Okay...

I can't tell if this an insult directed towards me but if it is, it's the first time I've been insulted by someone for agreeing with them. :P


Nah...he's insulting me...and he'll get away with it, just like he always does.

Deb I must say that with the advent of e-cigarettes and providing they become affordable for everyone who needs one to give up tobacco, and with that just a straight shot of nicotine whenever needed, in vapor form..I'd be happy to see the number of "smoke" cigarettes dwindle. If I had enough money to give every smoker friend I know an E-Cig starter set I would do it in a heartbeat...it's certainly made my life a lot less hectic. These are smokeless, odorless, and they do an effective job of providing that nicotine relief. I hope some day they become available, cheaper...so that everyone can tell Big Tobacco to go suck an egg.

To err is human - but to really screw up you need a computer.

Always listen to experts. They'll tell you what can't be done and why. Then do it.

Wow. Good for you.

So...when does your court date come up?


I must have had to defend myself this way a dozen times. Never had to go to court. No need for me to press charges as I'm OK.

You have to be a true bandwagoneer if you buy Mike's line about looking for the right deal to trade Luongo.

True fans and hockey diehards know, that is double talk for, "Luongo is a high ticket commodity now or next year, we'll keep him around just in case Schneider turns out to be a lemon and chokes games."

And choke he will.

I know this. I'm never wrong.

Basic rule - everyone is entitled to an opinion here - just be prepared for the fallout when said opinion is uninformed (and I am not suggesting that your opinion fall into that category).

Besides on an anonymous message board, who cares?

I understand that and even though it's the internet and it's all anonymous and what not, I just don't like upsetting people whether or not I know them, it just goes against my nature I guess...

I'm not saying it's bad to voice and defend your opinion with every fibre of your being. Nothing wrong with that.

Idiocy is a matter of opinion, sir. Most people smoke to relieve stress or because they are addicted...and those who smoke to relieve stress are smoking to relieve the stress brought about by having to deal with people like the posters in this thread. You want to ban smoking indoors (restaurants, bars), fine...like I said..but I proposed a viable solution, and just because someone who lives a zillion miles away from me thinks he knows everything there is to know about this issue will not deter me from positing the idea to the county commissioners...which I have already done, and there will be a vote on it next month at their meeting. I don't listen to "so-called" experts...I fight to prove them wrong...and if the vote goes the way it's looking now...there will be a provided community smoking lounge in Salisbury. Whether or not this would ever work in your hometown, in Vancouver, in BC is completely irrelevant to me, so reading rote statutes and laws and ordinances and codes is 100times even more irrelevant to me. Here nor there. I am on an E-Cig, free from the bondage of tobacco, so whatever happens with it really doesn't affect me at all. The best solution would be for the E-Cig manufacturers to make their product a: more affordable, and b: more readily available. If they ever got around to doing that, this entire argument would one day be moot.


Smokers actually believe that it relieves stress? LOL! Reminds me of drinkers who think alcohol helps with depression.

OK, OK.

100% of all of indoors or enclosed spaces is nonsmoking and 100% of all of the outdoors for smokers. BTW, this would include your own home and parks and bus stops as well. Anyway, that's how I feel about it.

I loved my grandma and could put up with her smoking but I had to change my clothes and shower after visiting her.

See his grandma smokes. She must be old and she's still alive, smoking isn't bad for you or anyone else. The people who complain about smokers on the other hand are clearly a much larger detriment to society and themselves.

ok well then you must be old. Since she lived to be a grandma i'm still assuming she was old. People who don't smoke die too, we're all gonna ???? die even if you breath some of your grandma's second hand smoke, and she's dies from being attacked by a gang of huge black ni..................njas.

I saw a piece of work with his girlfriend yell at this smoker to kill himself but not to drag them with him. The smoker was sitting there quietly at maybe 50 feet away. Long story short, the girlfriend was screaming and the boyfriend was out cold with his nose mashed in. The smoker was calmly walking away. This was in Yaletown. I really hated that smoker for not putting his cigarette out on the yuppy's forehead. We sat in the patio and continued to drink our beer watching for about 20 minutes at the guy lying there with the mashed in nose while others swarmed around doing nothing. The ambulance came. The ambulance had pretty lights.

The last time a limp wrist said that to me, he assaulted me by using his face to repeatedly hurt my fist. I had to walk away after that.


Damn!, You should try that with me, As someone who takes care of his health, non-smoker, boxing for the last 11 years, I think the outcome would be diff...but really, who are we non-smokers? Just some people that are trying to be there for our family/kids and trying to lead a long and healthy life...I have no prob with smokers, it's your choice, Just be considerate and follow the f'n rules.

LOL! Guess what dude...I'm a former smoker..and it DID relieve stress...how's about you get a frame of reference for your foolishness? The E-Cig I'm on now? Well glory be...it relieves stress too...must be the nicotine...yeah...it is..because nicotine is the DRUG associated with cigarettes..and contrary to what some quack psychologists have to say...nicotine DOES relieve stress. Speaking from experience.

Alright MM, if you and your pals are that intent on hotboxing yourselves with carcinogens, formaldehyde and other chemicals too numeroous to list here, and pay the government for the pleasure, this is what you have to do:

Open up a Private Club, which will admit only card carrying members (kinda like the NRA). You wouldn't be able to employ anyone legally to serve you but I hear that the Yanks have a vast reserve of illegal aliens which they can exploit for their own godly purposes, maybe you can tap into that.

"godly purposes" Considering I'm one of the most outspoken religious skeptics I doubt I'm getting my hands on that money...Second...If you've been reading...and judging by this post, you haven't... I NO LONGER SMOKE CIGARETTES. So...as far as your snarky little wisecrack about a tracheotomy...well..it's just irrelevant. I put forth the idea of a smoking lounge as a compromise...I'm tired of seeing good people like my friends harassed over stuff like a few feet of property...I'm tired of the bleeding hearts whining and crying every time they walk past someone who is already smoking and act like it's the smoker's responsibility to put it out when they walk by...sorry, but it is a two way street...it would take just as little time for the fragile non-smoking crybabies to walk away from where the smoker is, but because they feel the oxygen is their entitlement, they have to make a big honking deal about it. That is petty...very very petty...and unnecessary bickering. Both sides can be stubborn and unyielding...I have noticed that...but...and this is THE last comment I am making on this subject because I have a funeral to help plan for in about 45 minutes..The non-smokers in my experience have been far more rude, insensitive, stubborn, unyielding, pompous and arrogant than any smokers I know ever have been. Maybe they should take a chill pill...or find something to relieve their stress so they can stop being so sanctimonious about this issue. I don't smoke. I smoked for 15 years. Started when I was 13, in middle school. I went on my E-Cig 6 months ago, and finally...FINALLY wrested Big Tobacco's full nelson hold on me. I don't like cigarette smoke myself, but as someone who used to smoke...I can empathize with all the BULL CRAPOLA that those who currently do smoke are experiencing. These "oxygenazi" bleeding hearts need to be cognizant of the fact that the air on this planet does not solely belong to them...and for all of you who grill out..who barbecue...did you not know that the smoke coming off that grill that gets in your face and you breathe in is miles more hazardous to your lungs than a little bit of second hand cigarette smoke?
