Situation #1: A twenty year old walks in to a bar knowing that the legal drinking age is 21. He does not have a fake I.D., but attempts to order a beer anyways. Of course he gets carded and denied.
Situation #2: The same twenty year old searches the world wide web for Coors, only to be stopped once again by an age verification page. The aspiring beer drinker screams, "DAMN, I CAN'T WIN! THEY HAVE FIGURED ME OUT ONCE AGAIN!" Of course he puts in his real age only to be confronted with the message, "Sorry Junior. We run a tight ship around here. Swing by when you are 21." Since he put in his real age, the age verification won't just let him change it. But, there is a loophole. He can go to the Coors Light web page and do the same thing, except this time, for some unknown reason, he puts in a fake age that says he is 21. He gets in to the site and is greeted with a new message, "Cold beer. That's our policy." Isn't that the refrigerator's policy?.....Sorry, won't go into that too much.
That is just a little, fake scenario. Of course it would never happen because teenagers aren't honest. That's just a blanketed fact over all of them.
But think about how silly it is to ask somebody's age by the honors system. The bartender doesn't just take somebody's word that a patron is 21, they need an actual document.
What if car websites worked like this. If you go to Ford.com you will not be asked your age but are instantly greeted with their new line of automobiles. Whoa, whoa, whoa there. The person looking at those cars may not be old enough to even drive them! How careless of Ford to do something like this. A twelve year old could be looking at that website and trying to think of all the damage he could do by driving really fast while on the cellphone. Shame on you Ford.
