I wanna bitch about the people that, for lack of a better explanation - seem to marinate themselves in a bathtub full of colognes and/or perfumes.
If you wanna come down so hard on smokers - you should come down just as hard on ANYBODY that wears any sort of scented product. They can make it JUST as hard for certain people to breathe, if not MORE difficult than just trying to deal with 1 lil ole cigarette.
Both will gag anybody(Well, smokes don't gag everybody..). Both will cause certain people to have attacks.
So I ask - Why is it only frowned upon to wear scents in the workplace - yet any other public area and you can douse yourself in as much cologne as you want? Sure, people bitch about it - but there are no laws against it.
Whats gonna bother you more - smoke that dissipates quickly - or a smell that will permeate a room until the point of complete over-saturation? Any place with airflow and smoke isn't a problem.. Somebody that douses the entire bottle on themselves will be a problem unless they're in a vacuum chamber.
The brainwashed will rant on about that 1 cigarette. Anybody else with a brain will see my point.
And furthermore, when I'm dead at 57 after really using no healthcare money - you can lay there in your deathbed at the age of 95, while waiting for every organ in your body to fail...
And laugh knowing that it was MY money, foolishly spent on cigarettes that paid for the machines keeping you alive.

Standing in a bus shelter waiting for the bus, less than ideal weather conditions, person next to me lights up a smoke. Inconsiderate? yes. Resolution? Shoot them a dirty look and stand outside the shelter, where 70% of the time they apologize and we trade places.
What's way worse that this? People who pocket their half smoked cigarettes when they see the bus comming, and then create a disgusting radius of rancid nasty stink half smoked grossness.
Next time I see someone knocking off the cherry to pocket it when the bus comes, I'm knocking it out of their hand and shouting "NO!" (not really I would never have the guts)--- Fuck that smells bad.
Ok, first of all I know that there have been 1000 bitches on here before about smokers and their throwing their butts on the ground. I happen to be a non-smoker completely against it but I'm really trying to mellow out about it as I really can't do anything about it or see it stopping. Litter does blow though, of any type, it's really sad that people have no respect for the environment we all have to live in... Anyhow, I'm not looking to start that debate up again, but this morning I saw something that just astounded me and I just have to bitch about it... and hope that someone in the police force actually reads this. At 8:20 this morning, August 20th on North Park St, a brunette female officer driving car number 60 was smoking... which I had never, ever seen an on-duty officer do before, then she tossed her butt out the window! I know what some of you will say, get a life, stuff like that. But really, there are litter laws in HRM, which would be enforced (if there was actually any enforcement)by police officers, now tell me how that officer would treat a litter complaint? Needless to say she'd probably toss it on the ground. Ok, I'm done, and I know I'm going to get flamed by a lot of people, but really, that just didn't seem right to me and I just had to bitch about it, which is why this forum exists I suppose.---Litter Hater
So I was lucky enought to get a ticket to the Modest Mouse show last night. For the most part it was really great.
My friend and I got there pretty early to secure a spot close to the front. By the time the band came on it was bumper to bumper and 40 degrees. (There's no air conditioning at the Forum) That's fine. We didn't mind being sweaty and crowded. It's a rock show after all.
But as soon as the lights went down three people around us started smoking. And I'm not talking joints either. They started chain smoking cigarettes. Joints I could have handled. I find that smoke way less irritating. But my friend and I had to move from our plum spot to get away from it.
I promise you I'm not some anti-smoking nazi. Smoke 'em if ya got 'em. I really don't care what other adults do as long as it doesn't affect me. But when you choose to light up in a very hot confined space it does affect me. And it's against the law.
So thanks for that. We had to move from our great spot because a handfull of people were being selfish jerks. Fortunately the Forum is small and there pretty much isn't a bad seat in the house.
Yeah yeah yeah. I should have told security. I know. But it pisses me off that adults who obviously know the rules choose to break them anyway because they don't care about anyone else.---Girl with the sore throat today.
So the latest rise in the tax on a pack of fags has lead to an increase in the government coffers, but NO reduction in smoking. And yet the anti-tobacco facists sitting in their "cafés" are applauding this latest 'sin tax' like it's the opening of the great gates of Kiev...!
When in actual fact, we are looooong overdue for a 'sin' tax on caffeine, aren't we, including the discarded cups that decorate our beloved city. I propose to start with 50 cents per 100 mg of caffeine (the widest used addictive drug in the world)...of course this will rise with every budget. A further 10 cent bounty on the cups will suffice. Furthermore, why not use the 5 bucks-a-pack tax already ON smokes and put a penny-a-butt bounty? Watch and learn folks, as the cigarette cash cow actually does something useful...
And "when", not "if", the caffeine tax is introduced, I will personally stand (5 meters) outside your coffee shop doors, smoking my Indian smokes and laugh my arse off at you smug, caffeine-riddled, nuerotic, shaking, car-swerving, one-hand driving-killers-of pedestrians, coffee-swilling hypocrites...---baD mR fRosTy
