Absolutely ridiculous, no wonder US young people are confused.


Pffft... and young brits are so clear and level headed in comparison. 🙄


When was the last UK school killings by students?
Lol, google it and get back to me.


What do school killings have to do with lowering the drinking age. If you’re suggesting that lowering the drinking age would have an influence on school shootings , you’re sadly mistaken.

Psychotropic drugs are most likely the main cause of many shootings.

It was a general conversation where you questioned British young people compared to those in the US.
I retorted with the fact that British young people don't kill their classmates in school. Perfect comeback to your reply.
US young people can die for their country but cannot buy a drink, no wonder they feel disenfranchised and kill each other.
They must be really confused compared to Brits who can legally leave home at 16 as I did.

Yes, leaving home at sixteen makes one wonder what you were running away from. Must have been all that great parenting Brits do with their young adults, according to you.

Then you admit you’ve had an alcohol problem ( no big deal many of us humans do )... although your country is far superior in how it deals with alcohol and young adults... again according to you.

Not buying into your bs CCG.

Lol, you are a grumpy one aren't you.
Argue my specific posts and quote me would be a good idea, you need to shy away from the personal attacks maybe? I haven't attacked you at all, I've only asked you to stop attacking me, and instead debate the issues we have been.
Debate is fun, but being attacked personally is not.

EDIT
On-topic, a young person can do anything at the mall if they are not harming themselves or others, I'll ignore it.

I’m not attacking you... making fair points countering the arguments you made. If you can’t see the logic in them... that’s on you.

You’ve been rather arrogantly putting down others, and saying the UK is far superior in dealing with alcohol and young adults.. yet your own personal story does not reflect that superiority.

Get off your high horse , and I might not have to point out the painfully obvious lack of superior parenting in your life.

I left home aged 16, working and living independently. No wonder your young people shoot up schools n stuff the way they are treated like babies. I'd rebel if I was a young person in the US.


This is really the crux of it, isn't it? We have a ingrained need to mock the young trying to learn the ropes of adulthood, get their footing figured out. It's almost like American society as a whole has some twisted Peter Pan By Proxy syndrome going on, in the older echelons -- they don't WANT functional younger generations, they want perpetual babies to scold, so they mock or sabotage their efforts at every turn.

A lack of faith and support for teens & young adults really does undercut them. It doesn't motivate for s#. I thought older folks were supposed to be "wise"? They don't strike me as very wise deliberately making life harder for those behind them in the Age Race. If anything, they come off as sniveling and petulant. Maturity is defined as more than just a number, guys.

The amount of parents allowing their teens to get away with it sans repercussions IS. Had I ever spoken to my father like THAT, flat refused to help him or do a chore and stomped off, I would not have been allowed to do anything but school and the two daily meals at home before and after it, and sit in my room bored to tears until my attitude adjusted. I find it borderline repulsive that people are ripping on Warrior here, while refusing to admit the kids & attitudes they revile would not exist if not for the attitudes and influences of mommy and daddy's own generation. Stop kicking the can down the road, you're just as good at blaming others as teens are.



What I gather so far is that a lot of posters, although they won't admit it is that: it was alright when they were growing up and eye candy is cool as long as its "not MY DAUGHTER"


WarriorMH

Stay for the conversation, you bring some valid points. Some people growing up refuse to be swayed by trends and cheapening their values for a quick fix of validation in the eyes of their peers.


I would remind everyone if i may, whole religions and cultures seem to lay down "values" and "laws" controlling breeding and the birth and death process.

It would appear that we inherently are nothing but "farm animals" in the long run; put here on earth to be drained of our energy. work till we're 60-65 and now 70 and longer "producing" for an elite who thrive on draining spiritual energy through war and violence.

Historically societies rise and peak only to be thrown back into dark ages time and again.
You have to really ask yourself if this is by design.

Who benefits?

Western civs are discouraged from having replacement birth rates at the moment.
The same couldn't be said of the rising dominant forces showing through from Islam.

It seems almost by design that the Wests cultural heritage is attacked from all fronts. To want to retain your heritage is to be called a Nationalist or White Supremacist.

Why are we constantly not allowed to call it for what it is. PC culture designed to quieten all dissent.

Gosh, different worlds. There is no legal age limit in the UK for parents to allow their kids to drink alcohol. It is allowed so long as it does not harm a child. Sounds crazy yeah, but it's true. Having a few drinks is legal and part of growing up for UK kids.
The age 16 thing only applies to bars, a parent in the UK can allow a child of any age to drink so long as the child does not suffer. Your 'kegger' party thing is weird because young teens in the UK expect to be able to drink at house parties. There is no mistique about the drinking, no 'cool parents' getting down with the kids, it's just legal here and what people do.





