In the inverse, it was always thought my great grandfather was half Cherokee. There were pictures and he had all sorts of stories about growing up with his Cherokee family and friends.

Well my dad, his grandson, took one of those dna tests, we had exactly zero native American ancestry.

It just made it all very weird.

I've managed to convince myself at this point that every test they've done was at some crazy high temperatures or other unrealistic scenarios. The likely reality is it's probably just certain additives or cheap materials in wicks that get used that is going to be the real culprit, not necessarily just "vaping".

Building up is naturally expensive to build and maintain, until an area is sufficiently urbanized to demand it. In suburban areas, you can build some up and some out - and maintain proper green spaces, but it's almost impossible to do in an area that is as car centric as the US.
