Vote 16, drink 18 and go to war 80
Good question. I can hear the disagreements already, and know this will never happen, I would say no vote until they are living on their own and have a fulltime job. Drinking would be 21 because nothing good happen when young folks drink without supervision. Going to war should be 60 and above. We'll probably end up deciding the outcome with a drinking contest. Jmho
What about the countries, like Korea...where everyone - mostly men - need to spend a year in the Army.
What about them? Is this rules for the world or just Canada? If it's rules for world, no worries. They don't go to boot camp till they are 59 and a half. Ha!
So if your country decided everyone should spend a year in the Army...at what age would that happen...according to you...
USA at one time had all men register to be drafted. Probably should do that again so the big shots in government at least need to think their own family can be forced into it.
What about marijuana? Would you advocate a 14 year-old inhaling?
There are young teens out there, smoking up a storm!!
18, 18, and never.
Okay. How about a good age to be forced to go to War.....if the country is desperate...aka....
There is no "good" age to either go to war or be forced to go. Nor, in my opinion, is there any need for my country to force anyone. If we are attacked, we will defend ourselves. And when the PTB wish to wage an offensive war, they've become quite adept at convincing folks to volunteer.
Hate, just hate to correct you...but your country did force men to go to war...
I never said they didn't...in the past. I said, and I quote, "And when the PTB wish to wage an offensive war, they've become quite adept at convincing folks to volunteer."
No...but you never said they did, either. Is it an American trait to gloss over events you wish to forget?
Your question, and thus my response, addressed the future, not the past.
Not at all. We regularly bring up our past (the good, the bad, and the ugly) amongst ourselves, in the public square, and across the ether for all the world to see.
The answer to all of this, as always, is 42. Luckily, I'm a year short.
All of them are allowed at an age when a person is considered mature enough, it's all relative.
That's not an answer...what does it mean?
What do you mean by "wussing out" I dont see how it connects to what I"m trying to say
What are you trying to say...what age...
I'm saying that the age 18 which in most countries you can do the things you listed is the relative age that people are considered mature, it's considered that most people are capable of making those choices by then.
18, 21, never
So you're a prime number then...for going to war.
Drink at 21? Kids would hate you for that...
Don't you remember what it was like waiting for that day to come when you were finally legal?
Still, YOU would have objected strenuously if any limits were imposed on you about drinking in bars...
Twenty-one; twenty-one; ninety.
