    I'm not sure if this is true. I would conjecture that you would see less incidence of alcohol abuse earlier in life (i.e. teenagers) in these countries.

    In any case I don't have any facts or studies to point to that would support or falsify either of these premises. Perhaps I'll ask my wife the public health educator. She tends to know such things and can point to evidence to back them up.

    Don't worry about it, cheap lesson.
    You can lose your degree at the university for plagiarism, get canned, etc.
    Just a good thing to know and follow in life.
    Your tellin me... I know 5 people in the Journalism department here who
    plagiarized a "what is plagiarism" paper lol. They got caught and something happened, they didn't get expelled but some kind of judgement was handed down to them. After "meeting your deadline" as the #1 rule in Journalism, do not plagiarize in #2, so i should know better

    I see what you are saying but the Brain stops "developing" at i believe 20 doesn't it? again most kids that do drink underage aren't drinking for the taste or in moderation they are abusing it.

    I do see your points though.
    I would agree with that, but you have to ask yourself where and why.
    Are they abusing it everywhere at that age?
    Or simply in countries with a legal age?
    Are they abusing it for the sensation of being drunk or for the rush of doing something new, illegal and dangerous?

    The brain stops "growing" in size typically in your 20s, but your brain is always adapting, learning and forming connections.
    You're able to continuously learn new things and train your mind because your brain can still adapt.

    It's almost like a muscle, you can be 25 and it may have stopped "developing", but you can still train, use and improve it.


    I m like a Ja Rule poster, cause I'm off the wall.

    Re: College presidents seek drinking age debate

    in a lot of countries the drinking age is 18 or less.
    and the driving age is 18 as well.
    some have the drinking age lower than the driving age and thats how i think that USA should handle it.
    get them accustomed to drinking before they can drive.
    Binge drinking only really occurs cause its the cool thing to do cause its illegal.
    once you have been legal for a couple years do you ever really binge drink?
    you go to the bars and are more interested in getting the ole "slap and tickle" than drinking.
    Have drinking at 16 and driving at 18 cause then first off nobody would drink and drive their first two years and would probably be out of the binge drinking era by the time they drive.
    plus the US is the only country that has the drinking age at 21.
    everyone else is lower.
    Plus just because that someone is 18 doesnt mean they drink and drive anymore than a 40 or 50 year old.
