Look. If you are witless enough to be a smoker in this day and age, when even the most ignorant small-town hick is well aware of the health risks, you deserve what is coming to you.
Fine. If you, Mr. Smoker, desire to end your life in screaming agony, lungs and throat rotting away, that is your decision.
But. When you encroach upon my personal health (completely leaving out the repugnant, invidious stench) then that is when your disgusting habit becomes despicable. Who are you, Mr. Cancer Promoter, to encroach upon the health of innocent people? What gives you the right to exhale vaporous death in the vicinity of those who are smart enough to avoid sucking deadly carcinogens into their fragile lungs? Nothing is more maddening than being at a concert or some other event, and the one person smoking in the crowd is standing right behind you, enshrouding your head in a cloud of smoke.
Actually. There is a worse scenario. Living in a 70 year old, drafty house above smokers. The cigarette stench has now permeated our entire house through the ginormous heat ducts.
That is bullshit. I am pist.
Justification- Secondhand smoke: It kills about three thousand non-smokers a year from lung cancer alone, which is 30 times as many lung cancer deaths that happen due to pollution
ü It causes 36,000 deaths a year from heart disease
ü It causes 330,000 lung infections a year in babies and young children each year
ü It fills the air with many of the same poisons found in the air around toxic waste dumps
ü It puts babies at risk for SIDS (sudden infant death syndrome)
Hmm. It would seem to me that there are several THOUSAND more casualties being caused by secondhand smoke than by Al Qaida and the insurgents in Iraq each year. Maybe instead of pulling the soldiers out of Iraq, the government should consider pulling the cigarette companies out of America.
Here are a few more pictures that I decided it would be wise not to post. Check em out smokers. Might be your future.
