Eliminate secondhand vape smoke with this groundbreaking personal filter

We've all experienced it at some point, haven't we? That unexpected cloud of secondhand vape smoke engulfs you while you mind your own business, walk down the street, or sit in a park. Whether you're the culprit behind the cloud or the unwilling participant breathing it in, the concerns about the potential health risks and societal implications of secondhand vape smoke are far too real. Even as vaping has been lauded as a safer alternative to traditional smoking, the impact on bystanders can be just as intrusive and potentially harmful.

Enter PHILTER, a company that has made it its mission to put an end to this all-too-familiar scenario. With a laser-focused dedication to bettering the lives of cannabis and nicotine users, PHILTER champions a future where vaping and a clean environment aren't mutually exclusive. Built on the foundation of innovation, this tech-savvy company has designed ground-breaking personal filters that eliminate secondhand smoke and enhance the overall vaping experience.


PHILTER’s Revolutionary Technology

Meet the PHREND and the POCKET, PHILTER's game-changing products that aim to transform the vaping experience for both smokers and bystanders. They aren't just personal filters but a statement, a commitment to change. And they're not your typical devices either. The PHREND and the POCKET come equipped with a wide range of innovative features, with everything from plant-based biodegradable filters to medical-grade silicone mouthpieces. And yes, they are designed to work seamlessly with your favorite smoking accessories.

But what sets the PHREND and the POCKET apart from the crowd are their unique abilities to provide a discreet, odorless, and stress-free vaping experience. Gone are the days of uncomfortable stares from bystanders as you exhale a cloud of smoke. With these revolutionary personal filters, your exhalations are practically invisible, leaving no trace of smell or visible smoke. Imagine taking a vape break at your office, home, or even public places without worrying about a lingering scent or offending others. That's not just smart smoking; that's considerate smoking. And with PHILTER, it's the new norm.

The PHREND

Let's take a closer look at the PHREND, the perfect companion for the professional smoker. This isn't your ordinary filter. It boasts an innovative, plant-based polymer filter that doesn't just vanish into thin air but decomposes in less than three years. That's a massive leap from the nearly one thousand years it takes for regular plastic to break down! Plus, with a newly designed mouthpiece for efficient exhales and a capacity of up to 500 exhales per filter, it's safe to say that the PHREND isn't just environmentally friendly; it's also a beast at handling those hefty vaping sessions.

But the PHREND's charm doesn't stop at its high-capacity, biodegradable filter. Its packaging is a marvel in its own right, too. Each PHREND product includes a sleeve made of biodegradable seed paper that, when planted, grows into a beautiful array of wildflowers. Not only does this innovative packaging reduce waste, but it also supports declining bee populations by providing them with a new pollen source. So with every PHREND you purchase, you're improving your vaping experience and contributing to a greener planet by supporting our buzzing friends. Now, that's what we call smoking responsibly.

The POCKET

Let's shift our spotlight to PHILTER's reigning champ, the crowd-pleasing POCKET. As PHILTER's bestseller, the POCKET is a compact powerhouse designed to revolutionize your vaping routine. But what makes it such a fan favorite? Apart from its sleek design and user-friendly interface, the POCKET includes an antimicrobial filtration phase. This little marvel captures and destroys bacteria and viruses with every exhale. That's not just smart – it's practically heroic, shielding those around you from a multitude of microorganisms that normally inhabit our mouths.

But that's not all. The POCKET's biodegradable filter cartridge and 100% compostable packaging take its eco-friendliness to a whole new level. Made from plant-based polymers, the filter cartridge decomposes in less than three years, just like its PHREND counterpart. Add to that fully compostable packaging, and you've got a product that takes 'green' seriously. In a world where plastic is slowly choking our planet, the POCKET offers a breath of fresh air. Its commitment to reducing environmental impact while providing a top-tier vaping experience is commendable.

We all know that Americans pay more for healthcare than every other country in the world. But how much more?

