Good, those things are disgusting.  There's a smoking area outside a local store, with a bench an ash tray and two garbage cans, and everyone still throws their butts on the ground.

I probably tossed 1000s of cigarette butts on the ground in San Francisco between Pacific Heights and the Financial District in the 90s as I walked to and from the office.  I was a much more malignant kind of asshole back then.

And I probably would have done the same on the 83 Pacific and other Muni lines if I could have.

So they had to cancel the Apu character on The Simpson but when you click on TFA from The Indian Express the ads are all for 7-11?

What an Indian Butt Rush May look like

I've been smoking cigs for ~35-40 years. (yeah yeah, nasty habit and all that)
If I'm out-and-about and there isn't a place to dispose of the butt then I make sure it's out and out it in my pocket to throw away when I get home or whatever.
Sure there will be people that say that's gross but would you prefer I just chuck it anywhere instead?

Indian character played by a white guy.

if you're still not sure why that's questionable, then imagine if the character was black

I don't want to let a good solution get in the way of a perfect one, but that's the plan to clean up India?

How about making all cigarette filters biodegradable?

Bless you for being one of the good ones. Ain't enough of them.

/smoking is a nasty habit

Just make smoking illegal.

cigarette butts are responsible for heavy metal contamination and microplastic pollution that severely affect the marine, fresh, beach and soil ecosystems


Birds love them for nest building though, thanks to their insulative properties. Take a close look next time you find a fallen nest.

Not sure where they find the butts anymore, since they aren't lying around everywhere like they used to.

Indian Butt Rush is just another name for what happens to you when you eat Indian food.

We have a cleanup day in our town. There isn't a 3 ft stretch along any road that DOESN'T have a cigarette butt on it. They weren't blown out of ass trays. Most smokers are litter bugs. They just don't consider cigarette butts to be litter, and feel free to just drop them wherever they happen to be. If you doubt this, take a walk along any street with an appreciable amount of traffic and look for yourself.

I know it's wrong, but this is still one of my favorite movies:

Tagline: Why would anyone invite him to the party?

I feel sorrier for the elephant, but I'm not sure it was actually abused in the movie scenes - maybe off-screen it was, but did the elephant really not have fun in the movie itself?

That's why if a workplace even allows smoking they should use something like this:

Even ashtrays like that aren't perfect. I've seen them smoking like chimneys because people made no attempt to extinguish their cigarettes before dropping them in and all the half-burnt cigs and fully-burnt butts would just smolder.

Cigarette butts used to blow out of the old ashtray before that all the time. It was very windy and there was a real potential for fire even though that never happened there.

The sand in the bottom doesn't do much to extinguish cigarette butts  if there's a thick layer of them on top of  the sand. At least they're not blowing all over the place anymore.

I thought Rush Limbaugh did the needful and died.  Did I miss a memo somewhere?

Ever seen how dense penguin feathers are? Just start making cigarette filters out of penguin feathers. They would be biodegradable. 

There. Problem solved.

I remove the cellophane from the pack and stash the butt in there.

The ass cancer jokes have become ubiquitous around here lately, I must say.

My dad's dad died of colon cancer and it was just so awful I'd never wish it on anybody - even Vladimir Putin.  Not kidding.

So, I know, welcome to Fark.  I've been around here for a long time.  Nevertheless, gfy, 'mike.
