    eeeeeeeeexactly. In some ways its a good thing I guess? I mean if you don't care as much about what could happen you end up pushing the boundaries of what people think is possible. right? you're more likely to do something awesome...

    I'm not sure I want to live to get old. Friend of mine said that he was middle aged last year. At the time he was 17 and I thought that was creepy as fuck. Now ... Not so much.

    Exactly! You prove my point From the little that I've read (I may come back and change this in a month) my understanding is that when faced with a risky decision a teenager will value the good that will come out of it (doing something awesome... winning a bet who knows.) more than the potential losses (breaking something blah blah blah). Their thought process would be something along the lines of "eh I haven't hurt myself yet so who cares." Supposedly when an "adult" is faced with the same situation they would put a higher value on all the things that could mess up and put less value on the possible gains. Does that make sense? I'm not saying it's a bad thing, I just think it's really cool
