    Interesting. This may indicate that the 82% who buys their drugs from the local drug dealer, also regards this local dealer as a friend.

    Does MixMag have a website where one could read more about the magazine or possibly request suscription information?

    in swim's experience, alcohol kills some of e's effects, swim doesn't see how anyone would want to drink with it
  6. adzket
    swim no's many people who just like to get messy and do e and drink and mix everything together which is very dangers.

    I'm never quite sure of the purpose of surveys like these. I guess everyone compares their own experience to the results.

    When I do that I find that for some question's results I am very typical, for other very atypical. So what?

    SWIM was having the same thoughts on the typical/atypical thing, but I just find it kind of interesting to compare my results.
