Brilliantly Vague

I am Cam, nice of you to meet me 😅

Went down to the B.C. Smoke Shop yesterday and picked up a new Rasta Bong, gotta love it! Paying for convenience obviously I just grabbed the best option available in anything other then a solid colour. Most likely the Rasta would have been my first choice anyways ...

One Love Smoke

First I have purchased of this company and I do have a few complaints though not particularly anything of concern 😅

The top does not match the bottom no matter which way I try flip or spin it. Obviously made from a separate batch though fits and functions just fine but it is one of those things I will forever look at 🤔 will be good for fooling people ... hey put the top on right 🤣🤣🤣

The suction cup on the bottom required a little trimming prior to working, excess silicone left over.

Other then those 2 things I am extremely pleased!

Used it as an opportunity to promote Smoke.io a little though no management around to follow up on further distribution of cards. The clerk did take one after I mentioned I would be posting about my purchase.

So please do check out their webpage below 👌

One of the most expensive bongs I have purchased, I typically search for deals. Also the first with a proper ice catch 😉

Removable and cleanable means I can stick what ever I want in there ... naturally flavoured tokes anyone? ... screw the flavour additives! Make your own ice cubes and cheap juice for a summer time cooling flavour packed treat 👍

Sitting here looking the thing over it dawns on me what is different about this bong. Why it seems to function so well besides being brand new and clean.

The bowl has an interesting shape, now that it’s dirty I can’t really take a good shot. The face around the hole creates a flat spot at the bottom of the bowl. Underside is wide open to the tube with no pinching.

How it is designed makes for easy pull through of ash while stoping the unburnt weed from drawing through walla full burn plus a decent handle I know that I won’t regret this purchase!

Regrets ... going off topic ...

I stumbled across a comment by someone on a post from a long while ago. This venture lead me to discover something awesome I didn’t know about. Sadly I couldn't let it be leading to my biggest regret when searching into it further.

It involves a Mother and Daughter and of all things creation, the thing I typically hold no regret for. Mom and Girl ended up becoming the first “success” of a community effort I was blessed to experience. Shortly after the biggest fall I have ever seen. Started innocent and all was well for a long while till toxicity found its way in.

I know they both struggle like I so seeing them begin to do well from advice (specifically from me being the one to give the tidbit of info they needed having learned it recently myself) only to have the spot light turn on them was difficult.

Somehow through everything it went as dark as dark could go. Hacks and everything. After watching the very thing which empowered them turn around and tear them back down I realized not everyone is selected for the spot light. At her prime she was the highest paid author 4 weeks in a row and that brought the problems despite being legit hard work.

They were my first dose of cancel culture and it fucked up their lives not just their channels. Private information and money stolen that much I know ... what I don’t understand is why in the bloody hell they let that crap get to them instigating everything so much further ...

What I regret is never really having a opportunity to say goodbye before they split. Their success did mean much to me.

💩 Ramble Over 😘

Love the colours of the piece...how much did it cost? That smoke.io bag is definetely a great way to do marketing for smoke.io 😊 I wish there was more marketing directly to cannabis shops by @stoner and the team so they can join us here in the site 💚

Yea it is a gorgously vibrant addition to my collection ;) spotted it as I walked in even though I still browsed for anything else a little cheaper ... it ran me $79.99 CAD which isn't much compared to the average glass bong that size but still above what I would normally pay.

Yea man I am certain to take that bag with me everywhere, I got it set with what I need for my video recording and all the promotional stuff I have been doing ... one day hope to get someone to take me up on a interview ... create a promotional video for them in exchange for handing out our cards kind of idea ... never know at this point 🤞

Actually the more I think about it that may be the leveraging point .... time to start making an example video

Thank You @Cannabis ... everyone needs content!

