    You fools! Cigarettes are the new health food! They were growing unpopular in the states so we started shipping them overseas. Turns out, whenever those commercials come on for feeding the African orphans with just 5 dollars a day, the non profit organization just feeds them packs of cigarettes. Each serving contains all the vitamins and nutrients a growing child needs! Thankfully, the increasing amounts of cigarettes exported leave a surplus of junk food for fat Americans. Now everyone has access to Cancer, erhm, I mean food. If anyone is interested in buying some wholesale before they are gone, I'm also selling my collection of miniature light posts and DVD rewinders.
    If you can dream---and not make dreams your master;
    If you can think---and not make thoughts your aim,
    If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
    And treat those two impostors just the same

    Lol, remember that Woody Allen movie where he got transported to a future where they had discovered smoking and cholesterol were good for you, so everyone ate steak and smoked?

    I finally got 'A Family Business' recorded and loaded, all 37 mins of it, much longer than any I have done before.

    No, but I should see that.

    is much more considerate of your needs than you probably ever are to anyone else's.
    So contrary to popular belief, the world is not their ashtray.

    Littering is a problem. It drives me crazy when you're driving down the highway and the shoulders and boulevards are covered with trash.

    That sort of inconsiderate behaviour isn't really relevant to this discussion though.

    Exactly. Littering is not confined to smokers - and most businesses/employers who have no smoking rules generally put out ashcans for the butts. If they don't, well, that's kinda like not having trashcans in picnic areas, isn't it? (ie, pretty stupid)

    So you guys don't throw your cigarette butts? Cool... yeah me either ... I don't throw my trash, either, just cuz there's no can.... no, I take it with me until I find one. Bet you guys do that too, put your little cigarette butts out, put them in your pocket or hold them in your hand until you find a can or ashtray or whatever. How many times a day, I wonder? Unless your home all the time... cool. I only mentioned it because someone brought up that smokers are more considerate. And before that there was some mention of throwing things down and stomping them, which I'm sure was pure metaphor, not real.

    Actually, I do exactly that. When the family goes walking on nature trails, there are no ashtrays, only an occasional trash can. So yes, the butts go in my pocket or baggie until I can dump them responsibly - same as I do with pop cans or other trash. But I understand how some people think all smokers are irresponsible jerks. Stereotypes are so much easier to deal with than reality.

    I bow... thank you, ma'am. I've had friends travel to Scandinavia. Their asides regarding refuse/litter and the lack thereof make me feel embarrassed.
