Onkel Buck: m3000: Does it cause assholes too, or do smokers just start out that way?

/the smoke doesn't magically disappear just because your outside
// amazed at how often smokers are offended when I politely ask them not to light up since it's blowing right at me

You sound like more of an asshole than any reformed smoker I've ever met. Could you not post while I'm in here? It bothers me.



What if he moves downthread to post?

Perrybucsdad: So basically, smoking can cause every known malady to mankind except anal seepage.... well, that's good news at least.


I'd have to disagree...

I smoked a couple cigs a day for about a year...  One of the things I miss was waking up in the morning and having a cup of coffee and a few drags.  Because I knew the combination would cause my lower GI to suddenly wake up and start screaming "YOU POOP NOW!!!1!!"  Some days it was a good ten minutes that sounded like lumpy gravy being shot out of a high pressure hose into a half full fishtank.

But yeah, the cancer and inability to climb a set of stairs without wheezing isn't a good trade off for being able to take a massive dump at will.

While I am glad I quit smoking...cigs about 20 years ago, eliminating even my occasional cigar a couple years back...I can't take anything seriously that is being said by someone name Boris. No matter what he says, I always just hear "Moose and Squirrel."

Why does the media have such a bias against smoking?

I mean, you never hear any POSITIVE stories about it. Just once, could they remind us that smoking makes you look cool?

C'mon, now.

POPPY COCK AND BALDERDASH.

I have a report here from the Heartland Institute, a group which is of immense repute I assure you, Sir, that says smoking actually contributes to long life, cures cancer, and makes your heart stronger.

Your "scientific research" is just part of Big Government, Sir! Wake up, sheeplemitter.

Crudbucket: So? Anybody still smoking obviously doesn't give a shiat.


This, I'm trying to run out the clock and die as fast as possible. Stop trying to make me live to 90.

Rapmaster2000: FunkOut: Hard to imagine that constantly inhaling smoke particles from industrially processed plant leaves that can be used as an insecticide could be harmful.

Look, we get it that smoking is bad, but the fact that nicotine is used by plants as a defense against insects isn't in of itself anything to freak out about.

This just makes you sound like one of those ZOMG CHEMICALS people.  I would avoid it.


No, it doesn't. That hysterical panicky tone is something you imagined. Try reading it in a dry, sarcastic tone. Seriously, inhaling smoke particles from a chemically treated inedible plant? Very silly idea.

I'm speaking as a gardener and someone who took biology courses pertaining to agricultural pest management. Speaking of pesticides, tobacco needs a heavy hand with the sprays to keep away aphids - those little buggers will bite the leaves, leaving open sores than can be gateways for tobacco mosaic virus, that prolific decimator of Solancaea crops.

It's like reverse Snake-oil or something...perhaps we can sell in in a travelling anti-medicine show...

You know what smokers like? When they light up near you, and you roll your eyes and give them the "Really? Are you that farking retarded?" look. They love that.

I guess that's much easier than just moving upwind from them.  Do you also politely ask drivers to not allow their cars to run around you?
