    As I say - that doesn't matter in the slightest to us guys who can get 5,000 fines. It's very possible that test-purchasers will use some sort of stuff along those lines. In any case, NUS cards are hardly difficult to forge.

    There's no penalty for watching a 15-certificate film when you're 13 (there is a penatly - up to a month's imprisonment - for selling a video\DVD to an underage person, and hence those responsible are every bit as careful about who they serve as those responsible for alcohol retailing) and the chances of getting caught for ripping CDs or downloading illegal MP3s are miniscule compared to those of being caught for selling to underage. As are the punishments.

    When there are such draconian punishments in the offing and such significant chances of receiving such punishments, you do not-so-blindly obey such laws and you'd be about the stupidest person in The World if you didn't.

    I don't understand why you wrote all that. Severe penalties mean people are more careful not to break specific laws. Who is saying otherwise or arguing against that.

    The ID'ing thing really gets my goat..

    Not really with the people who asked me for ID, thats their job, and I feel quite sorry for the little girl who had to ask this irate guy for his passport every other night...The fact that I needed to carry around a passport around the country I was born in when I went out at night, in order to prove that I was old enough to fight a war in Iraq, to fly a plane, and to get married and raise kids, but that I couldn't go up to a bar and order a coke? Whats with that?

    Another thing that annoys me is how girls are so much more leniently treated when it comes to ID than guys..

    I know the UK is a totallitarian fun policed terrorist state and all that, but why couldn't I have a sodding quiet coke in front of the footie?

    Eleven o'clock shadow with normal hair (well sort of)


    Shaved look (trying to look mean i think)


    Next the deadlock look...
    Spiked looks good, shadow looks even better.

    Hate to come off as an attention whore, but just had to share this :



    Made by Kev from PC.

    Anyway, still undecided which way to go after the wedding. Shaved or not? Should have created a poll, ah well.

    Hyperbole much

    I was probably a little more lenient with girls than lads when I worked behind a bar.

    Fact one: Girls of around 16/17 go out in revealing tops and push-up bras to detract attention from their age

    Fact two: Straight male bar staff aged 18-22 don't tend to look at the faces of these girls and as such have nfi as to whether they're old enough. It's on the house love
