Shanghai is full of protected bikeways. they are great, except for one design flaw. They are wide enough for a car, and there are stupid drivers who try to take that "shortcut."

Jedi, go ahead and vape. Just be honest with yourself about it. Vaping does not promote long-term health, and you may pay the price when you are old.

Howz about we refer to people by their name instead of some childish mockery of their name.

The health benefits to quitting far outweigh the health benefits to switching. By your standard LSD is healthier than arsenic, so take LSD. Supremely illogical. Equating vaping nicotine, a known additive, to bedroom humidifiers is close to crazy.

It would be unhealthy for SB to end up bifurcated wherein the rich live here, and the working class commutes to provide the services the rich need to live here because this is far from being a strong middle class economy.

Of course no women deserves to be raped. Of course rape needs to be condemned in the harshest terms, and no excuses are acceptable. At the same time, women need to take measures to keep themselves out of questionable situations. Abstention and chastity for both genders is a great idea.

ECs may be "healthier" than TCs, but that's not saying much.

"It's human nature to be curious. " It is also human nature to self-destructive things. "But I also know our lungs are designed to handle it." Our lungs are designed to process it out if possible, not "handle it," as if that were some sort of justification for putting anything in your body that does not belong there. Yes, of course our environments full of pollutants these days, but that is no reason to add to the problem. Vaping is just another money-wasting, stupid thing for people to do to themselves. Anecdotally citing outliers who have done something stupid for a long time and have appeared to retain their health is also no justification for anyone (who are all more likely to be in the middle of a bell curve) to take it up. "It's just completely nuts. " The human body processes everything as either a nutrient or a poison. What is completely nuts is defending a product, the body must process as a poison. But hey, at least just say you enjoy your poison, and land you intend to indulge regardless. The only use I can see for vaping is if it allows people to quit smoking, and then also quit vaping. Merely substituting what you call a less bad habit, for what you admit is a worse habit is insufficient. Better to work on eliminating the bad habit because, gee, it's a bad habit.

Did it ever occur to you I was posting about Solvang and Buellton while you were posting about Santa Paula, so my post is not actually a reply to yours?

There are 5 active listings for 2/1 or greater listed for less $500,000. Whether they are "great" or not remains to be seen. Even fewer if you are looking for a single family home with a small yard. I understand that you may think people should be okay with dropping half a mil and settling for whatever they can get, but I am sure when you went house hunting, you had at least a few criteria. I can concede that if you are okay with anything, $500K can get you that.

It is very odd that you and your friends on this forum reject the golden rule and the the ideal of fairness. Of course, life is not fair. However, so saying is not an excuse to perpetuate it.

There is never any reason to make such nasty ad hominem comments, especially in response to someone who has not attacked you. I will not attack you, no matter how much you provoke me, so I will not open this particular article again.
