What I wanna know is why I can go to the store and buy a copy of Pulp Fiction, but then right next door I have to be 17 to buy a copy of battlefield 3.

In the UK, you have to be 16 to have sex but 18 to watch it. Yup.

You're supposed to close your eyes if you're having sex and you're 16, since you can't watch.

cod isnt gonna pay my college fund after 3 years, or give me a house, or give me health benefits, or teach me self discipline, or pay me.

This is about content. Not rewards. Anyway, I'm sure if you get hooked up correctly, you can do some pro gaming and earn some cash that way, and as far as I'm concerned you learn a lot of self-discipline from high-action computer games. What's disgusting about what you just said is that while they try to get us to not play violent video games they /encourage/ people to join the army.

There seems to be abit of confusion about this for people in the UK. You can join the any armed forces at 16 but you cannot go to war until you are 18. My old politics teacher used to bitch about this, how you could kill people but not vote, she was a retard.

There was a jet skiiing place near me that required you to be 14 to drive a jet ski

You had to have a drivers license though
Your parent's couldn't count or couldn't vouch for you

So essentially you had to wait till 17 anywya

In England the age for consent is 16 yet you have to be 18 to watch porn, go figure

That's because in the UK it's illegal for people to star in porn if they're under 18.

But the pornography law is a bit... Odd, isn't it? Something like, we can watch it, but it is illegal to distribute it to minors or some ****? Basically, being underage and watching porn, you are making others commit a crime.

Because being in the army is a more controlled environment that is designed to teach you self discipline and skill in combat situations whereas a video game kills the senses in the frontal lobe and make you more emotionless towards the loss of human life? maybe?   
   
This coming from a very avid gamer by the way.

It does improve hand-eye coordination and general awareness (possible reaction time) but it does not improve your eye sight (all televisions emit radiation that damages the eyes) and what I stated was it's effect on the brain. Video games generally cause an increase in aggression and a decrease in responsive activity from the brain when considering the loss of human life (that, of course, depends on what games you play but the content is aiming at war games).

More than half of that was completely irrelevant. I just said that we are talking about war games, that is what the post is about and those cause aggression and a diminished sense of morality involving human life. Your arguments for any other games is useless and I already mentioned it in the comment before yours. There was no point at all in typing it.

I countered with the worsened eye sight because you said it "improves your sight" but it does not. Whether a tiny bit or a lot, it makes your eye sight slowly worse.

Uhm. No. Just... No.

The military is a place where you learn that the difference between Justice and Murder is merely government order, and video-games are pretty much not a part of your emotional response to human death in any way or form. If you believe what science tells us, anyway.

Murder is taking a life for a negative purpose (desire for killing, revenge, etc). Justice has always been about the majority or government order. That is how justice came to exist.

Also scientific research shows that the human brain has certain reactions and activities when the concept of another humans death is introduced. The response is significantly stifled after long periods of video games. Death of another person becomes mundane or even glorified (especially with movies). It is the same as brain activity being slowed or stopped when watching television.

You can join the army at 17 with parental consent. You can get an M rated game at age 17. You can get any game with parental consent. 15-21 are the ages of young adulthood. Lawmakers decided you must be a certain age for certain activities, and the difference of a few years is arbitrary.

UK.
Can't be shipped out until active duty until you are 18 though.
Besides which, the training in the British Army is long and thorough that even if you join up at 16 you would be near enough 18 before you became a fully trained soldier anyway.

murica as long as your parents sign saying you can join earlier than 18. You can do boot camp just after you turn 16, and potentially be in combat before you graduate high school.

Most Australian retailers don't pay attention to the ratings on games when you buy them.
Also the age to join the army is 18.

I'm pretty sure you have to finish year 12 so that should rule out anything below 18 and I swear the ads on TV say you need to be over 18. Do you mean like an army chef or engineer because that might be different.

Pretty sure I've not finished year 12 and I'm in the Australian Army.

To do a uni degree with the army you need to obviously finish year 12 (just like any other uni in australia), or if you want to be an Officer you need to finish year 12. Other than that you can do whatever you want as long as your 16 and a half.

Also the he thinks because he goes to a "program" he thinks he's over the police.

In Canada you only need to be able to do 19 pushups, 19 situps, 7 minutes walking up steps, and a fairly simple grip test to get in the army. Its after you're in that you get in amazing shape.

But you're right about what you're saying. Most people can pass the entry physical without training but by the time bmq/bootcamp rolls around it would definitively help to be in shape. And thinking he's above the police means he's on his way to being one of the guys in the army who has a huge superiority complex. I remember when I was applying to the reserves I kept asking people about it tp get information and they were like "no man, don't even attempt it, its nothing like a video game it's really physically demanding, just find a part time job that wont make you hate your life. This life style isn't for everyone..". Sadly, at least where I live the military isn't one to breed humble people these days.

And you have to be 18 to technically join the army. The signing of the paper, and class don't really count.
