Hi there!
This is my first post here! I am afraid to ask something about Linux, because I am still a newbie in this area. That's why I want to ask something generally, just to get used to the forum.
Do you know where I can find fotos/vids with tigers playing with people? I am not talking about some man-eaters or other creepy stuff. It is the love for tigers I have. I adore these beautiful and magnificent cats. I watched a documentary movie on Animal Planet, that told the story of a tiger zoo. Actually the tigers were intentionally left to walk around with only an accompanig person from the zoo. What really impressed me, was the fact, that tigers and humans played together! I think tigers enjoyed the man's care and loveliness. Now I would like to have some fotos of such relationships-thematics.
I would appreciate any links, opinions etc. Just for the fun chat :)

Google will be your best friend to find the fotos that you want (but be prepared for lots of popups and ads when you visit some sites).

Back in the 1970s, a progressive rock band called Emerson, Lake & Palmer did a song called "Tiger in the Spotlight". I've got a video of ELP doing the song live, with a tiger on the stage. As the song goes on, the tiger keeps edging away from Keith Emerson and his keyboard and towards Greg Lake (the guitarist), as if frightened by Emerson's synthesizer chops. You might be able to find a copy of the video; my copy's on DVD.

check out this site - http://www.cptigers.org/animals/species.asp?speciesID=9 (it's a link to the tiger page). it's the carnivore preservation trust in pittsboro, nc. i went there about ten years ago, when i was working for the nc wildlife federation. at that time, they had about 18 tigers there. the biggest one was named ian, weighing in at 950lbs. he was as big as a cow. (i'm sure he was a pig, like my cat, as they don't get that big in the wild, usually.) they had one tiger, named michael, who used to wait until one of the volunteers brought food to the food slot and then pounce in the puddles near the wall, splashing the poor, unsuspecting victim. (morale: anyone who trusts a cat not to **** around, is a fool.)

Did you'all know that about 27 million years ago Tigers used to be Crockadiles and their spots are where their bumps used to be. :)

Hey, thanks for the great comments.

Just for the sake of conversation, my girlfriend is from Sweden.
Isn't she lovely, giving me a hug like that? :rolleyes:

Best wishes to Russia!

Best wishes to Russia!She's lovely actually, but I was afraid my GF would read my post LOL. The question is how have you met each other, 'cause Greece is pretty far away from Sweden actually... And what language do you use to communicate?

I'm afraid this question will be absolutely offtopic, think it's time to start another topics called "The members' girlfriends" and "The members' pets"!;)
