    Another random thought... You can drive the car to the theater at 16, but you can't get in to see the rated R movie.

    At 16 as well you can consent to sexual activities, but aren't allowed to see naked people or even topless ladies


    Edit: off topic but... ages 13 and up can watch PG13 movies which can be filled with quite a bit of shooting and violence. Now take that same movie and add in a couple F-Bombs and now its rated R. I ask which is more detrimental to society?

And should they raise the age of tobacco too then, or what about the age required to responsibly drive a 3500lb vehicle? It's kind of like saying your an adult but you have a 3 year probation period before we give you full adult privileges
    That's exactly where I think a equal-protection challenge would be brough in ref: the idea of raising the drinking age to 25....

    Don't worry, even then it can be suppressed with copious amounts of booze

    Are you referring to my sweet and diplomatic inquiry regarding your feelings on MADD as catching hell?

    Like someone said a 25 age limit of alcohol purchases, will not chenge anything... Does any one have the stats on DUI related crashes, death injuries.

    What is the ratio between some under 21 dying and someone over.

    I completely see your point. People also mature at different rates, and I've seen articles about inmates in prison having less development in certain areas of the brain, such as those which govern impulse control.

    So what do we do? Make everyone get an MRI to prove that they are ready to handle adult privileges and responsibilities? It's hard to know how to apply what we know about brain development to issues in the real world.
    Make them apply for an adulthood license.

    LOL. Hey, nobody ever said we have to be fully mature ALL the time. What would be the fun in that?

    I understand your question about what makes 21 a magic number. When the drinking age was 18, at least it coincided with the age of majority. Age 25 makes sense too, because they say the human brain doesn't fully mature until then. But I too have always wondered what makes the age of 21 so special, other than tradition. Yet, as you say, making people wait until 25 does seem unenforceable.
