Today our favorite Canadian young person is a whole year older. At his age, being one year older is statistically significant.

We all appreciate the sensible young people like Top Hat that show great promise for the future of civilization.

Happy Birthday Top Hat, and many, many more!

Ah the light it's so bright! *dims lights* Thanks all, and I am glad to finally be sixteen. Now if I ever find true love, I can go and legally get married in Quebec.:P

16? Hell if you were a girl in Arkansas, you'd already been married to your cousin and had 3 kids!

Congrats anyway Old Timer! I can't even remember when I was 16. Course I can't remember yesterday either! :snork_lach: :snork_lach: :snork_lach:

Can you drive now, or is the age for driver's licenses different up north?

Happy Birthday, btw. :snork_okok:

I can get my G1 now, and then after 8 months(if I take driving courses unless it is a year) I can get a G2, but alas I don't have money for any of that, and one less car on the road helps the earth.:)

What's a G1 and G2? Is that like our "can't drive with passengers" and can't drive at night" licenses? In the state of Washington that's the way licenses are done. Sort of a 3 step process.

Ya, it is kind of like that.

G1 you need to drive with an adult and can't drive big roads and at nights.

G2 you can drive whenever where ever but you can only have a certain amount of passengers.

After a certian amount of time you can drive normally.

When I got my license back in the dark ages we just did a written test, then a 20 minute driving test and if you got 80% combined averaged score you were issued a license. Of course gas was $.25 a gallon too. :snork_lach:

I once bought a brand new car for $2,395.00 and then filled it up with gas that cost $0.299 per gallon.
Not long after that I bought a house for $13,500 dollars.

You'd be lucky to buy a car these days for what I paid for my first house.

Ay, when we were little it were all up hill in the snow all the way to school, and that were in the summer. My only cup had a crack in it so it were broke in half, but we never had anything to drink anyways. I were lucky to get the scraps that the neighborhood dogs left behind. Folks thought we were rich because I did have one shoe that I never had to share with me brother or sisters, but it were a right shoe and we could only afford left feet. Aye, poor we were.

There were no use having a drivers license in them days, as horses were not invented yet. We used to ride our dog to church on Sunday, except there were no church cause the whole town were too poor. We had to save up just to become atheists, we did.

Hey, we could use a system like that here - hardly anyone drives "normally"!

Dang, it's a good thing you were born a male or you'd've had nothing to play with!

Aye, but the kids in our town were so poor I had to let them all play with mine.

Well, that's great! It's good to learn how to share at an early age, it makes it so much easier later on when the IRS comes aknockin'!
