    WOW, so until that late age you are not responsible for your childish actions? WTF That is the dumbest thing I ever read in this forum and that is saying something.

    Answer the questions.

    You wouldn't mind them living next door to you?
    You'd let your kids hang out with them?
    After all they're just "children", right?

    In which case biologically speaking a person is not an adult until thier brain stops developing. Generally in a persons mid to late 20's. And yet legally they are able to make what is considered adult decisions much younger than that. So thanks for proving my point. That point being that age does not determine whether someone can make an adult decision or not.

    WTF dude!! As an adult would YOU decide to shoot someone jogging down the road in the back? I know I certainly wouldn't. It was a CHILDISH decision.

    Don't tell me what to do. No I won't answer your retarded questions. They are stupid and irrelevant to anything I've said.
