What Drug should you NEVER try? is a little web quiz asking a series of questions about the potential effects of drugs and how you feel about them in order to determine which drug(s) you should never go near. The quiz has been making the rounds a bit; I know Christa took it last week, and this morning, I received it from Phil. So, naturally, I took the quiz, and my results were…a bit confusing.
As you can see, according to the graphic at the top, I should totally be avoiding Alcohol. Or, as they put it, “Booze.” But when you look further down, at the breakdown of the results, they note that a higher score indicates that the drug would be worse for me. As such, from the graphic, you might expect that Alcohol would have the highest score. This is not the case—Marijuana does. I’ll be honest, I’m not sure what happened there, but I’d rather partake in Booze than Marijuana. Which seems to be borne out by the actual score breakdown. So I guess I’m wondering whether anyone else got results like this (some big negative numbers, and particularly a graphic that seems wrong).
I will say, though, that the high negative numbers—exceeding the absolute value of everything but Marijuana—for Salvia (and almost for Mushrooms and Cocaine) would seem to indicate that in fact I should go and make use of such substances. Considering how unhappy it makes me to have any notable alterations to my motor and mental functions, I think I’ll stick to some light drinking from time to time, and leave the dissociative and hallucinogenic substances to someone else.
