I've only got half an hour before my birthday ends! Ah, and it was a good one too, up until the end. Anyways, I was wondering if anybody would like to help me out and keep me in the somewhat happy mood I'm in by sharing some birthday stories. Please do, I feel the happiness wearing off.
By the way, I just turned 17, seems like a big one, but in truth, it's really just the awkward phase where you can drive, but can't drink, wouldn't mix the two anyways.

I'm gonna turn 18 on Monday. I started driving at 14 and drove by myself at 16 ( thats how it is in Arkansas). I also got my pilots license when I was 17.
Try not to get a speeding ticket while your driving or your insurance will double and won't go down until your 25. LOL Kinda sucks.

Lol, thanks. Driving at 14? How's that? Legally? Or with somebody in the car?
I probably wouldn't be much of a pilot, I've got enough trouble keeping my head clear and driving safely, that's cool though.

Nobody else going to share?

Yeah I got to drive at 14 but an adult had to be with me in the car until I turned 16.
I had a cool truck that I bought last year. It was a 98 Ram 1500 Ext. Cab Real Nice truck. Just the other day I didn't see a stop sign during the middle of the night and ran into a ditch. Smashed my bumper in and bent my Frame. It really sucked.

I hid this post due to the sheer stupidity of the situation... I would not recommend doing this... as a lot of trouble can be caused.
But hey... college kids are supposed to learn the hard way...
Well... my most recent birthdays I can't remember much of... and I TRY not to remember the next morning... that is the worst.
My buddies all seem to get me out and smashed... been that way since I was 15.
My favorite b-day party... last year. (22nd b-day)
My roomates decided that since it was my birthday... what a better way to celebrate but to hand out flyers and have a party. We got 3 kegs and a lot of grain. We made jungle juice and jello shots. We had 2 beer pong tables and we even had a couple of girls that were not all that shy. Thats all I'll say bout them... We live in a college town... so these types of parties are very common.
Well, we started the party during the day and it went till bout 3 in the morning.
My friends didn't want the left over grain to go to waste... and remembered that it is flamable...
The party was mostly outside and we had the "tiki torches" all around the pong tables.
They started seeing who could get the largest flame. My buddy spilled some on his shirt while loading up his mouth. To add to the effect... he was going to smash a bottle over his head while blowing the flame... Well... he cocked back the bottle and swung it forward when he was spitting out the grain. The fireball was huge. The glass was all over. His shirt caught fire and he had to run to the golf course behind my house and jump in the pond.
This caused quite an uproar and everyone went crazy.
The cops showed up bout 30min later and was clearing the yard and house.
They wanted the people who lived in the house out front and we all got a noise violation.
We tried to talk the cops out of it by offering them some beer and jello. They didn't want anything to do with it... even the "not so shy" girls couldn't convince them otherwise...
Well, thats bout all I remember... and that is even a blur.
We were just happy that nobody had to be taken out of there in an ambulance...
Most of the beer and alcohol was gone come morning... and there was a hell of a mess to clean up.
All worth it! Even the $250 noise violation... Afterall... you only have a b-day once a year!
We had decided to tone it down a bit with the rest of our parties... the landlord had threated to give us the boot if we get anymore complaints... ah well.
Oh... a quick disclaimer... don't try that at home. We were very stupid and not that it makes any difference... my buddies are crazy. If you play rugby... you have to be crazy... right?!
is a firefox extension that gives you stats on how long you have quit smoking, how much money you\'ve saved, how much you haven\'t smoked and recent milestones. Very helpful for people who quit smoking and used to smoke at their computers... Helps out with the urges.

Wow.. I really don't think i can top phishphreeks, but I'll give ya a story.
19th b-day (Legal Drinking Age here in Ontario)
My parents had split up about 3 months previously, and they both wanted to do something with me for my 19th. Since I was still back at home and all my friends were 18, I had no one to go to the bar with and agreed to do whatever my parents felt like doing.
My dad picked me up at 12am and we went to the casino. I had my first legal drink and a second and third, and lost 100 bux at blackjack. Then I won the money back and found a few more drinks. So about 3am, maybe a lil later, my dad drops me off at home. I get up around noon (still my b-day) and my mom said she was going to the liquor store... did I want anything.
So I said yeah a case of mikes hard... and I didn't mean one of those piddly lil 4 packs.. i meant a 24 of mikes hard (they usually don't keep them out front, u have to ask cuz they're in the back). So she came home with that and i drained 6 of them while playing on the computer. Then I had b-day dinner and polished off a bottle of wine. Back downstairs and 4 more mikes hard are gone. Luckily I've drank for a while, I'm a big guy, and on top of that I can drink a **** load. My mom comes down stairs around 9 and her and her bf, and my sisters bf's father are taking me to the bar. They each buy me a beer (3 drinks), then I get a loaded soda. The shooter lady comes around next, 2 buck shooters, so I got 10... drained those and chased them with another beer. It was kareoke night, so my mom told the DJ, so he bought me a tequila and a beer chaser. Then another 20 bux worth of shooters (10 more) and another beer. I ran into a guy from school.. we didn't know eachother that well, but we'd partied before, so I invited him back to my place where we polished off the last 14 mikes hard. I think i passed out around 7am.
The next day:
I was doing my OAC year of high school (Grade 13.. .yeah yeah Ontario sucks and had a gr 13 if you wanted to go to Uni..... they finally got rid of it tho)... So anyways.. my mom wakes me around 8.. i get up... walk to the sink... and puke... I start walking to the school and puke again along the way... I get to school and have a computer networking test first thing... if i remember correctly.. I aced it... then I went to my second class... I had an english debate on homosexual marriages. I won my debate and made a person on the other team cry.... I felt like God heh.... Then it was lunch.. I was feeling better, but didn't dare eat. Then came history... what do ya know.. Major test.... Then i had spare last.. so I went home and slept.
If I feel like typing out volumes another time.. like tomorrow if this thread is still active. .I'll tell ya about my 20th birthday which was worse...
G'nite and peace..
btw Happy Belated B-day Dude..

My 18th was the best, my parents finally decided to get me a car. And to think most others got theirs on "sweet sixteen" there is no such thing if you ask me.
