Just because you're participating in something that's bad for you doesn't mean you want to be further endangered.

I'm more upset that the fire-safety chemical makes the cigarettes taste like shiat.

I don't think they talking about wacky tobaccy.

snugglyhugs: NOT IRONIC

From dictionary.com:

Usage Note: The words ironic, irony, and ironically are sometimes used of events and circumstances that might better be described as simply "coincidental" or "improbable," in that they suggest no particular lessons about human vanity or folly. Thus 78 percent of the Usage Panel rejects the use of ironically in the sentence In 1969 Susie moved from Ithaca to California where she met her husband-to-be, who, ironically, also came from upstate New York. Some Panelists noted that this particular usage might be acceptable if Susie had in fact moved to California in order to find a husband, in which case the story could be taken as exemplifying the folly of supposing that we can know what fate has in store for us. By contrast, 73 percent accepted the sentence Ironically, even as the government was fulminating against American policy, American jeans and videocassettes were the hottest items in the stalls of the market, where the incongruity can be seen as an example of human inconsistency.


Ironically, this usage is acceptable here.

Everybody that is complaining that their cigarettes taste bad haven't been smoking enough. I lost my sense of taste and smell years ago.

Now they are suddenly concerned about their health? Why wasn't that an issue 300 packs ago?
 
2010-01-02 06:28:29 PM
back when I used to smoke, these things really pissed me off. not because of health reasons, but because they went out if I didn't puff enough. end result? I started rolling me own, started smoking about 5 a day, and eventually quit a few months back.

and do people still make fun of smokers? are there really smokers out there that don't know it's unhealthy?
 
2010-01-02 06:28:51 PM
Just get your smokes from russia. Tax free and the taste great.
 
2010-01-02 06:29:36 PM
It has messed with the taste some, not to mention the annoyance of having to puff more often or they go out.

Let's see here, more puffs per cigarette = less safe than it was before... yeah, pure genius.

Let's just put random crap in the cigarettes and see who notices dies.

Okay, so "fire-safe" cigarettes go out if unattended, correct? Don't hand-rolled ciggies do this too? In fact, from what I understand, the only reason cigarettes bogart themselves is that they have additives that render the tobacco more flammable and thus less likely to go out. So why would a fire-safe cigarette need more additives, when they could just take out the flammable ones?

sexy-fetus: Just get your smokes from russia. Tax free and the taste great.

I did that once, and I got a notice that I had to pick up my package from the post office. When I got there, the woman behind the counter immediately asked me what I was getting from St. Petersburg Russia. I told her that I thought it was that Uranium I ordered. Not a funny joke to make in a federal building.

Anyway, I ordered Marlboro Reds and they were like 10x more powerful than the sissy Reds you get in the states.

hand rolled cigarettes do not do this. haven't you ever used one as a slow-fuse or a hooker clock? come on!

The non-random crap should take care of that. Do you have any idea of the additives put in cigarettes already?

No, but kids, in their infinite wisdom, seem to love informing me that cigarettes are bad for me. Oh really? I say. Thanks for telling me.

Hand rolled ones don't go out by themselves. They also aren't full of all the fun chemicals as pack cigarettes. Not to mention a heck of a lot cheaper...

Not that I'm condoning smoking.

Not really ironic.

Smoking is bad enough for one's health without making it worse.

If you drink moderately therefore a little bad for you is drinking excessively still the same?

NC just started its ban on smoking inside bars today. getting a kick

Smokers don't get to complain about anything that is unhealthy. End of line. If they gave a crap about their health at all they'd stop sucking ash. These people are just butthurt because we're tired of their BS and they're feeling marginalized. Boo farking hoo.

Quitting is a option.

I only smoke to annoy non-smokers with my "second-hand" smoke, so the worse the taste, the better. Die in my fire, safety-Nazis.

similar story circa 6-8 months ago, also greenlit

I shouldn't be lurking in this thread. 2 days smoke-free and ready to rip someone's face off for a cig.

I'll feed you.

I smoke. It is my choice. As it is the choice of all the other smokers. It doesn't affect you in the slightest. Why are YOU so butthurt, good sir/madam? Do tell. I am curious.

How does our choice hurt you. How does it affect you in the slightest?

Also, you say smokers don't get to complain about things unhealthy. Let us see your stats. Blood pressure, cholesterol, etc. Are you the embodiment of health? Oh, do share your secrets.

Or this: A best-selling author promotes running to stay healthy, and then dies of a heart attack while running.
 
2010-01-02 06:39:15 PM
Just farking roll your own. It'll help you quit eventually, too.

There are already dozens if not hundreds of additive chems in most cigs. I can see complaining about the addition of this one if it's a matter of altered taste, but smokers being overly concerned with the health risk? That's laughable.

That's what I have been doing ever since Obama's first official act was to raise tobacco taxes (and he smokes). Of course then he decided to throw money left and right in a ill thought ought stimulus package, so I am guessing he is not exactly an economist. Tip: some pipe tobacco is exactly the same as cigarette tobacco, just taxed less. Buy that.

sexy-fetus: Just get your smokes from russia. Tax free and the taste great.

There is a limit on how much you can import. If you exceed that limit you get charged with smuggling and wind up in Federal PMITA prison. Also, the tobacco is a different mixture than what you are used to. If you live near an Indian reservation or a Mexico, go there.
