To all the people age 20.

Yay for being a minority here. Does it get any worse than this?

Too old to be a teen.
Too old to get out of legal trouble as a juvenile.
Too old to start riding to be a pro.
Too young to legally drink.
Too young to rent a car.
Too young to check out a hotel room.

Lets make a club an be emo, since that's all we're known for.

Oh, you can rent a car. It'll just cost you double plus a pound of flesh.

If you are hot you can find someone to buy you drink, rent you a car, show you a hotel room, and ride you professionally.

It's more US-centric than American-centric, really. Not all of those things apply in areas of America other than the US.

In any case, the poster is in the US, so I don't really see how that is an unexpected point of view.

F**k off. I didn't start riding until this year (I'm 22), and I know plenty of people that will tell you I can still go pro at 25 if I bust my ass for the next 3 years.

I can definitely buy a drink and I'm 20 I can also get a hotel room if I so desired, although I can't rent a car.

20 is a pretty good age, for all that I've only got 2 more weeks of it left!

Because the Canadian is being a complete and utter Canadian.

hhahahaha don't I know it? I'll be 21 next month. I am not a drinker, but it'll just be convenient to be able to order a beer in a restaurant.

I'm waiting for 25, Hooray cheap car rental.

If boozing is your concern, get yourself a decent fake, you can also use that fake to get a hotel room if you want to pay cash, or if the names match up.
