One would expect that a 19yo has most of common sense well developed... or maybe not.


That part of the brain that says "Hey Dummy! If you stand in the middle of the freeway at night, you might be hit by a car and die" doesn't Start developing until the early 20's, and doesn't finish until 24~25. It's the very last part of the brain the develop, the most stunted by alcohol/drug use and clearly the issue with this story. Anyway, it's called the "Prefrontal Cortex" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prefrontal_cortex and, among other things, it's in charge of cause an effect.... "what happens if I. . ."
