Default Mixing corn sugar and DME

I was thinking of trying to mix 50% corn sugar and 50% dried malt extract when I bottled this current batch this Saturday. Has anyone tried this? I have bottled with all types of sugars and DME, but have never mixed the two. What do you think?

Why? Just for the heck of it? Or because you're striving for a certain effect?

Added flavor of the DME and maybe faster carbonation of the corn sugar?

4oz of DME in 5g of beer won't be noticeable. I'd just use table sugar - easier & MUCH cheaper.

I guess I was just trying to be more difficult or different.

Haha, we've all been there. Not saying not to do it, just that, in my experience and the experience of many on this forum, that won't have a noticeable impact - it won't be "different". In other words, focus your time & attention on other aspects of the process.
