And so it goes... More and more idiots - the backlash is on everyone that isn't an idiot..
Too complicated to remove the cells? <shrug> Culling.
A steampunk mod, lol
What part of "No Batteries in Checked Luggage" did this clown not understand?
I dunno how yer posta' carry yer batteries, but INSIDE THE MOD is just wrong.
In either your Mod or cases in your carry on.
In the mod is just stupid; battery-cases are cheap, so.. <shrug> Dumbass.
A Mod is fine
But with no atomizers on it, right?
Yep, I will have those in a zip lock baggie in order to get through security
I don't trust the electronics enough to want to leave batts in the mod, in a suitcase, in an airport, on a plane, on a train, or thru spain.
And, yeah: I can almost be sure that the atty will pee all over too, so empty and baggied.
(remember to leave the batteries loose in the clothes with spare change and keys, too ;-)
I saw this on the news the other day and was thinking that not only is the person an idiot for leaving batteries in a mod in luggage but they are even more of an idiot because the battery and mod are perfectly legal if you take them in your carry on bag.
I don't think people are going to start getting it until the airport (or government) starts charging them for the police / bomb squad response.
If you vape it is totally on you to know the rules when flying.
The same applies for carrying anything else with a lithium ion cell on an airplane.
I take the batteries out of my extra mod even when I put it in my book bag.
it's very easy to bump the button five times and have a mod start firing when it's in a bag or luggage.
It isn't the batteries in the MOD, it is how many times your luggage gets bounced around to hit the fire button five times and turn it back on with batteries in it. Had it happen in my cup holder while driving.
It's the "it won't happen to ME" mentality; the same exact mindset that leads to dying in a housefire from smoking in bed, wrecking the car from spinning out on ice, getting an STD (even the really awful lethal kind) and teen pregnancy from not using a condom. People have this weird belief that bad shit won't happen to THEM, because they're SPECIAL.
So no, I don't think even fines will do much good; people are going to be stupid, no matter how much it costs them -- even if it costs them their life. You just can't fix stupid.
Yes, you can: you let them fucking die. Darwinism.
I agree completely, but the "progressives" (libtards) have been busily trying to protect everyone from themselves for more than a century now; doubt they're gonna stop anytime soon. Pretty sure Darwin is spinning like a top.
A century? Sorry but Progressives and libtards didn't exist 100 years ago.
The reason they do that is because it's a PROVEN path to votes and funding for all the goddamned idiots. It's never shit any nitwit could look at or question and CHOSE, it's strictly nanny-stating and "save the fucking children" bullshit.
I never asked for it or condoned it: these are the people that let me suffer a necrotic hip for almost 2 decades. Fuck 'em. THe same assholes defined how I'd get a replacement - fine, bitches, I can play.. Of course, now I got it they may or may not replace it when necessary.
Caring about people doesn't mean nannying them. Plantation Mentality, I can live without - 'course, I be whitey, so I am already wrong - worse, I am male.
You're wrong. The original Progressives did actually useful things, like clean up the slaughterhouses, and agitate for mandatory vaccination, and window screens anywhere that mosquitos are a problem, and even start venerable organizations like Planned Parenthood. It's just in recent years that they've gone completely batshit and reached way too far into people's personal choices, like smoking, drinking, etc.
Actually... I have to modify that: the killjoys in the Temperance movement were Progressives; they got Prohibition passed... and then we all got to see what a miserable failure it was. They should have learned something from that, but they're much too stupid to learn anything.
No you are living in your own dream world there was no such thing as Progressives or Libtards 100 Years ago.
Sure they did too exist, but were agitating for outrageous reforms like a five day work week, banning children from working in mines and other liberal ideas
Progressive thinking started in the 1800's but today's mentality only started in the last decade or so
Don't confuse or group the two mentalities
I'm only WRONG when I am bleeding, getting stitches or in an emergency-room/clinic.
The left is the party of pro-slavery and KKK, Nazism aka fascism . Look it up. You can sadly make a point that the Corporate/lobby dollars are penetrating the left as well as the long experience on theRight, and the religious loons are in the right - which is no worse than the loons of Green/animal/plant/climate shit on the left.
Helmet and belt laws don't impress me. People are Soylent.
Andria is correct:
But in some respects, Steve is too. The current, completely out of control, illiberal SJW types that call themselves "progressives" have a different mentality.
