    Sorry my dear but I disagree. Age is just a number. I was mature way before I was even a teen. It depends on how you were raised, what you were taught.

    Re: changing the drinking age

    True True. Maturity is a stage not an age ^.^ Just like being dateable. But ANYHOW! My sister is just 'bout to turn 21 in April. Which will make it legal for her. Which sucks like no other seeing as she likes to party and what not and now she can do it legally. *Sigh* What a Joy. Can you see me celebrating? v.V
    Now she has a huge chance of drinking and driving or doing something really stupid that could ruin or end her life forever. yey! w000 drinking is so much fun right?!

    (If you couldn't tell, I'm being sarcastic, and am a bit upset when I think of this)

    Thanks Pyroo. :]

    I don't drink, but I think it should be changed to 18. Because if you're old enough to vote and die for your country, you're old enough to drink alcohol.
    You are not your job. You are not your bank account. You are not the contents of your wallet. You are not your ****ing Khakis. We are the all seeing all dancing crap of the world. You are not a beautiful and unique snowflake you are the same rotting organic matter as everything else. We are all part of the same compost heap.

    Exactly, just like in some places you can smoke weed in public and it's fine.

    Making things illegal or giving it a certain age just makes people want to break the law even more.

    You know I have to question who you are because I just had this conversation with my family. My cousin recently turned 18 and he is off to the Air Force. Its not the Marines, but they are making so minors can't join the base parties anymore.

    The kid is an alcoholic and I know someone will get him booze, but you have a point. If they will let you fight and send you out to die, why not allow them to drink? Its a touch question and considering how 21 is only 3 yrs older, there isn't a huge amount of experience betwen the two to really say that your intelligence and awareness is any better.

    I don't really care if they dropped it or lowered the age limit, drinking isn't something that I considered a really that impressive or inspirational. In the end it takes a certain intelligence to truly appreciate the drink. Not many know when to stop or begin.

    The Second post of this thread, im not sure if it was said, but races such as the Indians weren't introduced to alcoholic beverages as early as the Irish and English. Their tolerance isn't nearly as high as a gerneral and whole and its not really surprising that they died at such a young age. Knowing your limit isn't something that a lot of people understand to the point and its easy enough to kill yourself.

    For those in battle, let them have a drink, I don't see why they can't have a last request. A few people who come off the field tend to drink anyways so its all on them. Drink so you can't remember.
