Sorry but the TINT thread got me all pissed off, and it too early for me to be getting irate at work :P
Why are there STATE laws on EVERYTHING!!! this (doesnt count for you Canada peoples) is the United STATES of AMERICA!!! not the United States of TEXAS!
I went from Oklahoma to Austin Tx, mind you a 8 hour drive 1 way, just for spring break with my ex a few years back... NEVER going back. Austin was koo, the people were koo, the laws were gay. The group ran out of brew so I being the newb to Austin was voted to go get more. I drove around for 4 hours (entirely too long to be looking for beer and liquor) and went to 7 different stores and got kicked out of all of them, why you ask? Ill tell you
IN TEXAS!!! gah... gay f'n state(sorry for you texans but argue with this i dare you) IF YOUR OUT OF STATE YOU CANT BUY LIQUOR... you have to have a TX id... meaning you have to have a TX address, and go thru all the registration crap just to be able to buy liquor from a store... now clubs dont care but i wasnt club hopping at the time... just trying to get some beer and couldnt because i didnt have an id.
I found 1 place out of 8 stores... WAL-MART... saving grace, they took my id (had up-to-date maching that could scan the id to make sure it was real) after going thru 3 cashiers and 2 managers, for gods sake, at 23 you should be able to just go in and show them a NEW id, with the holograms, and bar code on the back, and all the techy crap in it and be able to buy in the US of A without having to have 50 different ids!!!!
but no... not in TX... grr
k im done
