    AVF seems to be running at normal speed for me.. but I will say the new version of Firefox keeps having hiccups..freezing and I have to use task manager to close it and then re open it .. which is a bit annoying !

    E-CIGS AN AID TO QUITTING SMOKES, SENATOR SAYS




    "TASMANIAN Liberal Senator Eric Abetz is calling on the government to legalise e-cigarettes, saying they allow people to satisfy their nicotine craving without the tar, additives and smoke.As it stands, it is illegal to sell, buy or use e-cigarette cartridges "

    (Now all left and right political crap aside am not sure that Abetz is a good look for vaping all things considered? Just sayin... )

    Still sneezing - but I can understand that paranoia - after all a third of europe died with the plague and then there was the spanish flu which we still dont have a cure for - No wonder some countries have taken to wearing surgical masks as a norm


    Oddly tho - I still occasionally find it offensive when I see it when I am out and about -

    I understand it - I am not hurt by my own being offended - but it is rather a strange feeling at times

    Mystery time from a blog i just happened to catch (not normally a reader of this blog - am not really a libertarian- harm reduction things aside mostly they bother my social justice nerve )


    but this mystery was interesting

    Beyond nicotine

    MONDAY, JUNE 11, 2018 AT 21:45
    To no-one's surprise:
    Jennifer Motles Svigilsky detests cigarettes. A former human rights lawyer with the United Nations ... [she represents] one of the world’s largest cigarette companies, Phillip Morris International (PMI).



    But wait, there's more:


    "[In the short term,] we need to provide alternative choices to smokers who cannot quit [or cannot quit yet]."
    In the long term, she says, "we may not even be in the nicotine business."


    Let that sink in.


    "In the long term, we may not even be in the nicotine business."



    You couldn’t make it up.

    Liberal Senator moves to support vaping, says it was a ‘no-brainer’
    https://www.2gb.com/liberal-senator-moves-to-support-vaping-says-it-was-a-no-brainer/



    An interesting read - but think their precautionary policies might take precedence unless it is show that alot of the precautionary stuff is a crock

    Maybe they should put that biometric lock on cigarettes. You know, for the chilluns.
