Arghbeast:Oookkk! And if you think that`s weird you should watch this Flintstones Winston add. I`m gessing in those days a good citizen would start to smoke by the age 4! I can just ear those voices asking "Daddy can i have a bong for christmas?" followed in teen years by "Dad i need a lung!"


that add isnt really THAT weird. Considering the flintstones in that time was an adult based cartoon, like the simpsons. This add would be the same as a beer add using homer simpson. We can all probly imagine that.

lestat221: "Can you imagine what`s it`s like to get that little shake of the head and sympathy look when people watch you smoke? It`s demeaning."
They may not get that look as much if they, y`know, stopped smoking. Assuming they`re so sensitive that they care what non-smokers think.

"Hell, i could stand outside the border of Mexico with a thousand people and say "pot kills babies and blah blah blah" with megaphones, but I`m not a retard fetal alcohol syndrome kid hippie, so I won`t."

That is probably the stupidest statement I`ve read all day. I`ll set aside the `retard fetal alcohol syndrome kid` (since it obviously has nothing to do with anything) and instead focus on the fact that hippies are the least likely people to protest against smoking pot.

Seriously, lestat221, what the hell? )-|

Yeah, I`ve heard about how they used to do that.
And the "chick at the end" was prolly meant to be glamorous.

"Hey look! Rich, glamorous people smoke! Why don`t we do it, too?!"

...it`s sex. But the way I put it, makes it seem like a horrible thing. Sure cigarettes give you cancer, but don`t call smokers stupid unless you want to be called stupid for jackin` off or having sex... it`s the same principal.

Except that sex is natural and cigarettes give you cancer. Logical fallacy. You kinda` totally fail. Stupid. :3

Well you have to remember that they are just saying what brand they smoke the most, this during when the effects of smoking weren`t as clearly outlined as they are today. Doctors smoked camel the most back then, and I can see them putting that as a commercial.

I stopped smoking about a month ago, but I used to only smoke menthols. Salem Slim Lights 100`s, to be exact.

Anyway, I noticed the early posts where people werer talking about if you smoke menthols, it helps with colds. In the 13 years of me smoking menthols, I think I was sick maybe twice.

Camel Cigarettes, Now with more cancer!

I can understand a flavored cigar on special occasions, but cigarettes are tasteless and nasty.

Can you imagine what`s it`s like to get that little shake of the head and sympathy look when people watch you smoke? It`s demeaning. If that`s how smokers want to die, then let them. Don`t think you`re doing anyone a favor by telling them cigarettes are bad for them. I bet they couldn`t tell by the sin taxes placed on them, or the warning labels (some with pictures even), or those really pathetic "truth" commercials. Hell, i could stand outside the border of Mexico with a thousand people and say "pot kills babies and blah blah blah" with megaphones, but I`m not a retard fetal alcohol syndrome kid hippie, so I won`t. Ug!

Pupils dilate, arteries constrict, core temperature rises, heart races, blood pressure skyrockets, respiration becomes rapid and shallow, the brain fires bursts of electrical impulses from nowhere to nowhere, and secretions spit out of every gland, and the muscles tense and spasm like you`re lifting three times your body weight. It`s violent. It`s ugly. And it`s messy.

Thought I was acting retarded, bizzare. How so.

I dont think fetal alcohol syndrome is real, people have been drinking vast amounts while drunk for ages, it would be much more prevalent than it is if it was a reality.

The whole obesity thing is a worse problem than smoking in my opinion. Of the people I know the smokers have a better quality of life than the fat bastards who barely exercise (Im option 2)

Smokers are bad and gross. They should all be forced into concetration camps and tortured because non-smokers disagree with their choice to smoke cigarettes.

Waaaaah! Waaaaah! Give up your illusion of immortality. We are all dying slowly and there are far worse problems in the world then smoking.

To quote Bill Hicks; "I am going to light up a cigarette, and if anyone here has a problem with that I suggest you take a look at the world around you and shut your f*cking mouth!`

I read his whole post but I was doing it in a rush earlier and mis-read that particular line to suggest at one time they were more than that, thus the allusion to the gold brick etc.

Thanks for catching it. My bad on that part of the post. The rest of it, he`s still a dumb ass.

Camels are shyte, way too weak for our taste.
You anti-smokers would die if you saw the places where we are allowed to smoke.
I, for instance, smoke in college, and by that I mean inside the classes, with a plastic cup filled with water serving as an ashtray. And sometimes we do that with windows closed. (Yeah, I know you`all say I`ll day with cancer, but effe it)

So catbarf if you say something doesnt exist that makes it so?
How much is it to hire your reality bending abilities?

Plus what do you mean by its a trait? No one ever said it wasnt, or at least in any publications ive seen. And traits can be altered by drugs.


I think I may have just coined on :/

Are you a ADHD sufferer who doesnt like popping pills :D

See, this is how Attention Deficit Disorder companies work- by selling bullpoo drugs for a disease that doesn`t exist, and hiding evidence for their own ends. Just like how tobacco companies hide evidence of cancer so they make money.

ADHD does not exist. It is not a genetic disease, it is a trait, just like your eye color or metabolic rate.

Camels are so harsh... not mild and smooth at all. This not-a-doctor recommends JPS, second strongest in Canada. Less tar than Export `A` Green and more nicotine! It has a lovely taste and is smooth but potent! :D ... I should stop advertising now... They are great smokes though..

They did know about cancer back then, but they didnt know the smoking cancer link.

People back then were also much fitter and physically active and fitter bodies can deal with this sort of stuff better.

Another instance of this sort of thing.

Drinking alcohol while preggers now it a big no. But my mother was prescribed 3 pints of guinness a day when she was first pregnant as it "helps the circulation and helps keep her calm" or something like that (I cant remember the proper reasoning). Its likely that some things seen as normal or even good for you will in a few decades be laughed at for being stupid and self destroying.

E.G. all the additives in food now that no one has any idea of thier long term effects.

Well it wasn`t exactly "doctor recommended" but it was enough set up in your mind for you to accept that it was.

Speedy you`re the only dumb ass here. Ciggs were just not seen as that unhealthy, even though they were just as bad, thus how people got the cancer they found out about years later and slapped warnings on the boxes.

lol " before all they were was a piece of paper and tabbaco" Oh yes you mean the time when a Cig was a gold brick wrapped in a lemon slice (some of you might get the ref) topped off with whipped cream right?
A piece of paper and pure tobacco would be healthier than a manufactured cigg.


I`d say that girl was hot, especially for her time. I`m not that into seeing a female smoke, but she pulled off the slightly `elegant` side to it they were promoting.

So, what have we learned today? Just because a product or idea is doctor-recommended doesn`t always make it a good thing to buy/follow. Using common sense when purchasing anything is the best way to go.

They didn`t recommend anything. They were just asked which brand they smoked and most answered with camel.

Marlboro menthol is my cancer of choice, so f*ck their preference. Camels are for retaining water, not smoking.

And here I was thinking doctors are smart.
