    So it turns out the minimum drinking age here is five with parental consent :D

    But buying is still 18....

    You know... in some countries, they don't allow alcohol...

    Down here, there's a saying... :D

    Once two strangers climbed ol' Rocky Top, lookin' for a moonshine still... Strangers ain't come down from Rocky Top, reckon they never will. Corn won't grow at all on Rocky Top, dirt's too rocky by far... That's why all the folks on Rocky Top get their corn from a jar.


    I suppose my grandpa always had the finest cough syrup around. His brothers still do. There's still somewhere near 100 major warehouse distilleries in the Blue Ridge. Mostly in Southwest VA, but the majority are in Winchester, Virginia, where I go camping... :D

    Which is also why I don't like to wander off too much from trails when I'm out there...

    21 is pretty ridiculous, I know a lot of people that started drinking around family around 16ish :tongue:

    In a way, you're comparing apples an oranges though.

    Most of Europe tends to regard drunkeness as a flaw; in the US and Ireland it is regarded as masculine, amusing, and comical, in general.

    Which countries have the way higher rate of alcoholism.

    Simply changing the age restriction could be disasterous wihtout changing the fundamental ideas behind it.

    even if the legal drinking and buying age is 18, it's still very easy to buy alcohol down here. So it doesn't really matter :D

    people under 21 dont really (in my experience) have much problem getting alcohol.. so the only thing the law really seems to do is keep *most* under 21 year olds out of bars and such.
    and bars really get boring after awhile. its only fun if theirs a good band, or its a small tavern with pool and/or shuffleboard and a jukebox.

    Drinking should be compulsory... at 16 everyone should tie on a good one so they know what a hangover is all about.

    I'm sorry, but pubs are the shit. Banter with locals, a slection of beers and a safe indoors place to drink is genious.

    "the bars" are like clubs except filled with people who dont dance. they are ok.. but it gets old. the clubs.. ugh.. i'm not into paris hilton look alikes dancing all night in barely anything.
