A couple of glasses of red wine with a meal has been demonstrated to help with cholesterol. ask the French.

One must never tolerate evil. For first, evil is tolerated; then embraced, then ailed as being good, then it becomes unlawful to do what is actually good.

We know Chisantrix. But that doesn't change the fact that alcohol is bad for developing brains.

Not my place to legislate morality. If people want to give their kids alcohol the that's their choice.

It's an illegal choice. It's not about morality. It's about brain chemistry.

And people who start out drinking small amounts when young don't always become alcoholics. history bears witness.
BTW, the first American coffey shop was established to provide an alternative to drunkenness. And now we're addicted to caffeine.

It isn't about the addiction, it's about how alcohol impedes brain development.

I know, just thought I'd add that interesting piece of trivia.

But they still wont let you drink for another 2 years.

Technically, I can as long as the permission of your parents / legal guardian and  on their property you can still drink if you're under 21 in America. You just can't if you're out in a public place like a bar or club.

I've had sips of my parents and old siblings' drinks and I don't think I like alcohol that much even in small amounts so that doesn't really matter to me.

Yeah, the taste does grow on you if you give it a chance, but I really only enjoy the ones that actually taste good.

True. I personally don't like IPAs (kind of beer), but do like other varieties. speaking of which I think I'll get a beer now.....

I'm more of a cider guy. They taste fruity, they're usually fizzy and they have lower alcohol content.

I LOVE CIDER! real homemade cider, not that pasteurized, sweetened stuff.
