I'm a smoker. What harm would you like to come to me?
Advertisements [?]
Edited on Wed Jan-30-08 07:17 PM by Dawggie
So was the oldest living human on earth (until she reached 118, anyway). So was my great grandfather who died at 98 and my grandfather who passed at 92.

On the other side of my family, both who never smoked, my Grams died at 76 and Gramps at 80.

Some people are of weaker stock than others. Smoking just weeds out the genetically inferior.

Isn't it fun to have someone to hate?
