Since when did 16 year olds become capable of deciding their own future, let alone that of a country? If they are relying upon headstrong teenagers to see them through, then god help them.


At 17 my only interest was learning to drive. Even at 18 i was only really interested in getting into University. It's only in the last few years i've taken any interest in how things are run. So based on myself, i could probably justify raising the voting age to 21.

After reading this, I have to agree!

Marriage no longer a key gaol for girls

"The Girls' Attitudes Survey polled 600 boys and 1,200 girls aged seven to 21."

WTH? No surprise there really, after all, it is the BBC!

Gawd help us!

Authors like Kurtzweil and Vinge say it's a "Singularity".

Funny how that misspelling does get you to the article. Play on words?
I thought gaol was a Jail.

Sorry about that :)

Marriage/gaol. What's the difference LOL.

But asking a seven year old about marriage? Sheesh!

Good for them, why should marriage be a goal in a girls life?
