A Smoke Oddity.

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.

At least you have the option to grow ur own, having just moved downunder I shocked at how aus have followed simmilar policies with the exception that its illegal to grow tobacco. Am sure all this legislation has its roots in agenda 21. Although its currently more evident in the UK this is a global movement to control the masses.

I was very surprised to discover that they are now banning ornamental tobacco.

"TAX officers yesterday raided a Eurobin farm seizing and destroying “ornamental” tobacco plants.

Yesterday the tax office spokeswoman confirmed the definition of banned tobacco had been expanded to include Nicotiana sylvestris, also known as night scented tobacco.

“This means no one is allowed to grow Nicotiana sylvestris unless they have a licence from the tax office,” she said.

“This includes for any commercial purposes.

“Nicotiana sylvestris has now been added to the list of prohibited tobacco plants,which includes Nicotiana tabacum and Nicotiana rusticum.

What next I wonder?

They really have got the bit between their teeth.

You could always investigate the properties of Trigonelline in coffee and fenugreek.
It turns to niacin when it roasts.
I suppose you could combine it with some other smoking herb.
It appears that tea was very popular in Germany.

The Other Prohibition

It all depends on whether you can stand curry flavoured cigarettes.
But it should confuse the neighbours wonderfully.

Sigh. When will it all end?

Anyway, here's a joke....

Jane and Arlene are outside their nursing home, having a drink and a smoke, when it starts to rain. Jane pulls out a condom, cuts off the end, puts it over her cigarette, and continues smoking.

Arlene: What in the hell is that?

Jane: A condom. This way my cigarette doesn't get wet.

Arlene: Where did you get it?

Jane: You can get them at any drugstore.

The next day, Arlene hobbles herself into the local drugstore and announces to the pharmacist that she wants a box of condoms.

The pharmacist, obviously embarrassed, looks at her kind of strangely (she is after all, over 80 years of age), but very delicately asks what brand of condom she prefers.

'Doesn't matter Sonny, as long as it fits on a Camel.'

The pharmacist fainted.
