Two samples of powder (even of the same chemical) with equivalent volumes won't necessarily weigh the same. For this reason, eyeballing is an inaccurate and potentially dangerous method of measuring, particularly for substances that are active in very small amounts.

I once took an unknown, eyballed dose of 4-ACO-DMT. Completely fucked in the ass by that substance. I was drunk, had 500mg of powder in a bag and thought 'Fuck it, I'll just pour a little bit into this cup of water and drink it.' A 'little bit' to my retarded drunken mind turned out to be a fuckload.
It came on extremely fast and I could not communicate with anyone. Everyone and everything became very elephant-like. After making all the non tripping people present concerned and probably entertained by how hard it hit me, I went to my room, turned off the lights, and got in bed where I was treated to some of the most interesting closed eye visuals I've ever experienced. I saw the Indian god Ganesh and he seemed to be in some sort of universal sorting center. Taking care of shit. Realized much of human interaction was about commere, sharing and trade. My takeaway was that I needed to be a better neighbor, both literally (because I puked in the backyard late at night, it was loud, and I was sure I had disturbed the neighbors who were elderly) and also in a more universal sense. Like... Why not just mow the lawn for once? Sweep the floor. Do my part.
The weirdest part about it, and I'll stop rambling in a sec, is that at the end of the trip when I was coming down, I hear Stairway to Heaven randomly start playing in the distance. It's coming from the living room. Went out to inspect it and there's music coming out of computer speakers connected to a projector and an HTPC. I turn on the projector and there's Robert Plant on the common area wall lookin' all sexy and mysterious. Illuminated under the wickedness of red stage lights. Another roommate (non tripper) was woken up by this and was equally weirded out by it.
We figured another person we were living with must have had a youtube playlist going earlier in the night, abandoned it without thinking because he's like that and it somehow kicked back on at 4am for some reason. Maybe it timed out and reconnected. But yeah, just imagine hearing that eerie guitar intro coming from another room, suddenly, in a quiet house at the tail end of an intense drug trip. It felt meaningful at the time.
