Got a call from a good friend from Austin, Tobias. We talked for a while, caught up on stuff and talked about old times. Then he asked me if I was still smoking cigarettes. I told him I was and then he went on to tell me about this new “electronic cigarette” thing. Apparently it’s got a lithium battery and pretty much delivers nicotine (and flavoring) to the smoker without the combustion, tar, tobacco, etc. of traditional cigs. To wit:

Although the vid is a bit long and annoying, it’s an interesting idea. This chemical delivery system could be put to all kinds of uses (THC?!)

I’d like to try the chocolate flavor…
