Already exists. There are many laws covering child negligence. Smoking isn't
considered negligence. Doing drugs is.
Again, back out with the two wrongs theories we know you love so much, there
are many other ways to fsck up your children. Not spending time with them,
treating them badly (but not abuse), letting them watch/play inappropriate
media etc. Should we pass laws in those cases?
You are right. Do what you like when it doesn't interfere with others.
You don't need to inhale toxic fumes to know the effects.
They do not. They bring misery.
I am not insulting.
The public inhaling toxic fumes against their will is not opinion. It is
The packs look glamorous enough.
Lots of them. Most I meet say it does no harm at all. They co,me out with
crap like "my granddad chain smoked until her was 90 and was never sick",
which is garbage. The addiction takes over their minds.

Hmm, looking out the window, my local is shut now.
Are you even aware of the hypocrisy in that statement, given your views on
smoking in bars? You want to interfere with my freedom, chump. If we were in
a pub discussing this, I'd gladly chain smoke, despite the increased risk,
just to wind you up.
Oh really? How d'ya figure?
So do soap operas and self-hatred over not being one of the beautiful
people? Ban TV then?
You are insulting our intelligence. Any point that you can't counter gets
ignored or you write something stupid.
No one is forcing you into the pub. If we held you there at gunpoint, then
You are kiding, right? At least 50% of it is large print death warnings.
Dammit. I gotta quote Mr Hicks now...
"Did you know different cigarette brands have different warning labels
on them? Mine for example says: 'cigarette smoking can cause birth
defects and low birth weight.' F*ck it...found my brand! What does
yours say there chief? 'Throat polyps?' Tell ya what you keep that
Fact: Smoking is not guaranteed to kill you. It _probably_ will though,
provided something else doesn't get you in the mean time.
None of us gonna live for ever. I plan on enjoying my time here.
You don't know me, so how can you even suggest that? You doing so implies
the opposite. In a battle of wits, based on your discussions so far, I'd
beat you hands down. But, I'm not going to get into this arguement, short of
an IQ test in exam-conditions, it's never going to go anywhere.
And just try to pick a fight. Seriously. I love it when usenet gets to that
level, not much else on the planet is as funny. Makes me feel as if I'm in
primary school again.
By the way, where I come from, the full pint in the face is usually followed
by the glass. ;-) Dangerous ground my friend.... ;-)
I like your style. You have the makings of a good politician, able to fight
an argument not on basis of fact, but by trying to appear wittier or smarter
than your opponent. Not that it's an admirable trait generally, but it makes
Nope. We are discussing passive smoking. Big difference. Passive smoking
_probably_won't_ kill you.
