I don't see "free range" as an option.

Wouldn't that be equivalent to the "Typical American diet" option for most people?

Nah, because they spend too much time cooped up. Driving around in the car doesn't count as wandering about outdoors.

Awesome, we can make them work until they're prime, then eat them!

Man, humans are so much better than cows...  Anyone know what they taste like?

We taste sort of like a sweet beef, but a bit tougher than steak, if you can comprehend that.

Not like pork.

Mellified Man

Quote
Mellified man was made thus: when an old man was reaching the end of his life and especially if he had reached a ripe old age, the local medicine man (or woman) would approach him with a proposition. Possibly offering some recompense to the family, possibly offering a reward in the hereafter, he would be invited to join an early Organ Donation Service with a difference. He would be instructed to give up food and start eating only honey. Honey for breakfast, honey for lunch, honey for tea and honey for supper. Sometimes they even had honey for elevenses. Not satisfied filling up with the golden stuff, they even bathed in it. Soon, alongside the cries of 'No more blinking honey, please', the old chap would start to exude honey in his urine, faeces and sweat. If the film 'Bus Stop' had been relocated in time and place and Marilyn Monroe had been an ancient Arab, (OK, tenuous), she may have been heard to explain in a Deep South twang: Why I'm so old I'm spitting honey.

Needless to say, this early 'Bee-Plan' diet would end up killing the practitioner. Once expired, the body would then be placed in a casket filled with honey, sealed up and stamped with the year and month (giving it possibly the world's first sell-by label). The casket would then be left for up to a hundred years. When it was finally opened, what was inside had turned into a thick gloop. Probably with crunchy bits. The gloop was ladled into jars and sold as a health tonic. Allegedly available up to the 1900s and even found in Paris, the mellified man is likely to be a variation on the Egyptian tradition of mummification. Mary Roach writes in her book Stiff: The Curious Life of Human Cadavers1 that she found the recipe included in Chinese Materia Medica put together by Li Shih-chen, a naturalist, in 1597. He did, however, add that he was unsure of its authenticity.

Do you know what the going rate is for a consent to be cannibalized?  How much would a leg fetch, per pound?  I'd sell two for two million.  :lol:

That's an over-reach of child protection services!  (Yes, I'm serious here, though the rest of the thread isn't.)

A child has a right to life, but not liberty or property, so only in the case of murder should the parents be punished.  Some parents' rights radicals would also concede that severe brain damage should be prosecuted as well (because then the parents could get away with whatever abuse they've inflicted and not be outed and obviously ostracized once the child is emancipated), but a few burns and scratches shouldn't do it!  How to punish one's child is a subjective cultural matter - the state shouldn't interfere.

Wow... cool!  Thanks for digging this up.

I had two impacted wisdom teeth extracted this morning, and have been drinking blood for the last 6 hours.

And eating wadding, I'm betting.  Luck you.   :)  Did they give you some good drugs at least?

Thanks. I originally learned about it reading Stiff by Mary Roach. Fucking awesome book.
