You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

Or, if you really want a thrill, let's say I said there's a difference between yello and purple spheres. Just because I say they're different doesn't mean I said one is better or worse, as in harmful, than the other.
Oh yeah, I never said car exhaust couldn't cause cancer over enough period of time, either. See, lemme break this down, too. Let's say I'm talking about the Big Mac and some other unhealthy burger. Let's say that I only said they're different.
Factually, they are different. Why? Because they are not the same, right? They're not both Big Macs, riiiight? So, that said, if all I say is that the Big Mac is, say, harmful, then realize that's all I said, and that it's not specific. If you're you, you might think I'm saying that the other burger isn't unhealthy at all, or even worse. What do I really think? Well, you might just have to ask me instead of coming up with it yourself. If you asked me, you'd hear that I also think the other burger is unhealthy, too.
Yeah, I did say that secondhand smoke isn't good. And you know what? That's true. I also said that cigarette smoke was different from exhaust fumes. Guess what? That's true too, because they aren't exactly the same thing, right? I never said exhaust fumes were milder, or that I implied them---YOU assumed that.
So no, my post wasn't foolish then, and it wasn't foolish now. You're adding words and thoughts to my posts, where I put none. If you want to know if I think cigarette smoke is more harmful than exhaust fume, then ASK ME, instead of saying I implied one is more harmful than the other, capiche? That way, I don't have to break this down to a ridiculous level in order to illuminate exactly where and why you're incorrect.
You know, laying the logical groundwork in a debate. Obviously they're different, and each can lead to cancer over enough time.
The question, though, is which one is worse? I don't know, which is why I didn't imply one was worse than the others.
If you want to volunteer and explain which is worse and why, please be my guest.
unless you were making a comparison to present that the exhaust fumes posed a lesser risk there would have been no point to your introducing such a comparison
which is what caused your post to be found so foolish