That would be great @d00k13 We need more people joining in to the platform and you're doing a great job. If we have a lot of members for sure dispensaries and cannabis stores would think of joining us 😊💚

I agree we need users ... partially the reason why I openly welcome the one account writing about crypto ... I will try advise to try write about cannabis but I know even as a stoner it can be hard to pull topics of interest daily or make cannabis relations especially in this crazy climate we are in ... but we are still a cannabis niche platform ... possibly stores could be intrigued with concept of being able to reward their fanbase - eg tipping/votes for posting about purchases - many doors open when you consider the possibilities but it requires a middle man to maintain the operation in most cases(I have yet to find a single shop owner already crypto minded except the grow shop I posted about, he is interested in profits off "mining" only) ... biggest emphasis is ability to make what ever a possibility due to censorship resilience where as asking customers to take to IG can get them in trouble.

What I can say is stoner seemed to like and support the efforts ... mention of concepts to build it further ... as I understand it that is Stoners specialty 😁

So ... I think I will start with following up on Foggies Vapor and Kelly's brother who owns a dispensary down the road ... dudes wife is the issue but if I say I wanna make them a promotional video(I know Kelly will let me start with his vape shop) I can show her an example of my work and Kelly can vouch in exchange for allowing us to display cards(my dad is working on card holders)

All the pieces to this puzzle are coming together slowly ;) need a dremel bit and paint for the holders logo ... then a straight blade cutter so I can make double sided cards and trim even(unless I pickup HUGE supply of business style cards locally pro done)

I kinda like the idea of making a few promotional style videos (of course Smoke.io will be in there some how)... might take some time to execute but is right down my alley of interest

That sounds like a great idea. @ttr wrote that is happy to make promotion to smoke.io on his videos if we send him some hats with smoke.io logo. You can check it here: https://smoke.io/edibles/@ttr/grape-gummies-true-lion-extracts-review-a-gift-from-mrgreens
It can be one more way to attract people here and i would be happy to chip in some smoke to make that happen and we could also do a post so people could chip in and buy and send them the hats.

Nice piece

Thanks buddy ... I just had to have it LOL now I have a Rasta Bong to go in my Rasta Bong Bag 👍

Seems like some vague bullshit about this place put in a cryptic manner as if that could mask some shit. That whole spiel is bullshit most of the time in crypto, just scammers getting shut down and put in their place generally. Sometimes those scammers go so far as to play the victim card after multi-accounting and self-voting for rois and such while claiming not to be and playing all self-righteous, with the intent of gaining "donations" for their "traumatic experiences" and "loss of rewards and dignity" while in reality just seeking to scam even more deeply. Ask yourself how well any of you know any given person and how much you've donated to them for their bullshit sob stories before. You might find you've been bullshitted more than once, even by people you fucking know face to face in the "real world" as we so call it.

IF you're actually referring to this place directly, there has not once been a "hack" of any sort on this place and if someone has lost their funds somehow, it was due to sheer stupidity and ignorance of blockchain social media tech and keys, or, the smoke team (highly unlikely they'd go that far since they didn't with me when I put the pressure on them.) used the "recovery" feature to access and manipulate accounts. The only thing that's ever happened here close to a "hack" was, well, literally nothing. No one has even bothered to fuck with this place. The chain failed due to coding errors a few times while I stress tested it on an incredibly minor scale, then other times the front-end was down due to the smoke team, no other reason. If you're referring to this turd of a chain, you had better at least get the facts of the matter put out there, instead of some bullshit sob story meant to tug at heart strings and give a certain facade of suffering for personal gain in all reality.

Just from how specific this shit seems tho and how you still think "hacks" are an actual, regular thing, on such a minor scale of capital, I'm guessing it is. If I'm wrong, couldn't give a fuck less. Tired of hearing all these bullshit stories with minimal to do with cannabis. Post shoulda been cut off at the top, was good until you went into your own personal feelings and (Attempted. LOL.) thoughts and tried to get deep about some shit and tug at some heart strings along the way. Sad.

