    Silly question for those who'd like to see mechs taken off the shelves. The scissors in your house, pointy or rounded safety scissors? If they're pointy, shut up.

    That's one reason I've got a nice little bunch that don't get used. They will be near mint when they need to be.

    And us "usual suspects" with our mechanicals and stockpiles are going to weather that storm much easier.

    And since mechanicals are only as dangerous as the user is uninformed I feel quite warm and snuggly in my vape future.

    I hope the FDA wasn't around when this happened. More fuel to protect the stupid by denying everyone their freedom.

    wanna know what I saw on YouTube? Guys kicking each other in the nads. And riding shopping carts off if mom's roof. They also shot each other in the face with fireworks.

    so let's do that too.

    sounds snotty, but when you put the internet in perspective, those asking the question back down and are prepared to listen. If not, walk on. There is nothing you can tell them as they think they know better.

    So you think the FDA will ban flashlights?
    ;)
    'Cuz that's all a mechanical mod is.

    Good luck with that.

    Yeah... I'm not a really a Mech Mod user. Although I do from time to time as a Change of Pace. I recently bought 2 More just incase.

    Nope. Don't see any Flashlight Bans on the Horizon.

    But I think Mech Mods are going to be Very Difficult to sell in a Regulated Market.

    Possibly.

    But rest assured mechanicals aren't going anywhere.
    The genie isn't going back in the bottle. Those days are gone.
    I think people are about done giving up freedoms to protect the dumb.

    The REO is a mech mod. The TMod is a mech mod. Sunbox makes some mech mods. The bottom feeder community is chock full of mech mods and very limited on decent regulated mods. I've had all of them and never so much as a warm battery. I actually destroy things for a living...it just comes naturally. Call it a gift. I have a laymans understanding of how things work. I didn't attend any electrical engineering classes to run any of my mods. If these things are that far over someones head, well then, mods aren't the problem. All the information needed to run any of our devices is extremely easily obtained. If you're too lazy to find out how to safely operate an electrial device that you put in your mouth, why is it me who has to pay the price? These threads are more entertaining than the old ProVari threads. It's how I figure out who I could sit in a bar and watch a game with.:lol:


    I'd definitely sit in a bar and watch a musician with Zoid. Dude has great taste in guitarists!

    Possibly?

    Are we talking about the same FDA that this Forum has 1,000's and 1,000's of Threads say'n how the FDA is out to get us? And the same FDA who tried to Ban All e-Cigarettes back in 2009? That FDA?

    Don't really Care about Genies in Bottles. Just saying that I think it is kinda Silly to think that the FDA would allow Mech Mods to be Sold.

    This was what I was thinking last night, at what point to we stop trying to protect adults like they're babies? People are killed in droves while driving, are automobiles so inherently dangerous we should ban them?

    Extreme sports (sky diving, rock climbing, scuba diving) are all dangerous unless you're very well trained and even then it's only risk minimization because even professionals get hurt or killed. Ban them?

    At what point as a society do we say enough is enough, life is dangerous and we can't possibly baby proof it to the point that everyone is always safe with no chance of injury.

    I prefer to use mine; that way I'm intimately familiar with what maintenance they require and what spare parts I might need to stock.

    Except you can't vape in a bar in Commiefornia, where Zoid lives, right?

    Oh I use mine every day and the ones sitting up are identical. And since they are all Reo's and I have plenty of spare parts for them I'm good.

    My SL is my main backup to my Polished Aluminum, and the Woodvil is just waiting cause it's just to damn pretty to use daily. :)
