    [–] Brexit will ruin the lives of British citizens in Europe. We deserve a vote _Ryanite_ 2 points ago in ukpolitics

    There was sort-of-precedent if you squint a bit with the Scottish referendum, which allowed 16/17 year olds the vote, and there was an interest in it being applied here. (Outcome drastically affects the future generation and all that)

    Cameron considered it, the right wing Tories didn't like the idea and stopped it- I'd say that's definitely to do with the right wing.

    [–] Brexit will ruin the lives of British citizens in Europe. We deserve a vote _Ryanite_ 6 points ago in ukpolitics

    So your impression is that the voting franchise was restricted to help ensure a remain result? Because that's just not true considering:

    • 16/17 year olds were prevented from voting (A remain demographic) because that decision would cause problems with Cameron's right wing)

    • EU taxpayers in the UK were excluded (A remain demographic again)

    • No supermajority required for some reason

    Cameron basically allowed the Leave camp to arrange the franchise in the way that suited them because he never thought leave would win.

    The government was absolutely not rigging the electorate to promote remain. The electorate chosen was remain biased.

    [–] Redditors, where does the CO2 come from for fizzy drinks? Is CO2 vegan? _Ryanite_ 1 points ago in AskReddit

    Of course it's vegan- CO2 is a simple molecule found in all sorts of chemical processes- not just as a byproduct of respiration. It can be removed from natural gas or as a byproduct of burning fossil fuels, fermentation of carbohydrate (Pepsi does this if I recall correctly)- the list goes on.

    Nobody would ever use animals to produce CO2- it'd be expensive and have a much lower yield than existing methods.
