Wait, the arm wasn't animal, his, a dead person and everyone else left with one arm?

Did someone die on the island?
Was the arm from them?
Was this person related (or emotionally important) to OAM?

And everyone lost only 1 arm?

Was he a freak and born with 3 arms?

You're just an epic troll, aren't you?

So he presented an arm?
Did he present an arm shaped object?

Did he eat something that belonged to another member of the group?

Did he present his arm?

Does he presently have his 2 natural arms?

Everyone had an entire arm to eat?

Was the arm that each person ate their arm?

We're the arms just thrown into a pile and chosen randomly?

Did he actually eat?

Did he pretend to eat?

Did he just take a bit out of his still attached to his body arm?

Is this line of questioning getting us closer to the truth?

So the OG somehow had access to a spare human arm?

Did he bring the arm with him onto the island? Was the arm there before they arrived?

Did the arm belong to anyone on the island?

Is the original owner of the arm alive at the time they were on the island??

Is the arm like an actual meat and bone arm?

To recap 10 people had 10 arms to eat but only 9 of the people cut their arm off. The 10th arm belongs to none of:
An animal, a dead person, any of the 10, a natural inhabitant of the island, a plant, a rock or any other thing.

The arm belongs to a person?
There are no people hiding in the jungle?
After the ceremony there remains 11 arms and the inedible parts of the 9 severed arms.

So, just how long did it take to get up to date?

Guys, wouldn't it suck for someone who hasn't been asking questions come in and basically answers it on his first swing?

Well, everything he said is accurate.

Do you want me to fill in the blanks?

I think all he did was to summarize everything we know. At least, everything *I* knew.

It's the OG's original motivation and the situation that's killing me.

Fair enough, maybe I inferred a little knowing the story.
