I'd want to make the mod from the ground up, atty, coils and even the juice! for that all encompassing aahhh feeling, now that's daft.
Hi gently - you have great skills and talent and unlike many people you utilise them - I admire the things you make - you and Bob with his pipes and tattoo gun [Image: smile.gif]and Don's knowledge of batteries - and other things - make you all a huge credit to the forum. The prompt  response to my wicking question is a great example of how wonderful this forum really is - and I just cannot leave out TW's sense of humour - it brightens up the day[Image: smile.gif].

That's it? All my knowledge of vaping, and all the advice I dispense... You go and credit everyone about their mad skillz and all I get is a red nose and big shoes? You cut me deep there, man!

RE: Today I learned...
I have said this before. Thee is something pure about using a mech with an RDA. Even a potentiometer vv regulated does it for me. As much as i appreciate the slew of new and better egualted mods out there I keep going back to my mechs and vv mods. My next purchase might even be an e-ray. This before a DNA200 or the new Sigelei 213.

Now Mike makes amazing coils. I have used many of his builds and only had user created issues once (well, i'm not perfect just close). I like this forum. I get a ton of useful information here. Of course, I then ignore it and continue to vape with too much wattage! I am relatively knowledgeable when it comes to mods, RDAs and batteries. I know my ohm's law. I know what is safe and what is borderline. I started vaping when things were quite oprimitive comapred today and that is probably why I have a fondness for mods WITHOUT screens.  I don't need TC. I don't need to know exactly how many watts I'm vaping at - although with a volt reader I'm able to get a prety darn accurate idea and with a mech I know wjhen my battery is draining - experience is what it is about.

And Ecig - I have no sense of humour at all. I'm a serious old fuck. The only cracks i have are up my back end. I guess you must be referring to others. And Tin - drink less your nose will not be as red. And that comb over - well ... I don't get any credit either - just jibes. Look at us - only 3 rep points each after all we have contributed, lol. Feel better now Tin?

Hi TW - You have helped me a lot over the past year - your knowledge does not need mentioned - it is well known by all and appreciated a great deal but your sense of humour really makes you something special to this forum and that is why I mentioned it as an entity all of its own. Humour is very important to any forum - you are the spark that ignites a lot of it[Image: smile.gif].

RE: You are older than you think...
17 REAL AGE

Just like a chicken, your life started off with an egg. Not a chunky thing in a shell, but an egg nonetheless. However, there is a significant difference between a human egg and a chicken egg that has a surprising effect on your age. Human eggs are tiny. They are, after all, just a single cell and are typically around 0.2mm across – about the size of a printed full stop. Your egg was formed in your mother – but the surprising thing is that it was formed when she was an embryo. The formation of your egg, and the half of your DNA that came from your mother, could be considered as the very first moment of your existence. And it happened before your mother was born. Say your mother was 30 when she had you, then on your 18th birthday you were arguably over 48 years old.


This is a Happy Easter egg fact!

Juice making is waaaaay easier than mod making. I have in my hands the evidence that you can do the second....

RE: Today I learned...
In response to Spas, I usually go the other way with it, I'm a tad paranoid after having too many bad BAD dry hits, that now I overfill everything. So my problem is juice dripping down the side of my mod or splattering out burning my hands, not dry hits Tongue this tends to be especially the case when I'm playing video games or watching movies, I get so involved in whatever I'm doing that my vaping becomes habitual automatic behavior, and I can't even count how many times I've dripped, then gotten involved in the game, then dripped again without even taking a puff and suddenly there's juice everywhere. 

Also, TW be happy you got your shout out, I didn't even get honorable mention! Tongue

RE: Today I learned...
Today I learned that on April 1, 1996, Taco Bell ran full-page ads in several newspapers claiming that they had purchased the Liberty Bell to help the nation's debt problem, and renamed it the Taco Liberty Bell. When asked about the sale, White House press secretary Mike McCurry replied that the Lincoln Memorial had also been sold, and renamed the Ford Lincoln Mercury Memorial. 

Happy April Fool's Day, folks!

RE: Today I learned...
TDIL, That need of a nicotine fix is a great motivator for making good coils. Was out working in the yard and came in for lunch. I hadn't had a vape in about 3 hours. Well decided my RDA needed to be rewicked. Messed up a coil and dummy me didn't have spares so had to build a set. Long story short they came out great Smile and man that first vape was sweet lol

Keep Calm and Vape On!

TDIL that we have a surprising number of left-handed folks here.
