    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

    I still can't believe they use Lithium in medicine. They gave it to me once and a friend of mine thought I was on Heroin which I would never ever touch.

    Never ceases to amaze me how everything comes out of the ground, cars, houses, electronics, food, you name it anything and everything we make and use comes out of the ground.
    I can't think of anything that doesn't.

    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?

    Today I learned that my 12 year old nephew told his religion teacher off in front of the whole class for denigrating gay people. He told her that he loves his gay aunt when she said we need to hate some things...like gays.

    I asked him what his friends thought, fearing he may be ostracized, and he said, no they think you are really cool. They know all about you; that you're a gamer and everything.

    The teacher is now on an 'extended holiday' for at least a year.

    My heart just burst with love and pride for him.
