    How could people know how much edgers there were in the nineties, and now?
    I know what you're thinking. "Did he fire six shots or only five?" Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I kind of lost track myself. But being as this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself a question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?

    Well just on personal experience does it seem like there are less than now or do you think there is just more news cast on it in the 90's because it was new back then and it was ironic that they're hardcore but dont do drugs kind of thing?

    From my personal experience in this area, I can definitely say that there are a LOT less people left who actually stuck true to sXe... me and one other friend really being the only ones out of quite a few that used to claim edge...

    Well how many news reports are you referring to? I don't think there was that much news but it gained notoriety due to it being initial media focus. But i still fail to see a link between media focus and how many people are involved. I mean i haven't heard much about Australia in the news recently but it doesn't make me think there are less Australians. The news stories don't focus largely on the numbers of people involved.

    I think that tends to be true for each generation, like how many people who claimed in the 80's were still around in the 90's...its pretty safe to say the numbers diminished. I think what you experienced of numbers dwindling will be an experience of everyone who sticks it out, then and now.

    I don't know, there doesn't appear to be anywhere near as many bands now than there used to be even a few years ago. Now there isn't necessarily a direct correlation between bands and kids, but it's usually a bellwether.