·

Oh shit, I totally forgot that one of the times the chain went down was because we couldn't reach consensus and initminers never picked up. LOL! Yea, count that as a "hack" to a low IQ fuck who understands next to nothing about technology. The inbreeding is really showing at this point.

Also, if you think there's anything hard about being a parent, growing or smoking cannabis, posting on a fucking blog, or dealing with people you consider "toxic," then that simply means you are mentally and emotionally weak or have a very low IQ and luckily for us here on the blockchain, we don't have to cater to that pathetic bullshit. Buck up or get the fuck up, that's how the saying goes. Either get tough or get the fuck out. Your whole life people are gonna talk to you however they please and if you get triggered like a pathetic little bitch every time it happens, you're weakening our race as a whole and you don't need to continue your bloodline anyhow, so no sympathy here. Some people are extra on this planet anyway and shouldn't be catered to. If you can't toughen up, you should be left behind, that's how the world should work. Normal people just tell people to shut the fuck up when they don't like what they say and then go about their business. When you're posting to a public blockchain tho, you're putting your fucking business out there for the public to see and respond to and it's on you if you're not mentally capable of handling that environment.

Not every space on the internet needs to be some whiny, crybaby, bullshit space where we cater to low IQ fucks and dumb bitches and shit. I'm good. Cannabis is an ADULT activity, surrounded with an ADULT culture (Minus you fucking crybaby ass bitch ass children and shit.) and I don't want to see pussy shit get embedded into it and have to watch my mouth just because some weak, pathetic fuck can't handle WORDS because their brain is too fucking tiny to understand that words literally can't hurt you (Obviously excluding threats/etc where harm may actually come. Still wouldn't be the words hurting you, it'd be physical pain caused by someone telling someone else to do so. Logic is still flawed for anyone to believe that "words hurt."). The fact of the matter is, most of the "mother daughter" pairs on steem as well as whaleshares and smoke and the like, are fake mother daughter pairs, meant to trick stupid fucks into giving them things after they magically get "hacked" and "lose everything" and are "devastated" LOL. I don't buy half the shit people say, even if they are an actual mother and daughter, people play every type of game on these blockchains just to earn a quick buck and most of it's fucking bullshit. If the daughter is grown, then why the fuck does a mother daughter relationship even matter or warrant any added sympathy? It's not like it's a child that needs help and if it is, they shouldn't be on a fucking cannabis blockchain looking for it and posting about the cannabis they seem to be able to afford. Smfh. Retard shit is what that is. Running witnesses is free as well, if you have internet, you know this, so there's literally no excuse for you to not have one running if you're here posting, 0. All this "poor" and "broke" and "struggling" fuck shit is just a load of lies fed to the moronic public. I've got 30+ witnesses running myself and it's costing me nothing extra than I already spend on servers and if I were to run it from my house it would be free. "Ooh but what about securrrriiiiitttyyyyy? I don't wanna run that on my homeeee networrrrkkkk!!" Retard shit, again. The guide has information on how to secure and harden the network as well and someone would need to know the port it's running on (Configurable) as well as your personal IP and they would have to target you and if they've already got all that, some shitty crypto on some shitty turdchain is the LAST thing they're after... I can promise you that... They're coming for something else and you should be worried by that point, if that's the situation. LOL.

Rant to the low IQ fucks done. :-) Inb4 "No one reads this." LMFAO you fucks are as big a joke as this chain. No amount of promotion will change this place if the smoke team doesn't do a single fucking thing to develop anything new or useful or even fun for fuck's sakes, for this chain. Most stoners don't code and don't want to bother. It's generally a buzzkill. I have to smoke a shit ton extra just to get thru most nights of coding... So that's a fucking dream. Without development, you're promoting a polished turd, this is just a fact. Bring developers or convince the lazy fucks who started this chain to get off their lazy asses and then you'll have a chance at reviving this turd. Until that point, all you've done is invested into a quickly depreciating asset. Good luck with that, oh so smahhhht meestahh investahhh maahhhhnnn. LOL. Fucking dolt.
