Well I know this is quite a bit of self-plugging, but FINALLY! I am 21 and can finally go out to bars in the US with my buddies. Most of my friends here in the states are over 21 so It's been very difficult hanging with people while in college.
Love me or hate me, I've survived the last 21 years...here's to another 100!
If any of the PHX based members are in Tempe tomorrow, I'll meet people on Mill to celebrate. PM me for details.
As for everyone else: How did you all spend your 21st birthday????

Quoting mal787 (Reply 3): but i know it involced lots of drink loud music ,
I turned 21 in January, but that's not really anything special in Canada other than being able to go across the border and drink. I didn't get drunk that night, I went over to a friend's friend's house and smoked a vaporizer for my first time.
I didn't even get drunk on my 19th either. Why? Most of my friend's didn't want to because it was a school night.
On my 21st birthday, me & some friends went to the grocery store and bought a ton of booze and got in line at 11:59PM.
Transaction was rang up at 12:01AM. The cashier was laughing his arse off!
I was already drinking well before I turned 21 and getting in to clubs was never a big deal to me.
Totally hammered, bunch of college friends dragged me to a bar at 11:50 P.M and lined up shots with the bartender. When the clock struck 12. I had to down 2 shots and a beer. by 2:00 I had had 10 shots and about a pitcher of beer.
The next day was a saturday, and we all got together to watch the SEC and BIg 12 championships. It was the year Texas unexpectedly beat Nebraska and allowed Florida to get into the National Championship game for the 1st Florida National Championship. Of course Florida destroyed Alabama in that game. Wonderful dayfrom 12:00 till 11:59. Plus my college girlfriend had her own birthday presents .......
ahhh the good ole days.
Older than I just was ,and younger than I will soo be.

Well someone's got to do it:
I remember when I turned 21, one of my friends took me out and every place we went, he started going, "Aren't you going to check his ID?" I didn't have to buy a single drink that night as either my friend bought it or the bar we were at did.

That's awesome! hahah That happened to me in Japan....but it wasn't my birthday. It was a group of schoolgirls who thought I was cute....so they got me plastered.
Quoting Revelation (Reply 15): My father's way of teaching me a lesson was to drag me to church 100% hungover.
First time I ever had a hangover was when I was 17. My Dad's solution was to force me to down a Caeser (for the non-Canadians: Caeser (cocktail)) at 10 in the morning. I've never felt so nauseous in my life. I haven't had a Caeser since...
That's probably not as big of deal these days, as in some cities, there are strip clubs that don't serve booze and you can go in at 18. It was a few months after I turned 21 that I ended up in my first strip club (As part of a bachelor party, which is no surprise.).

Quoting dlramp4life (Reply 34): What made you start a drunk post a.net? Not trying to sound like an a$$ but the last thing I think about in my drunken adventures is catching up on posts.... that is just me though
lol that hasn't been the first time I've been asked that. I was on a.net the day after I got married or something lol. I was very busy being a good student in college (for my 21st) and right after I got married I had to be back for work, no time off
Oh and one more thing, in the other thread, I was studying alone, started to drink a bit, then reached a happy point so I wasn't out partying or anything. And no I don't usually drink when studying haha

Quoting PHX787 (Reply 41): Holy crap Doc, this morning one of the pots in my kitchen fell off of my counter and slammed into my sink and onto the floor. Scared me shitless and woke me up. I knew it was you!
