A little bit of politics

“A little bit of politics!” was, for anyone old enough to remember, Ben Elton’s catchphrase on Friday Night Live. For a large number of people now a little bit of politics is a little bit too much – and so this will attempt to be as apolitical as it is possible to be.

As vapers (or however else you elect to term yourself) I’m sure that very few of us are unaware that legislation of some form or other is heading our way. The lengths to which it will impact upon us may vary due to how you vape, what you vape with, where and when. All that we can hope for is that the decisions made are based on sound science, fair and reasonable.

Sub-ohm Vaping

The fashion for sub-ohm vaping continues to flourish within the vaping community and so for those of you starting out here is a beginner’s guide. Those who chase big clouds at low ohms need to know to do so safely and is only recommended for experienced vapers who are not new to coiling drippers.

Firstly, sub-ohm vaping can be dangerous.

You need to be able to use Ohm’s Law, accurately measure the resistance of your coils, appreciate how coils work when placed in parallel and know what maximum constant current your battery can cope with. Also the juice you use ought to be tailored for very low resistances.

“One’s too many, ten’s not enough!”

It’s a line from a Pop Will Eat Itself song that a mate of mine had as the signature to his emails for years. Given PWEI’s predilection for appropriating popular culture (as well as samples from other songs) into their songs it has always bothered me. I needed to know what it meant, I think I do now.

By Dave Cross

I don’t know about you but I’ve joined and then left many groups on Facebook, some within minutes of being accepted. One of the things I wonder about when clicking on the join button is whether the effort being placed into that motion is even worth the bother because it usually isn’t.

Once allowed into a sanctum restricted to those deemed worthy (which appears to be every person desiring to join) my first question is ‘why wasn’t this an open forum in the first place?’ I see a familiar array of icons depicting omnipresent Facebook profiles, some achieving to be in more places at the same time than even a God could lay claim to.
