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.
    Meh, the examples I gave are classic and common examples of people breaking laws (or rules) when it suits them. Obviously the chances of being caught and the punishments might be quite insignificant, but it illustrates my main point which is: people who get all high and mighty about the rule of law are hypocrites. Almost everyone thumbs their nose at the law at some point, it's just that an individual's level of bravery determines how willing he/she is to break ever more serious laws.

    Umm, I realise this is off topic. I'll shut up now.

    Won't stop people posting pics, though, TBH.

    The point is that people getting high-and-mighty about over-strict following of the law often do not understand the consequences of failing to do so. I'm not saying I'm following the law "because it's the law", I'm saying I'm following it because to not do so could have very, very... yes... d i r e consequences, and that all those in similar employment to me are very likely doing the same.

    In any case, I think we need worry more about

    What about the part of the forum rules about being detrimental to the atmosphere?
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    As regards the girls being lenienty treated - that's the idea of the massive fine. To discourage certain idiots to think with their ****s rather than their brains.


    I think I'd have been stricted in an off-licence than I was in a bar tbh. Also, I think the law changed while I was doing bar work, changing the person who gets fined from the licensee to he who served the underaged.

    Both can potentially be punished, TBH - it's the licensee and DPS' responsibility to demonstrate that they've "shown due diligence" and if they can do that then they'll escape a fine. Whoever made the sale is always in trouble regardless, of course.

    It's probably me but that second dude on the right, wearing the blue shirt looks like a younger version of Graeme Smith.

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?

    itbt i was asked for ID about 2 or 3 times in the 7 years since i turned 18 in the UK...over here its pretty much every night
