Were They Drunk When They Came Up With That?

The fact that companies that sell alcohol require you to enter your birthdate before allowing you to enter their website has got to be one of the stupidest things I've ever seen. Is this really required by law? Why on earth do you have to be of legal drinking age to visit a website about alcohol? I'm pretty sure you can't get intoxicated just by visiting a website. Perhaps they also need to check ID's when you go to a store that sells alcohol...because you can SEE alcohol there too. All this policy really does is act like a nuisance barrier to all visitors.

And, to be frank, I know several underage people who actually know how to circumvent this brilliant security measure.
