That's farkin' scary.

I will never understand America. You let 15 year olds drive, but they have to be 21 to drink.
Do it the other way round, and America would be a safer place.

Are you kidding? I'm not even sure six theoretical years of unimpaired driving is enough.

Florida. You have to get a permit so you can drive. (and you have to have a adult with you which sucks!)

The license comes at 18...

I don't understand the UKs law that states you can have sex and get married legally at 16 but you can only watch pr0n at 18.

License comes at 16 buddy. I just got mine. Permits aren't that bad if your dad drives crazy anyway.

Heh, I'm the opposite. I never want to go on to the next post-count ranking. I always look at it like, "Crap, I post here too much."