That's the thing -- the stuff the original Progressives did was all very laudable and useful, other than that Temperance crap (I may not drink, personally, but that's a PERSONAL choice, not foisted on me by a bunch of idiot nannies. And if anyone other than MYSELF had suggested I take up vaping in order to be able to quit smoking, I'd have told them to go directly to hell and butt the hell out of my beeswax! Again, PERSONAL CHOICE!)... but the modern Progressives just aren't happy unless they've got their noses right up everyone's collective ass, trying to save them from themselves -- which is impossible, wasteful (of public money and effort) and goddamned insulting.
There's nothing at all "liberal" about these asshats; they're pretty much the very definition of fascist totalitarian puritans. They want everyone to eat nothing but kale and spring water, walk or bicycle to work (even 30 mile commutes!), stop vaccinating their chldren so we can enjoy rampant epidemics again like the good ol days, let the gov't raise our children, and for god's sake, HAVE NO FUN AT ALL! It might offend someone!
I just went and read that article, and I have to say, some of what those Progressives did is desperately needed TODAY: especially investigative journalism, exposing corruption at every level of gov't and business, and insisting on SCIENTIFIC methods, rather than "it offends me."
Unfortunately, the only part of the original Progressive movement that has endured to our time is the "maternalism" -- a/k/a nannyism, with them thinking that not only do they know best what's right for every individual, but have the right to enforce it.
We need those investigative journalists to expose the corruption to which the nannies have succumbed, so we can expose them for the corrupt fascists they are, and roust them out. Bring back the reliance on SCIENTIFIC METHODS, and dispense with all this ideology-driven rule- and law-making!
"and even start venerable organizations like Planned Parenthood."...really the bitch Margret Sanger,, that started Planned Parenthood was eugincs nut case who thought blacks and poor whites were human "weeds" as she called them, and needed to be culled...sounds pretty batshit crazy to me.
the first Progressive President Woodrow Wilson threw the United States into WWI an unneccesary and bloody war. Wilson also racial segerated the military and it wasn't until a republican Eishnhower got into office that nonsense was offically stopped.
She might have had some ugly ideas... but her insistence that every woman had the right to decide when and IF she wanted to procreate was right on the money -- you can't throw out the greatness of legal and simple birth control just because one of its earliest proponents had some other ideas that were less ethical and rational.
The simplest way for a 3rd world country to pull itself up by its bootstraps and join the 1st world is LEGAL, INEXPENSIVE BIRTH CONTROL... which usually means weaning itself off the Catholic church. You can't be anything BUT a 3rd world country if half the population is imprisoned by its own fecundity.
How Dare they!
I am reminded of Dickens....
Ahh but so are those who call themselves conservatives today.
As a whole not each one.
Oh really...... then explain to me how France, Spain,Italy, Ireland,Poland all escaped being third world countries and were all Catholic......
" but her insistence that every woman had the right to decide when and IF she wanted to procreate was right on the money --"
that's just the point...she did not believe that..she believed that right only extended to rich White women...poor Black and White women she felt did not deserve to have that choice, but should have been forced not to procreate.much like rich White progressives today believe themselves above the common people, that they posses some intellectual or spiritual gifts that allows them to dismiss the right of the people to govern their own lives.Much like the schisim that has always existed in Femminisim (another cult in the Church of Progressives) where the goals and voices of femmenisim has always been controled and directed for the benifiet of rich proffesional women, and poor and blue collar women were ignored, and were never given any leadership,voice or resources among the femminist movement.
the Progressives did not make the 5 day work week possible...the Unions did, the workers did that....neither Karl Marx nor his progeny the "progressives" have ever had any real knowledge or respect for the working class but just saw them as means by which to gain their own political ends...Karl Marx hated the common working men who built the labor movement, He used to have vicious screaming fits at them, and demanded they not have any political voice,because they did not share Marx's dipshit utopian vison, or his political goal,,,,and the men who built the labor movement in England did not Trust Marx, because he was a useless parasite who had never raised a blister, or worked an honest day in his life, but sucked off his own wealthy faimly and the wealthy family of his wife.Marx had zero knowldege or experince of the lives and condidtions of the vast majority of the working class....just as Nancy Pelosi or Hilary Clinton two Progressives, have zero knowledge of the lives of the working class and less interest and yet call themselves the Champions of the working class.
What the hell does any of this have to do with Vape Gear in luggage?
How did this go from some dumbass to political bullsshit???
Because they are so similar?
Because dumbasses are in charge of and running roughshod over the gov't?
Which has what to do with dumbass packing luggage?
2 different groups of dumbasses. Now there’s 3 involved in the entire story.
