Turns out Cysid sends you a special birthday message for your 21st birthday:
Looks like today is the "big day" for you, turning 21 and all. Mmmm ... beer. Legally.
As a small birthday treat, enjoy 15 "Experience Points" on me!
Cysid, the Ultimate Choose-Your-Own-Adventurer "
Lol. I wonder if there's any other milestones he sends special messages for.
I had the same thought. I will now be anxiously waiting.
Assuming I remember to log in for my future birthdays of course :P
I never get this message before during my birthday.
You should get one every year on your birthday along with fifteen experience points
Got my 15 EXP, but no message.
Hmm, that's odd.
At least I got my points though.
I think he sends "How are you even able to read this!?" If you're 1-3 years old, something along the lines of "Wait, you're not even born yet!?" if you type in a date from the future, and maybe something like "Wow, that's old..." if you're born in like 1900.
I think I remember also getting a "Sweet 16" birthday message way back when my birthday was actually my real birthday, but I'm not sure.
At 18, you get:
"Finally, adulthood! Legally at least."
Voting, I guess, with few exceptions.
It means you're a legally an adulthood.
Sex in some states.
Legally able to die for your government
In Alabama you're not even legally an adult for another year. You can go to jail, but can't sign your own bond.
That makes almost as much sense as making the legal age for gambling, alcohol consumption, and firearm possession the same.
Well, what if you don't want beer, per se? What if you have a taste for pomegranate wine or some such?
I guess Cysid was just sharing his personal tastes with someone who he presumed has not tasted recreational alcohol in any form prior to this.
Recreational alcohol? I'm not entirely sure I want to try that.
Either way. Why would he put legally in a second sentence afterwards, had he not assumed that the member in question has consumed ethanol prior to reaching the age of majority.
Well, communion/passover wine is alcohol too, and you're allowed to have it in public legally, sort of/depending, even if you're a minor, though I doubt that's being drunk for recreational purposes in most cases.
He could have been making a sort of false assumption, like "I'd suggest beer, I mean, on the off chance you have a taste for something else, which would imply you've had alcohol before, which is unlikely..." just like that one lemony narrator who makes assumptions about his audience. Like, "This book you are reading, or are having read to you by someone for some odd reason, because this book is most certainly for people above the average age of literacy in the states and if you have to have this read to you, than you probably should close this book before I say something innappropriate or some shit." Does the author honestly believe his readers are children hearing this bedtime-story-style? Probably not, but y'know, the joke is there, and you're also factually covered in the case where your offhanded assumption is actually true.
It's very sad when you're getting drunk for non-recreational purposes
Unless you had a sip with Bill Cosby just to be polite, in which case it's just plain upsetting.
It's cool, it was like two days ago so I'm pretty sure that won't happen.
It can still happen; it's just that your rapist can't get away because he shouted happy birthday first.
Can't wait for 15 points in 1 and a half weeks!
I have seven years, five months, one week, and three days before I get the message about turning 21.
Don't even count down, Chris-James.
8 years, 11 months??? Today is not my birthday
Cysid sent me a special one for my 16th birthday.
