    That's a fair point. So I guess a large part of the problem with vaping is the total lack of clear info that this is NOT a toy, these are NOT your standard alkaline batteries, and some care needs to be taken to ensure a safe outcome. All of which seems somewhat obvious to me, though I confess, I really had no idea how powerful these batteries are, until I read and questioned a great deal, over at Butthole Central. That definitely needs to be underlined for all new users.

    But even so... I still feel that the major problem is just the general stupidity at play nowadays in the world, for which, partly, we can blame the nannies with their "contents is hot" on coffee cups and "not intended for human consumption" on fucking laundry detergent. It's become so that if there isn't any info about the potential dangers of some product, nobody questions, nobody asks, they just figure that what they already know -- little or nothing -- is all they need to know.

    I wish we could go back to "you pays yer quarter, you takes yer chances," but that isn't very likely.

    We have the blameless society moving up in our ranks.
    Of course they are just following their leaders examples.

    The debbil made me do it.
    illegal immigrants.
    Someone of a different skin tone.
    A different religion.
    A different sex.
    Doesn't speak my language.
    You name it. It is not my fault they put that curve in the road and caused me to run in the ditch!

    I worked in retail home improvement and lawn equipment for the last 5 years.
    You just can't fix stupid.

    I was beginning to hate people in general.

    Retirement is SOOOOO nice.

    Say you walk in to buy a bottle of vodka that clearly says 40% ABV but the bottle is actually filled with everclear 90% ABV
    is it my fault for buying a mislabeled bottle or the people that put the label on the bottle in the first place?

    "do not attempt to stop blade with genitals."

    We should take off all warning labels and let Darwins Law rule the land.


    First month or 2 will be alittle rough but the video's will be entertaining.

    Those who mislabeled the bottle! And you're right about the battery makers, it's a crying shame, but they're in China, there's little or nothing that the US can about it... except be vigilant.

    Batteries could be tested by the CPSC and those not matching labels could be banned from import.
    And if a company keeps violating labeling requirements all imports from that company could be banned from import.

    Sad that we actually need a nanny state govt to protect us from corporations sometimes.

    That was actually the reason for the very first nannying that our gov't undertook; the USDA and the FDA, to protect us from the unscrupulous in both food and drugs. If they'd stuck to that, instead of going on the payroll of the unscrupulous, vapers wouldn't be in this mess.

    It seems to always be a minority messing it up for the majority.
