    alright goddamnit, heres a question for all you people who live in remotely big cities...have they changed the fed-ex priority stickers where you live!?!? Cuz where i am, a big city ;) , they have changed the priority stickers to these small ass pure blue pieces of shit and that pisses me off. I think it is some type of precaution of anti-graffiti because around my way, if you dont rack shit, you dont get shit...this is because you have to be 25 to buy art supplies...another form of anti-graffiti. Goddamned cities....well, any input is appreciated...thanks...peace.

    youve got to be 25 to buy art supplies? um, not only is that unconstitutional, but its illegal, and thus i have a hard time beliving it to be true. what city do you live in? cause i know that new york, chicago, san fran and la dont have any such laws, and if anyone would, it would be them....

    Yo, the dude is telling the truth. I lived in that same city not long ago for about a year and in the art stores all the markers (pilots, magnums, etc.) are behind counters and you have to be 25, yes 25 to buy any of them. Same goes for spray paint, which is also all in cages. Even at home depot you have to be 25, although its pretty easy to just rack the shit. And all the etch cream has been moved into the back. That stuff you have to enquire about, i dont even know where theyre hiding that shit now.

    twenty fives a bit old man you could be married and have kids and not be able to get a marker??? i dont think so. maybe its 18 and thats only spray paint and markers not all art supplies. im sure you can find a way around it. to need to be 25 to buy a marker is just fuckt. i think you might be over (shit i cant remember how to spell that word) exagerating

    Are you sure? Out here in Los Angeles you have to be 18, because at 18 you are an adult. Perhaps they have a sticker or sign that say's "If you APPEAR to be under 25, we will card you" I know they got that thing for tabacco. I mailed out some packages USPS Priority Mail this week and used those stickers. I don't see the logic in that 25 and older thing. I mean instead of buying a broad tipped marker you'll just go get a bottle of Johnny Red and get drunk and go do some stupid shit but you can't buy the marker.

    I remember that in the window of the Pearl art and craft on south street there was a sign that said minors couldnt ENTER the store with out an adult..or maybe it was 21..something like that.
    It's not like I gave a shit..i was a freakin employe of Pearl in Maryland....

    Yeah, i wasnt sure if i should say anything, but i guess the spot's been blown. In Philly, especially all the art stores on and around south street you must be 25 to purchase the larger pilots, magnums and the like, as well as any type of spray paint. But where there's a will there's a way.
