Smoking is cool, and we all know programmers aren't cool ;)

But that poll is so outdated!!! We need a new poll every few months because people quit and start smoking all the time.

What's with the "I'm smoking when I'm frustrated" option? You're either a smoker or a non-smoker. :p
I would have chosen "I'm homicidal when I'm frustrated". :D

If you have a problem that killing someone will solve, then you don't really have a problem do you :)

It was the absence of the question mark and comma that through me off.

As of Jan 1, no. Or at least, I'm gonna try.

I was "quit" for about three years, when an unfortunate incident stressed me out and I started again. Stupid.

(It's not really a New Year's resolution -- just a good turning point)

Isn't that the point of new year resolutions?

Didn't think hikers / bushwalkers would smoke :p

Nobody likes a quitter, Dave. ;)

Generally I don't type fast enough while programming to generate the heat needed to cause myself to be smoking.

Normally, I didn't. It was actually one of my outdoor excursions that ended up doing it. I was in the mountains in winter visiting a hot spring. Around 11 PM after soaking for several hours I got back to the car and started driving down the mountain in a blizzard. I veered right to avoid a deep set of ruts and mired the car on the embankment. Nothing I did could remove the car -- spinning the wheels just made it slip closer to the cliff.

I gave up when it was obvious that the car was going to slide off the cliff if I did anything else, and walked a ways downhill to find help. Eventually I found someone who drove me back into town. I got back home at about 5:00 AM and crashed for a few hours. Then I woke up, drove (different car!) to a friend's house and we both went back up the mountain to retrieve the car. We towed it out after barely saving it from falling off the cliff.

As I drove back to town I thought to myself that a cigar might be a special treat after an ordeal like that... And that was pretty much that.
