Welp, awesome people, our database died and our comments are gone. There is no proof that we ever hanged out together now.

#2 zorkmidden at 9:03 pm on Feb 24, 2013

omg and holy cow.

Perfect thread to make the announcement, though. :)

LMAO. I love you franco mou.

#6 evariste at 9:07 pm on Feb 24, 2013

Quick, we need 20 comments so the sidebar doesn't look so ridiculous!

#7 evariste at 9:10 pm on Feb 24, 2013

And 1 million more to replace the lost ones!

#8 zorkmidden at 9:11 pm on Feb 24, 2013

So I go out to get a bottle of wine to celebrate this historic day of switching to e-cigs and I come back to a historic day indeed.

#9 evariste at 9:11 pm on Feb 24, 2013

2/24. Never forget.

This is exactly like that time old Ferkakta Central Library burned down.

#13 zorkmidden at 9:16 pm on Feb 24, 2013

#12 evariste: But that was burned down by angry, illiterate mobs. What's your excuse?

#14 evariste at 9:18 pm on Feb 24, 2013

My anger and illiteracy?

#15 franco cbi at 9:20 pm on Feb 24, 2013
#16 evariste at 9:23 pm on Feb 24, 2013

LOL!

#17 zorkmidden at 9:23 pm on Feb 24, 2013

2/24. Never forget.

Right up there with 4/12.

#19 evariste at 9:26 pm on Feb 24, 2013

What was 4/12 again?

#20 evariste at 9:27 pm on Feb 24, 2013

We'll never know, thank God. The evidence has been burned.

#21 packen at 9:27 pm on Feb 24, 2013

#6 evariste: I didn't do it!

#22 packen at 9:28 pm on Feb 24, 2013

It's not my fault!!!

#23 franco cbi at 9:29 pm on Feb 24, 2013

NOOOOOO!!!

#24 zorkmidden at 9:29 pm on Feb 24, 2013

Dammit, we were just discussing ways to blame it on packen.

#25 franco cbi at 9:30 pm on Feb 24, 2013

#19 evariste

What was 4/12 again?


The Great Delinking, 2005.

It's probably his fault.

Let's wipe out his database.

#26 packen at 9:30 pm on Feb 24, 2013

I was watching The Sopranos. Is there a connection?

#27 zorkmidden at 9:33 pm on Feb 24, 2013

#26 packen: A mafia hit on Bloggie perhaps.

#28 evariste at 9:33 pm on Feb 24, 2013

#22 packen

It's not my fault!!!

If you get an iPad, me and zorkie will turn a new page and forget all about this.

Thanks for the 20 comments, now we only need one more million.

I'll stay up all night if necessary. You can count on me, promise.

#34 zorkmidden at 9:46 pm on Feb 24, 2013

If this hasn't made me switch back to cigarettes, I think it's safe to say that the e-cigs are not half bad...

#35 zorkmidden at 9:46 pm on Feb 24, 2013

#33 packen: LMAO!

#36 evariste at 9:49 pm on Feb 24, 2013

All that priceless at-home abortion advice, gone forever.

The Pope did it!

Raj's life's work, gone!

#40 evariste at 9:54 pm on Feb 24, 2013

He's gonna need to do a lot of meth to replace it.

#41 kianb at 5:19 am on Feb 25, 2013

threads you commented on:


I can't seem to find any threads you were on.

All my comments are gone. A decade of working hard for Ferkakta News Agency™ (FNA), meticulously reporting on the world-wide affairs, providing in-depth analysis, supporting United Ferkakta troops inside and out, fisking those pesky intruders trying to distort the facts, functioning as a game tester every now and then, all gone.

So what's next? deleting my affiliate infomerical links?

#42 franco cbi at 7:06 am on Feb 25, 2013

Weird coincidence - this morning I received an e-mail notification from YouTube that someone had replied to a comment that I had posted nearly four years ago.

The comment was "shut the hell up you tool".

I hope my Kennel Club went straight to doggie heaven, bypassing the purgatorial editorial review.

