Mission Impossible: It's "liquid," not "joose."

    Good afternoon, dedicated vapers.

    Situation: After your successful efforts in changing the term "steeping" to "aging," command and control has confidence in your ability to accomplish the next difficult mission.

    The solutions that we have been vaporizing are liquids containing propylene glycol, vegetable glycerin, water, flavorings and liquid nicotine base. There are no plant or fruit squeezings in these aqueous solutions. However, a sinister element has usurped the proper terminology and begun a campaign to refer to these substances as "joose." We think Phil Busardo is behind this, but that is for you to ascertain.

    Your mission, vapers, should you choose to accept it, is to refrain from using the "J" word when referring to your delicious, satisfying e-liquids. Instead, use the term "liquid" or "flavor." After all, we don't want some knucklehead opening a bottle of Orange Crush and drinking the damned thing.

    As always, should you or any of fellow vapers be caught or banned, the ECF will disavow any knowledge of your actions.

    Good luck, vapers!

    Nah, juice is more fun. E-liquid is too clunky.

    How about nectar or ambrosia?

    I agree with the liquid vs. juice nomenclature. I never liked "juice" - it sounds like steroids.

    And, this is probably not popular, but I don't like "vape" or "vaper" either. I shudder every time I use one of those words. They sound so tragically-hip and trendy, like I should be sitting in a Starbucks typing out my screenplay on my Macbook while wearing a beret. But, there seems to be no suitable substitute for "vape" or "vaper", so I guess I am stuck with them. LOL.

    I really don't get why people feel the need to force others to use certain words, or not use certain words. Personally, I like the term juice and will continue to use it.

    Just liquid. Doesn't have to be e-liquid (seriously, electric liquid?). At least this time I'm on your side IBCR. :laugh:

    Yeah, I know. Didn't mean to come across as cranky.

    Not aging - maturing. And as for juice - why not? Liquid is fine, too. E-liquid is fine. "Kiddie Treats" would be a mistake imho.

    I remember when we were debating on calling it niquid...

    How about "success fluid" since we wouldn't have been able to quit smoking without it?

    It's Juice! Juicy juice! E-liquid or liquid or any of the others just doesn't sound right for me.
    Don't like "vape" either. I'll usually take a puff or a hit, or a smoke...yes, I know it's not smoke but take a vape just sounds odd, not to mention having to explain it if someone doesn't understand.
    Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm off to check on my steeping juices :D

    Couple of fast facts:
    1)I still call it steeping. Aging is also incorrect as it takes differing lengths of time/temperature/mixing to fully Blend a juice.
    2) organic E-liquid Flavorings from Fruits -
    3) I don't mess with Bucky :D

    Personally, I really hate the term 'juice'. It sounds cheap and sleazy. Emphasis on the 'sleazy' lowlife, borderline illegal images.

    'Liquid' or 'flavour' are fine.

    Before the term got ripped and turned into a brand name, I used the term nicquid. now, I use the term syzurp. Hip, funky and ambiguous. :D

    I, also, share your opinion. I always refer to it as "liquid". Maybe "colloid" is more fitting. "I vaped my Slartibartfast colloid in my Kayfun on my Atmizoo Dingo".

    I'm probably wrong about the colloid thing.

    After my wife and I started Vaping, i showed her a PBusardo you-tube video, and now she walks around yelling "honey!? Can i taste your joose?!

    So in my house its Joose ;-)

    Nectar's a great idea.

    Liquid's too broad. E-liquid's lame. Flavor's potentially confusing; DIYers use flavors to make our nectar, after all. And juice???

    ... Actually I don't mind juice. ;)

    When I'm in/with the community (which for me right now is pretty much here or at my B&M) I call it juice. Insider jargon has its place. But with anyone else, or when I'm writing advocacy letters, I've been calling it e-liquid. Perhaps after this, I'll call it simply liquid. (Though I do like the term "ambrosia"! :laugh:)
