This is totally untrue and I resent it, along with a couple other comment=
s
implying that teenagers aren't able to be mature (Though I do have to agr=
ee
that many teenage boys are horribly immature). I am 16, and I have no
problems affording a paper play mud. Don't assume that just because we're
younger we don't have any money. Besides, I=92ve seen several people who =
are
able to leach money of their parents for this kind of stuff.
