Pardon my ignorance but is there anyone on here who can explain to me what the point of the thing below is? Why would someone pay money to buy some contraption whose soul purpose is to fill a balloon with vapor of whatever he was inserting into the machine? Whats the point of all this?

Less offensive smelling shamanism

Greenery. When it is heated to a certain temperature, certain chemicals are released into the air, but it is below burning so there is no smoke. It offers an alternative to people who want to partake of certain things but not have to deal with harsh smoke. It also comes with the bonus of a cleaner experience, more efficient usage of the goods, and not as much smell is produced.

 

Idk how much I'm able to say rule-wise, so that's pretty much it :P

Ahhh, ok never mind. I was searching around for e cig info and instead walk into a video that would put a smile on the faces of Cheech and Chong.


Anyone here use e cigarettes? I've ordered a starter kit in an attempt to help me quit smoking and I'm wondering if I made the right decision.

My Mom and Aunty used them before. It worked for them for a while then they went back to smoking again :P. They found themselves over using the e cigs and it wasn't satiating their cravings. Initially it did help but it wasn't a long term solution. Good luck though. Maybe it will work for you?

I hope so, I've cut down from over a pack a day to half a pack and it was hard just to do that. I tried the patches, they made my skin red and itchy for days, and I tried the gum/lozenges, they made me go green and feel sick and want to puke. I'm hoping these e cigs will be a healthier alternative that will lead to me finally quitting. I never knew people were running around on the net calling it vaping.

It's for... medicinal herbal consumption. biggrin.gif Keeps your house from smelling like skunk, and it's much less carcinogenic than directly burning such materials.

And just recently I read about the 50th anniversary for the "Summer of Love" coming up in a few years... rolleyes.gif biggrin.gif

The things I find out about you guys when just making small talk

1000

 

Anyways, I decided on the starter kit below and also ordered an extra pack of cartridges. I'm hoping it doesn't take forever to ship and I'm hoping it ships from within Canada and not the US so I don't run into any trouble with customs. They're touchy about importing stuff with nicotine in it across the boarder. I went with that starter kit because it looks a lot like a real cigarette. I was shocked the cost of shipping was under 7 bones so I'm guessing  it may be being shipped within Canada. If it works out I'll probably toss the kit once the vaporizer wares out and get myself a proper kit for grown up vape headsrolleyes.gif I never knew they had so many different kits on the market

In answer to your question, DF, my wife went from 2+ packs /day of Virginia Slims to e-cigs, overnight. So far she's doing really well, she likes them alot and now she doesn't stink like cigarettes anymore (plus her cough has already improved after only 2 weeks, which was the main reason she quit in the first place).

Well that's good to know, is she using a starter pack like the one I posted or did she go for one of those big pipe looking contraptions where you mix your own juice and fill your own cartridges?

I went on a little tube buying spree earlier: got 2 pairs of NOS 1952 cbs/hytron 6SN7's -- one pair for use in my coming EC Electra and another for my ECBA, which only needs one, but I figured a spare would be nice.  Those 2 aforementioned pairs also tested better than any of the single tubes I could find on ebay. 

 

I also got a matched quad of those fancy Psvane EL34PH's for the Electra as well.  I was originally going to wait until I had gotten a feel for the stock tubes, but... idk, I figured I'd buy better tubes anyways before formulating a final opinion on the amp, so I may as well order them sooner than later.  I still plan on using the stock ones for a bit, though.

 


 

My urge to buy tubes may have been inspired by my dream last night wherein I found a really large 6SN7 in my grandmother's backyard.  It had a stack of Sennheiser HD6x0 driver magnets inside which gave off super saiyan 2 electric sparks.

 

A head-fi member I won't name (no one in this thread) said he'd rape me if I didn't let him borrow this tube, but I told him he couldn't rape what he couldn't see and woke up. 

 

Nothing about any of that fazed me in the moment.

You just made my week! I can now go to work tomorrow feeling a little better about the world.

 

The sheer absurdity of the entire thing cracks me up. It's like a mix of head-fi + arrested development + parks and recs + south park + family guy _inception. Awesome.

 

BTW, was it DigitalFreak? tongue.gif

No, it really wasn't anyone in the thread, nor was it anyone who's been in my dream posts either here or there before, which I find kind of odd in retrospect.
