i'm from germany and its not true anymore that u can drink wine or beer with adults at 14...they changed the law (at least in germany they did)
also, there are different laws in every country in europe, u cant just generalize "europe".
however, that part with "they never ID anyways" is SO TRUE!
great aspect of living in germany! haha
btw. worst shit i ever did: i was at this huge b-day party of those twin-friends of mine (a boy and a girl). they were super popular, involved in sports and so on, so obviously there were a shit load of people there (like 100,120 people). Everybody got so wasted, puked all over their piece of land they have, couple of people had sex on the lawn there, it was just the biggest mess ever.
best part about it: 2 friends of mine and i had to drive back to where i live by train for an hour the next day (smelled like alc, smoke, clothes all muddy and shit): people looked at us like we were bums. it was great ;)
