    For when the conversation gets a little dull at the Christmas parties -

    News Item - A German, Armin Meiwes, confessed yesterday, Wednesday, to killing and eating a willing victim in a case that could make legal history.

    "Meiwes said there were "hundreds, thousands" of people seeking to fulfil their desires to eat humans or be eaten via Internet advertisements in forums called "Cannibal Cafe," "Guy Cannibals" and "Torturenet."

    "Meiwes said he became obsessed with wanting a younger brother -- "someone to be part of me."

    "Some 430 people responded to his e-mails within a year."

    So, be selective about where you post. Full story at - www.reuters.com/newsArticle.jhtml?type=oddlyEnoughNews&storyID=3933080&pageNumber=1

    Don't be surprised if bootlegs of the dissection film show up on the net/Ebay.

    Bizzarre - you can kill someone with their permission yet you cannot steal from them with tehir permission (UK Law).

    "Legal experts say the charge of full murder may not stick given that the video film shows the victim to be willing. The case could reach the Federal Constitutional Court, Arthur Kreuzer of Giessen University's Institute for Criminology said this week. "
