Cannibalism: Are Humans Nutritious?
Oh ffs – he just basically calculated muscle mass of different size animals and then worked out caloric content. This article doesn’t even mention caloric expenditure to obtain the different food items, nor did they mention bunnies. Isn’t this also a study offering foundation for the benefits of team hunting (no way I’d be bringing down a single cow on my own, I’d need help) plus the need to either have a bunch of people eating the take or finding a way of preserving the meat? There’s that whole ‘2x as tall, 3x the volume’ rule of thumb to support the cost/benefit analysis of hunting bigger game – but then it’ll go to scavengers if you don’t get all the pieces eaten or preserved.
If I produce a study that suggests cannibalism started primitive people thinking about animal husbandry (after all, if you can eat your neighbor because he was lulled into a sense of safety because you kept feeding him, why not do the same with that cow – oops, it’s gone, maybe that cow) can I get an IG Nobel nomination?
Hey that is significantly easier than the guy who co won the prize in phsiology a few years back: https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/science/science-news/11872697/Scientist-who-let-bees-sting-him-on-25-different-body-parts-awarded-Ig-Nobel-prize.html
I’ll take his word for it that a bee sting on the nostril is worse than on the penis.

Absolutely, but stay away from conservatives. They always taste like shit for some reason.
Yeah. Have you ever tried to clean one of those bastards?
Have you ever busted open a bird to clean it? Talk about foul (heh). I don’t even want think about what busting those fat guts open would smell like.
As an expert in this area, I will say that humans are nutritious in certain areas. brains, for instance, are notably rich in all kinds of gooey important things. Dumb people will go for the goolies, which are all blood and weak muscle. if you like muscle meat, go for the arms and legs. And save the eyes and tongue for your pets…..
Human brains, rich in those Omega-3 fatty acids and kuru prions! On top of the world tomorrow! Collapsing in bouts of terminal hysterical laughter and seizures next year! Recommended.
