Misleading headline, not just 'cos it should be "size-ism", but homophobia and racism aren't actually banned here, just severely frowned upon. Unless you vote UKIP, then they're both held in high regard. ;-)
If you do it to the point of it becoming hate speech though, THEN laws are getting broken...

Fattism, Sizeism. lol

Yeah and when people start dying left and right from diabetes and cardiovascular disorders, I guess it'll be Healthist to discriminate over lifestyle choices that lead to unnecessary doctors visits and for people to not find them attractive because of their morbid obesity. You know, there's being over or underweight because of genetic reasons and then there's stuffing your face or starving yourself then crying when people point out that's not normal.

So, E-Cig's do around 5% of the damage cigarettes do according to the most up to date study. Ironic that there is some boney wee knuckled government guy on stuttering and muttering about how dangerous they are. I bet you in a few years, the oil will be watered down shite which costs x4 timed what it does today. The fucking jumped up surpressing bastards. I wish everyone would leave people the fuck alone.

Haven't been to this thread for a while. Sorry to hear about your loss OL and with having a challenging month, hope things are getting better.

April's been pretty hard for me too regarding project work, i just haven't had any quality rest time outside of it and I'm a bit anxious as well for my career atm.

I'm feeling a bit better today as i realise that i need to just do better, i need more YI in my life.

I do enjoy coming here, getting my mind off stuff and discussing everything shenmue and how amazing that it's relevant again (in a positive way) and it's also therapeutic to just read how were getting along. Today I've kinda realised just how small some of my problems really are. So easy to get lost by the daggers of your own mind...

Who saying what?
To be honest I wouldn't mind if some tax was put on, they must be losing a lot of money since actual ciggies are taxed to insane levels, so a few %age on vape oils would be fine by me. If they make it effectively as expensive as buying a 20-deck every 3 days though, then they can fuck off! If they did do that, I bet an illegal market would spring up pretty quickly too, so ultimately they'd be shooting themselves in the foot!

A month or two back when I was drunk I tried a "real" cig. Even though I was drunk and I kinda wanted a "real" one, it was still disgusting compared to what I've become used to with the vape!

I've been so in love with the process of making my own comic, as well as reading current and past series, I'm already planning two more. One of which is a friend's project, actually, but it's so good I want to be part of the process.

No way in hell I can do them at the moment, as I need to start promoting Monsters, but I definitely will later this year.

Excellent work dude! 8)

I'll never go "back", but I don't know if I could quit the e-cig. The authorities should just relax and accept this new addictive commodity that's slipped itself into so many lives and made things less gross and less expensive for so many people. It's a wave that's still just really getting started so they'd be crazy to try to stop it. They already do take 20% of sale price in VAT anyway...insanity to even put that at risk.

This is the same reason I would see weed legalised too. Pretty much everyone knows, or knows of, someone who can get their hands on it. There is a HUGE black market, so they may as well just give up trying to stop something which has become so prevalent despite being illegal. Only weed though, some real drugs can be dangerous so should still be discouraged, even though the market for all of those is also massive in this country. Prostitution is another one, it's quite a thriving industry, make it legal, pull some taxes and make it controlled. Money AND human rights increase (since women smuggled from poor places and forced into it would probably be less of a thing).

Of course, it's not all good, since legalising something basically means that "the man" has another few markets to invade and pillage, raw commercialism and men in suits eventually win, again. I think even he is likely to be a better and more genial boss than a pimp getting you hooked on smack, though. But home grown weed can be lovely, not so sure legal stuff grown to a "standard" would be as nice, but having the choice of different named ones in a shop would be OK I guess...

I actually enjoyed the first two-thirds-ish of that! 8) :oops:

It looked like he was using some insanely juicy sub-ohm shit though, so I'd be amazed if it lasted him four days. :!:

Whilst I just bigged all that up, I do also believe in respecting others and adhering to the same rules as cig-smoking, that is, not using indoors or around others for the most part. Though I did think the laws in the UK were already there...
