Happy Birthday to me...

It’s my 18th birthday. Really, no great milestone, in functional terms. I can drive in New Jersey after midnight now, which I’m going to take full advantage of tonight - party with friends, then staying out as late as I want to. And one less year until I can legally go into a bar, I guess.

sort looses the excitement if you’ve already done all the stuff, but illegally…

Happy Birthday NinjaChick!

Not true…you can vote, and you can reigster for Selective Service.

Ok, after conferring with my wife, you do not have to register with Selective Service (assuming the “Chick” part of your username means what I think it means).

Huh…you couldn’t before? Last I was aware, it was: permit at 16.5 (meaning you had to have a licensed driver with at least three years behind the wheel with you), and full, unrestricted license at 17. My, how times change.

Anyway, happy birthday! :slight_smile:

True, I’m excited about being able to vote, and no Selective Service for me.

Driving: Permit at 16, limited license (1 non-immediate-family passenger only, no driving between midnight-six AM) at 17, unlimited license at 18.

And thank you. :slight_smile:

Happy B’day. Hope it was a good one!

Happy Bithday!

Happy birthday!

Happy belated bday NinjaChick! Hope it was a good one.

Happy birthday! I turned 18 last year myself. It’s all downhill from there.
Just kidding. :smiley:

Wishing you a good day, a good year and a great life.

And many happy tax returns!

I’ll be 55 on the 24th. :smiley:

When the hell did they do that?? And how do you get to the diner if you can’t drive? :slight_smile:

Happy Birthday, hope you have a great time!

Happy Day Day to You!
Happy Day Day to You!

Happy Day Day toooooooooooooooooooooooooo<sucksinbigbreath> to
You! :smiley:

Happy Birthday!!

::tackles to ground and escorts out of thread with police helmet over private parts::

They just changed the laws recently - a lot of my friends two years older than me were ‘grandfathered’ out. And, as I alluded to, the laws aren’t always followed, cuz, see, it’s only illegal if you get caught, and in order to get caught you need to be pulled over for something else…

(which makes me realize that my late night trips going 85 down a local highway [speed limit 55] may have been dumb…)

And also, Woo! Streakers!

Don’t get too excited, it doesn’t take much of an excuse to get iampunha to streak through a thread :wink: Happy birthday, though. I just turned 18 this past June. For whatever reason, I thought you were a good deal older than me. I’m not entirely sure if that’s a good thing or not, but I’ll say it’s a compliment :smiley:

Ooh, a police helmet! I’m so flattered!

And for the record, it has been at least a week (longer, I suspect; I haven’t been posting much of anywhere but the D2 thread) since I ran nekkid through a thread.
