This looks like it goes into greater detail than I've ever read - it addresses precocious puberty as well as general physical maturity:

Your first point is largely true - but people certainly mature faster when they take on responsibility. I'm not suggesting we go back to child labor, but if you want them more mature at a younger age, ramping up responsibility matters.

People mature faster physically now largely due to improved diet. I can get you sources,if you would like them.

I am being honest, and I recognize what you're bringing up, here -though I'd really suggest that even in today's society, most 16 year olds are vastly more adult than child.

If you want to make that argument, the brain finally reaches peak, on average, at around 25. We should raise it, and really make them anxious, by your point. I'm a fan of small amounts for the younger crowd, at mealtimes, like they do it in Europe.

It wasn't all that long ago that beer brewing in Texas belonged to Shiner...and Pabst, I suppose...but it's wide-open now, and there are so many excellent breweries that I've lost track. Probably my favorite at this time is Real Ale - they brew a number of my favorites - Black Quad and Real Heavy stand out - but Revolver is amazing with their Blood and Honey as is Lakewood with the Temptress. The Kraken has to be the best I've ever had, but finding it borders on insane, and it doesn't come cheap!

Actually, I'm in Austin...posting this from a Starbucks, no less.

As one human to another, I wish goodness on your relationship.

There's a lot of truth in your post. I'm in total agreement here.

I never could get into black metal - well, not past some of the more theatrical stuff, like Dimmu Borgir, Gorgoroth, and maybe a little Behemoth.

Beer, liquor, wine - but that's today. Tomorrow it may be the reverse. I do enjoy them all, in moderation - but the only one I can call myself moderately knowledgeable about is beer.

I'm not even vaguely sure what could be wrong about it. It's a tradition. I'm essentially non-traditional, but I'm glad that the cultural traditions get preserved.

I drink a stupid number of coffee drinks, from black to latte, with a preference for iced. I love good beer, my favorites being good barleywines and Belgian quads. I love Cape Cods and Long Island Iced Teas as far as mixed drinks go, and I'm insanely partial to amaretto.

Never actually read the bible, have you? Try it sometime.

Not on any legal ground, but honestly, if they aren't having children, why would I care?

1 point

Yes, I definitely would - but it's a complicated thing. Emotions are unpredictable things, and the future is a lot like juggling, when you're learning - it's amazing how little things can become magnified, and it all fails. I'd make sure not to go into it with blinders on, but it's got beautiful possibilities.

I hope it works out well, whatever you decide.

1 point

I really don't think it would help. I can see some good reason for it, but I'm also concerned that we'd get some innocent ones along with the guilty. Repeat offenders, genetic evidence...things like that, then yes.

I really don't care.

If there was something there, I wouldn't shed a single tear as they cuffed her- but I didn't expect a damn thing. Is she a criminal? Likely. Are the republicans barking up the wrong tree? As always. What she's actually guilty of, they do on a daily basis - it's called selling out the nation.

That's not "backfiring", that's addressing the issue. It's not a partisan issue.

Districts need to be undone, and made into regular areas that make sense geographically, and laws need to be put into place preventing this bullshit anti-democratic nonsense.

The longer you treat them as kids, the longer they'll act like kids. When we changed the drinking age to 21, what happened?

When we assumed most were adults after puberty, they got jobs and led responsible (more or less) lives as young teens. Physically, people mature younger, now, but emotional and mental maturity is stunted because the societal message is that they're children.

This is how snowflakes get created.

We know that Project Veritas does this - you know, the real fake news of James O'Keefe.

I want to stay informed. What you call attacks, I see as healthy disgust.

...and Obama. Don't forget his part in this. And congress, for not having the balls to stop it.

As despicable as they were, ousting them caused a vacuum of power - and believe it or not, it was always in their best interests to keep the terrorists under their thumb - so they did. Without their hamfisted rule, things got worse - as I predicted.

I'm pretty familiar with them, but I could really only name the more well-known ones.

Edit: It's worth it to read them. They're short:

Bernie Sanders' record speaks for itself. He has fought for the people all of his career, starting in college, when he fought segregation. He marched with MLK. He's been an effective senator, even through republican senates and administrations, and has stood out as the single most popular politician for years now.

Trump has surely scammed an astounding number of people, if you're the sort of person that would call that leadership.
