wow... what a bunch of pricks saying 'ydi for being underage' lol no he deserves it for letting the fella go to his car... that was just stupid. But are you really such sticklers for stupid laws? I just checked, and there's only 6 other countries in the world with a limit of 21 years... none of them developed countries.
Did you seriously just say that she doesn't deserve it because she's breaking a "stupid" law? The age limit of 21 is not stupid...drinking alcohol in general is stupid. Of course, I'm not condemning people who do drink alcohol from time to time, but alcohol causes serious medical issues. The age limit of 21 prevents teenage kids from drinking before their brains are even fully developed.
They're not saying that Americans' brains develop slower, simply that the age should probably be higher globally. Multiple studies have shown alcohol consumed even before 25 has a severe effect on the brain's development. But why do you need studies to tell you the obvious? I fail to see how ingesting that inhibits brain function, causes nausea, and creates a weak immune system among other things is a good idea.
Isn't the brain nearly completely developed at about 6 because it grows rapidly at early stages of life. That is why the tops of babies heads are soft because their brains have enough space when it is growing quickly so It doesn't hit the skull. It is maybe more of liver problems or other things.
Everyone on this post acts like they were angles and saints when they were in high school.. Really, nobody partied or got drunk between the ages of 15-21, I find that hard to believe.. So you're all hypocrites when you say they deserved it, because most of you have all been in the same situation, and would have been pissed to if you got ripped off 20$.. Not saying they didn't deserve it , but I'm not saying they did
Haha:) seriously YDI for trusting a random stranger with $20 and for trying to drink under 21. If your going to do something illegal, can't you at least be smart about it?! Don't ask a random guy outside of a liquor store to buy you vodka! Oh well, at least you learned something:) maybe that sudden loss of cash took away some of your stupidity.
