Cannibalization has many definitions, but one of the simplest is to define it as taking serviceable parts from a thing that does not work to use them on another thing that doe…s not work to make one thing that does work . The term probably came into popular use during WW2 when clever, mechanically adept GI's used their skills to keep equipment damaged in battle running. The somewhat grisly origin of the term probably comes from the fact that when a cannibal eats another human being, he may be said to be using serviceable parts from one person to keep another person (himself) running. The process only works on things that have interchangeable parts. For a simple example, let's say you have two cars of the same model and year, but neither runs, but each for a different reason. One car may have a bad alternator and a good starter, while the other car has a bad starter but a good alternator. By taking the good part from either car and replacing the bad part in the other car, you can get one of the two cars running. You have "cannibalized" one car to make the other one work. You can extend this concept further by, say, taking the good tires from the cannibalized car and replacing the worn tires on the car that now starts. The process can be repeated almost indefinitely until you have run out of good parts to replace bad ones. Another meaning is the process of eating one's own kind. For other excellent examples and definitions of cannibalization, see related links. (MORE)
Cannibals are humans who eat other humans. Or: Species that consume for food their same species: MANY animals have been known to exhibit cannibalistic behaviors. 1)a person… who eats the flesh of another person "cannibal tribes" 2)an animal that feeds on flesh of it's own species Someone who eats people. An animal that feeds on others of its own kind. Popular definition is that Cannibal means a species that eats members of its own species.Historically Cannibal is a named used to describe a set of Caribbean islanders (the Carib tribe) that waged war on the Spanish Armada. One of their tactics was to sneak on board, or otherwise ambush the armada and steal the body parts of victims. These body parts would be displayed on pikes around islands that this group claimed as a warning to others. While the 'act' generally ascribed to the term is older than this tribe or conflict, it was during this conflict that the term was linked to the act. to eat something of your own species, in most cases, for a human to kill and eat another human.

Guam is an island in the Western Pacific Ocean. Latitude/Longitude 13Âº 30n, 144Âº 48E. Guam lies between 13.2Â°N and 13.7Â°N and between 144.6Â°E and 145.0Â°E, an…d has an area of 212 square miles (549 km 2 ), making it the 32nd largest island of the United States . It is the southernmost and largest island in the Mariana island chain and is also the largest island in Micronesia .Guam is the closest land mass to the Mariana Trench , a deep subduction zone , that lies beside the island chain to the east. Challenger Deep , the deepest surveyed point in the Oceans , is southwest of Guam at 35,797 feet (10,911 m) deep. The highest point in Guam is Mount Lamlam , which is 1,332 feet (406 m), and surprisingly, is also considered the tallest mountain in the world from below sea level, since it extends in to the Mariana Trench .The island of Guam is 30 miles (48 km) long and 4 mi (6 km) to 12 mi (19 km) wide. The island experiences occasional earthquakes due to its location on the western edge of the Pacific Plate and near the Philippine Sea Plate . In recent years, earthquakes with epicenters near Guam have had magnitudes ranging from 5.0 to 8.7. Unlike the Anatahan volcano in the Northern Mariana Islands , Guam is not volcanically active.  However, due to its proximity to Anatahan, vog does occasionally affect Guam.  The northern part of the island is a forested coralline limestone plateau while the south contains volcanic peaks covered in forest and grassland. A coral reef surrounds most of the island, except in areas where bays exist that provide access to small rivers and streams that run down from the hills into the Pacific Ocean and Philippine Sea.  The island's population is most dense in the northern and central regions.  (MORE)
