    So you don't know anyone that approves of him appointing new people to the run the FDA, who have given vaping a reprieve by pushing back the deadline for PMTAs from this August until 2022, and who have decided not to enforce the "no new products after 8/8/2016" part of regulations that are already in effect?

    I suppose everyone in your circle of acquaintances would prefer to have vape shops and domestic on-line sellers raided by FDA agents demanding proof that every item in their inventory is identical to one that was offered for sale prior to 8/8/2016? To have shipments from overseas vendors confiscated at the border if each such shipment doesn't include proof that the items in it are 8/8/2016 grandfathered? And to have every product that doesn't have a PMTA application filed off the market less than one month from now?

    Really?

    Yes, really.

    In real-life, aka 'not the internet', I dont have any friends that vape. The other nicotine addicts that are in my social circle are all still smoking (aka combustion) and consider me the a-hole for not smoking any more. I am 'the retard' with a 'bomb in my pocket'.

    I got tired of justifying my choices in life like 20 yrs ago, and dont have to explain myself to them if they are hostile to me for my chosen form of nicotine consumption. they are maliciously ignorant and refuse to be educated and are too happy to tell me about diacetyl, popcorn lung and how my pants are going to catch fire 'when my e-cig explodes'.

    You cannot fix stupid.

    The only folks I know offline that vape are the ones that work in the local vape shop near me. I do not see them outside the shop, and we never discuss politics, as the shop is usually too busy for that.

    So sadly, I am the one here who is marginalized by others. Those that I know that voted for Trump, will now deny it, and refuse to discuss anything, so I am left to whinge about it online in order to have any kind of discussion on it.

    Not to get too into it, but the FCC, FTC and treasury dept, as per Trump are hostile to consumers, and prices on internet service, tv service and mobile phone and mobile have already increased as per Trump's FCC chair Ajit Pai, and likely to go up another 20% by end of year, while favoritism for monopolies in the tech sector are being pushed by lobbyists...

    I work in IT and internet tech, so the FCC, FTC and what happens with these things directly effects my work.

    So as not to derail this thread into the abyss, feel free to PM me if you'd like to discuss further. I welcome your thoughts, anyones thoughts, as long as you all are civilized. :)

    Nope the political threads are elsewhere on this site.
    As you are well aware.

    I expect that as election time approaches it will get more difficult to keep politics out of the vaping threads.

    That's prudy! I'm going in for the purple one next. Gonna top it with a gold rda. Getting ready for that LSU vs Georgia game @Wicked Gene :)

    I do have a problem with my silver Squeeze 2 though. Accessing the menu screen by pressing the fire button and + button is not just fiddly, it don't work at all any more. Maybe a firmware update will fix it? I was able to set everything up the way I like it before it stopped working though....

    This will not confine itself to products. Wait until China decides to call in all it's paper holding American land property. The Chinese own a big percentage of American land, possibly more than many Americans desire knowing about. Then, you've got holdings in American Treasury Notes or Bonds that can be called in on as well. China is also backing the Mexican silver peso with its gold, as of a few years back.

    Russia is out of debt and has been for at least five years now. This is how Russia was able take the lead on the BRICS market, Brazil, Russia, Indonesea/India, China, Sweeden. It's a conglomerate basket currency based on gold and their own private banking system. There's no need of the U.S. dollar even as a reserve currency. We are in effect being shut out of the finance market.

    The world is tired of the American bully and its refusal to behave appropriately. This can also be seen as happening in the now slightly rising intrest in a gradual lead to hyperinflation domestically. Our dollar is only valued by our nation and it's coming a time akin to Germany, where guys dumped wheel barrow loads of cash and stole the wheel barrows. There's nothing backing the U.S. dollar any longer except confidence. This might sound too "out there" to be believed but it is as true as I'm aware to state it.

    Why do other countries then still take the dollar? Well they convert it over and hopefully to invest into something gold or silver backed. Debt is a powerful tool as well. That is all the dollar is, a measure of debt. When the paper is called on to produce the real good/s, America will come up short. Other nations know this as well. We've already lost and not a shot is fired.

    "Move along, these are not the droids you seek."

    Excuse me, the new SS316 coil I'm vaping on causes brain farts. 26 awg, wrapped 8 'round 2.5mm ID. It hits at 0.50 ohms. The Wasp just loves it. :) I was using Kanthal but it started flaking off into the juice well. Figured time to change up something.

    "And now back to your regularly scheduled programming, ..."

    I laid out the dimensions on paper in comparison to some mods.

    not as tall as the BB, 3/8" shorter in height, 1/2" less in length, but then same as 2 bb's in width, minus 3 panels.

    Sounds pretty good actually... I'm pretty much done with buying more gear, I have 3 BB, 3 SV and a bucket full of Therions (75 and 75C) It will have to be something truly special for me to contemplate....Oh, wait....I did say I'll probably get one of the VandyVape Simpletons or whatever, mostly for the MTL rda and Aspire is supposed to launch a Nautilus AIO pretty soon.....

    Eightvape has them also... the only 2 US authorized retailers or so says Dovpo's site

    upload_2018-7-12_15-58-27.png

    Used the 17% discount code for the 4th, plus rewards points from an RDA I bought long ago ;)

    Current price is the second pic at $68 with 15off4me code...

    eightvape has it for this...

    upload_2018-7-12_16-0-59.png

    Not sure if they have a discount code active.

    That's a beauty but for that price I'd probably just get another hadeon or an authentic haku.

    I will admit though the price is a bit much, but it is a proven design.

    So, before I pull the trigger on the v1 Pico Squeeze in black, and a black top-cap for the Wasp Nano from FT, is there any reason NOT to buy one?

    (other than being limited to 18650 batteries, which is not a problem for me, also I'm avoiding the v2 of the Pico Squeeze due to it's larger size and not liking the appearance since it dont come in FULL BLACK without any shiny on it)​

    This will be my "outside the house" squonk setup, and I have the VT Inbox v3 as my "at home" squonk mod, which right now is married to a Nudge 22.

    Please advise. All opinions are welcome. :)

    Like @So619Cal said! I have 5 of them, three in continuous use, two as a back-up. The Luxotic silicone bottles make a big difference, definitely get them now!

    What he said. :giggle: They truly are a stupendous value. I hesitated for a long time buying one. Now I own 4 of them, 3 still sealed in the box, and plotting to buy more.

    I’m really liking the haku and hadaly clones. They are giving the recurve a run for its money.

    Abstrakt vape deal of the week. Five 120ml bottles of juice and a revolver tank for $39.99. Don’t really care about the tank but the price on the juice is great.
