The one in the youtube link I posted? How so? And she doesn't look underage. Where are you getting this from? Or have you seen some other Chicago girl?

Christ, Axver, do you know anyone who actually waited till 18???


Shoot, I waited until I was 25 (have made up for it since then --why I'm almost 46 and I had my 1st drink 'till you binge last week )

Actually, the European countries do. I'm not aware of any Western country without a minimum age under which you cannot purchase alcohol. It's just some European countries are very lenient compared to the US or Australia. If I remember correctly, a number are 14-16, though for harder drinks it may not be until 18.

I don't think anywhere in the Western world is going to let a 9 year old buy a six pack of beer.

Actually, I know some guys who are nearly 20 who haven't touched a drop of drink and don't intend to start any time soon.

Personally? I grew up with a wine connossieur for a father. I've been drinking wine for as long as I can remember. And before I turned 18, I found some vineyards were quite happy to serve me a small glass anyway, especially in rural New Zealand.

Having seen several "dancing" videos, I'd say if anything sometimes Bono has a case for harrasment.

People like to rag on the Milan girl but I preferred watching that dance over the other officially released. And certainly any dance post champagne drinking, pervy camera shooting of Zoo TV.

Also, it's not his fault if some hogs want to dance several times.

I don't think that Bono would ever get a lawsuit against him, I haven't exactly met a woman who goes to U2 shows yet that would NOT want to dance with Bono.... some don't care for much, but still, you wouldn't exactly hate it no?
to be fair, if i was dancing on stage with bono during a song about God, i'd try to grab his ass, too.

it's just so dreamy

You're right.... I think all EU countries are 18, EXCEPT from Holland (*Coughmycountry*)
You can buy drinks with low alcohol (<20%) at the age of16 here, and above 20% at the age of 18...


And Blueeyedgirl, I think it are alcohol rules we're discussing

the one you mean is 16 in Holland aswell...

Austria's 16. Italy, France, Belgium are. Germany, Greece, Spain, Norway, Netherlands and Switzerland are 16 for low alcohol, 18 for higher. I think Poland's 16. The rest are 18, though I may have missed a few.

I have to say that particular live version of Mysterious Ways is very sexy, edge has got this funky riff going on - kinda reminds you of Hendrix.

.....that Yahweh sounds a bit iffy, I'll end up cringing to death!

LOL buddy don't know where you are getting your info, OF COURSE every European state has a minimum drinking age. In most it's 18, in a few it's 16 but no lower than that.
