The reason they card for lighters is because kids break them open and use the butane as an inhalant. Places are starting to card for gasoline, lighter fluid, paint thinner, etc. now for the same reason.

"Huffing" is an excellent way to permanantly damage your brain.

No need to worry now, its when you buy alcohol and the words "check ID" come up on the screen and the clerk just bypasses...then you know you're old...

Yeah I cant believe they card for lighters now.. its nuts

I was like um.. I'm 32!!!
crikey - i wish when i'm 32 one day people will misatke me for 16. it's more likely to be the other way round at this point - people have always thought i'm about 5 years older than i am... was fun when i was 16 "ooh, i look 21, yay". not so fun anymore now that i'm trying to grasp onto my youth.
and no, i'm not that old at all actually, its just that i have a birthday coming up in a few weeks and therefore i'm very aware of the years ticking by at the moment!

Oh yeah, me too! Always surprises me to realize they are talking to me.

But the worst thing was when I went to a club where "they card everyone" and they were...but when it came to me, the guy just waved me on in. Waaaahhhh

In Iowa I had to go up to the register and show ID just to get some over the counter cold medicine.

i've been carded twice, ever. i didn't get carded when i went to see an nc-17 movie (never was carded for an r rated movie). i bought some booze tonight and didn't get carded there either. i guess because i had my dad with me they didn't think my dad would let me buy booze underage. i guess we look trustworthy it makes me mad though because i could've just gone in last year and bought my damn schnapps

You had to be 16 to get into farenhiet 9/11?? What the? It was rated M here, you only had to be 15. That's a bit up-tight don't you think? Or am I missing something about that doco?
