(17:47:18) zfe: "be" is more proper

(17:47:30) firespeaker: I suspect if you were that rich, you probably could own a tiger

(17:47:47) TinoDidriksen: Legally, only if you build a zoo.

(17:47:50) firespeaker: whatever laws exist could be avoided by payments to the right officials

(17:48:01) firespeaker: TinoDidriksen: I'm not talking legally

(17:48:08) firespeaker: TinoDidriksen: this is Bangladesh we're talking about

(17:48:19) TinoDidriksen: True true

(17:48:23) zfe: well, buying a zoo license

(17:48:30) zfe: is not that expensive probably

(17:48:41) firespeaker: zfe: but there would probably be restrictions associated with it

(17:48:46) firespeaker: like letting people in to see your tiger

(17:48:52) zfe: sure

(17:48:58) zfe: but who told you i will keep the tiger in a cage?

(15:45:30) [me]: you make gourmet food from foodbank handouts?

(15:45:39) Aladnsane: This is the PNW.

(15:46:07) Aladnsane: Foodbank handouts are raw ingredients, some canned goods, bakery rosemary diamantes, fresh fruit and veg... *shrug*

(15:46:15) Aladnsane: If you know how to take your pick, yes, I do


(15:49:05) Aladnsane: Seriously though; the Food Bank here is amazing

(15:50:49) Aladnsane: I've gotten fresh bell peppers, fresh cilantro, there's ALWAYS good bread (largely because most people going there have families, so they need whitebread for the kids, because they don't seem to realize that kids are /trained/ to be picky, rather than being naturally picky - it's serving them 'kids food', that makes kids picky), I mean, there's always things that are hard to find,

(15:50:51) [me]: in Seattle, I can imagine

(15:51:06) Aladnsane: Bellingham

(15:51:13) Aladnsane: In Seattle, I could get all of that Dumpster Diving
