  3. Life is short, break the rules, forgive quickly, kiss slowly, love truly, laugh uncontrollably, live passionately and never regret anything that made you smile.
    “Hardship in our present life is an atonement for sins committed in our previous existence, or the education necessary to prepare for a higher place in the life to come.?
    For those of us born as samurai, life is something else. We know the path of duty and we follow it without question. But even that may not be easy because there may be insurmountable obstacles. Such as what that blind beggar faces. He might have a secret dream of revenge against an oppressor too. He might have justice on his side as we do now, but there is nothing he can do about it. I say we're lucky-we know what has to be done and it's within out capability to make it happen!

    Criticizing somebody will never change him/her; loving somebody changes the person
    Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment
    When a man finds no peace within himself, it is useless to seek it elsewhere
    Style is knowing who you are, what you want to say, and not giving a damn
    You cannot escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today
    Life may not be the party we hoped for... but while we are here we might as well dance
    All of us have something in our past that we regret doing?it may have been an honest mistake or a foolish decision?while the past remains part of our lives; it doesn’t have to determine our future. It’s better to look ahead and prepare than to look back and despair.

  4. ¦(To Byakuya Kuchiki) "Fear can be overcome through experience. Those who know battle often come to believe this. 'Fear that comes from reason' is kind. It can be conquered through force of will or through experience. It is possible to suppress such reasoned fear by severing it at its source. But true fear is without reason. It is not an emotion, but an instinct. True fear occurs without reason, without bounds. It is like a swarm of insects crawling up the body. We cannot escape from our instincts."[9]
    ¦(To Rukia Kuchiki) "All human beings have things that cause them to feel comfort, and things that cause them to feel fear. When they enter a place that causes them comfort, if questioned as to why they feel comfortable there, they cannot form a clear answer, merely saying things such as 'because I do'. But when they enter a place that causes them fear, even the dullest of fools can identify the causes of that fear. Darkness, cold, height, confinement, pain, contamination. People can list any number of reasons to be afraid. This is because at the most fundamental level, 'comfort' leads to 'life', whilst 'fear' leads to 'death'. While people cannot give a clear answer why they want to live, they can give any number of answers why they do not wish to die. This does not only apply to sentient beings with emotions. It is in the nature of all life to avoid death, and therefore, to avoid 'fear'. All living beings go through life for the purpose of evading fear. It is to better escape fear that they train themselves. It is to better escape fear that they grow and evolve. Thus, it is impossible to be unaffected by fear as long as you are alive."[54]
    ¦"Fear. The power of fear. Is this the power of fear? NO. This is not fear. This does not even approach fear. My only fear is to be rebuked by His Majesty! To be rebuked by His Majesty and have all of this body taken from me! Compared to such terror, mere battle can hold no fear, no pain, nothing!"[55]
    ¦(To Byakuya Kuchiki) "I will not kill you. I will not kill you. I will not kill you! Under no circumstances will I bring about your death! I will not allow you to lose consciousness or even your sanity! I will submerge you in an ocean of pain and fear, and cause you to live out an eternity wishing for the bliss of death!"[56]
    ¦(While in the hospital) "I'm not dead yet. Breathing is such a painful act. To think that it is impossible to live without suffering this pain constantly... Life is such an inconvenient state. I was taught that after death, we either go to heaven or to hell. Perhaps in heaven, it is not painful to breathe. Perhaps in heaven, my body and my head would not ache so. That would be nice. And hell...is there even more pain there than I am feeling right now? If so, that's a little frightening. I don’t want to go there. I'm scared. I'm afraid. I don't want to go to hell."[57]
    ¦(Dying thoughts) "Your Majesty... I'm scared. Am I going to die? Will I go to hell? Forgive me, Your Majesty. Don't be angry. I'm scared. I don't want any more pain. I'm scared of the pain. I'm scared, so scared, so scared, so scared, so scared, so scared, so afraid. So afr-"[58]

    "Those who have great power must know how to control their own power, and sometimes be controlled by that power. In order to truly create such a relationship, it is necessary to have a strong heart that keeps you away from becoming overconfident."
    You seem to be having difficulty grasping the nature of the ability I possess. Each of the Espada holds dominion over a different form of death. The ten different paths that can lead a human to death. This is reflected in their individual abilities, their ideologies, and forms the basis of their existence. Isolation. Sacrifice. Emptiness. Despair. Destruction. Intoxication. Insanity. Avarice. Rage. And the form of death over which I hold dominion is 'age'. 'Age', that is to say, 'time'. The greatest, and most absolute form. The death that inevitably awaits all things

    Good government never depends upon laws, but upon the personal qualities of those who govern. The machinery of government is always subordinate to the will of those who administer that machinery. The most important element of government, therefore, is the method of choosing leaders.
    Law and Governance The Spacing Guild Manual
    Most civilization is based on cowardice. It's so easy to civilize by teaching cowardice. You water down the standards which would lead to bravery. You restrain the will. You regulate the appetites. You fence in the horizons. You make a law for every movement. You deny the existence of chaos. You teach even the children to breathe slowly. You tame.

