So I turned 18 yesterday, which makes me a barely legal teen! I can now purchase alcohol, go into clubs, get a firearms license, buy a knife, get a credit card, etc!

Here is the Beer Of The Day. I could only find 1 pic on my comp of some beer I had so its more than 1 beer.



Sorry if i disappoint anyone

I still get carded for cigarrettes.

I don't understand not being able to buy a lighter when you are under 18. I don't know of any laws to that effect, unless they are trying to prevent "aiding and abetting" underage smoking....

I will just add this tidbit as fact #11948 to my list of "Why America Is Screwed".

Bastard...Ill have to settle for a bolt gun, after I wait about 4 or 5 months before all the paper work and stuff is processed.

Theres also no freedom of speech law or anything here, so when people say "free speech", I inform them of there being no law here and they go all upset and call BS on me.

We cant carry any weapons either, and we have to run if we get attacked.

I'm 19 now, and I've had people not sell me cigarettes even AFTER I show them my ID. They tell me I look like I'm 15 and to go somewhere else.

Edited to add: Sorry for the sorta-hijack. Happy birthday!

I have had no problems buying lighters in the past.

No, I don't smoke.

I can do one better. I recall a local store refusing to sell my kid brother candy cigarettes. Candy. Not that that is even close to being the law or anything, but its sad to know such stupidity exists.

No Foster's?

I thought that was Australian for Beer.

Throw that Corona crap away and pick up some Tecate, make sure ya' put a lime in it, then you'll know what good Mexican beer is suppose to taste like. By the By, have a Fosters for me mate. No worries.

Fosters is brewed in Canada
Link Posted: 5/8/2004 6:23:10 PM EST
Fosters? Hell no! That stuff is shit, so we send it off to America. VB is made by the same company as Fosters (Carlton United Brewery) and is a hell of alot better.

We dont get many mexican beers here. Corona is all I could find, but I was in a hurry so thats all i got.

They are considering banning candy cigarettes here, or they already have banned them. This is because they think the kids will think smoking is fun. Same with kids drinks which look like grog, or grog which is "marketed at children", like bacardi breezers and stuff.

Is that fosters on the bottom shelf? KILL IT! KILL IT IN TEH HEAD!

I should clear up that it was my bday on the 8th of May, which I think it is still there. Its the 9th here already

VB the nectar of the grogs!

I love that stuff.

KB tooth? If we do have it here its not very popular. Ill check out the grog shop next time and have a look see.


Best thing about VB is its cheap. Cheap and good. And its bottles are easy to store (except that one)

Well if were here in US you could get an AR, but not a beer.

I also had the card for lighter thing happen to me.


I dont know if they got MD 20/20 there, if they do get a bottle and learn why you dont drink MD 20/20

You are banning swords too. Won't immortals (Highlander style) be seriously impeded in thier quest for the prize??? Good thing I guess, if some Aussie won the prize and mortal man was controlled by some guy like Steve Irwin....


I can only imagine that the beer in the pics is your equivilant to our college beers, i.e. Natty Light, Bud Light, PBR, etc.... I am a Silver Bullet fan myself. Happy Birthday!!!
Link Posted: 5/8/2004 9:20:27 PM EST
OOooh VB, Man I wish I could get my hands on some!

I haven't had any since 98, I've got to get back to AUS!

I lived on the suff for a while.

No, swords are being "regulated", just as guns are. You will need a license for a sword.

College beers? Light beers are for chicks or people who like the taste but dont wanna get drunk or for business men in functions.


Hmmm, CloningBagels in a "BOTD" thread....
