Everyone does things the rest of us think are ridiculous. When people hit by SUVs are 81% more likely to die than those hit by cars, I don’t worry about smoking because if you’re inhaling ambient smoke you’re probably in a smoker’s home. When I’m going to have to pay for all these idiots on motorcycles without helmuts, I don’t worry about smoking because cigarette tax pays for their stupidity. We could talk about driving habits that endanger others–I’m practically waiting for the day I don’t make it to work or home because the dork behind me thinks it’s ok to leave just a yard or two at 75 mph.
I don’t understand the obsession with smoking when corporations, SUVs, etc are much more likely to cause premature death.
