One of my closest friends turned 22 last year. We, of course, taunted him for being so old. Tch, youth.

Awwwww :grin:.

I like how the legal age for drinking is 18 in the UK. And how relaxed the barkeeps and off-licence owners are. Heeee.

I don't give a flying fek about drinking...I just wish they'd let me into the freaking shows. mates of State is playing here next month and I can't go coz it's a FAWKING 21+ show. *seethes*

It should be "21+ and/or straight edgers"

i don't wanna be 20. 16 was the perfect age.

I feel so old and wrinkly now.

It seems pretty dumb to have an age limit of 21 on a show. Most shows here have a limit of 16, and they stamp your hand if you're legally entitled to buy alcohol. So everyone gets in, but only some are drinking anyway.

You'd have to prove you're straight-edge as well. All venues would need a tame hardliner on a leash who'd sniff and bark at claimants.

For the record, I tend to only drink at shows if it's (a) a festival (b) a really crap show, but one I'm loathe to leave for whatever reason or (c) if my friends are playing, because they tend to get the beers in :grin:. Or if I'm performing myself. I am plagued by nerves at the best of times.

The other factor is that, curiously, my singing actually improves when I'm a little merry. I know everyone thinks that, but I've tested it with before-and-after recordings. Most Peculiar.

Edit: me spell bad today.

Well, some shows are "All Ages, bar w/ ID".
But then they have to have shows earlier. Why? Because minors have to be out of places where there is alky-hool by 10pm.

Yea. it sucks.

eh, even those these foruyms really suck, i hesitate to use another service, for several reasons: a, i hate ezboard. and they have tons of shitty pop-up ads. b, i really want tio encourage people to use the message board more, and i figure most people reading the comic allready have a keenspace account. is that assumption way off base?
