^ *silently sniggers* I'll bring drink with me then! a-hard-days-night-george-10In Ireland you're able to buy fake IDs for €20 on the internet (and they are really well made as well). But why would you really buy a fake ID, 18 isn't that far away from the time the majority of people start drinking at 14-16 years old- that and an older sibling/friend can buy it for you. Simples! 

Over here they've become very strict with the whole ID control. I used to work at Lidl, and we had those ID scanners, which could sense whether an ID was fake or not. Other supermarkets have been using it too. There's a lot of inspection going on and if they give alcohol or tabacco to kids under 18, they can lose their license which allows them to sell it in the first place. So they've been quite careful with that. 

I also never really got all of the fuss about alcohol. When I turned 16 the legal age was still 16, and of course I tried something, but it wasn't really until 18 that I started drinking. Why not just wait until your 18th? What's so cool about being able to buy beer? I don't really get it and I also don't really care for it. Why let friends buy you vodka? Why are teens so desperate for alcohol? Just have a coke, man!

You could make a banana boat and then take it out into the sea.

But were on apple roof how will we get to the sea? or would we bring the sea to the roof?

It can be used as a means of safety when i push folk off the rooftop edge after they have had too much to drink and annoyed me. 

Scotland is also battling against fake ids and underage drinking. Any shop found selling alcohol to those below the legal age limit can be fined and/or have their license suspended or revoked. Any adult found buying alcohol for those underage can be prosecuted (probably result in a warning or a fine).

^ Oh rebellious teenagers with their rebellious ways. 

Here's a spoiler: I don't actually drink a-hard-days-night-george-10 It's a running joke among my friends to make me appear as some 'rampant-vapid alcoholic' when I don't touch the stuff. I also take it upon myself to take the mick out of any person who pretends to be drunk whenever I go out. The amount of people who stumble around declaring "OMG I'm so drunk #wasted", and the minute they see their parents sober up immediately, is quite interesting.

One of my acting buddies used to sell rolled up "joints" of random non-high inducing herbs to people for €10 and the amount of people who said how "high" they were was hilarious. 

Idiots

how do you make beer out of Bananas don't you need other stuff like hops and barley?

As with all the suggested recipes other ingredients would be needed, true. Not many in the case of Banana Beer. Cereal flour and water basically. It's a tricky one for home-brewing though, and you need to know what you're doing.

@meanmistermustard I agree with the health and safety aspects, but with everybody crammed on the roof - and more joining all the time, we're going to have to take some precautions to prevent falling Biblers whatever. I would suggest we fit a catch-net around the edges of the roof (which could also act as a communal hammock).

@Ahhh Girl No! No! No! Naughty AG! Remember, there's a police station just down the road, and it only took them around 40 minutes to get to the rooftop in 1969! What could possibly be done in a hammock in 40 minutes? Don't answer that!

Weird to end your comment with a comma!

Another weird thing noticed, logged out it gave the time of your post as 11:30pm, but logged in it changes to 12:30am. Looking at it, seems all the post times differ by an hour when logged in or out!

Well, we know the weather, it's January 1969. Catch-net and canopy methinks!

That's probably because you have your time zone set to somewhere other than London time (which I believe is the forum time). For me, if I'm logged in, it says you posted this at 8:27, but if I wasn't, it should say 12:27

Well when it rains... I don't mind...

When it snows we all take a drink and jump in the communal hammock... Except so many things sound wrong with that idea, so ill just stay up in the snow!

I am in London. The site is no longer London time but is now UTC (Universal Time Code). Joe commented on the change in another place a few weeks back when trying to sort the "Birthday " lag. So I know why, it's just the first time I've noticed it. We (the UK) switched from GMT to BST (+1 hour) a few weeks ago. So it seems UTC is similar to GMT, but different enough to change the times.

Of course I'll let the mods out, if any of you want to be on our crowded rooftop. Paul probably would like the office better...

and while you let him in I can sneak in and see what it looks like! a-hard-days-night-john-3MWAHAHAHAHAa-hard-days-night-john-3

I bet they have the Carnival Of Light tapes in there... The extended version of Helter Skelter ... A bathroom... ahdn_george_05 We have no bathroom on the rooftop, although it is better than back in Rikishish. (I'm sure I spelled that wrong.)

Ill be sure to describe COL to everyone once I emerge... If I'm not caught an sent back to the beginning!
