#fact168) long ago, clans that wanted to get rid of unwanted people without killing them used to burn their houses down -- hence the expression "to get fired"
@The Sage, you... I like you
I don't like the new doctor's new sonic screwdriver...
Ew. I'm a smoker and I would never ever blow that cancerous smoke in anyone's face. Please tell me people don't actually do this.
@slightly, people are a$sholes man, anything can happen
@slightly, my friend blew some into the fans of my computer, let's just say he is no longer in this world.
@slightly, im a smoker and some idiot smoker did this to me. There are idiots out there who will do it
@slightly, oh believe me, they do. I have this chick at work who always stands next to me and is totally oblivious of where the smoke is going. We are outside a lot. She also thought we should car pool... She lit up in my car and I made her get out on the curb.
@SoberPillow, that's awesome! Way to go:)
@slightly, Some kids at my school thinks they're cool for smoking these in the halls, they are complete assholes.
@slightly, remember that e-cigs have no second hand chemicals, and if you have nicotine free flavor it doesn't have any chemicals at all. It is still rude to blow it in someone's face but it won't kill you
@slightly, i blew an ecig in my girlfriends face , then i woke up and cried in the corner from loneliness
@SoberPillow, "lit up" you don't light up an e-cig. And it's just water vapor, no secondhand chemicals.
@slightly, this is a picture of a vaporizer, not actual smoke, just vapor with nicotine
@Sceneblondie, @MayITakeYourHatSir, I know what it is a picture of. I suggest to y'all to do some research.
@Sceneblondie, actually it still has a high amount of lead for a consumer good and also has a lot of formaldehyde as well as other chemicals. They have found recently that they do in fact pose a problem and will most likely get the same treatment as cigarettes in the next few years.
@The Dungeon Master, no lead, no other chemicals, if you buy e cigs prefilled you're asking for chemicals. Where did you find this out?
@sonnyrey4L, research. I looked into bad things relating to e cigs and found that many chemicals are still present although not the same ones found in regular cigarettes.
@jklyt1, she was smoking actual cigs not a vaporizer. I wish she would get one. Is it rude for secret Santa to give her one of these?
@SoberPillow, oh wow who the hell starts smoking in someone else's car without asking? And nah I wouldn't consider it rude if someone got me one of those but they are kinda pricey most the time haha
@SoberPillow, I think K it would be thoughtful cause it is healthier than smoking and I actually used one for about 2 months to quit cigarettes
@jklyt1, lol! I wouldn't have the balls and she would definitely know who got it for her... I like my job, I don't need my house set on fire.
@SoberPillow, well I mean you can buy me one.....I wouldn't burn your house down.....
@Sceneblondie, actually , because there are little to no laws and restrictions on e-cigs, they can put practically whatever they want in them
Love my ecig
Anybody stating that vaping is unhealthy, or anywhere near as bad as cigarettes has not googled the actual studies performed on them. I smoked for 27 years, with a terrible cough, I have been vaping for 6 months, and don't cough at all...hookahs and vaping are not the same thing. Hookahs still burn tobacco (think bong), vaping heats glycerine/glycol.
It's funny how many people switch to vapor because they think it's healthy, and by funny I mean sad.
@Texacan, personally I think they taste horrible. I'd rather quit altogether than switch to a new poison.
@Texacan, wait, Texan Mexican?
@Texacan, Its actually not bad for you. It contains propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin, two natural and FDA approved chemicals used in medical inhalers as a humectant and in food preservatives. It isn't nearly as bad as you seem to think.
@Texacan, the only thing that is the same is that there is nicotine, which isn't all that bad for you. And if they taste horrible, you get them from a bad place
@StatesideCash, but it still is cancerous and contains nicotine.
@Fondled Weiner, no, I'm New Mexican and Texan, my full username is New Texacan, I just shortened it here.
@Texacan, but nicotine doesn't give you cancer, it is simply the drug that gives you the addiction
@Texacan, The sun is more cancerous honestly. More people get melanoma from the sun than cancer from vapes. And you can actually get non-nicotine ones. You control the intake. I have 0mg/ml nicotine cuz I just am used to the action, so its nice to be able to do without the health risks :) I'm not saying its *healthy* per-se, but it is most certainly not unhealthy. And nicotine is just a chemical, it isn't really a carcinogen. That's mainly from the burning tobacco in normal cigs.
@Keyvo23, I don't vape or smoke, and nicotine is still poisonous, even in vapor form.
@Texacan, they actually are better for you than cigarettes. Because the vapes don't have the tar that is found in regular cigarettes. My brother used to be a vape store manager and he explained it all. And if they taste bad you might want to try some different juices because they have thousands.
@Texacan, I believe you'll find it's not AS bad for you isn't it? Though that's not saying much
@Texacan, I wouldn't say healthy but healthier than the other
@StatesideCash, the thing that scares me most is it's lack of FDA regulation. Sure studies made by the companies say they're good but so did the tobacco industry about cigarettes 60 years ago. The way I see it, why injest any foreign chemicals if not for nutritional or medicinal purposes.
