    The reason is because a Zippo usually has a large flame & also stays lit after your strike it. Realistically nowdays in the US a dab torch would be more common surely? :lol:

    Zippos have been typecasted in popular culture - either it's for starting fires i or for stopping a bullet and saving a marine/cop's life :leaf:

    Peace all!

    "While the Zippo Car's lighters aren't actually as big as the Hoover Dam, the sheer size of the lighters is clear in this photo. The massive neon flames, which can be removed and stored inside for transportation, as well as the caps to the lighters, which can snap shut, are massive atop the classic car."

    The "narrative" won't write itself:

    http://www.salon.com/2016/12/15/hey...ing/?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=socialflow

    The long national nightmare that was the 2016 presidential election is finally over. Now, we’re facing a worse terror: the reality of a Trump presidency. Donald Trump has already promised to nominate a segregationist attorney general, a national security adviser who is a raging Islamophobe, a secretary of education who doesn’t believe in public schools, and a secretary of defense whose sobriquet is “Mad Dog.” How worried should we be that General James “Mad Dog” Mattis may well be the soberest among them?

    Along with a deeply divided country, the worst income inequality since at least the 1920s, and a crumbling infrastructure, Trump will inherit a 15-year-old, apparently never-ending worldwide war. While the named enemy may be a mere emotion (“terror”) or an incendiary strategy (“terrorism”), the victims couldn’t be more real, and as in all modern wars, the majority of them are civilians.

    On how many countries is U.S. ordnance falling at the moment? Some put the total at six; others, seven. For the record, those seven would be Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Pakistan, Somalia, Syria, and, oh yes, Yemen.​

    The fairly long article then goes on to describe the issue in some detail.

    Now I may not be the finest Constitutional Scholar in the land, but I believe it is unlikely we are here because of any fault on the part of Trump. (At least as to drone strikes.) The headline on the article might just be a touch misleading.
    "Hey, President Donald Trump: Do you know where your bombs are falling?"

    Hmmm.

    I fully back the theory that, since at the end of the year 90% of the money from Wall Street goes to 1% of the population...

    Religion as a drug for the masses? Pfffft. Politics politics politics.

    Give them politics. As strong as heroin and just as deluded a belief that it will bring actual control of jack SQUAT.

    Damn well better believe that the 1% controls the politicians who are allowed to play with the remaining 10% of the economy's money too.

    Peace - shelter in place, hold loved ones tight, and keep them safe with your love and good intentions of a strong human will...

    ...and eff dancing for a few hundred or thousand rich folks.

    I like the idea that religion is more of a placebo, than it is an opiate, of the masses :sherlock:

    So which version of Strutter is the most appropriate for a bedtime vape, Kiss or The Donnas?

    Anyone ever accidently vaped a spider???
    I saw a whispy one on my evo earlier, and it made me wonder.... how many have I vaped unknowingly.....

    I know iv eaten enough, 2 for certain.....
    Once I woke up with half a spider on my pillow, and the other half in my mouth...

    And another time I got half way to work before I blew my nose, and out came a huge spider, all rolled up in a ball of snot.....

    Ha, no, unfortunately not... I'm not sure at what point it died....
    Not a nice thought to think he was living in my head for a few hours in the morning...

    Hope it didn't lay eggs....

    @kellya86 you know what you have to do now??

    You need to vape a bird, followed by a cat, a dog, a goat, a cow and of course.

    I know some one who was given a Blue Bottle as a hot knife.

    That's really funny, that gave me a good chuckle...
    I bet that was awfull.. I know when I get them with the electric tennis bat thing, they stink if you frazzle them.. I wouldn't want to take a hit on that....

    But who knows, imagine if it turns out that smouldering blue bottles give off an amazing psychedelic high....
    Who knows what wonders vaping insects/arachnids may behold....
