Until the age of 16, when I was encouraged to remove myself from under the roof, I was frequently scolded for placing jars, milk and condiment bottles on the table. It is poor form, apparently. Personally, and this is just my perspective, booting your jobless son out for no other reason than he’s a tiny bit argumentative is a little bit worse. This isn’t to say that I wouldn’t have demanded I left the building had I been my own father.
“There is no such thing as society,” opined Margaret Thatcher once. Some portray this to be a clarion call to selfishness, others point out she was saying that a sense of entitlement cast a shadow. A popular phrase on social media and forums is “the vape community” – banding people from all political, religious and philosophical hues into one agglomerated mass. Does such a thing exist?
For most online UK vapers, Vapefest is a focal point of the year. It’s a time for meeting up with friends and indulging ourselves in our hobby for a day. The growth in popularity of the event has seen it move location to accommodate demand – but 2015 looks like it will be something really special for us.
“What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” Not according to Marge Simpson who’d hate to get a dozen crapweeds for Valentine’s Day, she’d rather have candy. Homer: “Not if they were called scumdrops.”
You learn a lot about yourself when cramped into a house with people you are related to but wouldn’t have made the cut if you’d been given free reign with the invitation list. You learn a bit about your vaping kit as well, giving run outs to those that wouldn’t normally be seen in your hand.
2015 spanned the twelve months we know like friends, 525949 minutes made up the thing we call a year - 3.156e+7 fun-packed seconds. It couldn’t have been more fun – join Stealthvape as we look back on the highlights of a year we’ll thankfully never see again.
I was forced into making some resolutions last year and they failed spectacularly: The motorbike spent the year in bits and I still haven’t secured four other members for my old-man boyband. Dry January lasted for two hours, healthy eating failed by teatime and I’d sworn before the News finished.
I’ve bought and sold many mods and attys this year in a continuing attempt to find my perfect collection. What have I discovered? There’s no such thing as a perfect collection. But, out of the stuff that’s come and gone there are a few clear winners this year.
Some people are worried about tropical wicks; others are concerned about sexually transmitted eliquids. Increasingly, more and more anti-vapers are being struck down by the silent and insidious nature of an ailment termed ‘Glantz’.
Once upon a time in a forum far, far away new vapers were greeted with a cheery ‘hello’ from the rest of the forum regulars. It struck me that the volume of new vapers is the main reason I stopped visiting those threads – but then I realised how brilliant that is.
