    Yes, you're right - it makes damn poor cocktail and it's worse than pure alcohol by far (I found the stink the worst factor) So you're ex-sailor, huh? That's interesting. My step dad had been a sea captain until he started drinking too much and had to switch to less demanding occupation. I...

    the pothead thread

    Paranoya Came to conclusion (after some years) that I don't like the stuff. Switched to booze completely. I don't know why but hash and shit makes me paranoid. It was particularly scary when, after popping into that nice cozy caffee (those name I don't remember) I was walking down one of these...

    here I go to mama

    Hi there everybody! I guess I'd have to introduce myself first. I'm ...well... who am I? Shit. You know, there are hundreds of words that might describe you as a person. Normally none of them are true. For instance you may say that you're 40 years old but then how come they keep asking you to...
