Starting with a fresh design of Barklyn reading from yours truly in an Art Deco style. Then there’s the invaluable Divergent Mind: Insanity and Innovation First Episode Shirt, showing people that you are indeed the first and foremost Divergent Mind of the group.
Merch is on shirts, buttons, hoodies, dogs bandanas, and a variety of other things that will make your day, and if you go to anchor.fm/DivergentMind/message and leave me something fun to hear like a suggestion on art or a scene you’d like drawn let me know, and I’ll try to get it up on the store asap. I’m here for you all. Have a wonderful day and night, -J.
While I was in Arizona looking after my ailing mother I took to vaping for a few days—nothing serious, or even nicotine based, but what I did do was look up the ingredients that got to sub 4 pt font on the labels as used in the materials and what I came away with surprised me.
They use plastic flexing material chemicals in non nicotine liquids to make it go down smoothly. If I had the names of the brands with me I would post them all—but I don’t as I had to throw them out as I got on the flight and they don’t allow non removable batteries on the their any longer after the Samsung fiasco.
I mean for the real stuff, nicotine based or otherwise, use resins and other chemicals, and if you ever talk to someone who’s worked on surfboards back a few decades ago before safety regulations were as stringent as they are today—if they’re even here, they’ll tell you it was the resin dust that destroyed their lungs.
It’s not hard to find out what’s in the stuff you’re putting in your body, but I’ll admit vaping is relaxing—like hookah without the guilt, though hookah is like smoking a pack a day every 20-30 minutes or so, or so I’ve heard.
Just be careful folks, read your labels, and look after each other—and if you see one of your friends vaping and care about them, ask them to look into what’s in the materials list and if literally look it all up and you’ll probably never want to vape again.
