    how come a 15 yr old boy, can walk into a store, and buy a lawnmower, and not be asked for proof of age? the mower, if misused, can kill or cripple him, or an innocent bystander. how come, a 15 yr old boy, can walk into a store, and buy a bottle of pesticide concentrate, without being asked for proof of age? if misused, the product could kill or cripple him, do the same to others around him, and poison drinking water, and contaminate the soil, for the next 500 years. how come, this same 15 yr old boy, CANNOT buy a 6 pack of beer, that will, most likely, do no harm to him. and, at worst, will only make him vomit. why? can anyone tell me?

    Wow, guess ya need some more work there Bobby. You are spending too much time bashing the young'uns. That same mower, if misused, can kill a 35 year old man as well as the 15 year old. Why should he need proof of age??? Gimme a break man, why can a 15 year old boy buy a quart of oil for a car? That can poison him or do harm to the environment as well. Get a life dude.

    Dang, if she didn't just go up several more notches in my book then....

    BTW, if you search you'll see that no-one started threads this time asking where you were either.......your hiatuses are getting longer and your supporters less and less....... :laugh:
