I don't smoke, have a stash of old school lightbulbs and don't have a low flush toilet

I'm a rebel.

Well maybe you should start, that would make you more of a rebel I am told.

Im not sure if they should make licenses for smoking or not, but i have to admit, when i'm walking down the street getting some exercise, i'd rather not breathe in some idiot's second hand smoke who just 'stepped outside' his office and is smoking in public. I know, maybe it just me, i'm funny like that.

So are exhausts from cars and factories... Judging by the smog I see over many cities, I can safely guess that their impact on our health is MUCH more significant than some addict having a smoke twenty times a day.

You know, I am a non-smoker and I HATE the smell of cigarettes. That still doesn't make me want to force my preferences onto others. I think smoking is stupid, ridiculous, and bad for your health - that's why I don't do it.

I also rarely find myself sitting or standing somewhere where I would be exposed to second hand smoke. If it bothers me, I usually move. If not, I can rest assured that the fumes are far less problematic for my health than the polluted air that surrounds me or that sugar-loaded muffin I'm about to eat.
