South Texas one of the few places I'd rather be in a mass starvation event. Prickly pear not bad. Hell they sell it in grocery stores down there.

Move to Peru, there's a law there, but they only enforce it 7% of the time, which is surprisingly worse than even South Africa.
Dude, that's the plot premise for Judge Dredd.

Oof, not me. Head north, colder the better. Fewer dindus and legumers, plenty of clean water, and enough deer/elk/moose/trout that you will never lack protein and fat. Just make sure you raid a Cabellas first.

Voted me and my kids are dead.

I only have utility if I'm writing software or working robots. I have a bunch of food allergies to fresh fruit/vegetables that would make post-apoc living impossible.
Well you still have the options to start up "Brotherhood of Steel" or "The Institute" type of organization. No one said you cant kill everyone with your personal robot army.

I have a hard time seeing myself kill anyone. If the survival of my family were on the line...I can't quite comprehend what I'd be capable of until faced with the situation. Sitting here with a full fridge and pantry with everyone in good health and a warm home, I'd like to say I couldn't kill anyone. However, threaten the well-being of my wife and kids? Anything is possible.

Everyone saying "but there would be tons of food around!" is completely trying to work around the entire premise of the poll. How is it a mass starvation event if there is still tons of food everywhere?

Also, anyone voting that they wouldn't has probably never actually been hungry beyond missing lunch on a busy day or "aww man i'd like a midnight snack but I have to just wait til breakfast, this sucks"

If you have eaten coon, nutria, rattlesnake, possum, hogs head cheese, squirrel brains and such as I have - eating a person wouldn't really be a stretch I imagine.

Rattlesnake and squirrels taste good though. Not a fan of head cheese, it's just lazy.

squirrels don't taste good. Try them without a sauce or anything. Just roasted squirrel. Not good.

Can't speak to rattlesnake.
