Phthalates are causing issues with vaping.

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.

Hope I helped a little.

Hoping for you all.

80-some bits of music made on an iOS device in the last year and a bit. Piano. Black Keys. All Improvised.

So I’ve been trying to think of ways to get my music on the net without paying for it. I doubt it’s any good, but I use it to relax every few days or so and just picked up a lavaliere mic to reduce the huffing that is my breath. Nothing is edited, but there aren’t that many mistakes outside of a few cuss words in between starting up again after a mistake.

There’s the google drive link to 80 or so songs. I had to manually port them off my iPad to the google drive one at a time because voice memos doesn’t do mass porting even to its own file system, which was a bummer.

I’ll add more music now and again. If you want to hear a bit of everything then I would pick randomly.

Warning: I do swear, huff, and squeak. The piano and myself are both old on the inside, haha.

Hope you enjoy them.
Have a wonderful night/day.
