Smoking Gun

We know, we know, there’s very little chance that you, dear reader, are struggling with smoking, but here at Mark’s Daily Apple we’re suckers for a good science experiment (especially ones with high volumes of grammatical and spelling errors!)

With that being said, can you believe that in the year 2008, with as much information as we have on the dangers of smoking, people are still puffing away? We’ve know for decades that this stuff will kill you! We know for some smokers, scare tactics (this video, the entire “Truth” anti-smoking campaign, and the fact that in many states, you and your filter-tipped buddy are no longer welcome in restaurants and bars) simply aren’t going to be effective. After all, if they were, the tobacco industry would have gone bankrupt years ago and been nothing more than a nearly forgotten, laughable relic of yester-year.

But every now and then, reminders such as these can, for some smokers, make them think about what they’re doing and perhaps encourage them to take incremental steps towards kicking the habit for good (or at least gross them out for a few minutes!)

Imagine you’re George Clooney. Take a moment to admire your grooming and wit. Okay, now imagine someone walks up to you and asks, “What’s your name?” You say, “I’m George Clooney.” Or maybe you say, “I’m the Clooninator!” You don’t say “I’m George of George Clooney Sells Movies Blog” and you certainly don’t say, “I’m Clooney Weight Loss Plan”. So while spam is technically meat, it ain’t anywhere near Primal. Please nickname yourself something your friends would call you.

    The video was made in Japan. And how many worker bees are fluent enough in a foreign language to produce internet content in that language? Can you find the spelling error in “Please check the box if you wish to recieve email notification for all responses to this article”?

  2. I’m sorry, but asserting that smoking “will kill you” is not true.

    Smoking “may kill you”. The truth is that the majority of people who smoke never get cancer or emphysema.

    Besides there are lots better reasons not to smoke other than a fear of dying.

    I’m okay with dying. What I don’t want is to go around stinking like an ashtray and having foul breath.
