I'm surprised that you remember your birthday then. I certainly only remember parts of mine... haha, i remember waking up naked in the bathtub filled with water. That was a goooood 21st birthdaydobbin said:It used to be 21 in the UK and still is for some people, but I think most people now consider 18 to be the big one. Thats also when we can drink...
I seem to remember that drank 10 pints of beer on my 18th birthday and I was sick. ha!
Not true. You can have a drink with a meal when you're 16 that someone else has bought. It has to be beer or cider (wine is allowed in Scotland) but they can't just buy you a vodka in a bar.andrewfee said:It really depends on what you're wanting to do. In the UK you can drink legally at 16, if it was purchased for you by someone over 18. You're not allowed to buy the drinks yourself until your 18 though.
How does that work? At most, the child whould be 9 months...Doctor Q said:Zero, the year of birth, is considered pretty special too!
Are there countries/cultures where you are considered one year old upon birth, instead of zero? I remember reading that once.
You mean smoking age as in "hey my friends all smoke so I can too and I don't care if I am only 11"? The mean starting age of smoking in Germany is 11! So I guess that'd be special.sebisworld said:It could be 16 or 18 in Germany. 16 is drinking and (sadly) smoking age, but no one gives a crap about age limitations. So it is probably 18 (driving age).
Actually the French have the highest life expectancy in Europe. Some say, it's because they drink wine every day, but in quite small amounts, like one glass at dinner or so...skunk said:You're not really considered French until the liver damage kicks in.
