Sadly, it was locked, but my bike has one of these locks that only block the back wheel. One of the kids simply lifted up the back while the other held the bars, and biked off like that. I would have used my chain lock, but was in a hurry since I didn't want the fire to spread :(
No matter how you identity yourself or your maturity level, legally and physically someone who is under 18 is a minor, a.k.a. child. I'm 17 and I acknowledge that, even though I've met 25 year old adults with the mental capacities of an 8 year old and could be considered their equal.
Yes, it does. If another place identifies you as an adult and you are a resident of said place, you are considered an adult by them. So what I'm saying is that age does not technically make you an adult if you can get emancipated and all this other shit. Besides, I don't really see why 18 classifies you as an adult. It's just a random number & it's not "scientifical".
