    Why companies don't universally pack tomato paste in tubes. I don't think I've ever used a whole can...

    ^^ As a former smoker (ten years smoke free this month, woot!) I can attest that the taste of the smoke can be pleasant, and that it is calming. However, that pleasure didn't outweigh the nastiness of waking up in the middle of the night to cough and gag.

    I totally agree when it comes to weddings and mostly agree when it comes to getting drunk. I enjoy drinking every once in a while, but getting shitfaced drunk every weekend? I do not understand.

    Why it's illegal to smoke a plant that has killed all of zero people, and yet legal to drink and smoke products that have killed millions.

    If you smoke anything, it will increase the odds of killing you. Burning particulates is always a bad idea.

    So if you smoke ham, your odds of being killed are increased?

    Maybe they can't have sugar but the other stuff is okay for them. Maybe they've already topped off their sugar quota for the day. Maybe they see no need to add insult to injury. If I have a cookie and a slice of cake and ice cream, there's a hundred grams of sugar. Is it somehow more logical to make it 128 by having a soda with even more sugar?



    I don't understand why some people don't answer direct questions. I can't think of an example, but all my life I've found it frustrating when a question is asked and the person talks around the question, gives situational side-topics, or even makes excuses - but never actually answers the question. Sometimes I wonder if they're not hearing the same thing I am. Or maybe they're reading between the lines and missing the lines? Dunno. It's puzzling.

    This sounds like all-or-nothing thinking to me -- black and white, no in between. If someone has a drinking problem or can't seem to shake a smoking habit, should they knock themselves out and eat garbage on top of the abuse they're already doing to their bodies? They, more than anyone else, probably need to eat healthy to make up for the damage the smoking and drinking is doing to them.

    I knew someone who was a smoker, but would quit smoking every time she got pregnant. Then she would pick up smoking again as soon as the baby was born. I never quite understood that. If the ability to quit was there, why not just give it up altogether?