How old do you have to be to drink alcohol in the UK?
Young people aged 16 and 17 may consume some types of alcohol – namely beer, cider and wine - as long as it is with a meal, and they are accompanied by an adult. It is illegal for anyone under 18 to buy alcohol at the bar of a pub, or from anywhere else selling alcohol. 16 May 2018

That bolded part refers to buying it, not consuming. As far as I know, Cornish is NOT lying.

I contradicted nothing.

If I influence a small group - my family, then so be it. Until and unless that small group grows to a critical mass capable of influencing the other 350 million or so individuals who are doing likewise in this country, what we see in pop-culture has little responsiveness to me personally and my small family group.

That sort of change doesn't happen overnight and it often takes generations.


How many generations? I can see people here complaining and they have grand children 12 or 15 or so, I'm 17, how many generations it takes? Maybe it doesn't matter anyway

If every generation had done something to prevent it then who knows but complaining about it just because now affects you directly i don't think that's right, because it was happening before and no one cares unless they are affected so it just keeps growing

I don't know anything i'm just saying, i'm sorry if i offended you i did not meant to, i'm just like this most times, i'm sorry

I don't think i have anything else to say now, i know it will continue to go on forever and there is no point

No opinion on the topic but I am just overjoyed beyond words, young one, that you are here. I am the "everyone," and the, "people," you keep mentioning. I just can't believe the gullibility and unquestioned acceptance that millennials give anything with a major media conglomerates as a source, the acceptance of if not demand for big brother to come on home and settle in as they cry for utopia, demand censorship and thought police, circumvent due process expecting majority conducted trials with mob execution of sentence if it even gets that far and immediate character assassination doesn't take place... I am erasing whT I had after this point since I will do just what you hate and what you assure me you never did anything to deserve and I will simply then take comfort in knowing you guys are making your way around alternative view and alternative media sites and be hopeful but I must say I think you and I both know you are the exception and not the rule. Heck just your competent command of language has you set apart from your peers, you do know that right?

You do realise there is nothing more embarrassing and pathetic than a parent trying to be one of the 'kids' the best buddie, dad dancing and all that.
I have always had a laugh with young adults, my child and my friends children. They are an important part of our life tribe. Maybe you feel like a boring old bastard who can't relate to younger people?
I actually feel sorry for you if that is the case.
Dad dancing, give me a break lol, you old stick in the mud boring old people, I'm glad I haven't caught your elderly disease.


Point being .....Were they laughing with you or at you?

There is a difference

While they might think of me as boring (par for the course with teens)

They probably think of you as a stupid old fool!!!


If the cap fits......

No this is completely wrong

You don't get it at all

I would never party with some old guy that is going to try to indoctrinate or become weird and touchy

I would party and I do with guys that are street wise, that can listen and tell me what I wanted to know with no judging, and their wives are supportive and fun, and have lots of tips and make you feel family

I know people like that, who own bars and coffee shops and have kids and some of them are friends I go out with every weekend, they have parties and we are invited and everyone is equal and having fun

I dont laugh at then, they make me laugh because they are smart and know how to bring up a great atmosphere and are not afraid to integrate and learning our stuff, we can talk whatever and they listen and support instead of criticism because

I would get bored to death in one of those parties where everyone has their fake happiness mask and are just showing up to friends and neighbors

Or those stupid kid parties that are just an exucse for the parents to party on their own once kids are asleep, lame mediocre life's

I have learned so much in the past year from older friends who own bars and coffee shops and restaurants, they allowed me to learn things I could not anywhere else, they invited to parties, introduced me to other business people, teached me how to act with them what to say and be street and business wise,and defended me when some tryied to get too close or touchy or stuff, all between parties and dinners and stuff, no big deal stuff but enough from what I wanted to learn and live

You think all people are idiot ignorants that will think an older guy is a fool because he can understand and integrate, but I know lots of guys like that and they are respected

You know what a fool is to me? Some old man uncapable to learn a bit but that pretends to care and fakes it, lame poser people is what I laugh about, when they don't even have a clue what we're talking about but pretend to get it. I hate fake people

You don't get it at all

I'm not as good as it would seem, autocorrect helps a lot. I started learning English 7 years ago and spent 5 years with private tutor, I tried to master it but I know well where I still have lots of learning to do

I don't see the point of continuing on this thread and in any case I started college tomorrow and will not continue on ats because it is ridiculous how some people just jump on attacking no matter what

