What's the drinking age in Texas..... I caught the end of a show called campus PD and a cop was making some guys pour their beer out on the beach. The guys looked over 18 years gold.

Why waste all that beer even if it was Bud...

Good Morning FaWtLys! I am excited. I found a new job that allows me to stay in the Houston area and it is a great opportunity. It's been a stressful few weeks, but now that it has been announced at work, I feel like a great load has been lifted off of me.

In the "it's a small world" category, I will now be working only 10 minutes from AZ's brother who is also a player in my Rise of the Runelord's campaign. Wolfthulhu plays in that game as well.

Since I have a lot of projects to wrap up, I gave my current employer about 4 weeks notice so I don't start my new job until February 6th. Grrr!

Congrats on the new job!!

As for being closer to my brother, I'm not sure if that's a blessing or a curse. Because if you're closer to him, then your closer to....his children!

ARRRRRGGGGHHHHH!!!!


F. M. Busby's Rissa Kerguelen series should be here soon. Also, my "new" copy of TCP/IP Illustrated Volume 1 and Volume 2 should be here next week.

Hey now! Don't be a beer snob. Bud is a perfectly fine example of an American style lager, and a decent beer.

Not like Coors.....

Funny way my mother found to be able to drink a coors. Add cashews. I don't know why but the flavor changes. Then you can eat the cashews after.

Which is something I've always disagreed with. If you can fight and die for your country at 18, if you can vote for President, why can't you drink a beer?

It's 18 here... Did most of my drinking at uni, after an altercation with a good friend that left him with a bloody nose and not my friend (for a very long time) I slowed down, I still drink occasionally but for the taste rather than with the objective of obliterating myself. Thinking back to those days I am surprised I am still alive. Maybe 21 is better in away - a touch more maturity my prevent a death or two.

I guess I'm in the minority when it comes to my wanting to raise the drinking age. I'm thinking 25, or even 30 sounds about right considering how many 21 year old college d-bags don't know how to act when they get a couple in them.

Anyway, I just stopped in to grab my wallet, and to check on you guys. Y'all have a good one.

~shrugs~ I had heard good things about it, so I figured why not. Besides, a good understanding of TCP/IP is essential for the CCNA and CCNP. Any little bit can help, despit the books being a bit out of date.

While rolling dice seems like a stupid way to make decisions for a novel. For a really great author anything is possible. I might point out that The Man in the High Castle written by Phillip K. Dick was partially written using the I Ching. Which while more specific than just a dice roll, still takes some big brass ones to make a novel by random.

We need to see more of this, IMO.

I'm for lowering the drinking age. Maybe it's just me and my particular wing of my people, but it takes time for one's body to acclimate to what alcohol does to it. Then again, there are some people/peoples who will NEVER get used to it. It's such a weird issue.


@Guy, welcome to FAWTL. :)

Re: beer. I have yet to find a lager that I find drinkable. I tend to prefer porter or stout. So I don't know much about lager....but even I know that Coors = nasty. Blech.

Also, the drinking age thing is silly. I think the idea is to keep alcohol out of the hands of high school students many of whom are 18 (like that works), but it ends up being more than a bit ridiculous when someone can serve in the armed forces and vote but not drink. Either you count as an adult or you don't. A little bit of both doesn't really work.

Just a little.

Up until the 80's most drunk driving fatalities were 18 years old. With the change to 21 for the legal drinking age the number of fatalities due to drunk driving plummeted. So while I do agree with you in principle, it does seem to have saved some lives in the least.

Yeesh! Bud has an after taste like bad eggs. Millers is probably a little better. Explains why Fosters is so popular in the States! :)

In Australia, our "common" beers are also pretty shocking. Carlton Draught, Toohey's New and Victoria Bitter probably taste better warm.

I think you can get Coopers in some States in America. The summer lager is fantastic. Some Korean beers, such as Cass and OB, tend to resemble American beers such as Bud and Millers, but have a more refreshing after taste.

Age ruls in Germany:

16 - buy beer, wine and everything else under 10%
18 - drive a car, vote, buy cigarettes and hard liquoer
21 - treated as adult before a court of law
