iheartscotch: Pretty soon there's gonna be a painted red square on the ground and that's where you'll have to smoke. But only one smoker at a time. And it costs $5 per visit.


And someone will still walk over to you in your square and pretend to cough.

Smoke, infiltrating your apartment complex like a commie fifth columnist. We need to start some sort list, a blacklist if you will, to prevent this from bringing down our proud nation. We also need to scrutinize smoke's fellow traveler code named "cooking odor" and his subordinates "Fish" and "Curry".

I knew there was some reason I can't get attractive women with large breasts to visit my apartment. It's that bastard smoker in 4B.

No, cretin. There are no smokers in competitive speedskating, any more than there are functional alcoholics in the astronaut program. Let me say it again. NoLink smokers. Here's another one - competitive marathon: no smokers. Wait, the ideas just keep coming. My last 100km bicycle time trial? Pretty sure there were no smokers on that one either. Unless they somehow found a way to smoke while on their aero bars and their heart rate was at 90% max.

Smokers are disgusting sh*tbags. They defend their addiction as "freedom" in the same way the NAMBLA creeps enhort you to keep an open mind about sexuality.

BlippityBleep: steamingpile: So I should accept people smoking around me because there are worse things in the air? How about just not thinking it doesn't smell like shiat, that those around you can't smell it all the time, or that it only affects you with zero secondary effect to the rest of the public.

there is no health hazard to others when it comes to outdoor smoking, and people should be far less sensitive little snowflaky about the smell of cigarette smoke.


To be fair though, alot of American cigarettes do smell absolutely awful. My mom smoked Salems and my god, in a 60's car with the windows up, brutal. But, yeah, just because I can smell it and I don't like it, doesn't mean it's hurting my health. If that was the case my cat's ass would be a superfund site.

BlippityBleep: ZeroPly: BlippityBleep: ZeroPly: Who the f*ck is stupid enough to still be smoking, yet smart enough to have any sort of opinion on a public health issue?

hate to burst your weird little bubble, but there are plenty of healthy smokers out there who could physically outperform you in any category.

Challenge accepted. My 500m short track speedskating time this year was 57 seconds. Show me a healthy smoker out there who can outperform me.

go find your own! i'm not into 500m short track speedskating but ask your competitors. i'd be very surprised if you didn't find a few smokers in the bunch. probably closet smokers due to the bullshiat social stigma attached to it nowadays but you'll find them i'm sure.

skinink: Until smoking is made illegal, then too bad for you non smokers. It's a legal item. But since the state and local governments love the tobacco taxes they collect, it'll be a cold day in hell when tobacco cigarretts are banned.


Also, even if were banned, there would be plenty of organized crime types who would be glad to smuggle in foreign smokes, illicitly manufacture them here, and set up "smoke-easys" where smokers could smoke (and gamle and drink and have hooker sex and do drugs). The blood bath in the streets establishing all this would make the old alcohol prohibition murders seem like a sandbox fight between 4 year olds.

austerity101: serves no purpose.


That's silly. Smoking is glamorous and makes you look cool and helps you get laid. If there's any better purpose for anything, I haven't heard it.

What about people who smoke when they're not farking? Are they ok?


Not so CSB:
Wife and I were at Cedar Point last summer. Stopped by one of the CLEARLY MARKED smoking areas, sat down and lit up. Guy next to me does the "cough cough" thing, shoots me a dirty look and storms off.

Meanwhile, the truck idling right outside my building is pumping health and long life into my apartment.

//No, seriously. The delivery trucks and the guy with the gas powered snow blower is more obnoxious than my smoking neighbors.
