Would that prevent it from fogging up, though? Just because it's waterproof, that just weans water can't get into it.

It doesn't really fog up, but condensation does form on it like it does on the tile.  But it's usually still readable, and it's easy to wipe off the condensation with a swipe of your thumb, it is a watch after all, so it's small.

Time doesn't exist when I'm in the shower.  It's just me and the hot water that slowly thaws me from my slumber.  It takes however long it takes.

I don't drink coffee or energy drinks or whatever (because I don't have a sense of smell and they all taste like bitter poison), so my shower is the only thing that wakes me up in the morning.  I absolutely hate when there's no hot water to wake me up.  Makes me so fucking mad.  I get mad just thinking about it!

Oh, and when did smoking get so fucking nerdy?  Found this post on another forum.

I don't think this counts as risque content, so please if there's a mod out there who thinks otherwise don't hesitate to tell me.

Now that that's out of the way, does anyone else here have an e-cig? It would be cool if us vapers have a thread to discuss things in.

My PV (personal vaporizer) is the Silver Bullet from Altsmoke.com I currently use the IGO-W and IGO-S rebuildable atomizers and use 18650 AW batteries with it. I usually stick to low nicotine nowadays since I'm running dual-coils on the igo-w but I go up to 18mg when using the igo-s. As far as flavours I like my fruity flavors as well as traditional tobacco vapes.

If you're new to vaping and just started using one, have never heard of e-cigs, a veteran vaper, or just a guy who smokes and wants to quit; this thread is open to you and I'm open to discussing or explaining what this scenes all about.

NNNEEERRRRRDDDSS!

Okay, looks to me like it's just another case of people making relatively simple things stupidly over-complicated.

Working overnight, I've seen long timers who are no longer jolted by caffeine using nicotine patches, gum, and e cigs on breaks.  Many aren't smokers kicking the habit. They're just getting a pick me up.

Precisely what the cigarette people were hoping for.  Because - surprise, surprise - they are the ones who make the fake-cig nicotene delivery systems, which are FAR more effective in getting the drug into your system than are cigarettes themselves.

Can't blame people for trying to stay in business, really.  In the end, it isn't the nicotine that kills people; it's the tar and other crap in traditional cigs that's carcinogenic.  So, they are essentially making a safer product. 

Sure, it's addictive, but then again, so is alcohol, coffee, and Krispy Kreme donuts...

I have a clock in the bathroom just hung really high up so I can see it over the top of the shower stall.

Good idea but I can't do that, the drop ceiling is too low, only about a 6 inch gap between the shower curtain rod and the ceiling.

I don't have any of my writing samples because they are confidential and owned by my previous company. What would work as a writing sample? In my downtime, I am working on some proposals for conferences. Should I get one of those nice and fancied up and use that as a writing sample?


Also: How often should one give a dog a bath...Maggie is kind of starting to stink, but is that just her natural smell?


Thanks, friends!

Day off.  Sipping an Arnold Palmer and reading a good book.

Once I do meet the love of my life, if I go to Facebook and talk NON-STOP about how wonderful he is and how much I love him, punch me in the face for being stupid.

There are TWO people (men?!?!) on my Facebook that do this right now. And I will delete them as soon as I get around to doing that...actually, I kind of want to post my feelings on gun control and let the rest sort itself out.
