just because something is legal doesn't make it right
I think he has more trouble with the immorality of lying.
Lie like a rug dude. Put your beliefs a side for a moment and do whats best for everyone involved. EMR's plan sounds solid. Go for it.

thorax: while i appreciate your opinion, it aint right. its about integrity. what kind of a guy am i if i feel i need to lie about my mistakes? besides, man, if i get caught, dang im in trouble, lol
yeah, but i have been driving going on two years now. just my permit though. and its only 6 months til im 18. and it looks like its cheaper to not even go through the insurance believe it or not. it will be about $8500, but, if we went through the insurance, we would be running about $21,000 after the raised rates and everything. insurance just seems like the biggest scam ever after this, lol. i've definantly learned my lesson though. look behind ya
EF: i cant prove to them anything if they dont let me drive. idk how this will all turn out. im guessing im just gonna have to get my liscense myself when im 18. whats six months in the scheme of life anyways. i dont really need a car for my job anyways. 15 cars!? dang man! i only got one
i need to try again
Everyone's entitled to bend the rules sometimes. If you were 16 and had your liscence, it would be about integrity, but this could affect you for a long time. Sometimes, you just gotta bend the truth. If there was a 21-year old in the car with you, you're officially legal. I'm gonna have to go with Thorax here.
And a lot of people might be thinking "No! ZOMGcopter! Lying is terrible!" But this is one of the two situations where lying might actually be helpful conmsidering the effects this could have on you.
The other situation where you should lie is if you happened to somehow be singled-handedly responsible for the downfall of America, and roast beef, in which case you didn't see a thing.
