    Fountain, you have the most extremely biased point of view on smoking I have ever seen. Typically people who smoke are willing to admitt that it's bad (as in not smart) to smoke. Whereas you ,on the other hand, are trying to accuse people who do not smoke.

    What's wrong with somebody not wanting to have smoke blown into their face? Absolutely nothing. Just as there is nothing wrong with somebody not wanting acid thrown into their face. Both are harmful. That's why all people should have the over dominating right of maintaing their health. Hence that smoking should only be allowed in private areas.

    I know when I go to a restaurant I hate having people smoking around me, but luckily public smoking is largely banned now around here. People should have the right not to have smoke (a potentially damaging particle) enter their system.

    And what kind of statement is this:

    In UK non smokers will move to smokers carriages to get a decent conversation..............
    I've never been to the UK, but I can tell you this, you are full of it. People who smoke have more interesting lives and better personalities how? Give me a break.

    Not to mention you're justification on spending a lot of money is cigarettes is that most of the cost is from tax. Who cares what it's from? It's still there. It's still poorly spent money, IMO. But if it provides you enough joy then what the hell.

    Regardless, do what you will, and hopefully it'll only catch up to you later than sooner.

    Roll the eyes my kiddy friend-you probably will understand when you are older.

    It is well known that you get NO conversation from non smokers on a train etc etc, but in the smoking carriages you do...............I cannot give you like..figures or nothing, but it is true.
    Such is life.

    echo that...

    just because you get smokers to talk to you on a train doesn't mean that this is the case elsewhere. I've found the exact opposite elsewhere. A cigarette in your mouth does not make you more sociable, my friend.

    >we can cure lung cancer etc

    Oh, we can ? Damn... and I thought people were dying of it... stupid misinformed me.

    >Arsehole.

    No arguments left, or out of smokes ? You seem a bit nervous...


    >If a blond stunner who smokes came up to you and
    >gave it plenty-you would not find it disgusting.

    If she keeps her mouth far away from my nose, no, I propably won't mind. And for a quick B***j**, that's perfect. But that's not the relationship I want to have. I want to be able to kiss her without choking. I don't know if I'm looking for too much here, but I think it should be possible.

    ( please note that I'm talking about people who smoke regularly, not people who had a single cigarette half a day earlier. )

    >each to their own you say, but you dont want to
    >have intimate relations with some1 who smokes?

    Indeed. You can do what you like, and I can do what I like.
    Including not having a relationship with someone who smokes regularly.


    >Now, moderator, stop confusing yourself...

    Does my job as moderator matter in any way here ? I thought this was about smoking and my personal oppinion...


    >In the pubs in my city centre, nearly every1 smokes....
    >dont you realise??

    I do. And I don't like this fact. I would probably be in a pub more often if there were non-smoker rooms or something like that.

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    Dont talk pish, no self-respecting non-smoker would go near a smoking carriage. If they want a conversation they use the mobile, duh!

    I have lived in the UK all my life (21 years) and I can tell all you people that this is complete garbage. People who don't smoke don't like cigarette smoke in almost all cases. I personally don't mind smokers (especially as they pay a shedload of tax!! more than they consume in health care) provided I don't have to put up with their smoke in my face. One thing I would like though is a few smoke free night clubs. When I get up in the morning after a night out in pubs and clubs, I sometimes smell my clothes from the night before. The stench is foul, just full of cigarette smoke!! If my clothes collect that much smoke then what the hell are my lungs like!!

    Surprisingly, this is true to a certain extent. When I go for a smoke outside the office, you'd be surprised at how many non-smokers are there getting their fix of fresh air. Or may be they are passively smoking my cigarettes, in which case they should buy their own.

    The only conclusion to this argument (based on the way its going) is that breeding between smokers and non-smokers has ceased. Therefore, in a several thousand years we shall have two different species of human... like the Ely and Morlock. Personally I want to be a Morlock. Perhaps I'll get to eat a few Ely babies.

    HO hum...what do you say to the pathetic replies here?

    The guy in London (remembering this is the SEast, where there are NO brains) says i am talking CRAP about the levels of conversation with smokers/ non smokers...

    In my area it is a KNOWN truth, and there actually HAVE been studies (JUST TO ........ YOU ALL OFF) about this syndrome.

    I shall find the results on the web and post the URL.

    OH, I cant follow THAT URL you may say, as I may get lung cancer....YEH right.

    Fountain - give it up, maybe in your sad place which is, lets say the arse of scotland, people like to talk to people who stink and have yellow finger nails and teeth, but in any other place non-smokers have more sence.

    BTW - atleast most english people say there from the UK which could mean they where from wales, ireland or scotland all of which are reasonable.

    OH dear, the scurge of the UK (ie GLASGOW) has spoken.

    Did you know people that like for like there are more alcoholics/drunks wotever and druggies and car thefts and violent crimes committed in ohhhhh lets see. yep GLASGOW than anywhere in the UK outside of LONDON....which BTW is A LOT BIGGER.


    If, scotland had an arse...learn your geography Jock...it would be Carlisle way.....Underneath that we are all prosperous.

    Yes, in northern English towns there are more smokers than non smokers, THIS IS BECAUSE WE HAVE A CULTURE. Wether it is correct to smoke is irrelevent, as every1 does, so it is the NORM.


    OH yes, so you say all the people in the UK say they are from the UK....this is from the fiercest opposition country to the UK, since it got its own parliment.....Do you want the Euro..NO you have FUNNY money already.

    Scotland hates england-always has, wales hates scotland AND England-always have...But in the end...ENGLAND won the most and desicive wars.

    So JOCK-quiet please


    non-smokers have more sence. This is your quote...I HATE BAD GRAMMAR/SPELLING ERRORS..


    Damn it man, we gave the scots the english language hundreds of years before the yanks, and YOU cant spell correctly.

    A culture - so thats what you call it, so you all have this strange bond cause you smell the same or something?

    It has always been my experience that everyone hates the english (not me, i just mildly dislike them on occasion), the french, the spanish, the germans, the scottish, the welsh (something to do with you calling them sheep-****ers).

    OH yes, so you say all the people in the UK say they are from the UK....this is from the fiercest opposition country to the UK, since it got its own parliment.....Do you want the Euro..NO you have FUNNY money already.
    What on earth is that suppost to mean? I know i cant spell that is because im dyslexic you moron but atleast what i said made sence. I said most english people say they are from the UK, which could mean there are from any of the other members of the UK.

    Anyway since you've retired i guess im talking to myself...
