    Well J5, I always looked at this beautiful home where our dear friends reside as the goal of the day, much more like a reward, then at one point I felt like I was just killing threads and conversation, then both worlds collided. I needed a different train of thought on both fronts. This IKV family is where I love to be and my family is where I love to be. My kiddies and missus I make certain to have time for at the end of the day. Basically I Take that time, so why treat our home as an accomplishment and not just Take that time? Know what I mean?

    Welcome back Wharf!! Nice break, eh??


    I missed Issac!!! How are you buddy? You didn't answer my question about rebuildables. If you design one it will be the ultimate!!!

    5C I sure hope you get your patch OFF soon! Best of luck (and prayers your way) with that.
    I'm sorry Pizza! I mulled this over for more than a year! At this point I think I am procrastinating. It's mainly all the in depth support of the concept and the fact that I can't see the logic in it. I have a good amount of RBA devices here along with a few different type of coils and mesh to sell but by the time I'm blow torching one for preparation I think to myself, why? Toss a carto in a tank, fill and done. I have to get out of this concept of mind and focus on "it's because people want to do this" tinkering is fun but I can't comply with putting people through it. When I present a tank or feeding device I already get uncomfortable eyes from people. I don't know. I won't give up on you Pizza!

    Luckily (relatively) the original break was a disaster. Pretty much shattered the talus. So the rebreak isn't nearly as bad. First time around it was something like 7 or 8 weeks in a wheelchair - which the amplitude of suck was 10x worse living in a split level where the bathroom was down 2 flights of stairs & the rest of the living area was upstairs. I have EMT-B training, so I knew right away what was going on with it - I just hairlined a couple of the old breaks that didn't heal right. I skipped the pricey pictures for them to tell me what I already know & dug out the walking cast & cane instead. Downside... no good pills .

    I never tried out Amazon Prime, the Hulu commercials drive me insane & NetFlix is already paid for... even though they keep making their service worse with unnecessary 'upgrades' & new features. Oh well, I've got about 200 things saved to my 'To Watch' list, so I'm keeping myself busy between naps.
    Are you kidding? The 8er's are the greatest of all time.! Man Oz! Your a trooper buddy! I can't imagine what those weeks had to feel like! And to fix it up yourself is amazing. Good for you man.

    I use prime for shopping more or less. The prices for common everyday things are unimaginable plus free 2 day shipping without the hassles of leaving the house and the bonus of free movies **this ad has been brought to by Amazon **

    Check out Better often on Netflix hilarious quirky sitcom that got cancelled by timing negligence on ABCs part.

    Yes sir! You are not crazy lol less difference traveled. A few awesome customers were telling us about the new mini cartomizers. We started working on them. I can't wait for the prototypes!

    Jesus Johnny! That's a hell of a life! Thankfully I never broke anything. In 06 I got 4 of my tenants sliced in my hand and had to get then fused back together, through out my life I had about maybe a dozen stitches consecutively but again nothing to you guys!

    I managed to destroy my tibia twice in four months. Lotsa hardware packed into one bone and I haven't walked since 10/6/2013.

    Even then, there is no way I would want a broken ankle!!!
    lol I had to look that one up! And I'm 99% sure that you weren't talking about an online massive free multiplayer! God that had to be painful. How did ya do it Mad?

    Isaac You Are THE MAN and we all love you dearly.

    To that I add it's always a special time when you're here and I could't imagine you killing a thread. I used to think I did because if you look most days they all end with my post but I got over that.
    Thank you for the good thoughts about today but it's an easy procedure. My brother had his tendons sliced one time by running his hand through a window. Bad Idea.

    That is good to hear. The 35mm platinums are just amazing.

    These minis wouldn't happen to be about 19.8mm tall would they? They would fit IBTanked's hafling tube nicely if they were... haha

    There's Isaac!! Undersood buddy. Nothing like slapping it in a tank. Fill-n-go!!! And you are the master at it. Somebody said Find one thing (things in this case) you love and do well and still with that and you will succeed. This is you brother!!!

    This is the day for horror stories, eh? Hope you feel better soon Oz And 5C!!!

    Here's mine... Hit my head in the bottom of a concrete pool at 11 or 12. Fractured 3 vertabrae. Thank GOD I'm moving and walking today. I called my mom to take me home just because my head hurt so bad and for some reason she just had a feeling. Had me lay in the back seat and took me to hospital. God was guiding her.

    Anyway, the pain wasn't so bad. But, imagine this.. First, an almost teen flat on a hospital bed for 10 days not able to move for nothing. then it got worse!. I grew up in MO. Anybody have a clue of the heat and humidity there? In the mid to end of summer I was in a hard body cast from my waste to the top of the back of my head. Ugh!! And can you imagin how I smelled? I can still remember my grandma filling up my cast with baby powder or something. Everytime I moved puffs of clouds came out.

    Now for the painful one, about 10 years back I broke my sternum in a car wreck. painful, but livable... kind of like broken ribs. Then I got bronchitus Now that was miserable!!!! Deep hacking coughs.....busted that pain right out to unbearable. Nothing helped except a bottle.


    I broke a fingernail once too!!! But guys don't complain about that.

    I sure hope you guys get well soon.

    Yes sir they are and yes sir they would. A good amount of folks also use them for dripping. So that means we would probably have to start with 4 variations of it. I'm thinking after the next batch arrives in about a week which should have the prortypes on board. We can open pre-orders as the good guys said on the other thread a short while ago. The issue is that Corecommrce's platform doesn't carry this feature. So I was thinking on making a category on the site labeled PRE-ORDER and copy and pasting product listings into them. It's the general idea at least. I just have to think it through a little more so we don't get too confused or cause slowdowns.

    Hey buddy! Right! but again there is still a market for it. I wish I had that business mindset. It just comes down to I have to have belief in the type of product to endorse it. Haha Good quote btw! I tell customers that all the time and encourage them not to buy needless stuff to experiment on once they find their saving grace. But the human mind is always on the grass could be greener on other side. Which can be true as life is all about risk, but sometimes it just feels right to try and halt the inevitable rotation

    lol Thank you so much J5! Used to happen all the time, I felt like a swinging Grim reaper, then I started begging Val to come on because she seemed to keep everything flowing much smoother. She loves you guys so much but isn't big on posting. I'm pretty sure it is insecurity. It can get very self conscience when you take into account that when you post your posting to everyone plus how many silent readers there are. Before, I would constantly go back and edit a post before posting it about atleast a dozen times. Now I just let it fly without going back regardless of how idiotic it comes out I have been thinking about retrying videos allot lately. It's hard to pace because my mind is always racing faster than my mouth which leads to self consciousness

    Ouch!! Haha glad to report mine wasn't from hitting something. It was protecting a lass, We were out one night in line at the movies when this guy and girlfriend were fighting a few from us. they were screaming at eachother and he struck her across her face and reached back to his pocket. Something ignited in my mind to pull this girl away NOW. I reached out from behind her and grasped onto her face to pull her back and in the same motion he pulled out a knife and took a downward swipe making contact with the back of my hand. I swung my arm back with girl in hand let her go cocked back for a good punch. The slice was pretty bad so as I clenched the blood shot right out into his face and when he shut his eyes he went down pretty quick. Next thing I know someone is grabbing is armed hand while I'm pushed back to go to the hospital. I didn't feel anything because the adrenaline was pumping so hard. I started looking for photos but can't find them! I did find an OLD myspace account just now and wow.

    If you are looking for a home on ECF or in this vaping world, you have the greatest family right here!.
