There are crimes even greater than wearing socks with sandals or leaving your tray of rubbish on the McDonalds table. Vaping is front and centre in the following tales of assault and murder. As Shaw Taylor used to say: “Keep ‘em peeled!”
The signs are there, literally, extolling the benefits of taking a break now and then. Going hard at something to get it completed is all well and good, but when tiredness kicks in there’s a mistake soon to be looming. Every driver has seen the signs on the motorways or major holiday routes – park up and kick back for a bit. A vape company claims that they have evidence nonsmokers would like smoke breaks too.
You never know when a crisis will hit. Imagine the typical scene: it’s a sunny day, barely a cloud in the sky, and everybody is happy. It’s just another ordinary day in this land we like to call home. But what’s that? Over there, what’s that?
It’s the time for new beginnings. We all make daft promises about changing our lives in some fashion shortly after eating tons of rubbish at Xmas – but this is the pivotal season, it’s the moment we’re accustomed to moving schools, changing classes and embracing new challenges.
There is something cool about being in the minority and rebelling against the status quo. It’s something associated with being young, headstrong and carefree – the anger of youth raging against the establishment. You don’t have to agree with the underlying principles, but black and red will never go out of fashion. Yes, being a rebel is cool. And that’s vaping.
A sigh punctuated what had become an increasingly uncomfortable silence. This kind of thing was meant to be easy, and the two men sitting on either side of the table were masters at their game – but they were running out of ideas. That scared them if the clicking of biros and beads of sweat were anything to go by.
Advancements in the technology drove simple vaping into spawning offshoots, matched preferred styles to dedicated devices. Hole size and location, coil type and wicks, power variations and its delivery all created vaping niches – none of which is more spectacular than the vaping tricks scene that spawned from simple cloud competitions.
There are many great questions such as ‘what is the meaning of life’, ‘do germs get ill’ and ‘are chickens really little dinosaurs’. All of them pale into insignificance when faced by the greatest question of all: what kind of vaper am I?
Somewhere in central England, at this very moment in time, vapers are gathered together at Vapefest. It’s all about vaping and it’s a festival – us Brits love a festival. We all grow up with the option to attend festivals catering to rock, dance, alternative, world, electronic and who knows what genres of music. We love a festival.
There’s a whole host of reasons why the recent moves to limit bottle size and concentrations were a stupid thing, but we are the biggest one. Look around you, the next time you’re gathered with other vapers. Have a long hard stare. We aren’t stupid.