@slightly, i just bought a reesee's flavor, nicotine free. It's a lot of fun to play with and it tastes really good
@Texacan, New Mexican and Texan? Those are two states... Were you born in both states? I'm sorry for the questions but I'm bi state curious.
@Texacan, show me the studies that prove that water vapor is unhealthy, and I'll gladly ban water from my grocery stores. It's an oral fixation, without nicotine. With, it's just a nice vessel for addiction.
@Texacan, There is absolutely nothing unhealthy about it. Nicotine is less dangerous than caffeine. The only dangers are buying off brand vaporizers because the cheap ones have cheaper elements which can fragment off I to the glycerin.
@pizza y moi, born and raised in NM, now I live in Texas.
@Baconeaters, a big problem with them is the ones you get in gas stations. Like the blu brand, any juice you get from head shops, and so on, often contain water which can give you pneumonia. The actual vape shops that mix their own stuff stick to the approved ingredients.
@StatesideCash, but they still use nicotine though if I'm not mistaken, which is bad for the consumer.
@Adr3nalinexx, nicotine is a carcinogen...
@Joker420, again, nicotine is a carcinogen.. How is that less dangerous than caffeine?
@0MDerp, nicotine is not currently considered to be a carcinogen. There are studies trying to prove that wrong, but nothing concrete yet. Nicotine is a natural chemical found in the nightshade family of plants, is the reason for addiction, and in high doses is fatal. But also caffeine in high doses is fatal too. I'm not a smoker, but I've done my research xD
@Baconeaters, Actually its not so much a problem as you think. If I sent you a picture of a e-fluid bottle (I have a few laying around) it contains 4 ingredients; PG, VG, nicotine and flavoring. Hell, if you are afraid of the FDA non-regulation, you can even mix your own. Not to say you are wrong however, if the FDA regulated them I would be more comfortable with it, but tbh it really isn't anywhere near as bad as most think.
@saberhume, Actually nicotine is just a chemical stimulant, not unlike caffeine. Its completely fine for you in moderate doses, just as caffeine is. It's when you start taking in a ton that it becomes a problem. But generally its only purpose serves as an addictive agent.
@Texacan, completely healthy compared to real cigs bro
@sonnyrey4L, still sad and disgusting.
@Texacan, not sad, e cigs are helping a lot of people. My mom is one. Vapes don't taste like ass either
They're not as bad for you as some people say, but that doesn't mean be a douche and blow vapor in someone's face, unless they ask you to. Also just because you like the way the vapor tastes DOES NOT mean put the oil directly into your mouth.
@SatansDaughter, this guy in my french class actually blew it in my face and I didn't mind because it smelled like strawberries. So there's something.
@MayITakeYourHatSir, my friend blew the hazelnut coffee in my face and I just sat in class for a minute and inhaled it all :/
Actually, so far nobody actually knows just how safe or harmful e-cigs. But evidence suggests that while they may not be 100% they are likely less unhealthy than cigarettes. This is because e-cigs don't burn - the main danger of cigarettes - and the amount of chemicals you would receive from an e-cig is far less than an actual cigarette.
@Katpee, further, people seem to be confused about one thing: water vapor is steam. That doesn't mean someone should intentional blow it in your face, that's just disrespectful no matter what it is, even if it's just air from their lungs. But if the concern is "second hand" steam, then you're just a blowhard and should cram your smug protests. I mean...you're fussing about steam. Do you get mad when someone cooks ramen in your vicinity?
@Katpee, one more thing - a couple people have said something like "e-cigs are worse..." That's just made up. As I said above, that hasn't been proven and evidence so far directly opposes your assumption.
@Katpee, pot is the same way , it doesn't affect your lungs. MAYBE your throat cause the potsmokers always got rezon in their throats
@Virgina, as an avid pot smoker I can tell you it does affect your lungs, if you get rezin in your throat you might want to use a bong or use screens for your bowl. That being said it's nothing you can't reverse from being healthy and exercising
@Katpee, Water vapor is not steam, if you inhaled steam you would shrivel up your lungs and die.
E-cigs burn a glycerin solution (with flavor and most of the time nicotine) This is the same chemical in fog machines, and it is definitely not water vapor.
@FruitSticks, I'm not sure where to even start...water vapor IS steam, steam IS water vapor. No two ways about it. And no, inhaling steam doesn't necessarily kill you. An old remedy for stuffy sinuses is to hang your face over steaming water and drape a towel over your head so you can breathe in the steam, which helps to loosen your sinuses. You might be right about the fog machine bit I guess. And that just further underscores my point.
