Baphomet68 (Minneapolis Anarchist)

I can get pretty worked up over things. I am the kind of guy who can start yelling at the T.V. when I see something that provokes a sufficiently strong emotion. I avoid newspapers and news programs, unless they share my personal bias/politics - in part, to avoid embarrassing myself publicly when struck by a fit of pique. As I read through threads sometimes, I can find myself getting "into a right state"; I can get in a snit, irritated, right on up the scale to ripsh*# irate.
I do not post replies, at least not emotional ones, when I have something other than kind words (perhaps "try not to" would be more honest). I try very hard, in my "analog" life, to speak kindly or not at all. Of course, I am nowhere near perfect in this attempt, but I am genuine in my effort, & have experienced pretty much consistent progress and improvement over the years since it became a goal.
With writing, it is much easier to exercise control and restraint in how you communicate. Treating others respectfully is a way to respect myself; but it is not the easiest thing in the world to live with. Just because I do not respond does not mean I do not have something critical to say - or that I can resist thinking about it. Some of the subjects that irritate, persist; wearing away at me, bugging me, as though they have set up an impromptu protest inside my mental real estate.
So, when I noticed I could run a Blog here, I thought that I could use it, in addition to chronicling whatever vape-related stuff I am doing, to could write about issues from the Forum that "got me worked up". So that if I just will not "get over it", I can wring out whatever it is and spill it all over my Blog. So at the very least, whoever reads it does so, well, more deliberately.

  1. Broke my primary, lost my backup, built the Low Cost Mod....And it rocks!!!!

    Last week I read a cool post about a Low Cost Mod (LCM).

    So I broke my primary Mod last week, then lost my backup on Fri while walking the dogs in (hopefully the seasons last) snowfall. By the time I know for certain I have lost it, it is too late to run out and replace it - and I am too tight to really want to, if I can avoid it. I just recently read the LCM Update ...
  2. Essential Depot order

    Just rec'd 1 gal each PG, VG from Essential Depot - 54$ incl. shipping. Ordered on friday, rec'd on monday here in MN. So far I have only had tried of the stuff in a 50/50 VG/PG unflavored nic mix i threw together last night, and some PG straight. I am impressed with E.D. product. Dripped a bit of the PG straight, minimal musty flavor. I do not notice the musty note in the 50/50 mix at all.
  3. Anticipation, advice on WTA purchase

    Waiting for my WTA, still very excited. I ordered from Wholecig; if you are considering the same thing, I have some suggestions. Set your account up first! Register yourself with their site, prior to placing your first order. I registered as part of my checkout process: MISTAKE! Now, of course, it works - sort of - I did get registered, and I placed my order. But the process did not link the two operations - I set up an account/login with the site, & I placed an order, but the order is not tagged ...
  4. WTA on the way - hooray!

    by , 03-06-2014 at 12:27 AM (Baphomet68 (Minneapolis Anarchist))
    Yesterday evening I ordered 30ml of 25mg/ml strength unflavored from wholecig - it will be my first taste of this awesome product. Excited, I am impatient for it to arrive, feel like a little kid greedily anticipating Christmas mornings' loot. Been relapsing w/cigs here and there from stress & anxiety since Thanksgiving, and sort of stumbled across WTA while looking into other ways to address the issue (I was doing searches for compounding, or assembling, a selection of minor tobacco alkaloids ...
