I think that might have something to do with just being Irish though .......kidding. I know my grandad was that way (he's Irish).

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Here in Alberta, it's eighteen. Where my family is from, PEI, the age is ninetee - it varies from province to province in Canada.

I've heard in Iceland that it's sixteen!

Yes, that's true.
...I know a chick who, uh, "consented" at fourteen. To a sixteen year-old guy. I know she regretted it. She really regretted the day after when she told her friends.

See, not to digress but I don't understand how and why girls let that happen. Im nineteen and have never been kissed......no not lesbian, that's the first guess of everyone at school and yes I do have lips, am not morbidly obese or have anything obvious reasons (no offence intended to others)......according to my current boyfreind who is in Fiji (so theres a reason lol) says Im just a bit scary as in Im 6ft, ride horses, handle snakes, am not a yes person etc etc
So yeah....I don't understand how girls can let themselves get into that.....

I can't see it either. I mean, there are some mature fourteen year-olds, but really - I just don't see a mature person doing that so young. There could be more to the story, you never know.

Kind of same here. Even it's 18, our culture is very alcohol-related. Tho traditional, (stereo)typical Finnish drinking style is take nothing during a week, except students and other groups like that who drink few more times in a week, and then go plastered or at least drink something during weekends.

Että koskaan en ole yksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Vaikka myrsky hetkeksi tyyntyykin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Ja pian taas uusin hönkäyksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Hei tuu mun luo, pieneksi hetkeksi. Puhutaan, varjoni, valkoiseksi enkeliksi."

The drinking age here was 18 when I was nearing that age. I can say that it did not lower the amount of binge drinking amongst my friends.

Binge drinking is a very Irish thing to do the stereotype as sad as it is to say it is true!
I could ring my friends 7nights of the week and they would go out.
I also think its soo funny to see people moan and give out on good fri and christmas day because the pubs are closed for TWO days of the year its an issue!

The pubs are closed for 2 days out of the whole year and they're having conniptions? Seriously?

What, they can't think ahead and buy enough liquor and beer to tide themselves over? C'mon, I know Ireland has to be just like everywhere else; they must have package stores.

I'd rather drink at home, anyway. I'm not paying someone my hard earned money for watered down drinks, a smoke filled atmosphere, and a bunch of rowdy drunks.
