    Ok soon..like tomorrow like. I will be passing that impassable barrier which is 21 and i will "officially" become a man. So therefore that means that this weekend i can go crazy and enjoy my manhood *cough* *cough*.
    To add to the festivities i will also be holding a party, but i need to invite people, and i need an original idea/invitation. But i really find these invitation websites pretty bad; so i was wondering if i might be enlightened here to any good websites?

    Thanks in advance

    Just ring ten of your buddies. Tell them to invite one, and only one, friend each.

    Then go out for a party.

    This way you have fun with your buddies, and also have 21 people at your party. Clever, eh? ;)

    see if they still have that Snakes on a Plane message that you can send to your friends. record it, then alter it to tell people to go to your party.

    21 eh? It's not such a big deal here (don't get me wrong, it's a massive party) as all the "manhood" stuff you get at 21 we've had since 18, most of it since 16.

    Go out, have fun, do something memorable but make sure you can't remember it - that's your mates' job - and just have a blast.

    Be careful though, I've seen many an American land here suddenly legal and spend the next six months drinking themselves to death because alcohol wasn't introduced to them at a reasonable age. It was like even drinking at home with the family at dinner wasn't even allowed - I've been doing that since I was 16, taught me respect for the effects of alcohol and gave me a safe environment supervised by my parents to explore the more "adult" life experiences. You guys have to rethink the whole no drinking till you're 21 thing.

    Happy Birthday, make it a dead-set bloody ripper!!

    Go to An In-N-Out and order a 21-patty hamburger, they'll do it for you too, you just have to pay for each extra patty.

    OK well i used Pages to create a superiffic invite and people should be queuing up in my driveway this weekend.
    Warning to all those people who might try using pages for an invite i recommend 2 gigs of RAM! :rolleyes:
    Xander562 that burger thang looks mighty delicious but i dont reckon they have that here.

    PS:I have been drinkin the booze and doing the evil for a few years now but i have always had the idea that 21 was something big.Chundles i agree with you the earlier you start with booze the sooner u can handle it.

    Ok Thanks all, going to bed now, my last night being 20..oh boy!
    Peace

    So, I'm getting the sinking feeling we're not invited to you party?

    You do realize we picked the age of 21 after years of research on the effects alcohol has on the brain... right? At age 21 your brain is (mostly) done developing and alcohol will not damage it as severely. ...Besides, every European I know drinks like a fish, so I'm not convinced.


    ...With that said, vouder17, have a good time and get drunk. :p As for inviting people, just call up some of your best friends. I've always found it's more fun with just 5-10 people; once you get too many it gets too chaotic.

    my personal feeling is that the drinking age and the driving age should both be 18. I worry a lot less about drunken drivers than I do about the freakin' high school kids who don't have the maturity to handle a car.

    That sounds like a great idea! On a kid's 18th birthday they can get their driver's license and get inebriated the very same day! ;)

    No (although I think it's a great idea). The post to which I was responding suggested that the driving and drinking ages should both be 18 years old.

    Why I have to disagree with you about the license thing I also agree with you. I grew up on a farm in Nebraska so driving machinerey and vehicles from farm to farm and from field to field was nothing new, and by 14 I had a school permit to drive to school by myself. So I don't believe in the 18 year old rule for that reason becasue there are still some kids out there that acctually have been behind the wheel and practiced and what not.

    Now in big cities like San Fran, L.A., Dallas, I think 18 is a great idea also because most of these guys haven't been behind the wheel until its time to test for the license....

    Sorry I felt like ranting since there isn't a MBP merom yet....

    I'm disgusted at the fact that I'm actually drooling for that.

    Young minds learn new skills easier. So, as long as a person has the sufficient motor skills to control a car (which I read once happens around 8 years old), then it's better to start earlier than later.

    If people happen to be too immature or something, then try to test for that in the drivers license test, or give people initially restrictive licenses (no night driving, only certain types of roads). But the solution is not to raise the minimum age to get a license.

    I've actually posted a drinking age/driving age thread in the politics/religion/social issues forum, since we're getting a bit off topic here...which is my fault entirely since I'm the one who brought it up.

    have a look if you like
    cheers :D

    This is a house party? Make it a primitive caveman themed party. Girls can wear furry bikinis. Guys can bring clubs and trash your home. You can turn out all the lights and just have some tea lights lit in groups in the corners. Maybe play some dinosaur and jungle sounds on your stereo.
