    Time for a quick reality check. Despite the hysteria from the political class and the media, smoking doesn’t kill. In fact, 2 out of every three smokers does not die from a smoking related illness and 9 out of ten smokers do not contract lung cancer.

    I don't care if it kills people
    people should be allowed to kill themselves

    they smell like shit and are filthy animals who should be shunned for being manky

    ok that was a little harsher than I usually go for

    Do I believe in evolution?

    Um … I, do I believe in evolution? Ah, I, I, ah … I embrace the, uh — the, uh — the view, ah, that God created the heavens and the earth, the seas and all that’s in them.

    It doesn't help. And it turns your skin into wrinkly leather.

    "2 out of every three smokers does not die from a smoking related illness and 9 out of ten smokers do not contract lung cancer"

    Not hard to believe, really considering heart disease is #1.

    And I have known MANY smokers and none of them died from lung cancer or emphysema...only 1 died from a lung issue (pneumonia, technically) and he hadn't smoked for about 20 years prior.
