A sad by-product of the boom in vaping is that it has attracted a bad element. Yes, it’s only a handful of wrong’uns, but they cause distress and upset to decent people. Stealthvape would like to ask for your help in tracking down one thief in particular, who took a personal iPhone that belonged to a popular member of the Van Dykes Vapes team.
Humble apologies for the headline to this blog post. We fully appreciate that in order to make a play on Easter we needed to have been doing this since the day after Bonfire Night, tying in with the five months of Cadbury’s Cream Egg adverts. Regardless, where do you vape yours – and, probably more importantly, where do you think you’ll be vaping yours in the future?
We said it first, just remember that. We called for a concerted effort on the part of British vapers to make vaping the sexiest activity this side of getting drunk and stealing flowers from a roundabout on the way home. It’s now very, very possible all thanks to the new direction taken by a leading car manufacturer.
We know what it’s like when you attempt to talk to people who don’t vape, so many of them just don’t get it. And you know what it’s like when you meet someone who does vape. It’s a summit of minds, an encounter of interests, a gathering of passions. Don’t you wish it could be like this everyday?
Not many of you will have noticed, but apparently there has been some weather happening recently. It is the kind of weather we only see on an annual basis, at this time of year, which will explain why so many thought it was a normal blustery winter day. Idiots. Not the media though, they managed to find every single thing that Storm Doris could impact upon.
Vaping is better than smoking, everybody says so. Well, all the people who aren’t shovelling stacks of pharmaceutical dollars into their bank accounts or licking cold lampposts. Public Health England (PHE) believes it so. Then the Royal College of Physicians (RCP) called it. Ninety-five percent safer, top docs said, at least ninety-five bloomin’ percent. Then The Cochrane Review rubber-stamped the PHE and the RCP reports.
What is the most annoying thing in the world? Oh, OK, yes, sure, Celebrity Big Brother is the most annoying thing in the world (if you happen to watch it). That’s not quite where we were going with this. Ignoring #CBB, Katie Hopkins, anybody talking about politics or pizzas arriving cold – what else is the most annoying thing in the world?
It’s easy at Christmas time, because if a present turns up that you don’t fancy it’s a simple trip into town on Boxing Day. One believable story later and a refund or exchange is complete. Mind you, it doesn’t work so well for in-laws. Fancy a life in leather trousers? Once ordered online, you get the chance to try to channel the spirit of Jim Morrison before exchanging them for some Chinos.
Hands up everybody who enjoys paying tax so much that they’d like to pay even more tax in the future? Hmm, it doesn’t seem as though there are many who would qualify as tax lovers. The EU Commission is currently asking for European citizens (of which we still are) for their ideas regarding placing an extra tax on vape equipment and liquids. If you haven’t already let them know what you think then you’ll need to hurry to beat the deadline.
The evidence, according to anti-vape campaigners, just keeps piling up. They are correct, in a way, but just not how they believe. We are constantly being warned that vaping is a gateway to smoking – and that non-smokers need to be protected. Our anecdotal evidence says differently, we know it helped us quit smoking and we also know how awful cigarettes taste after having vaped for a few months. In case you get drawn into an argument, here’s what research has said about it recently.
