    I smoked when I was a teenager. My dad smoked when he was a teenager. My grandparents smoke when they were teenagers.

    What was the question again?

    News flash, guvtards: Smoking looks cool.

    Nothing you do can make it look any less cool.

    Hell, the only chance you've got is to point out it makes you smell like a sewer. I smoke a cigarette a week, more or less, because I know if I smoke more I'll never get laid.

    A family of Nazis is easily identified by an inception of smoking in their early teens, for $2000

    Yeah, buying too many smokes will soon cut in to your rohypnol budget.

    Legalizing smoking and making it mandatory for everyone between 12 and 18 would probably cause a huge rift and make smoking uncool for a few generations.

    So wait, banning clove cigarettes didn't fix this? I thought kids were only smoking for the fun flavors!

    no, nazi's would be strict non-smokers. Those are the ones you have to watch out for.

    It's an excellent form of exercise for the lung muscles, a much neglected part of the body.

    what, the diaphragm? E colmonellai is better for that....


    FTA: "It's a problem we have to solve," Benjamin said, calling it a "pediatric epidemic" in need of greater public action. She said one of every three young smokers will quit and one of the others will die from tobacco-related causes.

    So, what you're saying is, that 33% of the younger population is immune to smoking? Maybe there's some other correlation, that one person out of three who continues is probably a user of many drugs and has those statistics overlapping what is considered the cause of death. Since it is still a solid third, there is likely both certain circumstances that provide immunity and those that increase the damage that nicotine has the potential for, and since most drug users consider pot as an amateur's drug of choice, that is likely our immunity provision, consistently inflating the likelihood that a specific behavior within a static range of age stays in a dominant input into the statistical collection stages.
