Much has been made of the decline of the standalone satnav in the media this week. With it leaving the basket used to calculate the consumer prices index, and replaced by ecigs, I’m left wondering why?
As a physicist I’ve held a long-term fascination with the aural and visual splendour of the subject. As an artist I hunt out aesthetic pleasure in everything and vaping is no exception. What is the point in art? To me it serves to illustrate life, provide answers to questions and give a sense that we are all part of something so much bigger than ourselves. The intrinsic beauty of art can both challenge and reward. Vaping is art.
A simple question is posed here: to what extent does harm reduction work; will people not simply displace a set of behaviours with something else of equal abhorrence to Public Health officials?
Harm reduction advocates argue that vaping is an essential tool in reducing harm for those who wish to use nicotine. Those lying behind the opposition to ecigs would prefer a blunter tool that, given the opportunity, would be an outright ban.
I’m getting excited. Not like a small child at Christmas or a married man with children and on a birthday promise, no, but excited none the less. By the time this goes live on the site I’ll be on the M1 heading to the Ye Olde Salutation in Nottingham.
I’m torn. Like a xenophobe who adores our national dish of curry and imported lager, I have conflicting feelings. Part of me would like to proselytise the benefits of vaping and encourage everyone to vape in the style that suits them best – but that doesn’t sit well with my feelings over the growing number of subohm atomisers flooding the market.
Titanium wire has been experiencing a recent surge in interest from vapers new to them. We felt it was prudent to compile some information from the public domain and our personal experience of the product. This isn’t to tell anybody what to think or do – but to allow you to draw your own conclusions.
Some people like to get hot and bothered about politics while others find religious matters cause moist collars and clenched knuckles. There are folks getting vexed over batteries, diketones and cloud chasers but none of them seem to considering the most important issues.
Eighty five percent of the universe is missing. It’s unknown and invisible – it’s dark matter. It’s there though, it has to be; the brilliantly named Fritz Zwicky said so. Not to be confused with the comedy of Doug Stanhope as that’s clearly visible.
Thanks to blustery Internet causing dark clouds in the house, I was moved to consider the week in terms of a vaping weather forecast. What brought a ray of sunshine or outbreaks of the chills in your vapeweek?
I’m not a political animal, I don’t have the patience to craft an argument and debate with those I see as morally or intellectually bankrupt. This isn’t because I don’t believe in the process – it’s that the people holding strident views I’d love to see changed are highly unreceptive to counter-arguments.
