Did OG make a promise to cut his arm off after leaving the island so everyone would be on level footing rather than participate in cannibalism?
Not exactly

It was OG's turn to cut his arm off when they were rescued?

Did the OG have to keep his arm in order to get them off the island?

Like, was he a pilot, or the guy that rowed he boat or something?

Is the way they get off the island relevant?

... and he promised he would once they were safely returned so that all the castaways were (*ahem*) in the same boat (sorry) with their single-armedness in the future. He clearly didn't. OAM saw him, was pissed, and shot him?

That's basically it. There is only a slight variation to it.

Fuck off with your variations.

But what is it?

Several men were shipwrecked together.

They agreed to survive by eating each other a piece at a time. Each of them in turn gave up an arm, but before they got to the last man, they were rescued.

They all demanded that the last man live up to his end of the deal. So, he ran away.

Later on, he killed a bum and sent the bum's arm to the others in a box to "prove" that he had fulfilled the bargain. After some time had past, one of them sees him on the subway, holding onto an overhead ring with the arm he supposedly cut off; the other realizes that the last man cheated, and kills him.

Now enjoy the rest of your week. :rolleyes:

YES!!!

I could've sworn I asked that question, like, three days ago. I know I thought it, a least.

Thinking it doesn't count. Nobody ever guess it. You guys were getting close a few times but never quite got there.

This just angers me. I did hit 499 posts with the help of this damn story.

What ticks me off is that I thought there was a ceremony where they cut off the arm at the same time and ate them together.

Edit: I'm not giving this thread the joy and dignity that comes with my 500th post.

(This isn't directed at you Tim, you did your job well and thank you)

Don't forget over 1700 page views. Hopefully Joe made it over 500.
