What is it with young kids and booze?
You aren't missing anything. :V
I have no problems with "Supervised drinking", i.e. Drinking booze under the supervision of a parent.
I get more loose with a moderate buzz, because I'm always tense and thinking things through too much. Just a bit of the happy juice is enough to let me relax and be more natural. And I'm not ashamed of that.
*admits defeat* ya still didn't get the picture, any of you, but it's fine. Argument over.
Topic may have been dropped, or it might not have, but I still want to make this comparison:
I hate when people who have no experience with alcohol and its effects start lecturing about how it feels to get drunk, and how "stupid" it makes you, and how it instantly transforms your average, well-mannered person into Slutty McFightsalot. I am of the opinion that the frequency in which people fuck themselves up while drinking relies a lot more on societal standards and how we excuse shit just because someone is drinking (when really, we fucking shouldn't), therefore they go ahead and do it anyway.
I know shit like this relies on a person's own individual chemistry and a number of different factors, but I have not once wanted to fuck someone that isn't my fiance while I was completely fucking wasted. I've not started a bunch of fights. I've not done anything I regret, really. Because I'm not completely fucking stupid, and I know better, regardless of how much the scenery is blurring and how much I want to shout out the lyrics to Don't Stop Believin.
It really just comes off like a virgin who tries to write passionate sex scenes. A grand majority of the time, I'm sitting there face-palming because of how inaccurate and blown out of proportion everything is. It's annoying.
And then those same people look down on you for knowing better, and still enjoying it for what it actually is.
What the fuck?
Having picked little shits like you out of pools of their own vomit and then helped clean them up till EMS services could stop by to make sure they weren't going to die of alcohol poisoning...
I just have to say, it is people like you who made my life miserable.
The fact that you think booze is some kind of miracle awesomeness makes me know that you aren't mature enough to handle your booze. This also makes me assume you're white.
As Katt Williams famously put it: "White people only have one thing on their mind when they go drinking: TONIGHT WE'RE GONNA GET FUCKED!"

Just a few legitimately tasty drinks (as in, better than goddamn soft drink) assuming you can get past the feeling of SIN and MALICIOUSNESS from partaking in the devil's drink:
I'm betting a lot of the "ew alcohol" crowd are: 1) One to two years over the drinking age 2) Hipster as fuck, 3) Tried a sip of beer and went "welp, none of that for me" OR 4) a few years below the drinking age, and again are just trying to be edgy
edit: Lucky 5) don't understand that there is actually a range between 'sober' and 'throwing up all over the place', and you can drink without instantly hitting the end of that scale.
The issue isn't about alcohol as it is that Americans are less responsible than people in other places. If the driving age were raised to twenty-one, which I'd argue it should be, the need to regulate alcohol would be greatly reduced.
We live in such a weird society. You can automatically tell what one's sexual orientation is from just the bands or games they like, can measure one's I.Q. from said interests, and can even tell what they do in real life!

Also, people need to distinguish between "need to drink to have fun" and "have fun, also am drinking". A lot of the bitter 16-17 or 22-24 year olds are having a lot of difficulty with this idea.
The truth of the matter is that you've delayed their experience of alchohol for so long that by the time they get to learn how to deal with it, the mistakes they inevitably make - at 21, 25, or 38 - are crippling.
At 11, 14, 16, 17, and even 18, that's not so much a problem. A drunk kid is much easier to deal with than a drunk adult, and an adult who was a drunk kid at some point is far less likely to want to become a drunk adult - because they know what happens if they don't moderate.
Understanding succeeds knowledge when faced with curiousity. A kid who feels how much fire stings, won't jump into it as an adult. A kid who's told that "fire burns", might just be curious enough to want to learn what it's like as an adult.
Or to put it simply, your claim is the opposite of true.
