Dirty smokers in the city

By VYBerlinaV8_the_one_they_all_copy 15 May 2007 89

I was walking with my wife a young son in the area near the Canberra Theatre, next to the Legislative Assembly, last Saturday morning, and noticed hundreds of cigarette butts all over the ground. So many that I picked my son up so he didn’t fall and get dirty cigarette butts on his hands.

What is going on with smokers in this town? Lots of them must be filthy animals because they seem to think it acceptable to litter in public places like this. Don’t tell me “it’s only a minority”, because it ISN’T. I see smokers doing this ALL THE TIME.

Why can’t these people lift their game a bit??

What’s Your opinion?

Dubai also has a bizarre Irish pub in the departure terminal.

A pint of Guiness at 0400 is an excellent way to start the day!

im sorry iceu but the ailments of the general population are their concern.

their rights end at the tip of their nose, as do mine.

Wow, wouldn’t it be a great world if everyone (including lawmakers) had this attitude.

I guess I’m biased, considering I have a genetic lung disease. I’ll just lock myself inside for the rest of my life, seeing as I have no rights.

Let’s face it, everyone wants to attack smokers because they don’t want to seem like utter bastards by attacking the following: fat people, drug addicts, mummy’s boys etc.

Next time I cop it for smoking – away from others I might add – I’m going to let it rip with anything I can think of that describes that person.

It’s just me returning the favour 🙂

More than comes from a cigarette VY.

And do stick the exhaust pipe in my mouth, suck this crap in, then blow it onto others?

No, no, yes.

Yeah, but in what quantities? And do stick the exhaust pipe in my mouth, suck this crap in, then blow it onto others?

I see your ‘C’ and raise you a ‘B’ for BENZINE.

Can i get a C for Carbon Monoxide – sorry thats a vowel.

“Cars produce very little pollutants? You MUST be joking.


That’s the best chuckle I’ve had in a long time. “

Showing your lack of intelligence there. Modern cars produce very little other than Co2 and Nitrogen. The old cars of unburnt hydrocarbons are long gone.

bonfire – I smoke a pipe and cigars.

I don’t touch cigarettes as I think they are disgusting.

There are a declining number of pipe tobacco stockists in Canberra, so before finding yourself a nice pipe to settle into, I’d first suggest finding a tobacco stockist.

For ultimate passer-by pleasure, go amphora.

For ultimate woo factor, buy a savinelli pipe to go with it.

Myself, I’ve got about 4 curved stems, and an oak churchwarden for whenever I want to feel like a lord of the rings ranger. My Savinelli is a straight stem, and you can tell the difference in the quality of production.
