Random question:

what date do you guys punch in when you have to verify your age for a video (ala mature game videos, red band trailers, etc)?

i use 01/01/1980 cause its easy and i dont have to do any math to make sure its over 18 :p

i use to put my real one in then i had to do it every videos so i said f that and just put 1987.

^ that's what I did. I pick the year of my birth and call it good. I'm sure a lot of people entering those websites were born on 1/1 of whatever year they were born lol

i often wondered wth the use of this thing is. If you put in a number under 18 does it placklist your IP forever and you can't ever get in or what? or does it just ask you again, haha. seems pointless.
