I was making up a personal WTA batch this weekend, and I got thinking about about my blog entries over the past year and a half or so, and I got inclined to give them a re-read.
I don't know if I fully agree with everything I've had to say (well, actually, I don't), but overall, I'm not too embarrassed by anything I've posted. I think my tendency toward looking for precision made it's way into a good number of my entries, though I'm not so caught up these days with the idea of trying to give folks "exacting advice" on such topics as e-cig vs analog nicotine equivalency as I might have been in past entries.
I think these entries represent a chronological journey from from "Yes, ecigs deliver the nicotine, DAMMIT!", then onto "Nicotine is over-rated, let's talk about whole tobacco alkaloids", all the while mixing in the occasional shamelessly self-indulgent entry along with the mind-numbingly geekish experimentation type entries, and of course regular plugs for Swedish snus (You degenerates! You all know who you are over there in "what's under yer lip"... ). I'm always a bit squeamish when someone points someone else to one of my entries since, on their own, they each represent a slice of time and my effort toward understanding whatever I was trying to understand at that particular moment.
So by now, if you're still reading, you're thinking, "Great, another shamelessly self-indulgent entry", and probably with good reason.
I keep thinking I'm gonna come up with something new that nobody has thought of yet, and it's been long enough without coming up with something new that I'm starting to think I've done about all I can short of going into full-time research, but we all know how much money
is out thereisn't out there for folks who want to research on how tobacco-related products AREN'T horrible sinful things, so I'll keep the day job.
So happy vaping, happy snus'ing, happy snuff'ing up yer nose, and if you've figured out anywhere else to stick your favorite product, I don't wanna know about it.
