Don't quit your day time job, you'll be broke.

Unfortunately those people likely had something more readily flammable(a fuel) than just O2. Earlier I mentioned a sweater is a no-no, Those are a duel hazard, the spark and the fuel. Synthetics are another.

This just helps prove the theory that people in Mass. are not as intelligent as people in other states. Isn't Ted Kennedy their poster child?

I wish the cigarette companies would just tell our "all-knowing" government to shove it's unfair taxation right up it's ass. Everyone knows that smoking is bad for you, just like drinking, eating fast food, taking most perscription drugs, and breathing while in a traffic jam on the freeway. Have you ever actually looked at the data that the second hand smoke movement is based on? It's just one poorly done study after another with a heaping helping of skewed statistics thrown in for good measure. It's laughable. FREAK POWER!

Our Government. And here I thought Russia China And Cuba were or are communist. Lately its like you are told what to do when to do it how much to pay for it all the while not getting any benefits. ITS TIME FOR THE GOVERNMENT TO GET THE HELL OUT OF OUR LIVES. Being free means living the way you want not how someone tells you to we are not robots. this is no longer the land of the free and home of the brave, its now the land of the FOR LEASE and the home of the Greedy politicians.
