Google news just had a story about this guy. It said he was fleeing child sex abuse charges. So glad he suffered so that now he can suffer some more.

after he spent a brutal winter eating rats and raisins to survive, local media reported.

I don't want to be the one who has to tell him, "Those weren't raisins".

I think the last sentence is trying to tell us not to cross the Andes without a companion. A plump, tasty companion.

Yes, that is true, an author usually has presumption of copyright when a work is created, however, things get murky when it is "work for hire" so in those cases it is best to state the copyright holder out of an abundance of caution.

Precision Boobery: ArcadianRefugee: That clarify things for ya?

No, you're still saying humans aren't animals and we're not made of the same kind of stuff that's in your hamburger.

No, no I am not. I am not saying humans aren't meat, I am saying that humans are the exception to the "meat is meat" truism when it comes to being shocked, verboten, taboo. Why? Because I am human, that's why.

ArcadianRefugee: An animal's an animal; meat is meat.

Except humans, because something magical happens when they write things down to change all that, somehow.

See above.  I don't know how I can make it any clearer. Humans are animals. Animals are meat. Humans are meat. Just don't eat humans unless you really, really have to.

Try explaining that to the next hungry tiger you wander across.

So it's okay to eat chimps or other great apes but not humans.

Yes. And dolphins, and elephants, and any other species you might thing is truly sentient. Except humans. Which are made of meat.

What about humans who do not and will never have the capacity to "make the rules, write the articles, and so on"?  No?  Because reasons?

Because "human", that's why.

Because humans, as a general rule, make the rules. When a farking cow can stand up and say*, "biatches, cut it the fark out!" in a way we understand, then maybe I'll give a shiat.

Why do I think humans have some "magical" quality that sets them apart from other animals? Because I am one. Convenient, that, and also completely unsurprising that I endorse rules that benefit me.

So, go ahead: eat all the fish cows sheep squirrels orangutans spotted owls komodo dragons gray wolves unicorns you want; just try to not sample the human unless you've run out of options. Why? Cos I'm one, and I don't wanna be eaten.

* sign language counts; running away does not

Um, this first sentence is not just completely pointless, it's completely irrelevant.

No, it is brilliant. You just missed the joke.
