    Angry Humans, I disappoint.

    So today I was out with my younger sister at the strathpine shopping centre, happily vaping away whilst waiting for the coffee that we had ordered at Coffee Club when the "manager" ( a young, decrepit looking teenager) came over and told me I wasn't aloud to smoke indoors. I told her I wasn't smoking, I was using my personal vaporizer, and that it was completely legally acceptable for me to use it indoors as the vapour that I inhale and exhale contains less carcinogens/toxic chemicals and such than the very air she was breathing. She repeatedly argued that it was a fire hazard and that if it looked like smoke, it MUST be smoke and is therefore a fire hazard and she could not endanger her other patrons by letting me use it whilst in "her" cafe. She was quite obviously the manager on duty or whatever you would call it whilst the actual manager was absent, and I'll end by saying that the manager of my local Coffee Club in the fortitude valley is quite happy for me to vape in his store, and has even told patrons who ask that it's perfectly safe and such. People -_-

    lol you should have pointed to the coffee machine and explained that it works on much the same principle, and did she think that was a fire hazard?

    Just because there is no laws about vaping in public or under cover areas doesn't mean its a "get out of jail" free card to vape all over the place. Would you pull this stunt if you were on a airplane and a airplane attendant asked you to stop vaping on the plane?

    You should have blown a nice big plume in her face and said 'does that smell like smoke to you'

    Because taking lithium-ion batteries with you on planes and exposing them to changes in pressure is an intelligent thing to do? A friend of mine had an ego "pop" in his bag on a flight to sydney, so, not a good idea. And as for annoying every other passenger on the plane in an enclosed spaced, again, no.
