Patrick, please stick with poetic patrick whenever
possible. Save the politician when running for office
or defending Mash. Fuck is not a problem, anger
management issues are ok as long as the guy is cute,
you qualify. As long as you don't hit women, never

Marc I understand your being a great guy and helpful
but I'm a little weirded out. I too cant imagine doing
ibogaine without some music. I like alternative and
some ambient, I don't like total silence. I know youre
trying to do something good but it almost sounds like
punishment or something, you stick people into a dark
room with nothing to hear or smell and dont talk to
them??????? why on earth would you do that? I dont
know if patrick was being sarcastic or not but I love
what flowers and different perfume smells like when
I'm on ibogaine. 

Why do you do that? I dont think one person who has
done ibogaine agrees with it. And if its like doing a
movie then I missed the movie, that's what people like
to write about it but if its going to the movies I
sure missed the movie part of it.

I don't ever attack anyone and I'm not starting now
well no I did get upset about the paying blacks not to
have children messages a long time ago here, but why
on earth do you dose people like that Marc?
