Do you smoke? We would hope not, but if you do, the switch the e-cigarettes is seen by some to be healthier… plus, if you get way into it, you can call yourself a "Vaper"! LOLz!
The Vaper subculture isn't just for those who switch, instead it's for those who are actually outspoken about the switch — and the fact that they have NO intentions of quitting. They're the same people who you'll find yelling from the rooftops that they believe their their addiction can save the lives of millions because the vapors they inhale, along with nicotine, are far safer than the tar and chemicals in tobacco cigarettes.

Western lawmakers hope so!
Senators in Wyoming, Colorado, Nebraska, Kansas, New Mexico, North Dakota, South Dakota and even Rhode Island have all thrown their support towards the The National Bison Legacy Act - legislation that would introduce the bison as America's national mammal.
Bison are the largest land mammal in North America and were once roaming the continent in the tens of millions.
But before President Teddy Roosevelt's intervention, the population was less than 1,000. Today, it is nearly half a million.
Legislators hope that the act will raise awareness on the bison's impact on America's cultural history.
So, will the bison be right beside the bald eagle someday?
We'll find out soon enough!

And her response is pretty classy and she doesn't stoop to the level of pointless name calling.
In case you didn't hear, Mad Men star Jon Hamm called Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian f**cking idiots in the April issue of ELLE UK.
Well Jon, it just doesn't make sense to Kim either — why you would consider her a f**king idiot, at least. The reality star took to Twitter to respond to Jon's comment, writing:

Angelina Jolie seems like a pretty cool mom.
We all know she loves her children and wants to make sure that they have a worldly education.
So, that's why she makes sure they know where they all come from and what an impact they can make onto the world - without the need to throw it in their faces.
She recently said:
"I'm not one of those moms who kind of lectures [my kids]. But I do tell them, whenever I go on a trip, where I'm going and why. And on some occasions, they've come with me to different refugee camps. And they also go to their home countries a lot.
Hopefully they live in the world, and they see the world really as it is, outside of Hollywood. f they really live in the world and spend time with friends around the world from all different types of backgrounds, they [will] just see things as they are."
For instance, her daughter Zahara just turned 7 on Sunday and Angelina wanted to make sure her heritage was a part of her bday celebration. Angelina adds:
"We make sure we're very aware of her culture and her heritage. She's an African-American girl, so we make that a part of anything she does. So that'll be a part of her [birthday]."
See? She's just an awesome mom and those kids are going to turn out to be amazing. Just watch.
