    Society allows him to do such as Whitlam thought that if they were old enough to die involuntarily (in Vietnam war conscription) then they can also die voluntarily via adult games. But this does mean that he matured yet - Whitlam only wanted consistency and justice of being able to vote and decide if we enter a war for the conscript to die in. I was about 30 years old when AIDS became prevalent and I assume I had more maturity/wisdom than a lot of youngsters who got the disease.


    The following article I have hacked due to copyright rules. But you could help by reading the entire article, only a page.

    https://www.npr.org/templates/story/...ryId=141164708
    Brain Maturity Extends Well Beyond Teen Years

    Under most laws, young people are recognized as adults at age 18. But emerging science about brain development suggests that most people don't reach full maturity until the age 25. Guest host Tony Cox discusses the research and its implications with Sandra Aamodt, neuroscientist and co-author of the book Welcome to Your Child's Brain.

    TONY COX, host: I'm Tony Cox and this is TELL ME MORE from NPR News. Michel Martin is away. We'd like to spend this part of the program talking about the passage from childhood to adulthood and how that may be tougher for one distinct group of young people.
    Most of the privileges and responsibilities of adulthood are legally granted by the age of 18. That's when you can vote, enlist in the military, move out on your own, but is that the true age of maturity? A growing body of science says, no. That critical parts of the brain involved in decision-making are not fully developed until years later at age 25 or so.

    COX: Is this idea that the brains of 18 year olds aren't fully developed a matter of settled science?
    AAMODT: Yes. The car rental companies got to it first, but neuroscientists have caught up and brain scans show clearly that the brain is not fully finished developing until about age 25.
    COX: To not be too clinical in the spin that we put on this, what parts of the brain are we talking about and what changes happen between the ages of 18 and, let's say, 25?
    AAMODT: So the changes that happen between 18 and 25 are a continuation of the process that starts around puberty, and 18 year olds are about halfway through that process. Their prefrontal cortex is not yet fully developed. That's the part of the brain that helps you to inhibit impulses and to plan and organize your behavior to reach a goal.


    And the other part of the brain that is different in adolescence is that the brain's reward system becomes highly active right around the time of puberty and then gradually goes back to an adult level, which it reaches around age 25 and that makes adolescents and young adults more interested in entering uncertain situations to seek out and try to find whether there might be a possibility of gaining something from those situations.
    COX: So this is important. Are the physiological changes in the brain, in terms of the development of young people, as significant and impactful as the cultural changes and environmental changes that they go through vis-a-vis peer pressure things of that sort?
    Heard on Tell Me More
    --------------------------------------

    this article mentions beyond 25 years

    So don't go into full moon phase of screaming at every crime of the individual - it is also society's fault.

    Because you give lectures etc I would expect you to know these things already.

    NZ Indigenous have ''heroes'' of their own....I just wonder ....if he tried apologising for his animal=like behaviour rather than demand things? Feel sorry for the doctor who had to tolerate him...

    And what I find most appalling is the title of the article ''Once Were Warriors actor Pete Smith banned from Kaitaia Hospital after dispute over a biscuit''
    This is NOt why he is banned. He is banned for unruly behaviour~

    Source: FB post by a friend of mine (who also happens to be a chess player):

    Here's a little story about Victoria Police

    So we pull up outside Coles Balaclava and are about to do our shopping when a junkie starts abusing us from her car.

    “Stop taking pictures of me you slut. Your girlfriend is a mole” etc etc you get the idea ��

    No one was taking any pictures of her except in her addled mind, anyway we ignored the abuse and went in to do our shopping with a string of expletives following behind us.
    We came out with our shopping bags and were loading the car when we heard her going at it again, abusing an elderly lady walking past and someone who had just parked next to her. She saw us looking and we became the target again:

    “What are you looking at ya C&%$”

    While she was at it, I noticed a police car nearby and went over to report the abuse. They didn’t seem particularly interested, just stopped their car and sat there looking down. I told them that this person should be moved on as my girlfriend is very frightened as was the elderly lady. Also who knows how long she has been here.

    At this point the lovely Constable James Jamieson decided to get out of his car. He stood over me in an intimidating manner and told me that we needed to MOVE ON. Apparently our presence was provoking this woman.

    Wow. We were pretty shocked by this and I told him so - we had asked for help while doing the shopping, why were we being told to move on? We were the ones who were being abused and had asked the police for help.

    “You need to shut up” he said “I told you to move on”

    We had no choice but to get into our car and drive away.
    Thank you for your help Victoria Police ������

    Years ago they were put away. At least you can point out such people to youth and warn them that that is what will become of them if they do drugs. If you would have given her a fag you would have a friend for life.

    Michael there was a very similar case at Harbourtown, cops came had a look and moved themselves on, not a word spoken. The crazy was still out a few hours later after I had been playing chess, and the ladies shopping. Funny I had a Swede and an OZ having a great battle on my board refusing to stop for their wives trying to dragging them away. Then they drew.

    Police should take care! Abusive behaviour is not to be tolerated!

    They only take action if it is an Aborigine being abusive or if anyone is violent. An Aborigine here was even calling a female police officer a %#$@ lesbian and got away with it as the cops laughed except her.

    No, you had finished your shopping. Unless your friends were planning taking up residence in the curb, they have no reason to stay and provoke a person who sounds likely disturbed.

    We had no choice but to get into our car and drive away.

    Good job. You're welcome.
    So what's your excuse? To run like the devil's chasing you.

    See you in another life, brotha.

    The police have more important things to do than arrest everyone who uses abusive language in public.

    I thought the story is about Michael's friend not him

    Was not me as mentioned in introduction to the post. But would it be me, I would do exactly the same thing as George did - report to police. What gives that lady a right to abuse others verbally?

    They are not usually termed a lady if they abuse people. But she wasn't reported as laughing so maybe off topic.

    Yes, I mixed up my pronouns there. Should have been:

    No, your friends had finished their shopping. Unless they were planning taking up residence in the curb, they have no reason to stay and provoke a person who sounds likely disturbed.

    So what's your excuse? To run like the devil's chasing you.