According an American expatriate who shared the story of his ER visit in a Taiwanese hospital, Americans are being taken to the cleaners when we go to the doctor. We live in a country that claims to be the greatest in the world, but where an emergency trip to the hospital can easily bankrupt someone.

Kevin Bozeat had that fact in mind when he fell ill while living in Taiwan and needed to go to the hospital. He didn't have insurance and he had no idea how much it was going to cost him. He shared the experience in a now-viral Facebook post he called "The Horrors of Socialized Medicine: A first hand experience."

Man lists 8 not fun, but very important things you need to start doing as an adult.

"Welcome to being an adult. Maybe you weren't told this by your parents, but this is through my trial and error."

@johnfluenzer/TikTok

8 things you should be doing as an adult. Spoiler alert—none of them are fun.

Who among us hasn’t come into full adulthood wishing they had known certain things that could have made life so so so much easier in the long run? Choices that, if made, ultimately would have been much better for our well-being…not to mention our wallets.

But then again that is all part of growing older and (hopefully) wiser. However there is something to be said about getting advice from those who’ve been there, rather than learning the hard way every single time.

Thankfully, a man who goes by @johnfluenzer on TikTok has a great list of things young people should start doing once they become adults. Are any of his suggestions fun, cool or trendy? Not at all. But they are most definitely accurate. Just ask any 30+-year-olds who wished they had done at least four of these things.

"Freddie Mercury" by kentarotakizawa is licensed under CC BY 2.0.

Fans are thrilled to hear Freddie Mercury's iconic voice once again.

Freddie Mercury had a voice and a stage presence unlike any other in rock music history. His unique talents helped propel the band Queen to the top of music charts and created a loyal fan base around the world.

Sadly, the world lost that voice when Mercury died of AIDS at age 45. For decades, most of us have assumed we'd heard all the music we were going to hear from him.

However, according to Yahoo! Entertainment, remaining Queen members Roger Taylor and Brian May announced this summer that they had found a never-released song they'd recorded with Mercury in 1988 as they were working on the album "The Miracle."

A woman was offered $200,000 for her dog.

For most dog owners, their pooch is a member of the family, best friend, confidante, and loyal protector. They would never dream of giving their dog away to anyone, let alone selling their pet. However, what if the offer was $200,000?

A TikTokker named Alexis Elliott says she received a “legit” offer of $200,000 for her Doberman pinscher puppy, but refused because she wouldn’t dream of selling her dog.

“Someone offered us $200K for our puppy, and I told my husband ‘absolutely f*cking not,’” the TikToker said. “Would you guys sell your dogs for $200k?” she asks later in the video. “Like, that is my baby! That is my baby. I birthed her. That is my child. Like there is no money, I would not sell her. But it just got me thinking, like, I wonder if people would have taken that 200K?"

Is there any thing Tenacious D can't cover?

No one knows why Jack Black and Kyle Gass, aka Tenacious D, decided to randomly cover a Britney Spears song. All we know is it rocks.

And they don't cover just any Britney Spears song. They covered “Baby One More Time.” A quintessential part of the Britney Spears canon.

But it was so good—in that distinct blend of goofy and epic that only Black and Gass can conjure—that fans are begging the duo to create an entire “album of covers.”

Doorbell camera catches boy's rant about mom's chicken

When you're a kid you rarely have a lot of say in what you get to eat for dinner. The adult in your house is the one that gets to decide and you have to eat whatever they put on your plate. But one little boy is simply tired of eating chicken and he doesn't care who knows it. Well, he cares if his mom knows.

Lacy Marie uploaded a video from her doorbell camera to TikTok her son. The little boy is caught on camera taking the trash out venting about always having to eat chicken. He rants all the way to the trash can, being sure to get it out of his system before he makes it back into the house.

"Chicken. No more chicken. Tell me you like, we have chicken every day. Eat this, eat that, eat more chicken, keep eating it," the 10-year-old complains. "It's healthy for you. Like, we get it. We have chicken every day."
