Why you can’t vote until you are 18


(Question:) Why is (the age threshold) 18 for voting and drinking, 17 for driving and 16 to get married?

(Answer:) Because at 16 you can use a condom. It takes another year to figure out a gearstick. And 12 months more to work out the difference between Ed Balls and Nick Clegg.
