Quick Thoughts on a Tuesday Morning

Posted: October 20, 2015 in My Whirled

The Thinking Viking has pondered this one for years.

Why, in America, do we consider people “adult” at 18 – at least, adult enough to vote, get married, start families, sign legal contracts for lifelong commitments, bank loans… life loans.. i.e. be “ready” to fight and die for “our country” with a machine guy gifted by Uncle Sam… and yet….

These kids are still not “adult enough” to buy a god damned beer until the magic age of 21?

Twenty plus years of “hmmmmm ¬†weell,…” and this one eludes me.

Still thinking about it.
