Being under 21 is considered underage ? I thought that age was 18. What has gotten in the mind of these people. Since I'm underage I'm going to go out of state buy hookers, booze, and cigars. Odd world we live in for sure my friends. In the mean time I'll party , get aids, and what not.

Plasmid it depends on what you're talking about. 21 is for drinking, gambling, and a few other adult oriented past times. Under age at 18 is a different subject altogether. Every state and country has limits to what they consider under age for certain subjects. So the age limit could be because of alcohol or other restrictions that are specific to California or El Pueblo de la Reina de Los Angeles.

But optimization and low-level hardware access means games will looks better than on that combo of epic parts.

actually its not 21 for gambling, but because most casinos of any merit give you free booze while you are there, they have to go with a no one under 21

This depends on the individual states gambling laws. There are a few states that allow gambling at 18, but for the vast majority the gambling age is set at 21. In Nevada, the law specifically prohibits anyone under 21 from gambling. This has nothing to do with alcohol being served. The gambling establishment would welcome the increased business from the 18 year old crowd and would be more than happy to set up special alcohol free areas especially for them, but Nevada law is currently set at 21.

no they wouldn't, a casino wouldn't welcome anyone under the drinking age, because booze in your system leads to impaired decisions. they make more money from the booze being free for all than they would not offering it and let people who are 18 gamble.

i just looked it up, yea, some states don't allow gambling at all even outside casinos... but those ones are really backwards as it stands anyway.
