I know I have referenced the movie Alive previously but can we talk about it again? THAT MOVIE IS CRAZY. It is based on a true story and that makes it all the more insane. It really has me wondering what I would do to survive. I know I have admitted that if anything catastrophic happened I would be in the first group to die. But sometimes I wonder if I am a survivor and don’t even know it. We all have skills and strengths we aren’t even aware of. An arsenal of untapped resources just waiting for the sh** to hit the fan.
Could I survive a plane crash, maybe…
Could I withstand the freezing cold… sure, I would do some jumping jacks.
Could I handle being away from civilization… absolutely, I would prefer it.
Could I eat another human to survive… ummmmmmmmm….
I can barely stomach what most people consider delicacies. I’m a cheese pizza kind of girl. (don’t judge me)
While I know I don’t have much room to talk on this matter since I haven’t gone hungry a day in my life. That being said, I’m not entirely sure what I would resort to if I were literally starving to death.
I would hope that I would be one of the tough ones who would survive despite all odds, not likely, but I’m hopeful.
The will to survive fascinates me. I’m in no way meaning to make light of any life or death situation…
I am just curious what and if others think about it. We live day to day and most of us never give a second thought to the worst happening. I don’t think of myself as overly morbid, but I do think about it. I daydream about insane scenarios.
My questions is this: could you eat your best friend (previously deceased of natural causes, of course) if it meant you would live to see another day?
