45. SMOKERS!!!!
Edited on Sat Oct-21-06 06:34 PM by boolean
I've never seen a bunch of people give more excuses for their morally wrong behavior.

At least gun owners and drinkers, while sometimes misguided, don't kill you by having a gun or a drink. At least not directly. (You can make the argument for increased gun crime and drunk driving...)

Only smokers give me cancer.
