Ground control to Vaper Tom... one day I'll write that.
A long time back I opined that while Electrofags look like cigarettes (in a few cases, like cigars or pipes) they don't need to. They could be built into biros or coffee cup handles or plastic imitation thumbs or anything at all. They might even make this possible.
They look like traditional smoking materials because the sales target are smokers. No other reason. If you make it look like an asthma inhaler, it will do the same job but smokers won't touch it. We want to feel like we're smoking.
So they look like cigarettes. The ends light up. There is a definite feel and look about them. There doesn't need to be.
Suppose the Cleggeron Coagulation decided ' The hell with it, kill them all, ban smoking and Electrosmoking now.' Couldn't happen? We are not dealing with reasonable people, we are dealing with tedious morons who think they know best and who think they own the people who elected them and who pay their wages. Just like last time. And, probably, next time.
Well now, if you were stopped by their Stasi in the street and searched, you'd be done for having anything that looked like a cigarette on you.
However, if it looked like a USB stick, well...
A battery, an atomiser, a pad of juice. The shape is irrelevant.
Something to consider while the first tobacco harvest cures.
