One guy at Oklacon was even wearing a T-shirt saying "Thank you for not hassling me about my smoking".
Now I want a T-shirt saying "The only reason I'm not hassling you about your smoking is, it wouldn't do any good." :}

Smoking is so nasty, especially ciggarets. Pipe smoke doesnt bother me as much but cigs...hack hack cough.

Something I found out recently: apparently what makes cigarettes so noxious, more so than other tobacco products, are the chemicals they put in the paper to keep the lit tip from going out.

I've also read that the tobacco itself is radioactive. Smokers are killing themselves in more ways than one... and I'd bet some of the radioactivity is present in secondhand smoke as well.

I never knew about that. I don't mind cigar smoke, but I think cigarette smoke smells like a burning wire.

Ugh... Cigar smoke makes me nauseous. Cigarettes don't smell fun either. The ONLY ones I can even halfway tolerate are clove cigarettes.

Yeesh. I had read "wire" as "wife." That wouldn't smell much better, would it.

I have distanced myself from smokers enough that I can't smell the differences among cigarettes, cigars, pipes, and even marijuana. I did kinda like cigarette smoke in my early youth, but only because it reminded me of my grandparents.

I wonder how many other plants tend to concentrate radium the way tobacco does? I suppose it's not as big a deal then, though, because your lungs are a dead-end that accumulates stuff, while your digestive tract isn't.

Yep, I've found that telling people not to do a blatantly stupid thing just makes them defensive and want to do it more. Smoking is the ultimate slow-motion Darwin award path.
