    So you think there is a nega-wave coming? I'm still in shock coming back to the States, but hysteria is the word of the day. We should stock up?

    I definitely plan on stocking up. And if everyone else does too there may be a shortage. Nic/vg/pg is a staple. I can get by with one or two recipes that are 2 flavors a piece. So that should last a while

    I've always used syringes for measuring flavoring, since I never mix more than 90ml at a time, and for several years I mixed only 58ml at a time (because I use 60ml bottles, and need "shaking space" -- and even-numbered amounts usually keep the measured ml amounts in the tenths or hundredths of a ml, rather than going into the thousandth decimal place). In the last couple years, I've used a 50ml graduated cylinder to measure/mix the PG, VG, and nicotine, then pour that into the bottle into which I add flavors with syringes.

    And you're right, it's really not difficult, but it CAN be very frustrating when you're first starting, or when trying out a new recipe.

    Rhianne, I use these pipe cleaning brushes to clean the inside of my coils with hot water after a dry burn. Pipe Cleaners 001.JPG
    I got these from a Hardware store in town. They are available everywhere, and cheap!
    They have fiber bristles so they wont damage the coils

    There are nearly 20,000 more signatures on it now than there were earlier today when I first looked. Well done, you!

    Those look a lot like the tiny brushes I use to clean my "dry leaf" atomizers -- which of course get very "resin-y." :D

    Did some mixing and started my career as a bootlegger ha, washed a couple rda’s, and ordered some more Dinner Lady LT. On a side note, FA Raspberry is outstanding!

    Thanks for the tip. This will be my first dry burn and cleaning, so anything that would make it easier is great!

    I have been promoting Petitions to the President since way before you ever heard about vaping. Join CASAA and The Smoke Free Advocacy Groups Etc. and do more than just wish it happens. You need to make your voice heard. Back on 8/8 I called the FDA so many times I got the same person on the phone~!

    Have you heard anything about the VTA thing? Maybe this should be a concerted effort between vendors and vapers!

    I ordered some of my favorite juices from Broke Dick last night. Thought about all this bullsh*t going on during the day today and tried to put things into perspective. Got home and ordered a few more bottles of my favorite juice from Flawless. That's it. If shit hits the fan, my next order will be for 5 gallons of nicotine and go the DIY route.

    Here's a little something for the feds and trump and everyone else in our corrupt government.....:finger:

    These are awesome, I have some, too.

    Petition: Check
    More nic: Check.
    Fuming mad: Check

    Pretty bad headache, and my TV died. And so did Eddie Money. Man, that made me sad. Such good memories.

    I called the White House today. Also signed a few petitions and watched everything I could get my hands on. Ordered 2 liters of nic and some VG. Found out I need about two more liters to be really set.:headbang:. That will be maybe next week. And I mixed for a friend and a few for myself. Rewicked a couple of rdas and charged some batteries.

    Still hopping mad and frustrated at this whole debacle.

    I vaped while replacing brake lines on the truck. Left a lengthy comment on POTUS' post about vaping being better than smoking but keeping the youth away stressing how much my health has improved and how fruit flavors are my go-to.

    Gave some shit to Vape Wild, they've been pulling dick moves lately. Canning people without warning, made notions they had 'other investors who wish to remain anonymous' as they rolled out their vuze pods. People suggested the 'silent partner' is RJR, they didn't deny it. They've been whittling down their list of flavors, renaming others. Usually they'd keep people abreast of changes like name changes or what flavors were getting axed and give people a chance to stock up before they were discontinued. Not this time, and not just 4 or 5 flavors. Around 30 flavors got nixed overnight with no warning, including about the only flavor I gave a shit about. My adv, wrecking ball. Fucking pricks.

    It wouldn't have been such a slap in the face except not but a day or two earlier someone asking about the potential new changes coming with deeming stuff, with what went down with POTUS and hhs and all that. They responded 'we don't know yet but you guys (customers) will be the first to know'. So much for that. When I asked customer service, they said flavors had been cut because they felt certain flavorings wouldn't make the pmta process. How sketchy were their ingredients? Kinda sad, not at all the same company I remember from years back. If it's true they're just an extension of RJR I hope they fucking tank. Oh but while silently cutting 30 flavors, they had time to release a new flavor. Just like after they canned a really well liked employee for no reason other than 'cutbacks' 2 days later they were like 'looking for applicants for our store'.

    Glad I got into diy and thankfully the 2 flavors my mom typically vapes were still in stock. It'll give me a bit more time to try and replicate them with diy so VW can suck my scrote. Now that the one decent flavor (imo) they had is gone, fuck the rest of their janky coil killing juice.

    I'm so disappointed to hear this about VW. They were one of my favorite companies. Sure sounds like they've sold out big.

    First thing this morning I set up the Athena squonker that came from Vapenw the other day. This is a silver set, the gunmetal will be here in a few days. I'm glad I ordered another one - I like the RDA a lot. The flavor from it is fantastic. What I don't like so much is the switch, may have to fiddle with it just a little. I have to press on it pretty hard sometimes to get it to fire. Because the throw is shallow, it's actually harder to press than the button on the Ram box.

    we used to drive to indiana and buy 30-40 cartons. they were like 1/2 price of here. and i would run my gas tank real low, then fill up there = the savings paid for the cost of the drive.

    I remember hearing my uncle talk about truckers from NY making runs to NC to buy cigarettes. He was a truck driver for 27 years. This was back in the 60s and 70s - you'd see the Highway Patrol with trucks pulled over on the side of I-85, entire truckloads of cigarettes seized because the drivers were breaking the law, trying to take a haul like that out of the state. I bet plenty of those guys ended up in jail.

    I think the limit back then was 10 cartons. Cigs were $5 a carton (or less) here and probably 8 or 10 times that in NY.

    Well this will date me but when I was growing up my folks were paying .35 cents a pack.
    By the time I started smoking they were just over .60 a pack, 6 dollars and change for a carton.
    We would drive out to the reservation and by cartons for 3.00.

    I think there were still places in Carolina that I bought cigs for myself for 35 cents a pack, when I first started. I remember after I was married (hubbs and I both smoked the same brand) we bought cartons for less than 5 bucks. You and I are practically the same age, but more than likely the difference is that I live in the southeast, where tobacco used to be grown just everywhere. Even now it sounds like they're cheaper here than most anywhere else in the country.

    We drove to the Res this year, and it was about $100 a carton.

    Checked out a nicotine calculator to see how long it would last me and it just all hit me.

    We all know about the flavor ban in Michigan (where I live) and in the White House but my employer is also making the facility nicotine free starting in January. No more vape breaks.

    I know I've talked about the work ban before but it all just kinda hit me. Wtf am I gonna do?

    You're gonna keep mixing. If places can't ship to you, you'll have plenty of middlemen, or gals. When it's time for a break, or lunch, you're gonna walk to the nearest sidewalk or go for a drive and vape like a motherfuckin' boss. That's what you're gonna do.

    Damn!!! I gotta quit sayin no more!!! Just bought 300mls of Bake It Nana Pie for $8 bucks from Fuggin Vapor. Well the fuggin shipping cost more than the damn juice!!! Had a 10% off code which got it to just a hair over $16 bucks overall. It's a flavor that I'm interested in trying, so what the hell, it's only money!!!
