In English English, does 'So' at the start of a sentence mean 'And, as a result...'?

It should but now due to influx of American English it can be used at the start of any sentence whether it is the result of anything or a new random event!

It means you're a young person, as this is how they all start a sentence these days.

Yes. The idea that you cannot use 'so' at the beginning of a sentence in English is absurd. This from Charles Dickens:
So I told him that I thought I must have been crying because of my godmother's death and because of Mrs. Rachael's not being sorry to part with me. "Confound Mrs. Rachael!" said the gentleman. "Let her fly away in a high wind on a broomstick!"

You cannot start a new paragraph with the word 'and' so 'As a result' suffices.

-- "Billybean" is correct. In British English the word "so" is not used at the start of a sentence, only after a comma during a sentence.
-- In American English, they have their own incorrect grammar, therefore they often use "so" at the beginning of a sentence.

English English sentences do not begin with the word "So".
