Most of the kids in this school act like they are hardcore and that they also have a purpose for being sneaky and all suspecious. Atleast if all this fails, you can get roofies from a certain person thats in the class of 08', you will know who this is because his brother is study at URI to be a pharmacist, so he can create the roofies.

But if you find your self a nice little white girl who lives in Teft hill and believes that she is black, she will perform fellatio on you as long as you keep her high most of the time.
