Eighteen Orbits

Legally speaking, I'm now 18 years old as of 14 minutes ago. Technically, I've got about another 14 hours to go, but today's my 18th birthday.

Suddenly, some time in the last 15 minutes, I spontaneously gained the responsibility to smoke, have a bank account, have a credit card, enter contracts, and otherwise make my own decisions. I did not have this capability 16 minutes ago, but I do now.

Ain't legal lines amusing?
