StoPPeRmobile: ZeroCorpse: I like not being addicted to things. I don't need to take a break every hour to get a hit. I don't get jittery, or get irritable because of a lack of my addiction. Smoking is slavery, as far as I'm concerned. I don't want to be dependent on an unnecessary chemical sludge. If I'm going to do that, I'd go for pills-- At least they won't make me look awful.Talk about weak minded.You can enjoy tobacco once in a while without sucking dicks, you know.

Great Porn Dragon: StoPPeRmobile: Great Porn Dragon: Warrener: DrunkenBob: Got to keep the birds supplied. If need be, buy cartons of cigarettes and break off the filters so you can keep the birds flush in parasitic fumigation. You know, if you actually loved the birds.Dude, RTFA. Experiments done with unsmoked and smoked filters showed only a significant benefit to the smoked filters.You'll have to recruit people to smoke the cigarettes before detaching the anti-parasitic module for use in avian homes.And now I'm curious as to how the little things would react if pipe smoking were more common--if they'd start getting into pipe tobacco and integrating that into their nests. (Little brown jobs seem to realise "hey, this stuff that reeks of nicotine kills bugs, wahoo"--smart teeny little dinosaurs, they are. :D)Then they get cancer. Great idear.In the case of the birds, it's kind of iffy that they'd get cancer--a lot of how humans get cancer from tobacco products are from smoke inhalation and from placing tobacco on mucous membranes that tend to go cancerous if irritated--it's not just that there are carcinogens but how they're applied, so to speak.One would think that--if it were possible for Little Brown Jobs (house finches and house sparrows, little brown cosmopolitan birdies) to get cancer from feather or skin contact, there should be a minor epidemic of avian skin cancer in birds that routinely include used cigarette butts in nesting material. (Not only do they concentrate the nasty carcinogenic stuff in cigarette smoke, but they also aren't the best materials to have regular contact with in general.) It's possible we'll see that, or it's possible that feathers might cause a protective effect (much why you don't commonly see skin cancers on fingers of smokers directly attributable to carcinogens in cigarette smoke or tobacco residue--sun exposure, sure, but not so much Smoker's Skin Cancer).My interest on what would happen if birds were presented of a choice betwee ...

tolallorti: I'm only okay with it in the city. It's already shiatty with plastic bags blowing like tumbleweeds so a cigarette but thrown here and there isn't that big of a deal.

Basily Gourt: The little bastids are burning buildings down too. When they grab a still smoldering butt and put it in the nest, POOF! goes the building up in flames.Conway Chevrolet in Pepperell, MA burned down because of this according to the fire investigators.
jaylectricity: So it's OK to throw cigarette butts out the car window again?
