Meh, give me screen shots of the interface and not just pictures of combat and cut scenes. I know it's not a FPS, but the screen shots sure make it look like one.

Marching with someone gives you the right to say that the dead person would agree with your political views?

Kinda proved Heston's point.

He had a point? I thought he was just a figurehead for the cause.

It's been mentioned several times that Papasmurff said they were at most 17, not 20, and there is a big difference between 17 and 21.

Still only a misdemeanor.

The restaurant was committing an illegal, reckless, and potentially dangerous act.  The issue is the restaurant's irresponsibility in not enforcing the law.

Let's not be over dramatic. A 20 year old drinking is reckless and potentially dangerous? How so more than a 21 year old? Without making assumptions this time. The OP doesn't state he called the cops because he was scared they were going to drive.

Excellent post Semaj, especially your 6 points. We really need to know a lot more than we do, but from some of the posts here I get the idea a lot of people are non-drinkers and think alcohol is the root of all evil so there is no excuse ever.

One correction, underage drinking is a huge no-no in the military. From what I hear while it does happen in the dorms sometimes, most of them are smart enough not to do on base or any where someone who would know them would see them (I would be legally bound to report them if I saw for instance). The ironic thing is that at a lot of overseas locations they can drink at 18, but when they come home to the States the law is 21 again. Just shows how silly the law is.

Why is everyone assuming the underage drinkers were going to get behind the wheel?

Does the jerk factor change  if one of the 17 year olds was a DD?

Yeah people are assuming a lot.

Edited to be less smart-assy. smile
2491  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Was I a jerk? on: April 05, 2008, 09:24:12 PM
Fed did sum it up quite well. The management should have done something, I agree, but calling the cops was over board.

I find it interesting that a lot of you seem to see a big maturity difference from a 21 year old to a 19 year old. For someone who works with a large portion of kids in that age group I don't see much of a difference. The 21 year olds are just as much dumb asses as the 19 year olds, but the 21 year old is more dangerous because he's out there drinking legally and doesn't think he has anything to worry about while the underage guy doesn't want to draw attention to himself. Of my coworkers I have a good idea of who the underage drinkers are and I have seen quite a few alcohol related incidents with both sides of age group. Without a doubt the majority of irresponsible drinkers are with the 21+ crowd.

As for everyone who keeps relating it to drinking and driving, your problem isn't with underage drinking, but with the driving. Papasmurf should have been calling the cops on all sorts of people I am sure if thats the case. When you guys are out at a restaurant do you sit there watching people drinking heavily that may be driving and then call the cops on them? This is no different.

Thankfully society isn't as self righteous as an internet gaming forum. smile If someone did this in my group of friends 20 years ago or now, they would be ostracized for being an ass (unless it was their responsibility to be looking for such things).

You are right, nothing screws up the world quite like college kids drinking. If we could stop that, the world would be a better place.

The business in question was plainly breaking a very solid law set in place to prevent the kinds of things I was talking about, whether this situation would have ended that way or not.

So then, do you call the cops every time you see a lone person drink 3 drinks at the bar and then drive home? If you walk into an apartment building and smell pot outside of someones door do you call the cops? If you see someone speeding do you call the cops? Etc. I see people plainly break very solid laws daily, some of them potentially dangerous to you and your family and I don't do anything about it. In this case, Papasmurf did not call the cops because he was worried about them drinking and driving, he called the cops because some underage (I am guessing college age kids since he knows them) were having some fun at a bar. No one was hurt, and there was no implication in the original post that this was the case.

And I also disagree, as a HS aged drinker, we were far more likely to drink somewhere where there would be no driving as compared to an adult. We were much more careful about getting caught.

I work with two guys who lost family members to seperate car accidents. One lost his son about a year ago and the other lost his nephew just a week and a half ago. In both cases the other drivers were underage and drunk.

You did the right thing.

So a drunk driving 20 year old is different than a drunk driving 21 year old? He also didn't discuss whether these people were driving, so your statement is irrelevant. If they were driving then yes he should have called the cops on a drunk driver regardless of age. But then again I can point you to any bar in the country and you will see someone tipsy drive away.
2496  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Was I a jerk? on: April 05, 2008, 08:21:57 AM
I didn't take a potshot, it wasn't a question, it was a statement. For you to do that, I made a correct assumption that you didn't drink when underage.

How old were these people? 15 or 19? I could understand if you called the cops on a 15 year old to possible help the kid. I don't see the difference between a 19 year old and a 21 year old drinking, but then we could discuss the morality of drinking laws all day. I will say, if underage drinking is such a threat where you live why is it ok at home but not in public? What is the difference?

In my opinion, since you don't work for the place and didn't have anything to do with it besides your moral superiority (that is a potshot), the adult thing to do would have been to go to the underage drinkers in question, since you know them well enough to know their ages and kindly say "Hey guys, you know you shouldn't be in here, get out of here".
2497  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Was I a jerk? on: April 05, 2008, 07:01:11 AM
It was of none of your business and I don't see why you care. Under age people drink all the time, but I am guessing you never did.

I don't think there is any doubt that S&G existed from my very limited knowledge. IIRC there are 5 sites which could be it, they just don't have enough enough evidence to narrow it down. There is an excellent episode of Digging for the Truth on the subject ($1.99 on iTunes).
