There's a guy- he's English, I don't think we should hold that against him, but apparently this is just his life's dream because he is going from country to country. He has a senate hearing in this country coming up in a couple of weeks. And this is what he wants to do.He wants to make the warnings on the packs bigger. Yeah! He wants the whole front of the pack to be the warning. Like the problem is we just haven't noticed yet. Right? Like he's going to get his way and all of the sudden smokers around the world are going to be going, "Yeah, Bill, I've got some cigarettes.. HOLY SHIT! These things are bad for you! Shit, I thought they were good for you! I thought they had Vitamin C in them and stuff!"You fucking dolt! Doesn't matter how big the warnings are. You could have cigarettes that were called the warnings. You could have cigarrets that come in a black pack, with a skull and a cross bone on the front, called tumors and smokers would be lined up around the block going, "I can't wait to get my hands on these fucking things! I bet you get a tumor as soon as you light up! Numm Numm Numm Numm Numm"Doesn't matter how big the warnings are or how much they cost. Keep raising the prices, we'll break into your houses to get the fucking cigarettes, ok!? They're a drug, we're addicted, ok!? Numm Numm Numm Numm Numm *wheeze*

Second, I understand the addictive nature of cigarettes once you start --- what I don't understand is *WHY* folks start in the first place. I mean it is just stupid silly to me....I mean what's attractive about smoking? It's not like it tastes good and if you think its cool to smell like smoke you are very strange. I mean drinking -- while also extremely bad for you --- at least makes more sense to me why people start....because there are some tasty alcoholic drinks out there and well if you are thirsty it does help with that too.

quote: You can clearly see in a smoker the lack of ambition, the lack of willpower, and stubbornness, this just finally proves my idea that smokers brains are deeply effected by the chemical toxins involved. Clearly smokers are some of the most stubborn, narrow minded people, with a lack of drive, its almost like the toxins over the years cause them to be less of what they could really be, achieve less than they were once capable of. It makes them stubborn in daily activities, I work in an office and notice that they are usually slower to adapt, and are slower to learn.
