    Aaaaaaanyway, getting back on topic, there's nothing gray about a ban on smoking in your car with children, because

    a)cigarette smoke is a known carcinogen with links to numerous health problems (including death)
    b)opening a window does not actually prevent cigarette smoke from entering the entire vehicle, as any smoker or passenger already well knows.
    c)children have extremely limited powers in preventing parents from smoking. Sure, they can ask the parent to stop smoking, but if the parent insists then the child is crap out of luck.

    You were coerced into a job? Who was the person who did it? And why did you not alert the authorities?

    Strawman. I never took a specific stance on the restaurant smoking ban, and I've expressed that multiple times now.

    The wording of your post suggested coercion within the workplace, not in where you chose to get work.

    You may think you're being cute, but in reality you're just giving the impression you've never worked a day in your life.

    I have worked a day in my life if I believe I was coerced at a job?

    I don't smoke, but I think many non-smokers are God damned pussies. While an undergraduate, I got to hear all sorts of nonsense from Minnesotan liberals about the harmful effects of second-hand smoke with incredibly strong wind gusts and large open spaces. The mere act of being behind a smoker was so horrible as to demand that no one do it. Of course, when it's -30, the only poor souls that are outside (apparently filling the air with harmful carcinogens) are smokers, huddling together around the heated glow of their cigarettes.
    Lol, it reminds me of this from the IT crowd on bbc

    Have you held a job? The kind with a boss and a paycheck?
