Cigarette fuckery

These new plain cigarette packs are fine and dandy, but why can't there be a stripe on the cigarette to differentiate the tobacco part from the filter? The whole thing is just plain white. I'm smoking filter over here and never know when my cigarette is done. Also, those nasty pictures on the packs need to go. Words are enough of a warning. I don't want to see a bowl of bloody piss or a picture of a dude with a hole in his neck. There are pictures of people dying that are exploitative. I don't think these people want to be remembered through a picture on their deathbeds.

Just stop with the pictures already. Or else put picture warnings on everything bad. Liquor should have pictures of cirrhosis livers and beer guts. Junk food should have labels with pictures of fat asses on them. The government needs to focus on something they can actually fix, like homelessness or more food banks or housing or an issue where you can make a positive change with your time and energy.