@Katpee, No worries I do know where to begin! It's a very common misconception! Steam is gaseous water that is above waters boiling point (100C at sea level) Water vapor is when water molecules are suspended in air, but not above boiling point. Think of clouds or the vapor that comes out of a kettle. You can Google this and find a pretty common highschool chemistry experiment that illustrates the difference. Steam is actually invisible! You can't see it! Science is cool!
@Katpee, I wasn't disagreeing with your initial point, just sharpening it. Here's a helpful video: http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=oTKmWp7ek2A
@FruitSticks, The word "steam" also applies to the mist formed when water vapor condenses in air. Like when vapor rises from a hit road after a summer rain. But yes, it is obvious that water vapor entering your lungs at 100C would be a serious problem. And if "steam"
@FruitSticks, dammit... If "steam" only applied to the invisible vapor of water above boiling temperature then I guess I would be in a real pickle! Thankfully, it has a wider definition that I'm confident most people will readily understand and no FunnyPics user will be scalding their lungs anytime soon...well, at least not because they read my comment
@Katpee, Sure it applies! Incorrectly. Anyways I'm piloting my starship so I probably shouldn't be telegraphing and driving. Good luck with science! Try not to hurt yourself!
@FruitSticks, No, it's quite correct. You should consider docking that starship at a Psychiatric facility and talking to someone about that inferiority/superiority complex. It's sure to lead to an over stimulating social life that is very unbefitting of the common internet "intellectual!" While you're in the waiting room, you might peruse a dictionary. Or ponder the subjects of syntax and semantics and how they can lead to web douchery! Anyway, good luck with English!
@Katpee, lol u mad bro?
@FruitSticks, Not even a little! I know a troll when I see one. But I wanted to be passive-aggressively snarky too! I am getting bored now, though. :/ If only I had some way to occupy myself... Maybe some humorous photographs would amuse me? If only I knew where to find some!
@Katpee, Haha yeah you were more than I expected! I'm getting bored too though, good game bro! Troll ya later!
@FruitSticks, Yep! Good game:)
Yes! Thank you! There was douchey kid blowing this stuff all around the store I work at for a good half hour while we were helping his mom and it started to smell so bad. Such a butthole.
Isn't it still technically smoke?
@El Frijolero, no, it's water vapor. As in, steam
@Katpee, Oh ok, well good thing I asked
@El Frijolero, not smoke, smoke comes from combusting things, higher temp, vaping is the process of heating it just enough that it converts to gas state, not nearly as hot, no burning
@El Frijolero, smoke comes from carbonization where everything. Burns off an item the item turns to carbon and the smoke is full of chemicals. Cigarettes are bad because fermeldahyde tar arsenic and other dangerous chemicals all vaporizers have is nicotine
@El Frijolero, don't go into a vape and be like look at all this smoke. You'll get every person in the room correcting you

E-meth you know it's good cause it's blue bîtch *jesse pink man voice*
Just curious, what are the health risks by using Hookah pens? Even with using Nicotine-free flavors? Is it worse than regular cigarettes or slightly less worse?
@BlackMarcus, I believe the chemicals in e-cigs or hookahs are still harmful :/ I dunno if it's less harmful or more...
@BlackMarcus, I actually read up on hookahs. It's like tobacco smoke diluted with water vapor. Many people think it's a safer route, but because hookah sessions are long they end up smoking the equivalent of one cigarette. It would be like drinking one can of soda in one sitting versus taking that can of soda, diluting it with one gallon of water, and drinking that gallon in one sitting.
@BlackMarcus, I just did some research for you:) it appears that smoking a hookah or hookah pen is just as dangerous as smoking a tobacco cigarette.
@purelyawesome4aguy, e-cigs are very different from hookahs, hookahs are actually worse for you than normal cigs, while e-cigs are slightly better for you than both normal and hookah smoking
@Soly95, so your saying that it's just smoking a cigarette very slowly?
@BlackMarcus, yeah hookahs still have tobacco, still combust it, if people think hookahs are safer they're wrong. Hookah is a middle eastern traditional thing you do over conversation.
@sonnyrey4L, I have bought and smoked hookah, proudly own an ecig I fill up my self, and have smoked cigs. For citation purposes. Self filling e cigs are safer than the other 2
@purelyawesome4aguy, I'm really not sure why you were downvoted 4 times for this... You freely admitted you weren't sure, which shows a good deal more maturity than what is usually seen on the interwebs... Well have an upvote!
Now if you gently waft it, thats a different story
They can gently waft a fart in your face and see if you like that.
It's funny those e-cigs are actually worse for you.
@SweetieMcsugarbombs, no, they aren't, I could explain why but you might just be trolling
I try to walk behind those people cause I like the smell
I heard that blowing smoke in someone's face meant you wanted to fvck em. Don't know how legit that is, but it sounds pretty sexy
All blown up like that for the pic it also kinda looks like a lightsaber..
*said every coworkers ever*
i have a nicotibe free one just to do smoke tricks i dont blow in anyones faces even if it is just vapor.
