For the curious:
There's a strange exception still in the dutch lawbooks where in one
situation you can be treated as a legal adult as young as 15 [1](It's
one of those strange old laws that's still in the books, but probably
hasn't been used for a century).

Oh, but actually,  but that does give me an idea on how to apply the [[KISS
principle]] and make the line shorter:

"Checkusers should be legal adults in the jurisdiction in
which they reside."

read you soon,

[1] For the terminally curious: If you are under 18, you are still
permitted to marry, provided you have parental permission, and provided
you are older than 15. As soon as you are married, you become a legal
adult. I don't think anyone has actually done this in the last 100
years, but it's still technically possible, AFAIK.
