There are some things that rank high on the stupid scale. Spitting into the wind, picking a fight with a Hell's Angel, and wearing white after Labor day are all on the list. But starting to smoke ranks as number one. I suppose we should factor in that when most people begin they're teenagers and therefore extremely stupid to begin with.

What I just can't fathom, is why after a diagnosis of cancer some people still insist on lighting up.
"This is like putting a gun in your mouth," says David Johnson, deputy director of Nashville's Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center, who was not involved in the research. "That just illustrates the powerful hold that nicotine has on people."
I've never been that fond of guns.
