    Lost income of 48K in less than three months? Wow, just wow. Sounds like you can afford a great attorney. Sorry about your job loss. As others have said, the atomizer does produce enough heat to vaporize PG/VG. I wouldn't fill my car's gas tank while vaping. I think highly unlikely to produce an explosion or fire ... but, why risk it?

    1. He is a Union Rep

    It sounds like it may fall under the whistle-blower act.
    I have to agree with this.

    I'm not sure who asked you the actual polygraph questions, but to me they sound as if they were geared to show that the Captain holds a grudge against the Union, and you also as a result of your participation in it.

    The questions/answers clearly show the Captain (and the GW to a lesser degree) retaliating against you by getting you fired.

    There's your defense. Run with it.

    Sorry Taketheredpill, contrary to popular belief, Oxygen is not flamable. The "Flamability Limits" (FL) of oxygen (O2) and air (N 72% + O2 21%) are roughly the same. Oxygen is nothing more than a component in combustion, A fuel for combustion so to speak. Without Oxygen or the molecular components in oxygen present, combustion cannot happen. Just FYI.

    Just as a footnote to those who don't believe an e-cig can be a flammable device, I was dry burning my Bulli A2 tonight and at several points the vapour flashed into flame.

    Here's a video of someone doing the same:

    This is a true and indisputable (it is a large part of my job) However it is combustible and the general public can not distinguish so we allow them to say flamable to prevent overly safe feeling when using oxygen. If you smoke while wearing oxygen and a petroleum based lubricant (vaseline) the oxygen will not burn but it will help the "flame" from the ciggy or ligther grow to reach the vaseline and vaseline and flesh are flamable. NOT PRETTY. I do understand your point but a small allowance of ignorance is sometimes ok. As they say Ignorance is bliss.

    anything on the outcome yet? I'm told we can't smoke these at work except the smoke filled ciggy lounge- it's like a pool hall with no ventilation some days!
