I hate smokers...*

Now before you get your nickers in a knot... I don't actually hate smoking in fact I've been know to have the odd puff now and again (shock horror). In fact I don't even hate all smokers.

Why do I hate smokers you ask? Well dear reader because of this....



Cigarette butts. If you are going to smoke put your freaking butt in the bin and don’t be a lazy slob. If I see you throw it on the ground I'll be forced to take drastic action… maybe even ask you to put it in the bin or give it back to you.

supportMIKE is on his soapbox

* Someone is sure to object. "Hate is not a very nice Christian attitude Jolly”... and they'd be right but this is a rant and is only supposed to be taken semi seriously so stop over analysing everything I write.

If you think that I'm getting worked up over nothing try googling "cigarette butts" and just read the number that end up in our waterways as pollution. /rant.

Save the fishies, bugger the people.

Did you see my Tog article on population control? I might have to publish the unabridged version on my blog. We'll see what happens.

I hate people smoking - it makes me feel ill, and it seems almost every time someone lights up they lose any sense of consideration for those around them.

Plus it makes you ugly and impotent (two things I don't ever want to be ;)).

On our honeymoon we went on a tour of the daintree rainforest and some stupid chick lit up (in the rainforest) and then just dropped her butt on the ground.

I picked it up and slipped it back into her backpack so she could dispose of it properly.

I think people that only smoke sometimes are really dumb.

Mike think I´m going to have to send you a picture of pretty much any random street in Bolivia - particularly near food places. The worst time of day is going for an early morning run after the evening rubbish accumulation - I have to practically wade through rubbish to get to the park. By the time I return the garbage collectors have largely cleaned it up in a pile of bags. Then it´s a race against time to get it into the truck before the numerous stray dogs get into it and spread it all around again. You think Aussies have a problem with putting stuff in the bin!!

There are all the reasons in the world to keep smoking. But if you're gonna do it, do it properly... I posted my prosmoking article, I almost convinced myself to start...almost.

Smoking is the rankest, filthiest thing ever invented (apart from dogs... I'm a cat, I have to say that). It poisons people and it enslaves people. Smoking rates among disadvantaged groups such as Indigenous people, vulnerable young people and the mentally ill are far higher than for the general population. Tobacco companies prey on the weak and vulnerable in society, while governments keep smoking legal so they can rake in the taxes on it. It screws up the enviroment, it screws up people's health. It wastes people's money. People have a right to smoke, but I (and other non-smokers) also have a right to walk into/out of public buildings and spaces without having to inhale rank toxic gas that's already been inside someone's rank toxic lungs. I hate smoking. Without reservation.
