You have to submit paperwork no later than one month prior to your birthday to a government agency that determines the validity of the enemy claim. If the claim is approved, the enemy in question is notified one day before the birthday that they can be legally killed on the day in question. So, they can flee, but, the government agency is required to report all monetary transactions on the day in question to the the person celebrating the birthday. If they buy a plane ticket, check into a hotel, etc, their location will be known. Smart people will use cash only and maybe stick to fleeing by car, but you never know. Smarter people will use surveillance on their enemy prior to their birthday, and track them.
I fully support this holiday. However, I think until you turn 18 you cannot use any sort of surveillance, wiretapping, ATM / Bank info, etc. Only your skills and senses. That is how boys become men.

I can't really argue with that. This begs the question, though, of when are you old enough to be allowed to kill an enemy on your birthday?

It's a birthright. I'm just saying that for the first 18 years you need to do it without technology. At 18 you can then go fucking Jason Bourne on your enemies, but until then, you do it old school style. You question friends ad neighbors, get in your enemies head, find out where he'll be next, and you get there first.

So you think it's ok to have an 8 year old kill an enemy? Maybe this all starts at age 16 or something? I'm totally down with the no technology thing, as I said, but, just not sure this whole murder an enemy thing is cool for kids.

Forgive him, he cannot help but think of this in terms of bar mitzvahs and "coming of age" things like that.

Whew! I made it through the day.

How about World Soup Day? We would all eat nothing but that all day, in recognition of its vast nutrients and flavour. Soup is also highly symbolic...every bowl is different and unique. Each of us would be linked by a rich tapestry of liquid, taste, and colour...if only for a day.

Pretty much. If an eight year old can 1.) have an enemy. 2.)swear vengeance upon said enemy, 3.) track, outwit and defeat said enemy, then we're not talking about some stupid whiny 8 year old. We're talking about a Warrior, man.

Don't forget filing the paperwork two months ahead of time. I mean, if these 8 year olds are meeting deadlines? Fuck, not only should they be allowed to kill an enemy, someone should give this eight year old a job.

I say we make tomorrow Crazy Train Day. What you would do is find the nuttiest person you know, or hire a private detective to track them down, and put them on a train, preferably run by the Australian Transit Authority, and derail that son of a bitch. While it's being derailed, the titular Ozzy Osbourne song would be played. It's a win-win, guys.
