WTF, so many smokers here. Not nearly as many fat people, but the smoking. Nasty! Come on!
Ironically enough, I was just talking to a co worker about this last week in regards to the insane amount of "tabachi" smoke I encountered while in Italy. Italy was such a beautiful place that left my wife and I with memories for a lifetime, however, the lack of public ordinances towards smoking is the US going back decades ago before the crackdown in the 90s. I am not against lighting up a lil green in the confines of your home when the mood is right, but damn, everywhere we went in Italy, the cig smoke was overwhelming. My wife was pregnant at the time and a couple sat a table across from us on a patio setting for dinner, both of them lit up as she was visibly preggo, without a care in the world. I was baffled by that. Never in a million years would I light up around a child or pregnant woman, but I guess not everybody sees it the same.