    -----------------------------
    Just to make sure everybody understands the difference between C and A
    "A" is pretty simple it means amp so when you read the specs of a battery and see something like:
    Max. continuous discharge rate: 15A
    You know that the amp limit is 15 amps.
    However if you see something like:
    max. continuous discharge rate: 15C
    This is not the amp limit of the battery, it is its "c rating". Now, you can figure out the amp limit of a battery by using the C rating pretty simply by doing some math: (C rating x mAh) / 1000 = amp limit or more simply C rating x Ah = Amp limit
    So we can figure out that a 1100 mAh battery like this one with a C rating of 8C has an amp limit of 8.8 amps:
    8C x 1100 mAh = 8 800
    8800 / 1000 = 8.8 <- this is the amp limit
    Note that it is only a coincidence that the C rating and amp limit of this perticular battery have almost the same value.
    If we take a 700 mAh battery that as a C rating of 10 then:
    10C x 700mAh = 7000
    7000 / 1000 = 7 amps
    -------------------------------------
    ok lets do it this way
    Using this tool Ohm's Law Calculator
    on my gripper Mech I use an EFest 18350 battery (rated for 6.4 Amos by your chart)
    If I put a 1.5 ohm coil on it
    and a fully charged battery 4.2 volts
    I put the ohms in the resistance line of the calculator 1.5
    I put the 4.2 in the voltage line
    Then hit the calculate button it tells me the current requirement is 2.8 Amps
    the batterys have a 6.4 limit so 2.8 is fine with a little margin for safety
    Now if I was to do a .5 ohm coil on the same battery and mech I would end up with an 8.4 Amp requirement which this battery can't even pretend to handle and probably major venting/explosive results

    I came across this, written by Manu, it really helps clarify things for anyone trying to gauge a mech mod and how it performs and if after modding it you have a better device.

    MANU, 06/02/2013, 1:27 PM:
    A lower atomizer resistance translates into higher current = more power = more vapour. However, the higher the current, the higher the voltage drop on the internal battery resistance and mod resistance.
    Remember that voltage drops at high currents cannot be completely eliminated. The presence of voltage drop only means that the efficiency is decreased. With lower resistance coils, the power on the atomizer increases, but a higher percentage of it is lost on the way.
    Let’s get to an example:
    [Joe]
    Joe has an 18500 non-IMR battery. He vapes with an RBA that has a 1.2 Ohm coil. His battery is fully charged, so he decides to measure the voltage drop of his Roller.
    Joe measures the battery voltage at open-circuit, and finds it to be 4.2 Volts.
    Then, Joe measures the voltage across the atomizer terminals under load, and finds it to be 3.79 Volts. He assumes that his mod is giving him a voltage drop of 0.41 Volts and frowns unhappily. He is convinced that his mod is not giving him a good hit, although it vapes like a train.
    [Jay]
    Jay has a fresh 18500 IMR battery. He vapes with an RBA that has a 2.2 Ohm coil. His battery is fully charged, so he decides to measure the voltage drop of his Roller.
    Jay measures the battery voltage at open-circuit, and finds it to be 4.2 Volts.
    Then, Jay measures the voltage across the atomizer terminals under load, and finds it to be 4.02 Volts. He assumes that his Roller is giving him a voltage drop of 0.18 Volts and goes on to say how amazing it is and how great it vapes.
    One minor detail I forgot to mention is that Joe sold his Roller to Jay because of the “voltage drop issue”, so it’s the *same* device.
    On to the explanation:
    The voltage across a resistance is given by the rather simplified formula V = I * R, where I is the current supplied by the battery and R the resistance we are examining.
    The current I flowing through a mod is roughly equal to: I = Voc / ( Ra + Rm + Ri ), where Voc is the open circuit voltage of the battery, Rm is the equivalent mod resistance, Ri is the internal battery resistance and Ra is the atomizer resistance.
    A typical value for Ri would be around 0.08 Ohms for a non-IMR battery that is in *OK* condition, while a newer, larger capacity, non stressed, high-drain battery might be better. Take this value with a grain of salt, since each battery is different.
    Now, the mod’s equivalent resistance is again not a static quantity, since it depends on how tight the different components are screwed, how clean they are, and many other variable factors. A typical equivalent value would be around 0.05 Ohms, perhaps even less.
    So, with the same mod (Rm = 0.05) in the same condition and configuration, Joe was vaping at a current of:
    I_joe = 4.2 / (0.08 + 0.05 + 1.2) = 3.16 Amps,
    which gives an atomizer voltage of
    Va_joe = 3.16 * 1.2 = 3.79 Volts.
    In the case of Jay, these values were:
    I_jay = 4.2 / (0.05 + 0.05 + 2.2) = 1.83 Amps
    Va_jay = 1.83 * 2.2 = 4.02 Volts
    So – the voltage drop says nothing. In fact, Joe’s kit was putting out many more watts than Jay’s, because of the low atomizer resistance. Joe was vaping at:
    P_joe = Va_joe * I_joe = 3.16 * 3.79 = 12 Watts
    while Jay is vaping at:
    P_jay = Va_jay * I_jay = 1.83 * 4.02 = 7.36 Watts
    Bottom line:
    If you want to vape with a low resistance coil, the best thing to do in order to maximize efficiency is to use a high-drain, high-energy battery (18500/18650 IMR).
    If Joe had a good IMR battery, his current and voltage would be:
    I_joe’ = 4.2 / (0.04 + 0.05 + 1.2) = 3.26 Amps,
    which would give an atomizer voltage of
    Va_joe’ = 3.16 * 1.2 = 3.91 Volts
    and a power of
    P_joe’ = 12.73 Watts,
    which is much better than the 3.79 Volts and 12 Watts he got with the non-IMR battery.
