must destroy a bear that has chosen to prey on humans.

The distinction being that at the very least, a bear does not act out of a sadistic mental disposition and should therefor be given consideration for acting within the scope of plausibility for it`s species.

ElDavo - Yes that happened. It also happens to be the basis for the song Mein Teil By Rammstein.. Little fun fact for you there :)

Disturbing to say the least, but I looked at the details for Armin Meiwes and found it acculy pritty funny. The last lines was as priceless as it was dam weird:

"He got as far as being hung up on the slaughter chamber`s meat hook, wrapped in clingfilm with labels pinned into his flesh denoting various cuts like steak, ham and bacon.

Meiwes said: "We called it off because it was so damn cold in there."

This can`t be accurate. There`s no way that someone would post an ad asking for people to volunteer to be eaten, and even less chance that someone would knowingly volunteer to be killed and eaten.

When the Africans ate the deceased, though, they did it because of custom, and it was a sign of respect to the dead. I`m not saying that makes it any less disgusting, but they had at least some reason, unlike these guys.

I thought that Vince Weiguang Li from the Canada bus beheading would be listed. Suppose that there`s a larger selection to draw from than I initially suspected. o_O

Very interesting article. Ive heard about such "cannibals" from Africa. Instead of burying the bodies of the recently deceased- they ate them.

Not necessarily morbid fun.. Some were doing it out of hunger and meat was expensive at the time. Some were just being efficient after killing their victims.. and what better way to get rif of the evidence than to eat it..
