Air pollution causes lung cancer, World Health Organization says. Time to quit hiring people who drive.

I wish I even had the petty cash! But -

I'm so tired of the smoker bashers. It's gotten to where you can't even enjoy your own bad vices because some goof has to cry fowl
Thank you for speaking out. Loved it!

Uhhhhv
Dude......
This ain't monopoly. You need real cash to play here.

BTW, We also know you brag all the time about what you have and what you can do. You have bragged about being an MMA fighter. You even list it in your name. Now what kind of MMA fighter actually has very much money. You sit there in your dilapidated trailer with years of smoke film covering the windows and think that anyone who can afford to buy a new car must be rolling in money. If you were to quit smoking, you could afford to drive a new car and you could toss your moped back in the garbage where you originally found it.

Still what they test is the nicotine, isn't it? So I am not sure if the results would be the same or not. I know Springfield prohibited them in the public smoking ban.

Good news is, many smokers are skinny. These fat ass non smokers are in for a rude awakening. Fat is about to be the new BAN...your ass wont be able to get a job if you are obese. It doesnt take much to be labed as obese. I bet over half of the people on Topix are morbidly obese!!!

Yes seems like control is the name of the game, so you probably are right.

I read about the fat ban. I am so happy, I never went for Parkay or You Can't Believe It's Not Butter. Trans Fat is the newly proposed ban. My BMI is 21.6 and have missed the obese so far. You are right though, there is far too much control on people for their own good. I think they tried all this before with alcohol and it didn't work out.
