The simple answer—at least in Minnesota and probably in most other states—is no. Well, maybe.
Max knew enough already that it was a felony to kill a bald eagle (at least on purpose), but what if you killed one in self defense? Would that be illegal? What about killing one in a “stand your ground” state?
My initial reaction was, sure, if there’s a market for it. There’s steak tartare, isn’t there? And the cannibal sandwich in Milwaukee, made with raw beef and onions. Then he asked “what about raw chicken?” Then I wasn’t so sure.
Assuming you could drive a car 400mph down a city street, what are the possible penalties for driving it 370mph over the posted speed limit?
I forget how this came up, but in the course of a conversation about all the crap we own as a family, Max wanted to know who actually owns the iPod he received as a Christmas gift.
