Health Warning

From the BBC: Fears over electronic cigarettes

Fears are being raised about the boom in sales in the UK of so-called electronic cigarettes.

The cigarettes use replaceable cartridges with shots of nicotine, but have become popular because they are not covered by the smoking ban.

While the products do not contain tar, tobacco or carbon monoxide, experts are worried as users inhale a fine heated mist and there is a lack of regulation.

But retailers said they were healthier than normal cigarettes.
Since the smoking bans came into force, smokers have been forced to go outside to light up.

The single best thing to happen to this country in the last ten, if not twenty, years is the smoking ban. No longer do I have to quarantine my washing after a night out, no more sickly head-aches the morning after, no more risking a slap from complete strangers for asking them to move their cigarettes. Speaking of which, why was it that these anti-social b******s were quite happy to suck their poison into their own lungs, more than happy not to give the choice to everyone else whether they want poison in their lungs as well, but they all held their cigarettes away from their own faces so as not to get smoke in THEIR eyes ? W*****s.

So, as there has been absolutely NO testing done on the prospect of passively inhaling this fine mist rubbish and bearing in mind the lack of associated health warning, I’ll create my own, specifically for any t****r who decides to flaunt the law with one of these things anywhere near me.

WARNING. The ability to stand or successfully go to the toilet may be impaired when you have one of these devices forcibly rammed up your a**e.
