The Cannibals of an Island have the habit of eating each other.
One evening, the cannibals threw a dinner party. Six cannibals turned up and they decided to eat each other in turn. So someone was selected for everyone to eat (except the victim!), and when he had been eaten, someone else was selected, and so on.
If it took one cannibal two hours on his own to devour one person, how long was it before just one consumer remained?
(In reply to Stomach Contents
Jils: "Given that the meat would probably take hours to digest, I don't think that the mass of the cannibals would change significantly - unless they were prepared to eat the stomach contents as well."
This thread is getting grosser by the minute.
