At what age do you think it’s appropriate for someone to get their driver’s license?
16. But, I like how New York does it. It is called a ‘graduated drivers license’ and you can’t drive after dark until you are 18. Brilliant, seriously.
At what age do you think it’s appropriate for someone to first drink alcohol?
First time? Can’t say. But, I would support 18 in that you can go to war and buy a house and vote… so why not have a beer. However, are you mature enough to have relations on booze or drive on booze? Well… never.
At what age do you think it’s appropriate for someone to become sexually active?
As soon as they meet me. Jk. 18 would be nice, but I think 16 is reality.
At what age do you think it’s appropriate for someone to vote in elections affecting national and/or local government?
16. We need to do more to get young folks involved in voting and the whole process. Know why the world is run by old people? Because old people vote… every one of them. So, politicians only pander to old people.
At what age do you think it’s appropriate for someone to be conscripted for military service?
Yikes, that is a tough one. 18 seems good, just because that is when men are supposedly in their prime. Is that a cop out? Btw, let gays serve. Also, this is an old Friday Fives… but fresh answers. I couldn’t find any good questions, and I have to get to bed.
in fact, it would probably be interesting to go back and see my answers from a few years ago. However, I would bet they are almost identical, and I already told you I am trying to go to bed. Racist!
