    The place for old and not so old to chat and discuss things in the world in a civilized manner.
    all welcome Just try to be decent to each other. Be adults but a bit silly maybe too?
    We tend to gather later at night.
    heck we might even discuss some vaping stuff.
    As long as it meets forum rules no subject is forbidden, just be adult and discuss, do not name call and such please.

    I will personally try to avoid any partisan politics, just seems to make things run better.
    ...........................................................................................................................................
    EDIT:

    For clarification of behavior not desired in this thread the following is being added.
    I would hope that as adults we can all abide by these recommendations.
    I will personally have to 'bite my tongue sometimes' but that is the adult and considerate thing to do. I have also been guilty of violating these recommendations and will work to not do so again.
    Please keep me in line if I drift... What are friends for if not to help one another stay on a desired path. Should you wish to discuss Politics, Religion or other similar inflammatory topics there are threads for that on VU. You may see me in a political thread from time to time.

    RELIGION:

    "I have to go now and take my wife to church. I probably won't be back until later tonight." This is OK because it is not about religion, but about your daily activities. No one will be upset by it.

    "I am a devout Catholic and I can prove to you that Baptists are morons for misinterpreting what the Bible says." This is a NO-NO because it likely will piss off anyone who is a Baptist. It does not matter whether the poster believes he has proof; the statement is inflammatory and will probably start an argument.

    "The original version of John 1:1 says, 'In the beginning was the word and the word was with god and the word was a god.' The use of the article 'a' in that sentence means that there was more than one god. No article or the article 'the' implies there is only one god." This is also a NO-NO because it demands an argument and our thread is not about debating religious beliefs or interpretations. And Christianity is not the only religion on this planet, so to say "the word of god" in reference to a specific book is also likely to start an argument.

    POLITICS:

    "The FDA has put through some very unreasonable regulations regarding vaping and we need to come down hard on those assholes." This is OK because no individual or political party has been named as the villains - just some entity we call FDA (Food and Drug Administration). They are not run specifically by democrats or republicans, although they might still be members of this swamp/shadow government/evil empire <pick a nasty description>. Even though this statement is, in theory, a political statement, it is not one that is likely to cause an argument amongst those who post in this thread.

    "Doctors kill more people each year than all gun crime in this country and this can be statistically proven." There currently is a great push by some politicians to make the gun issue a hard political subject, but it really should not be considered as such unless you are pointing out that one specific party is trying to take away your guns, in which case it is not really the gun you are talking about, but a political party whose actions you do not like.

    "Hillary Clinton is a criminal and should be in prison" or "Trump sucks" or "Bernie Sanders was the best possible choice and there was a conspiracy to put him under the bus." Any time you name a specific politician and ascribe good or bad motives, intentions, actions, whether true or not, you are dangling bait in front of other readers and will start an argument. All these types of statements are NO-NOs, whether in posted text or as part of your signature. You might hate a specific individual or a specific party, and that is fine for you to have that opinion, but do not post that in this thread. Avoid any comments that are likely to start arguments or foster resentment.

    Also, please do not use words like "libtard," even if not talking about a specific individual. This term implies that all liberals are retards, and even if you believe that, it will be taken as degrading by someone reading this thread. Use of words like "snowflake," which is a generalism for someone who cannot handle the things life throws at him/her, is not considered a political comment. If you put both those words together (e.g., "He's a damn libtard snowflake") then you have crossed the line into the political. When in doubt, please find another word or phrase.

    Welcome Zoe.
    This is actually a retreat from another board.
    We kinda got in trouble over there for implying that our govt had corruption in it without mentioning any names or politics.
    Hopefully a few from over there will show up later, but anyone willing to chat in a civilized manner is welcome here.
    hopefully we can keep it decent and sometimes just agree to disagree.

    this is NOT a political thread however.
    We tend to avoid the nitty gritty of that and religion and such sensitive subjects.
    At least that is the goal.

    Always welcome Meg.
    Just do not be too thin skinned and be decent to others and we can have some fun.

    We were having some food fights at the other place.
    A mix of silly and serious.
    'Mostly have fun and good companionship.

    We might talk about a broken truck some then mixing juice, pets, weather, etc.

    I'm middle aged so I think I meet the criteria. Also have no interest in deep discussions on politics and religion unless it lite friendly banter. I usually avoid those topics like the plague.:D

    Shit, wish I would have known mooch was doing a live stream. That dude has so much knowledge on the subject I struggle to remember everything he says in his videos.

    Ha ha, good to know I'm not alone. I can't row this thing myself you know! :giggle:

    I usually have to watch a second or even a third time but I don't mind because I am fascinated with vaping and take the safely aspect of it seriously.

    My fecebook account is very structured since I am almost anti social on FB. I have some medical groups and a few mixing groups I belong. I use messenger for work related stuff, family and real friends I actually know.

    Well I tried the butter pecan ice cream flavor experiments tonight. Not too bad. I think they could use a little more aging. Maybe just a tiny bit of menthol in one to see if it adds an ice cream coolness to it.

    did not care for either though and piffed them out.

    I'm an old fart for sure, so here I am. I only use my FB and twitter accts to give more exposure to pro-vaping articles and activists, or occasionally to bash some business who richly deserves it.

    Don't hate me because I'm a tootle puffer.

    Yeah I was concerned about the mint in the menthol coming through so I was thinking one or two drops at the most. I only make 10ml bottles for my test flavors so I don’t really loose anything if it’s crap and I dump it. I have stop and get me some more sticky labels tomorrow though. I was going to do some mixing tonight but didn’t realize I had no more labels to mark my bottles with. Memory is the first thing to go when you get to be an old phart. Or is it hearing? I can’t remember.

    Welcome Andria.
    tootle puffing is fine as long as we are not hated for not tootle puffing.
    I hope this can be a very civil thread among the participants.

    Tootle puffers of the world unite! Then maybe you could all blow a decent sized cloud . I’m just kidding. I still keep a few of mine in the regular rotation.

    I think so, but damn it's slow. I'm still running a little bit of a temp sometimes in the evening, so I'm just hoping that zithromax keeps working as it says it does, even after you finish taking them. Really totally fucking tired of being sick.

    Most all of us who have been vaping over 2 years pretty much started out Tootle Puffing.
    I do not believe I could have started with massive air and clouds like many today do.

    but whatever works for ya.

    I think we did. My very first setup was an aspire clearomiser with a whopping 650mah ego battery. Been through my crazy build cloud chasing days and have settled into what I like now. Either 24 or 26 gauge round wire simple builds. I use my tootle puffer around the house so I don’t blow clouds around everyone else. Of course my other builds don’t make that large of a cloud either.

    I think Crom brought the biscuits, but I do have a little bit of apricot jam left - it helps them stick to the walls, ceilings, etc.

    Absolutely. I will always be young at heart. In fact, my lady adores my middle aged childish ways. I'm always doing and saying silly stuff to make her laugh.

    A sad story.
    My workshop burned totally up last week. My lifes collection of tools all gone.
    VERY hot fire had a truck with a tank of gas, lawnmowers full of gas a tractor and 2 oxy and 1 acy tank full in there...

    Is a man still a man without his tools?

    Just ordered new soldering station and such from Amazon.
    Going on a HF run in the next couple of days.
    And prolly some Kobalt tools from Lowes.
    My woodworking tools, Air compressor and welders and such will have to wait till I have a new place to put them.
