It's not fair, you not conforming to expectations! How am I supposed to develop a stereotype of you if you do this sort of thing?

Passed the first long ago. Good chance of living until the second.

You didn't say which year. I choose the year on Gliese 876 d.

Nah, not 46 hours for a year. How about the length of year for Pluto?

Sidereal Orbit Period (Length of Year): 247.92 Earth years, 90,553 Earth days.

I would raise the age of consent to 50, but only for men. A Woman would be free to have sex with any man she wished, provided he was at least 50 years old.

Only people who are less than five years old and more than 25 years have the right to call themselves omnipotent.

In America you become a full adult at 18. You can vote, marry and take out loans.

Yet you can't drink a beer until you are 21. How is this legal?

The "age of consent" seems to vary between 14 and 21 depending which state you are in.

In most areas a 14 year old girl can go to a birth control clinic and be issued "the pill" or have an abortion without her parents being informed.

You're just being ridiculous, a nose is on a person for a reason, and, if you cut someone's nose off, you could be charged with assault with a deadly weapon.

It's not a matter of cutting off a nose (unless you want to spite your face) but it's a matter of being legally permitted to use it. If all people under age were forced to breathe through their mouths they would miss smelling all sorts of bad things and the thrill of getting a nose license would permit better discrimination in eating proper meals and complaining about pollution. Nose locks could become a profitable business and all sorts of fancy nose covers would become quite stylish. Young nosy people would be illegal. But then the nose might be renamed for secret use. A nose, by any other name smells just as sweet (or sour for that matter).

It should be noted that the astronomer Tycho Brahe had a silver nose so evidently it is no disgrace to be a silver nosed cyborg.

Is that likely? If the law were to explicitly support action X, is one likely to be charged for action X?

Edit: Sand is clever. :)
