Out of the Blue

"Ash vs. Evil Dead" in a Ratings Decline So You Better Start Watching. You have been warned (thanks RedEye9). Don't look at me, as we are doing our part here, since Optimum eventually worked out its dispute with Starz and put the channel back on the air.

Now if they would only revive Blunt Talk.

Blunt Links: Thanks Ant.
Play: Snail Bob 5.
Stories: Daylight saving time starts this weekend. Here’s how things would change if we got rid of it.
Mount Shinmoedake: Warning over Japan's James Bond volcano.
Science: Nuclear fusion on brink of being realised, say MIT scientists. Thanks JDreyer.
Media: Apparently cows love the accordion. Actually a Concertina.
Don't blink.
Wave under the ice threatens people fishing.
Follow-up: Florida shooting: NRA sues as Florida enacts gun-control law.

People aged 18 are considered adults "for almost all purposes and certainly for the purposes of the exercise of fundamental constitutional rights", the lawsuit says.

So buying assault rifles? Fine. Buying a beer? No. Yeah. Ok. *insert Twilight Zone theme music here*


Can't rent a car until you're 25.

Yeah... it's almost like they said "ALMOST all purposes"

But, since two exceptions exist, obviously, no matter how many examples one can come up with confirming that 18 years is the age in which people get ALMOST all adult rights and responsibilities, it means that the generalization is utterly false.

But yes... society definitely doesn't treat young adults as actual full-on adults. Frankly... they shouldn't. The fully-mature 18-25 year old is the incredibly rare exception.

Also, certain political offices have an age requirement, such as 35 for the President.
