Calling others stupid when you've got spelling and grammar issues in your own post. That takes guts.

That's beautiful.

Topix has turned into a wasteland with certain people turning every discussion into their own agenda but it's posts like this that keep me coming back, at least to lurk.

Actually, the title should read "Losers who smoke cigarettes fall deeper into the cycle of loserdom" or "Smoking cigarettes turns losers into dooshbags"

That's rather catchy. I can lend my support. Here's a little ditty about smokers. Ever walk around town and get asked by smokers if you have a match? I usually say your face my ass, but really you smoke and can't manage to have fire? Regressing to Neanderthals much? I have this kid 21 years old tell me he's coughing up blood ALREADY and he still hedges on continuing. That's just goddamn stupid.

Wait a minute. Lunch is dirt poor. He smokes pole. And he looks like he's pregnant.

My mind is blown.
