    Today I randomly learned that

    Bible study students are being triggered by the crucifixion!

    And anti tobacco tactics are being used against coca cola
    http://www.chicagotribune.com/business/ct-coca-cola-deception-lawsuit-20170105-story.html

    So thats what I have learned today
    How can the NNA AU claim to represent vapers if they don't bother to talk to all of them?
    If they dont talk and listen to the whole vaping community, how can they know what vapers want or need?
    If most of the vaping community is ignored- who do the NNA AU really represent?

    I think I just (accidentally?) learned that Gearbest and Everbuying are the same company or owned by the same company.
    Long story short......I got a reply to a ticket I created on Gearbest saying they are not able to ship my order number xxx
    and will have to give me GB points or refund via Paypal. I don't have any GB orders waiting to ship. The only order number
    xxx I have is on Everybuying Will see how they explain that one.

    Ive got a shaving brush made of Silvertop badger hair and its amazing. I do have one of the replaceable blade (astra) type of razors which i love. Having said that my everyday razor is an Aldi 6 blade unit and it is fantastic.

    Sometimes its easy to miss the obvious especially if its so common it becomes easy to miss

    Lithium is a metal thats used in batteries(well doh!) but its also the stuff they use in psychotropic medicine and Australia is one of the largest producers of the stuff - it is element number 3 on the element chart

    Lithium - The Lightest Metal on Earth



    Facts About Lithium


    If this is your kind of thing - His other videos are pretty interesting too (Live science also has further easy info on alot of the elements too)

    This one is cesium - wich they are looking at for using for prostate cancers

    Facts About Cesium


    In some of these cases I am amazed that they can even mine some of this stuff - let alone use the same volatile stuff in everything from medicines to planes to batteries

    Today I randomly found out that this is what it looks like if you were giving birth and had a chewbacca mask on

    Some are arguing

    Lab grown meat could be a thing within 5 years time- This article is about the possibility of eating panda - but saw a movie recently where in some dystopian future we could also be eating celebraties and grafting bits of their skin onto ourselves (antiviral from 2012- it was very boring - but interesting idea)

    And in 2017 Africa they still scarily superstitous - this devil goat made their news and even the only comment desribes this poor little thing as a NASTY EVIL GOAT.. I had no idea either that they still use shillings

    oh and Zygmunt Bauman died aged 95 (You might have noticed this in the papers) - Hes still not considered first level sociology by many but I think he will be in time- for those who dont know some of his ideas in simple terms include liquid modernity which is the idea that unlike in previous ages where ideas were fixed about morality, how to live etc the nature of modern ideas and morality and life in general now is short lived and ever changing causing uncertainty and disconnects.In order to produce the feeling of continuity information/ data is more important than ever.

    He also believed that the holocaust was not a jewish thing perse but rather a logical outcome of our modernity. He also argued that the reason that people are so fearful today is really - noone is in charge and the systems that used to make us feel empowered are more distant from us than ever. Not a perfect explanation of him and I know leaves alot of questions- but a very very basic one
