"Hey college kid, try this beer. Don't swallow, that would be illegal." - teacher

"I would never think of swallowing beer." - no college kid ever

Our laws are ridiculous.  Old enough to enlist and be shot at: 18.  Old enough to enjoy a pint: 21.

I used to agree, but frankly by the time you are actually getting shot at you have been through boot camp and A School. Those folks are slightly more mature than the average doofus that has spent that time playing video games and eating grandma's icecream. I'd be all for active duty military ID counting the same as being 21

I do not support any law that teaches college students to spit rather than swallow.

You're not supposed to spit out beer when tasting!

I guess it's ok if this is a first step towards something...  maybe some more reasonable attitudes towards alcohol in this country.  On the other hand, what a waste of legislature time!
Please do not reply if your[sic] an evil alien!
Thanks

I wondered how long it would take for this reply to be made. ;)

The legal age for beer and wine was 18 in most states when I was 18.  ;D

19 for beer & wine, 21 for hard stuff when I was 19.  And you know what?  The world didn't come to an end back in those days.

You can thank a bi-partisan congress and Ronald Reagan for the change, along with MADD.


I never subscribed to the "old enough to die in war" argument. I prefer the "I'm a damn adult argument."

Raise the age of an adult to 21 or lower the drinking age to 18.  That simple.

For health insurance purposes the age of adulthood is 26

Concur!  Military service is one heck of sacrifice in war time and in peace time.  Living under the Uniform Code of Military Justice is no walk in the park.
