We have Guy Fawke's Night - get drunk with friends, set fire to meat, burn a big pile of wood, incinerate an effigy of somebody whose significance most people have forgotten, ignite the only explosives HMG will let us use freely, then spend the rest of the night in casualty without all our fingers. Much more wholesome that running the risk of a trip to the dentist...

Yay, i cant wait! if only a instructable on how to get underage alchohol was around...
Intro: Underage drinking is really dumb, but if you must do it, do it this way. Step 1: Find a hobo - If you can find a hobo with an ID, great. If not, try a legal adult that still hangs out with 14 year olds (myspace?) Step 2: Give them money- Fuh. Der. Tell them to buy alcohol. Step 3: Slap yourself - If you actually drink underage (besides the occasional sips to taste), then slap yourself, with a hot soldering iron. You deserve pain.

Scotch? Blech! You ought to try Irish whiskey, from the world's oldest distillery.

| have had Irish whiskey, and although I don't drink much nor very often, I believe it is much smoother as is a good rum, still I wouldn't care for any "underaged" stuff ;-) .
Rum? Blech! That tastes like fermented perfume.
