18 is the legal drinking/gambling age in Australia and most country's except for the USA, where it is still believed 20 year olds can be deterred from booze by shoddy ID laws.
The age every child should move out of home (unless already gone) and go to work/university.
"I turned 18 yesterday and went to the bar I have been drinking at for 2 years and showed them my ID. They congratulated me for successfully tricking them. I am already addicted to betting on dogs/horses/poker mahines."
