    Seriously, I think it is time to send this thread down to the basement.
    He brought the swine flu into the debate, I didn't.

    USA, these are simply desperate addicts. Their world is falling apart.

    More and more employers are refusing to hire smokers . Their possesions such as cars and homes are valued less due to the stench.

    Smoking restrictions will continue.

    The average cost of a pack of cigs will continue to spiral upward from $5 a pack. Smoking two packs a day costs them $3,200 a year now.
    In NYC a pack of cigs is now $11!

    And so it goes. But as I have said you can smoke all you want in your homes and cars but keep that crap out of my air.

    No. I brought in an example of what can happen if you don't smoke. You made it about something incredibly stupid.

    The end.

    I wouldn't be referring to others making something incredibly stupid when you don't even know you brought it into the debate.

    WTH you talking about? Didn't he say that he brought it in as an EXAMPLE? And now you're claiming...well, refer to the bold part above.

    While he may have brought it in as an example it was USA_1 that turned it into an arguement about how the guy was at fault for not taking the vaccination (despite having no evidence of whether he did or not). THAT is where it got stupid. You're making it even worse by making just as stupid posts like the one I just quoted.

    He didn't mention this is an EXAMPLE in his first post with swine flu did he?

    Perhaps USA-1 was providing an EXAMPLE with his post too. In that case using your logic since both used it as an EXAMPLE then swine flu was never even brought into this debate.


    Nothing here , move on.

    Personally I thought it was obvious.

    Edit: he was around 47 years old. I am 48 and still smoking.
    Comparing H1N1 to heart conditions and cancer are like comparing apples and mangoes for goodness sake. H1N1 is a viral infection that ANYONE can get. I just recovered from a Nolo virus infection. However, where it would take a person who is not all that healthy (ie a smoker or someone who is overweight/obese) five days to recover, it only took me two. Even my doctor was surprised somewhat at my rapid recovery...

    I say if you don't like my space step off.
    And I choose to live my life by eating reasonably healthy foods with plenty of fruits and veggies with lean meats and a lot of exercise. That keeps me VERY healthy and happy. I choose to surround myself with friends who have a similar lifestyle. As such, I have very few friends who smoke and frankly don't want the people addicted to a weed to impose their poisonous habit upon me and my friends. If you want to smoke, do it away from the rest of us...
