::puts head down:: back with her. lol but yes i did it was my 2nd breakup with her. i know its not healthy because she seemed like she was lost without me doing stupid stuff and so on and pretty much beggin me here and there to get back together. finally after like 2 months things cooled off a bit. we had a chance to acctually talk, so as long as she keeps up her end on acctually being mutual and not just using me, we should be alright. the funny thing on family to , its rare we ever get along so it was kind of nice to all meet up and have dinner it's been like 2 years since that ever happened. the best gift i could get comes tonight, i been wanting grand theft auto and i found out thier doing a mid night launch at the store i ordered at so i'm pretty happy.
Can I be the crazy canadian guy here and mention that in Canada, we can legally drink smoke, gamble and vote all at 19? And in many provinces, at 18! And to be even more annoying, some countries do not follow a age, throughout Europe and the Carabian, you can get a drink as soon as you can pay for it (makes for great vacations, ahhh memories)
Also , if the US, thinks at 18, U are responsible enough to vote for the President of the United States of America, then the US lawmakers should have enough common sense to presume you are responsible enough to consume alcohol, smoke, gamble, and make rational decisions..
The present US laws are contradictory in many ways...
BTW...I am no 18 yr old kid, whining cause I can't drink, smoke or gamble...I have been well over 21 for many years now...beleive me!...LOL
Personally I think MANY 18 yr olds are immature and irresponsible, but that could be said about many 35-65 yr olds too!..so I base my opinions on the military participation and right to vote acts allowed (sometimes demanded in a military draft) to 18 yr olds.
I agree 21 is pretty steep. I find a drinking age that steep does more damage than good. Because students (highschool and college) can't drink in a bar, they are forced to drink in privated, which cases alecholism, and binge drinking. It does far more social damage than legal youth drinking. The best sytem I have seem is in parts of the UK where min age is 16. This works very well because it teaches responsible drinking at a young age. It stops expermenting and lowers the amount of youth drinking them selfs to death. And that is only 1 benefit of responsible drinking at a early age.
