On Not | Mo Chit

September 25, 2004

I took this picture in a supermarket while visiting the UK. It looks like the British government isn't whipped by the tobacco industry like the US government. In spite of the massive warnings, more people smoke over there than here. With labels like that on cigarettes, you've got to wonder what kind of labels they have on condoms.

Anyway, I'm really happy that there's a trend to eliminate smoking for restaurants and other public places here and in the UK. I can hardly count the number of times I've had to rush through a meal because some bastard who has already finished his smoke-free meal feels the need to light up and ruin my food for me. On top of that, I get headaches just from the smell and then I have to drink a ton of coke to bring me back to normal.

I personally think that the government should ban filters on cigarettes so these nicotine receptacles (they're not people) can get the most bang for the buck with every puff. After all, smoking is just one of nature's many ways of sorting out the weak so why slow down the process?
