At precisely 12:00 AM EST on July 9, that would be 9:00 PM PST (Board Time) on July 8, I turn 18. Out of my newfound love for this community, I invite you all to pick what I should do to mark the momentus event of leaving my legal childhood behind.

Oh, and if any of you have read the old thread on the IB program I posted, I received the diploma. That pleased me.

Note that this is not a poll so as to keep the suggestions unlimited.

He's American. Drinking age is 21 over there.

Still, surely there have to be other amusing diversions that become legal at the age of 18.

Theres still underage drinking, though... :P . Maybe you could just go out for a night on the towns, and maybe get some ladies?

Yes, but there was underage drinking before he was 18 too. :P

Well, going by what's legal now that wasn't before, you can always celebrate by going to the nudey bar and/or enlisting in the armed forces. At this point, I think the Navy's looking real good...

Ah, yes, the Navy. They've sent me many pamphlets in the mail about how they want me to become an officer. I don't think I'd get along well in the armed forces, even if I were in the tech sector and not a grunt soldier on the front lines. I'm not usually a cheery kind of guy, and I'd probably be bad for morale. :P

Two female friends of mine were supposed to take me to a strip bar at some point. I, however, have little desire to watch women degrading themselves for money while two insane women are sitting next to me egging me on to yell and carry on. As for Thuryl's comment along with Spring's: alcohol is very bad for the brain, and while it would be a good way to mark society's designation of my coming of age, I don't want to spend Sunday hung over or the rest of my life with a slightly lower IQ. I never said the activities had to be legal, though. I merely stated that I wanted to mark the occasion somehow. As you can probably guess, too, I've never gotten drunk before, so it would be something appropriate, if not for the after-effects.

I suppose I COULD find another way to intoxicate myself that's even more illegal, harmful to the lungs, potentially psychologically addictive, but not permanently harmful to the brain or physiologically addictive, if you get my drift, but I won't have my obligatory birthday post turn into a discussion about substance laws, so that's all I'm going to say to the alcohol comments.

Keep the ideas flowing, sirs and madams of SW! :D

Buy a house, or rent an apartment, or just move out.

You could get a credit card, or go see an R or X rated movie.

As for the issue of lung damage, you could just ask Dolphin nicely to send a little package of her home-made cookies over. :P Eliminates that little problem.

I would ordinarily recommend boozing with pals, but since you've already decided against it, I won't push the issue. It's worthwhile to take your time with drinking and such activities; I'll be the first to tell you that succumbing to peer pressure when you're not really ready to make the plunge is a bad idea. You'll doubtless try alcohol at some point, probably in college, but there's no need to think about that now.

Just get together with a few friends and have a nice chill time. Enjoy your birthday!

The special ingredient is love ;)

You know, such things won't cause respiratory problems if used occasionally, so I wouldn't worry about it for a one-time celebration.

I nod rapidly. Love, like all things, is good in moderation. ;)

And with ADOS's suggestion, I expect there to be much love tomorrow.

Spend some time with your mother and father, making it their special day as well. After all, they are primarily responsible for your creation and development into the type of person you are today.

Plan a road trip. Get out and see the country. Sleep in your car and do odd jobs along the way to earn gas and food money.

How about doing something really unusual like skinny-dipping for apples while blindfolded?

Well, if you're going to stay legal, you could go golfing or something. There's got to be some good golf courses around Miami.

Golfing in tropical storm force winds...while eating dolphin's cookies...romancing a goat, skinny dipping for apples, playing D&D, and making sure my parents are there to see it all.

What a tapestry the community has woven. Thanks again for your input!

Buy cigarettes and porn. Not that you have to smoke/look at it, but just because you can.
