Kids give up fags for mobiles

I love it. A man after my own heart.

Why does everybody think an effect only has one cause. WWI was caused by the killing of King Ferdinand. Does everybody think that all of Europe and North America went to war over one royal from a little piss-pot country. In the same way if smoking is done there can't be only one thing that is causing it.

Stupid frigging sociologists.

I smoke cause I aint got no reason to stop. People say you'll live longer. What's to live for I haven't gotten laid since the early 90's. I know a guy working in a basement writing code that hasn't bathed since Monica Lewinsky was still in the news, he gets more action than I do. Why would I want to lead a long miserable Life.

But it's hard as hell trying to make a drug deal talking to your cigarette! Getcha locked up for sure that way! Guilty of talking to his cigarette at 4th and Burnside in public view. Degenerate behavior and public etc., etc.

Kids give up fags for mobiles? I think you people may have stepped over the line this time. In the States cigarettes aren't called that, but the phrase is no doubt derived from the fact that "fags" used to be burned too. The more enlightened of us certainly do not take kindly at this slip up, which I assume is unintenional. It's not as if bad headers haven't been posted before. In any case, I really think you should apologize or at the very least change the heading.

It's actually quite simple; You steer with your knee while holding your cigarette AND coffee-cup in one hand and the phone in the other. I'd send a picture if I had one, but people don't like to be around when I'm driving to work in the morning. The only problem I ever have is refilling my cup from the thermos on the floor.

The idea that anybody starts smoking because it's fun is ludicrous. The first puff is always crappy, but you did it because you associated smoking with being cool. Apparently, getting older didn't make you smart enough to realize the reasons why youngsters pick up the habit. While smoking can be fun once you start, the only reason people do start is peer/advertising pressure. Would you start smoking if you found your first pack on some uninhibited island?
