In the US, bartenders, bouncers, and restaurant servers have books full
of samples of valid IDs from the different states. They have lights that
show the special markings. They go to training. They still get fooled.

I suggest people stop relying on ID. It makes the web of trust pretty
meaningless. "trust" <> "I looked at what they told me was their ID
