A good short snappy title, that's what I like to see...

& yes, Precious Sight. Very good, that :D :wink:

TO BE CLEAR................the song is about isolation and taking steps to deal with that one way or another(I leap the boat clear.......as it says in the song,you can take that to mean whatever you like)NOT about fuckin eating someone ok? :cyclopsani:

Well, I don't have the slightest... not being a regular cannibal myself.

The full title of the book (oh, blimey, it can be bought at amazon; I've been looking for it for more than 20 years :roll: ) reads:

Cannibalism and the Common Law: The Story of the Tragic Last Voyage of the Mignonette and the Strange Legal Proceedings to Which It Gave Rise by A. W. Brian Simpson

and I've just found an abstract of a review, too:
"The famous case Regina v. Dudley is the focus of Brian Simpson’s Cannibalism and the Common Law. Jurisprudentially, Regina v. Dudley poses in the starkest terms the question whether the ordinary law of homicide should apply in desperate circumstances. The net effect of Simpson’s work is to turn Regina v. Dudley from a case upholding a principle into the story of a victim, Tom Dudley."

Alright, "Precious Sight" then? love it.


I don't think anyone knows what they'd be capable of or driven to if they were desperate and hanging on to life, so my naive view is no, it shouldn't be a crime in certain circumstances.

It also raises the point that if your life depended on making a stew out of your companions it's probably the one occasion when the blokes on here would prefer to be stranded with Christopher Biggins rather than Girls Aloud...

:roll: Trust Percy Filth to turn a well balanced debate about cannabilism and the physical merits of Christopher Biggins v. Girls Aloud into debauchery.
