    I'm sorry, but I don't see any "%20," and my attempts to delete "%" led to no valid URL.

    How about this, just delete the asterisks: http:**//tobacco**.ucsf.**edu/%E2%80%9Csuper-high%E2%80%9D-nicotine-youth-appealing-electronic-cigarette-flavors

    I'm assuming different browsers might read it differently, now that you mention it..

    Here are flavors (selectively chosen by me, out of dozens) that Glantz et. al take issue with (noted in linked piece):

    - Vanilla
    - Cola
    - Banana Nut Bread
    - Blueberry Cobbler
    - Vanilla Mocha Frappe
    - Cinnamon Roll
    - Watermelon
    - Strawberry Kiwi

    All of these deemed youth appealing flavors (with high nic).

    I post this because as I think we all agree it is not the cotton candy, gummy bears and gum ball flavors that they seek to exploit on this flavor tangent. Instead, it is all possible sweet flavors, and yet they also include Pizza.

    I look forward to colliding with ANTZ on this issue. Admittedly they may get a hail mary pass that puts them in the red zone, but pretty sure they will fumble and our side will return it for a touch down.

    Vanilla mocha frappe?? Yeah, I can see children lining up around the block for that one most kids I know can't even pronounce that...

    The flavors thing always sounded like hocus pocus to me. It's just something they pulled out of thin air (or their derriere) to support their draconian prohibition efforts.

    *I* can't even pronounce these fancy smantzy names!

    This whole flavor=kids=gateway argument is for the intellectually vacant masses who have either totally atrophied brains, or have maliciously deactivated their ability to think like a human over the age of 4 years old.

    The so-called "logic" immediately fails with people who give it 30 seconds of thought.

    But that is, in and of itself the problem: far too many people in this day & age do NOT want to have to think! Provide them with emotion laden buzzwords and they are satisfied.

    The moment you ask for proof, or the basis of such moronic, childish assertions, they 'fumble' and stumble.

    And as long as we don't play the field like the Detroit Lions (note my location!), we should be able to do exactly what Jman predicts: recover the ball, spike it over the goal posts (even with the penalty on the ensuing kick-off), and do everything in our power to humiliate them.

    You mean the Bears?

    Or wait, I think you meant ANTZ.

    For anyone having trouble with the link, here's an easier way to post a broken link. You can copy and paste into your browser without problems if you highlight the whole link first:

    tobacco.
    ucsf.
    edu/%E2%80%9Csuper-high%E2%80%9D-nicotine-youth-appealing-electronic-cigarette-flavors

    (if there's a "www", just delete that along with any http or https)

    Of course, the brilliant folks at UCSF put quote marks in the URL as well (which explains all the nonsense there in part of it)...practically a mortal sin

    This:

    "This volume of concentrated nicotine is sufficient to kill a sizable number of kindergartners."



    Shock value anyone?

    At least they managed to write a legible sentence there, unlike the article title...
