Current events and commentary on non-vaping issues, or the stuff where vaping is not the main theme.

Plain Packaging, Scott

Plain packaging - have you considered it, DrGottlieb of FDA? After all, it may save the whole thing if you do it right. Go back to its source and start from there.


In this rant, read:

  • FDA being sued by a collection of stale fruitcakes or usual suspects.
  • Five years ago, Simon Chapman had an idea. And what an idea it was!

Chef Stan's Cookbok

Stanton Glantz has been cooking for decades now; we can all draw from his huge experience. Not nearly as much as he's drawn from funds and grants, but hey.

We're showing you Chef Stan's three simple recipes for study and research churning. You can try two of them at home.

Your Patron Saints

It's so hard to be an adult in the world today. You really need somebody to mind your business.And take that daunting child rearing work from you.

Last week, tobacco control addicts had their own Woodstock, WCTOH2018. Although their disease is no child's play, its symptoms can be a real fun. Here's my Top Ten

Idiocracy of Today

We live in interesting times. A wrong tweet can cost you much - your job, your social life, even your peace of mind. However, if you are setting someone up for a heart attack and do it on camera, that's just cool.

Third Hand Smoke And Mirrors

They can suggest dangerous connection of third hand smoke and cancer, but they haven't proven a thing. Although there are more than enough people whose exposure to it is significantly bigger than in others.

What exactly is the objective here? Forbidding grandparents to see their grandchildren if one of them is a smoker because there are some nasty residues in their clothes that could harm the infant?