#48 zorkmidden at 10:01 pm on Feb 27, 2013

So, three days into the e-cig foray, I can say that I like it and I'm pretty sure I'll stick with it. I still have a pack of cigarettes staring me in the face (and I'm staring right back) but I have no desire to smoke them. I tried one today and I found I preferred the e-cig, more tobacco flavor and no smoke! I can't believe this. (This being that I would turn down a ciggie in preference of a nicotine substitute. But it really works!)

The whole experience is pretty cool, without thinking I find myself treating it like a real cigarette, careful not to touch the tip (although it's blue and cool to the touch) and looking for an ashtray to tap my imaginary ashes in.

This is like the iPad of smoking.

#49 evariste at 10:03 pm on Feb 27, 2013

LOL, awesome. I am totally thrilled with my Vapir NO2 vaporizer, been using it instead of burning weed for a month. Beats the crap out of my magic flight launch box (I ended up re-smoking the vapor ashes from that one cuz I never got that high).

#50 zorkmidden at 10:08 pm on Feb 27, 2013

This is the e-cig brand I currently use and I like everything about it except the battery life, it needs recharging very frequently. The kit comes with two batteries but it's still a pain to have to recharge them so often. I plan to try one more brand which will be arriving some time this week so I'll report again on that one.

#51 evariste @ large at 10:14 pm on Feb 27, 2013

Comes in black and white, just like an iOS device! Looks snazzy too.

#52 zorkmidden at 10:36 pm on Feb 27, 2013

I tried one today and I found I preferred the e-cig, more tobacco flavor and no smoke!

There is vapor that feels and tastes just like smoke though, and there's a lot of it, enough that it makes me cough if I take a big hit. Just like a cigarette.

#53 packen at 4:39 am on Mar 01, 2013

#50 zorkmidden: And the juice is made in Wisconsin! What's not to like?

I've been watching a girl at work going through various brands for almost a year now, but she's not smoking. So yes, I'll be waiting for your final report.

#54 franco cbi at 6:54 am on Mar 01, 2013

#46 packen: I wonder what Doggie Purgatory is like? I'm visualizing a land of perpetual mist and fog and dogs wandering around with dog-shaming signs hanging from their necks.

#55 franco cbi at 7:05 am on Mar 01, 2013

Oh, no... Zorkie is becoming a Vapespammer. I'm going to unfriend her on Facebook.

#56 franco cbi at 7:16 am on Mar 01, 2013

I'm glad that I saved nearly all my favorite pictures from Bloggie back in October.

Apart from the pics from Cliff Yablonski, these are my two all-time favorites:

The only ones I missed were the "Very Bad Doggies" - the four dogs that had just destroyed the furniture in the rec room, and the two sad poodles on time-out in the corner. Oh, and the Biker Kitty.

#57 zorkmidden at 7:35 pm on Mar 01, 2013

#53 packen: My friend tried my e-cig this evening (he smokes menthols and the kit I have came with an extra menthol cartridge) and he said it's just like smoking, he couldn't believe it.

One thing I will change is the dosage, what I have is too strong for me and the cigarettes I smoked were much lighter. If I smoke the same amount of e-cig that I smoke with a ciggie, I feel sick.

#58 zorkmidden at 7:36 pm on Mar 01, 2013

#55 franco cbi: And I will send you an angry email demanding to know why you unfriended me! :-)

#59 zorkmidden at 9:28 pm on Mar 15, 2013

This is the e-cig brand I currently use and I like everything about it except the battery life, it needs recharging very frequently. The kit comes with two batteries but it's still a pain to have to recharge them so often. I plan to try one more brand which will be arriving some time this week so I'll report again on that one.

So the second brand I tried was not very good, the cartridges leaked and there was a very strong sweet aftertaste with each hit. I'm on my third brand right now and this is by far the best-tasting one, no sweet aftertaste and it tastes more like cigarettes than the other three brands. It's also the cheapest of the three and it's carried at my local smoke shop, no need for online orders or shipping fees. It's this one.

#60 evariste at 9:43 pm on Mar 15, 2013

zorkmidden is smoking a Prius!

#61 zorkmidden at 9:47 pm on Mar 15, 2013

LOL, the tip lights green, too!

#62 evariste at 9:48 pm on Mar 15, 2013

Smoking a Prius, juggling Volkswagens, carrying the Emperor's dog...all in a day's fun.
