25. Yes, I do know what subsitance living means.

I remember as a child walking in the snow with holes in my shoes that allowed the slush from melting ice to almost freeze my feet off. I remember eating sugar sandwiches for supper as that was the only item on the menu. During my childhood, I went from living an upper class life to living in an orphanage so I really do understand subsistence living, just not the impact it would have in remote communities in Alaska, which is why I agreed that if the quota of whaling needed to be raised, it should be.

What I was ridiculing it, was your suggestion that a person would have to experience a two day ride in the snow to buy a loaf of bread to understand poverty and that made, to me anyway, absolutely no sense at all and added nothing to the conversation.
