where i'm from it's tradition on your 18th birthday.

Here in the U.S. that would be illegal.  We can't drink legally until 21.

First of all, a 21 yr old drinking age is asinine.

Second, isnt it legal inany stqtes to drink below that age with parental consent, inside the home?

I watched the Yankees win again, finally...  ::) Tanaka's great!
In conclusion, I can leave you with no better advice than that given after every sermon by Msgr Vincent Giammarino, who was pastor of St Michael’s Church in Atlantic City in the 1950s:

    “My dear good people: Do what you have to do, When you’re supposed to do it, The best way you can do it,   For the Love of God. Amen.”

When they raised the drinking age to 21, traffic accidents and deaths dropped dramatically.

Let's look at it this way, if we were to legalize public drinking what would happen the first few years, people going crazy, rambling drunk through the streets, urine smell throughout the air, the usual American celebration...give it a couple of years and things will go back to normal, and I would argue be better cops wouldn't have to enforce small crimes and can go after big fish which would lead to better respect for the police and perhaps tighter enforcement regarding drinking in those areas where we really do not want people getting sauced (schools hospitals etc), also perhaps picnics would return as people could go to the market buy food and a beer and just eat in the park or by the harbour.

Point being: the first few years you lift a prohibition things will go crazy but eventually everything will settle.

They once lowered the drinking age to 18 and traffic accidents increased (however I would also bet the legal limit at that time was still .15) then decreased when raised again to 21, I would argue that had they just let it be, and perhaps imposed the current BAC of .08 things would have settled and the benefits of finally joining the metric system (ie having a sane drinking age would come).
The world is charged with the grandeur of God.
    It will flame out, like shining from shook foil;
    It gathers to a greatness, like the ooze of oil
Crushed. Why do men then now not reck his rod?
Generations have trod, have trod, have trod;
    And all is seared with trade; bleared, smeared with toil;
    And wears man's smudge and shares man's smell: the soil
Is bare now, nor can foot feel, being shod.

And for all this, nature is never spent;
    There lives the dearest freshness deep down things;
And though the last lights off the black West went
    Oh, morning, at the brown brink eastward, springs —
Because the Holy Ghost over the bent
    World broods with warm breast and with ah! bright wings.

Mr T and the kids are watching Transformers the movie. The cartoon version from the 80s, not the recent ones. That is fun for them. Personally, I can't stand the gravelly voices- ugh. So I am going to take a nap. It doesn't get much more fun then that around here.

I'm tempted to say "who cares," if it's in the home with parental consent, once the kid hits 16-ish . How would the cops ever find out? It probably still depends on the age: nobody wants parents giving their little kids full beers or anything like that- that would probably still be illegal.

It's painful and full of dramatic hair metal like rifts and solos. It honestly makes my ears bleed. I will say that my children are learning a healthy respect for robots, so if they ever try and take over, my kids will be all over it.

my youngest two siblings on my father's side are half French, their mother migrated here from Brittany, and they were brought up very French in some ways. i remember seeing them having a small glass of wine at the dinner table when i was staying with them, which is something i actually think is quite good. teaching them how to responsibly enjoy drinking rather than keeping it as some kind of forbidden fruit can help stop people becoming too immersed in modern "drinking culture" which can form some bad habits, particularly binge drinking and so-called "dependency".

coming from the guy who advocated yardies a couple posts back lmfao... but yeah, you get the point. i have a 10 year old who is a bit of a "foodie" and i have on occasion allowed them a small sip of a wine or cider and asked them to think about what foods it would pair well with and things like that in order to encourage and affirm positive behaviours towards alcohol.

it's fun to just haul up and get sh!tfaced now and again, but at my age (few months shy of 30) when you look around and see how common it is for people this age to have fatty livers, get DTs when they start drying out, stomach ulcers from drinking, or having little to no stomach lining &c. it's extremely common at this age. but it probably doesn't need to be.

Hence training them at a young age. Stranger danger lessons don't just include kidnappers and pedos, it also includes a full chapter on Decepticons and their associates. It's in my Seton HSing planner.

The Autobots obviously weren't home schooled considering they decided to trust robots called DECEPTicons
