I guess my wife's whole family is awful for having a "Sock Hop" party, complete with Candy Cigarette's, for her dads "19th" birthday. (born on Feb 29th), with all the grandkids.  They will all start smoking now!!!

An e-cigarette battery is at least the size of a 2.5 inch long Tootsie Roll.

So, it's the packaging that's offensive?

R J Reynolds should start selling cigarettes in tins (like Altoids). We can have cigars individually wrapped like candy bars. Or just redo cigarette boxes like those of Nerds (all colorful and with a single exit point).

I also had both as a kid. But I do smoke and chew. I'm sure that my family being a bunch of addicts had nothing to do with it. It's not like every single one of my relatives smoked, chewed, or both (except for my dad strangely enough). Nor the long line of alcoholics and drug abusers. It couldn't be any of that nope all the candies fault.

I love (read that as hate) how the State official felt he had to state that this wasn't taking time away from other law enforcement work.

I don't agree with a $500 fine when a warning and explanation of the law would have sufficed. But when people start making statements sort of apologizing for doing their job, that's when I have a WTF moment.

blame it on the pussy husbands of that area. it is big mouth harpy coont helicopter moms that whine about this shiat to begin with that snowball into farking ridiculous laws and fines. if they had able bodied husbands that showed them the back of a hand once in a while these coonts would learn stupid ideas and going beyond asking "what would you like to eat" will result in a motion that would make her flinch in fear. this is why French men laugh at Americans. yes, yes they do. they've been around thousands of years and they're laughing at you, your constitution and the firearms you keep locked in the closet, you pussies.

Wait wait wait! Someone actually got funds to research the national use, on a county by county basis, of the terms "pop", "soda" and "coke"? Was this, by chance, a government research grant?

"Somebody from Bloomington called and reported us," Lynden said.

There's your problem. If they'd just have drawn the line at Edina, or even Richfield, they wouldn't have to worry about the whiny little narcs from Bloomington. Next thing, those self-entitled rich snobs from Burnsvillle are going to be all up in the candy shop owners' grills about pix-e-stix and rock candy preparing kids for a life of sniffing coke and smoking crystal meth.

Just Another OC Homeless Guy: Wait wait wait! Someone actually got funds to research the national use, on a county by county basis, of the terms "pop", "soda" and "coke"? Was this, by chance, a government research grant?


There are 3,141 counties (or "county equivalents") in the US and that map says they had ~120,000 respondents so that's an average of 40 respondents per county.

Now realizing that you probably need a sample proportionate to population density some of the less populous areas they might have only had 1 or 2 people who decided what they call it there.

And 120K is only about 3% of the US so I think the government probably should do this over to get a better picture. And what "other" things was it called? "Soft drinks?" "Pepsi-coke?" "fizz-juice?" "high-fructose carbonated corn syrups?" This is important!

Map incorrect. In both Oklahoma City (dead center of OK just about) and Southern OK, which the map indicates the generic term is "Coke," the generic term is "pop." In parts of VA & MD, where the map indicates the generic term to be soda, it is, in fact, "Coke."

Source being that I currently live in OKC, frequently visit that area of Southern OK, and grew up in those parts of VA and MD (bounced between them and the Jersey Shore, where the map correctly indicates the generic term to be "soda.")

Hell, even in MN it's not just called pop. I personally call it pop, soda, soda pop, and dirty sugar water depending on the day.

Any regional nomenclature these days is almost entirely mitigated by mass media.

When I was a kid I had plenty Big League Chew and candy cigarettes. I am a non-smoker. You see, despite what the anti-smoking Nazis want us to believe, people aren't so stupid as to see something in candy form as children and want it in real form as adults. My sister, she never ate candy cigarettes as a child because she had a giant stick up her ass put there by all the anti-smoking zealots at our schools. She is a pack and a half a day smoker. Our parents, our mom never smoked and my dad smoked a tobacco pipe until I was 12. So it wasn't the candy that got my sister to smoke, nor was it our parents.

It guess it could have been too much to ask for the anti-smoking people to produce actual evidence that candy cigarettes lead to smoking in teenagers before demanding said product be removed from the shelves? But I know, question such a group and you're labeled as someone who favors businesses over children.

Those bastards, fine them out existence, everyone knows that candy that looks like a cigarette will only lead to the slippery slope of a life long addiction to tobacco products! When they start smoking the real thing they will ultimately desire a beer or alcohol with that smoke, and we all know that cigarettes and alcohol will lead to hard drugs.

Oh, I agree. Much more important than Defense or Social Entitlements.

And the critical results can be made available (for free, of course) to the various "soft drink" manufacturers to help their marketing to the drones (us). So there's corporate welfare to consider.

I wonder how much government spending is of a similar nature?

That being said, I'm a little ambivalent about many "pure research" government scientific studies. (This one, I think, does NOT qualify as such!) Such things as spending several millions on the sex life of the Lesser Antilles Spotted Moth (or whatever) may actually have some kink of payoff down the road. Though if the payoff is some weird kind of military shiat some people might have a problem with it; you look at a list of some of the declassified DARPA experiments and you've gotta say "WTF????" to some of them. Not sure whether pure research should be the purview of private funding only, or if some "stretch" of the "common welfare" concept can allow for government involvement.

tweek46420: dletter: tweek46420: Psycat: Wow, between this and the article of the mass hanging in Mankato, we could have a Minnesota trifecta in play. BTW, it's "pop" in the Land of 10,000 Busybodies. "Soda" is for you weirdos on the west coast...

I call it soda after living down south for a little bit...it sounds weird to me to call it pop now

I thought people down south stupidly called everything carbonated "Coke"?

That is odd (assuming you meant the "south" per that colored map up thread).

Which seems odd.... I mean, I can understand if you called a Pepsi a Coke, or an RC Cola a coke.  But, even Coca-Cola doesn't claim that Sprite is a "Coke".

I mean it would be like someone going:
"I would like a Pear"
"What kind of pear?"
"A banana"

fusillade762: I actually had one of these many years ago. It was put to a different use later.


I could see using it for nickels or dimes, but I don't think a quarter would fit.
