    US too strict?

    Well I find it unusual that there is different age limits on things in scotland than in us:

    eg us cant drink till their 21, we can (legally) at 18
    we can marry/have sex/smoke at 16

    most things seem to be 2 years younger here, what do you think about that?

    No, USA is just smarter. Why let some crazy 18 year old out of the streets, when in the USA they wait 3 more years and are more mature. To me USA rules are better for the best of us!

    One thing confuses me about our British system though... you can poison yourself to death with tobacco when you're 16, but you're not old enough to drink?



    I never add friend codes.

    I think this is the same in Australia. Legally, you are allowed to smoke when you're 16, but you still have to be 18 to buy them. That's how it is for Australia-land anyway. Not sure if Britain is exactly the same.

    Yeah i know its stupid.

    Also Flip, we can buy them here at 16, i dont see the point in being able to smoke fags but not buy them.

    also icetrash, i think 18 is the correct age, as most people (here anyway) are drinking anyway by then

    I don't see the point either, but hey, I didn't write the laws.
