I would be amused by what RWHN things about the vaping "epidemic" screeching that is now in vogue.

...and it reappears.  Which means it must have notifications turned on for its own threads, but otherwise isn't interested in this forum.  How... narcissistic.

Narcissism...I wonder if I can work with that.  This might be an interesting experiment.

It's not narcisism, it's fanaticism. His whole life is devoted to convincing the world of a bullshit position. Humans are dumb so his day to day meat and potatoes is probably pretty effortless. He just screeches "The children assets" and the person across the desk freaks out on cue and writes a cheque. However, the law of averages dictates that occasionally, he'll encounter someone who isn't so easily swayed by logical fallacies and hysterical posturing and this makes his life difficult.

So he goes back to his Nancy Reagan shrine and clears his mind by chanting "Just say no" a couple of hundred times then waits for inspiration. Most of the time Nancy is disappointingly silent and so he frets and frets that the assets are under threat but, every now and again, Nancy will speak to him. "How about you say this..."

And suddenly the scripture will be revealed to him as an epiphany - these magic words will sway the doubters. But how to test these words? "Aha," he thinks, "I know just the place!" So he comes back here and we send him back to Nancy with his tail between his legs to weep and wail and ask why she hath forsaken him all over again.

No, I don't know how to do that and don't have the patience to figure it out. I've been lurking the whole time, been mostly reading threads in Aneristic whatever it's called, but just didn't come up with anything smart to say so I just read.

Dude, I've been threatened with death in the middle of a state legislature, people have called my office (despite my office line not actually being published) and threatened.

With respect, I'm a big boy and can handle this forum.

I would be amused by what RWHN things about the vaping "epidemic" screeching that is now in vogue.

But anyway here is my answer:  the screeching is because of a cluster of hospitalizations related to vaping. The CDC is investigating them all to see if there are common links. The only thing for sure that is common is vaping was involved in all cases, but initial reports are there wasn't a common product or chemical being vaped in these cases. So I'm waiting for more information.

But at a minimum, vaping isn't safe guys. Don't let Altria try to fool you into thinking otherwise.  They know things they aren't telling you.  If you vape, yeah, it's probably some degree safer than a traditional cigarette.  But it's probably safer like jumping off the third floor is safer than jumping off the fifth.

So concerned about the uneducated and vulnerable masses that need guidance, what a hero, risking his life legislating

I'm not a legislator. Until just recently I've been barred from partisan office because of the Hatch Act. I am contemplating a run in 2020 or 2022, but who knows.

I am a pretty active public health advocate, but the incident I referred to above was after a press conference at the state house where I spoke about the need for strict regulations after legalization passed in my state.  Someone wasn't happy with me I guess.
