Smoke residue is not "third hand smoke."  It is smoke residue.
 
2013-06-21 10:50:49 AM
We get it. Smoking is bad. Get over it.
 
2013-06-21 11:13:38 AM
Smoke residue is farking disgusting. "Third-hand smoke" is a retarded scare term.

There's no such thing as a polite smoker. Smoking is, by it's own nature, impolite.

The graph explaining chemical components is hilarious.

Toluene - TNT
Lead - Bullets (fishing weights not scary enough)
Plutonium 210 - Atomic bomb initiator

Oddly, they listed "carbon monoxide" as "meat freshener," when they could have said "lethal poison" with a picture of a dead person lying in bed.

I predict this thread will be filled with polite, reasoned discussion.

So your lungs are saving you some money on that front, like a biological HEPA filter. "Bobby go play in the study, filter out some carcinogens. We have an open house tomorrow."

The number crunching wizards over at Movoto.com take a look at how third-hand cigarette smoke - lingering residue that sticks to carpets, furniture, etc. - can negatively impact your home's resale value.

I'll say this as someone who recently spent a lot of time looking at houses to buy: My wife and I pretty much dismissed outright any house we saw that smelled like cigarette smoke.

Not only does it smell like sh*t, but it evinces a lack of giving-a-f*ck on the part of the previous owner, which probably means other sh*t is filthy or in disrepair.

Sorry, smokers. This isn't a holier-than-thou thing. I smoked for 15 years, and I remember what a smelly slob I was back then. I wouldn't have bought a house after I'd lived in it.

That is just stupid. Steam clean your carpets and furniture. 409 your counters. Move along. Oh, let's list the chemicals in smoke to really scare people. Oh, you mean all those listed are already there? http://www.edf.org/health/where-are-toxic-chemicals-your-home

Hey, look dickbags with a disgusting habit that makes life less pleasant for everyone around them are going to swarm in here and tell us how their addiction is their choice, and those they negatively affect a whiners.

The moral superiority of the addicts will shortly be established.

Is it because they are lazy slobs, or because they are smokers?  I know plenty of smokers who don't smoke in the house because they know it stinks and they don't want their house smelling like it.  I also know plenty of places that smell like cat piss, dog shiat, rotting food, dirty diapers, etc....

I know how smokers feel with dainty people turning up their noses.

It's like when I take a shiat in my neighbor's kitchen, they act all offended like they never took a dump before.

And sometimes is just the smell from the shiat you accidentally left in your own pants that annoys them.  They're like "no don't sit on my couch".  Being all judgmental.

That's depressing.

The only way to not increase your likelihood of death is to completely tear down anything exposed to smokers and start over.

What I really hate is 6th hand smoke, when a smoker smokes around a non-smoker coating their clothes with smoke, who then rubs against another non-smoker transferring the smoke residue to their clothes who then pets a non-smoking dog effecting another residue transfer, the dog then sheds it's  coated fur in a non-smokers house where their baby picks that fur up and eats it, poops out of a window in a high-rise condo which lands on my car.

Damn babies...

We moved into my house eleven years ago.  I have two cats downstairs that have peed on everything repeatedly.  I can still smell nasty stale cigarettes in the one corner.

zulius: I don't even smoke and I think this logic is dumbfounded...


The logic behind smoke lowering the resale value of a home seems pretty solid to me. When I was house shopping, I rejected homes that smelled too much like "former smoker" and "cat wasn't using the litterbox somewhere."

Is this the thread where people who have ruined their sense of smell tell non-smokers to walk it off and stop biatching about inhaling their carcinogen-laden bad habit?
 
2013-06-21 12:35:07 PM
Are people only buying new construction? I Think of older homes that are 50 years plus 90% of them had smokers at some point.

Cigarette smoke smells like ass, and this is coming from someone who smoked a pipe(and sometimes a cigar) for like 15 years.

Recently quit after dad was diagnosed with lung cancer.

Was smoking a cigar when I got the news on the phone, put it out and havent picked one up since.
 
2013-06-21 12:37:34 PM
I've seen way to many pest-infested homes of chain smokers to do anything but laugh at the implication that smoke residue contains a notable quantity of pesticide or insecticide.
 
2013-06-21 12:37:48 PM
I don't smoke and I love smokey bars.  That's where all the cool kids hang out and the drinks are cheaper.

I don't smoke, and never have....well, I did try cigarettes on two separate occasions when I was a rebellious teenager (didn't like it), but I'm in the camp that says, grow a pair and quite whining.  Getting a small whiff of somebodies smoke isn't going to doom you to lung cancer 30 years down the road.  Shut the hell up and quit being a gawt-damned-baby.

Smoking offends you?  Well, or constant whining and biatching offends me - mind your own F'ing business (this goes for bible thumpers and democrats as well <grin> )

There's a radio commercial that gets some air-play here that walks a guy through his treacherous day of avoiding falling pianos, getting run over by a bus, almost accidentally stapling his fingers together, and rubbing his arse raw from low-quality toilet paper but somehow manages to make it through the day unharmed until the guy lights up in the booth next to him.  Then "The Damage Has Been Done".

Fark you....Fark you to hell non-smokers.  Quit being such namby pamby biatches!!!!

Until they put asses back in pants, lard back under shirts, keep phones out of theaters, drunks off the roads, boomboxes off the streets, somnambulist walkers off the middle of sidewalks, joggers out of the middle of my roadways, cars in one parking space, crying babies out of public places, stop women from re-arranging their purse while blocking the cash register, speed limits being treated like suggestions, the words "please" and "thank you" are restored to the American lexicon, I'll smoke up a freaking storm Just To Piss You Off. fark you - I owe you what the world owes you; not a shiat. This is your monkey house - get used to the smell of poo, because its everywhere, and it ain't coming clean anytime soon.
