    Pacman would have thought that obvious. It's a glass like surface which the cocaine will not stick to. Suppose for the ego driven to see themselves in the mirror snorting might give them some self satisfaction :laugh:

    Pacman would be right, he may also think mirrors are always around, and in many cases can be moved easily, provide a ledge-like barrier, and as well as not sticking, the hard surface is good for chopping and easy to clean.

    Swim never tried coke and intends never to, but he thinks a mirror or a highly polished metallic surface may be better than a surface that is just glassy but doesnt reflect because its possible to see even the smallest grains of any dust on a mirror, and so no coke is lost.

    Mirrors are best, as they are nonporous. Meaning not only will it not stick too horribly, the drug will not get caught in cracks and go into the surface. CD cases are used a lot, but if one is using a razor to chop, it's going to get imbedded into the cut parts. Plastic is porous, so is mirror, but not as easily sliced by razors.
    Marble, granite or any sort of hard stone will also work. SWIM guesses mirrors became so widely used also due to portability. Women's compacts and things like that.

    After doing a line or two, Slappy uses the mirror to take a quick peek up his nostrils, to make sure no clumps of powder are visible. This would be a dead-give away that he's been doing something considered naughty for most cats.

    mirrors are good but a badger found something better in a local supermarket,
    the badger would agree that the smooth surface is good for cutting lines etc and allows you to see small particles, but recently the badger purchased a large, smooth, black, glass chopping board! perfect! he can see every single last particle and it is sizeable enough to arrange large amounts of the ching.

    Joe brought up the other point SWIM forgot, mirrors are reflective, can check yourself before facing the world. Good ole mirrors. SWIM just smokes these days, never had the nose for it.

    It's easy to see your stuff on. Some surfaces make it very difficult for SWIMmers to see where all the granules are.

    Contrary to the above method of using a mirror to check that my nose is clean, I sometimes purposely leave a "just noticeable" amount on the bottom of my nostril when in a club. It does wonders for attracting certain types of woman. ;-)

    SWIM thinks mirror is a very bad surface because of the reflection. He see the stuff twice and it's more difficult to make a nice line.

    The best surface for SWIM is his iPhone or iPod Touch. It actually is a black glass - SWIM honestly believes there is no better tool on earth. You carry it all the time with you, it can be a phone, it has fantastic apps and... when SWIY need it, it serves as a wonderful flat black shiny surface :)

    It's a damnsight more expensive than most other shiny black surfaces, though! SWIM will use his cardholder if the toilet roll holder is slanted or there's no lid to the toilet.

    Very good point there, sir.

    Groucho Marx said "I'd never join any club that would have me as a member".

    Although SWIM hasn't been single for some time, he'd never be interested in a woman who was attracted to white residue on his own nose.

    :)

    Not sure - could be from Duck Soup, which is tied with Night at the Opera for SWIM's personal favorite Marx bros film.

    Just to bring this back on-topic, SWIM has heard that cocaine was readily available and known to a small community of enthusiastic users when the Marx brothers where making movies in the 1930's. It wouldn't be surprising if they were familiar with cocaine.

    Re: Why mirrors?

    Swim likes mirrors for two simple, narcissistic reasons: she feels cool snorting off such a typical surface that's always in the movies, and she gets excited watching her herself do lines. I'm so sorry, teachers and government officials- swim DOES feel cool when she does coke. Coke DOES feel glamorous and classy sometimes. It can be dirty but when done the right way, it can be classy as shit ;)

    It's a hard surface, perfect in fact for coke. it's the best thing to see your stuff on. you can see if it's cut a lot easier... at least if it's cut with obvious shit. and, i reckon you can watch yourself blow lines.... thats about it.
