You like to squabble, Woodsy likes to go clubbing. Each to their own :p:
Nicely put and she isn't even a good squabbler, this argument has been won hands down for a while now. lol.

I was so desperate to turn 18 so clubbing would be easier. I don't go out as much now as I used to when I was underage, it got really boring really quickly.

A matter of personal choices, I'd be happy if you'd respect mine. American Chick's sig says 'I am a Liberal' - be nice if you could be a liberal and respect the fact I like to go to clubs.
Ok fine. Your life isn't completely meaningless. :rolleyes: sublime's right though. What fun is it if you only want to hear one opinion? I just don't understand what joy comes from destroying your dignity at a club.

I don't accept that because I just don't go clubbing with my life. I find your 'meaningless' comment derogatory and completely out of line to be honest. I don't know you, you don't know me and I am not the one who dragged this off the original thread topic. In fact I did apologise to anyone in advance if they found underage drinking wrong. Furthermore, 'destroying your dignity' - how do you know what I get up to at a club? And I do take others opinions but not when they are insulting.

I'm sorry, I don't mean to insult you, and I don't so much mind underage drinking so long as it is done in the in the vicinity of your home. I would much rather keep the underage drinkers off the road. I can only assume what you "get up to" at clubs. In my eyes, merely drinking underage would destroy my dignity. How may I ask am I insulting you? By making statements that could only aid your health?

Firstly why is everyone on his back? Fair enough he likes to go out and have fun with his friends. Fair enough your idea of fun might not be the same of his, but at least have the decency to respect his idea of a good night out. He hasn't commented on yours, so why do it to his?

I'm also 17 and i enjoy going out every weekend to clubs. Fortunately for me i look a lot older then what i am, so i've never been ID'd. I was worried that i would on New Years Eve though as i was going to an Over-21's night, so i thought up every way possible of getting some fake ID. In the end i decided just to risk it, and lucky enough they just let me in.

Although some of my friends do take fake ID's with them. One friend found a site that does fake ID's and they had a European Driving License on there. It looks real, and because it's a DL, he gets accepted every where. You just need a good cover story. Other then that 3 or 4 of my mates use the same idea.

They have photocopied there passport and edited it on the computer so that it says they're a year older then what they are. Then they've just printed it out onto normal paper. When they get to the club they say they have no DL, and don't want to carry there passport with them because it's expensive to replace it should they lose it so they just carry a photocopy. It's a ridiculous idea, but it's worked every time so far.

Look I'm an intelligent person who drinks casually, to socialise and to have generally a nice time. I can assure you that I would not be on the 'road.' The fact that I am only 17 is immaterial so much as it is unlucky, what's going to change within in me in one year's time? The age of 17, particularly in the UK is an age of limbo - I can drive, can have consensual sex, can get married but cannot drink, watch pornography or see an 18 cert film. I realise there must be barriers, but the drip-drop stage of getting your liberties from child to adult is farcical - either make it all 18 or all 16, or even 17 (I'd be in favour of 16). I'd guarantee 17 year olds would way out number 16 year olds who drink, its a fault of system more than anything. I am for all intents and purposes an adult in my mind, just not by age.
The insulting part was about my 'meaningless life' - apology accepted.

I rose to nothing, I put forward my views in a calm, collected manner whilst you spewed out things like what you have just said. That comment alone proves you had no basis for an argument. :hello:

It sounds good that everything be given the same age limit but I believe that kids should be able to drink before they drive. That way they could get it out of their systems before they hit the roads. :rolleyes:

my advice is just go somewhere that you will actually get in to. And then maybe go with someone who is 18 so they get served at the bar with no fuss. Most of the people I know who are 16/17 go out clubbing all the time and manage to get in somewhere (otherwise why would they keep going) Just choose your venue carefully!!

i remember when i was 15, clubbing was so much fun! but now im actually 18 it is a bit annoying going somewhere and it being full of 14/15 year olds. esp wen the bouncers id you, but not he girl in front of you who is clearly underage but they let her cos shes wearing bascially nothing. but there is a difference between 17 and 15 tho, i think most 17yr olds go clubbing and to bars it doesnt bother me.