I know they don't even read they just snap back, because I have said things that clearly show I'm a girl and they still assumed I was a guy in their replies, they did not even bother to understand or read what I said and that's lame

Anyway I just have to log out now, this is not what I wanted to find, I wanted to talk and figure things out not be the end of hate in so many ways and this is not new, lookat the demon dog thread, apparently some american think I am ruining the site because of having an opinion while being Russian

I came here to practice English and learn more about american culture but it end up being something else

Time to go out, I don't need to think about this thing I have other stuff I have to think about

Is it considered normal for teen girls to have double d tits now or is that just a fad? Do parents even know what their daughters are wearing or do they just not care? Im not saying wear a robe but i dont think short shorts and a low cut top is appropriate attire for a teenager either.

Hmmn.... I wonder if you do..... I'm not the one complaining.





oh you see this is what happens when people cant get things at all

i talk from my experience on my age, you felt offended somehow, hit a nerve? are you sad?

most older woman i know are way more capable to be honest and true as far as i know so i can't say i have seen the same behavior. But thanks for the wrong assumption, it says a lot about you

you already judged me lmfao, a bet you are "American". From the north? where also other people are "American" but are not daily butt hurt and with low self-esteem? or which part of the American continent do you belong lmfao

Of course i am talking from my point of view, did you finish grade school? were you enrolled in a debate class at all? do ypu even know how to have a debate or all you know is to get butt hurt and insulte because you don't have a reasonable answer but to run away yelling at me and covering your eyes

i guess you are a real adult, oh thank god a real adult showed up to tell me off, i was so confused before but now i know the mediocre way in life

thank you so much mediocre butt hurt adult, i don't know what i could have done without you looking down on me, ohh saviour, now i can go spread mediocrity all over the world too!

anyway i'll take a shower and go out to first day of school now, see you in 6 months or so

have a sad life as you already chose

Also here's some good stuff from two countries that are not complaining like chickens and instead keep going strong no matter what, unlike some other that need safe spaces for idiots that can't handle anything but what they want to hear and otherwise go into a temper tantrum lmao. You so weak

Go an hate it harms you more than it does to me, you just don't even can see. "So sad so crazy"



Because you know Mexico And Russia we don't feel shame or try to hide our past, unlike some other countries *wink*

I love Mexico and i came to live here because i really love how people are not crazy, i don't know if you get me, but as you said " i probably am the one that doesn't get it" lmfao


Why i bring all of this up? I bet you want to ask. Because i have been treated here in Mexico the best ever, except what i felt at home, but with you in the US is always the same, trying to put down everyone, always trying to show up like you either have more money or more experience or more street credit. It makes you look lame and even worse but you don't even see it. You look lame, and with low self esteem issues, why do you always have to prove yourselves to be better than the guy next door? Why can't you just be?

You always have to show up and at the same time look like a poor soul desperate for attention. And then you complain about teen girls also looking for attention when you can't even figure out your own low self esteem issues lmfao.

And it goes all the way down to kids, when i was in middle school in the US it was the same thing, everything trying to put down the other kid and i had lots of bullying going on just because of my accent, and because i wasn't very good with english, i was called lots of things and the stupid smirk on parents when we were going out was unbearable, you are lame lame lame. I have moved 11 times since i left home when i was about 12, no where but the US and with US citizens i have been insulted or looked down. Why are you like this? So full of hate?



Anyway here's something i missed but i have seen it here in Mexico too so i'm happy. I know you probably will hate it because you love your guacamole toast without the brown people showing up preparing next to you but oh well, i have the real deal here and feel happy about it




I read the story if pocahontas, she was naked most of the time wasn't she? when she was 12, but i guess that's not "American" history

I would still love to watch america send a group of musicians and native people to represent the country like Russia and Mexico does. Where are they? Who do you send when you have to represent the US on international events? I bet the guys you send are not native american,

Do you even know native american language? And you talk about customs or how to behave on this continent that doesn't even belong to you

I know Spanish and a bit of Nahuatl, which was the native language of the Aztecs, what can you possibly know about native customs, and you complain about clothes because you can't handle reality and you don't even have a say because the native custom was way worse than what you can handle lmao

these threads amuse me greatly

they always boil down to :

i dont like < insert > so < insert > should not be allowed

and the problem here [ apart from it being the tjin end of a very dangerous wedge ] ,

is that people are attempting to install themselves as arbretors of what is acceptable .

yes - society does it all the time - we mandate that under 18 year olds cannot buy tobbacco or alchahol

but " teh fashion police " ??? FFS get a grip and move on

thinks should only be banned or perscribed - if they pose a credible threat you the participant or 3rd parties
