    Why do people love to smolder and fume?
    We may never know.
    It may be because it raises their metabolic rate.
    People like to feel like they are doing something.

    Possibly because of human stupidity, and stubbornness in the face of all of the facts?

    Actually, ‘fag ’ was a term used in English Public Schools (private) of new entrants who would act as servants for senior boys. At its best it gave them protection and mentoring , at its worst it was open to all kinds of abuse including sexual. This is why ’fag’ IS a term for homosexual. This is not by way of judgement, just by way of explanation And please don’t say that homosexuality is not the same as paedophilia. If you’ve suffered in an English Public School, you will know that there is considerable overlap.

    I don’t think Matt was smoking fags when he penned this one…

    The connection between homosexuals and pedophiles is the same as between heterosexuals and pedophiles.

    Homosexuality is not the same as pedophilia no matter whether I am allowed to say it or not.
    Science, it works whether or not you believe.

    Not only is nicotine highly addictive (chemically, it fits way too well into neuronal receptors known in fact as “nicotinic” receptors), but the industry has found and used additives to enhance its addictive properties, so once you start it is FAR harder for you to stop. (As my late sister-in-law learned to her detriment.) There’s a reason why the industry has fought any attempt to reveal its ingredients. That, and of course, that most of them are poison above and beyond their carcinogenic properties, e.g., ammonia.

    We seem to be on the same side here, you summed up what I say very well.

    Gravity works today and will work tomorrow as well, we are still formulated why and go back and forth. Looks like “gravitrons” are out and I grew up with them as facts for 50 years.

    I grew up with “medicated cigarettes” to smoke when I had a cold or flu, at least that was the perception.
    Science moves on and our perceptions with it, the results do not change.

    Genome: George would also have launched into further examples of linguistic interpretations, with far greater wisdom than Phelps ever displayed, and actually, a much kinder view of the “human condition”.


    On nicotine: a great insecticide in a sulfur compound, and one of the most addictive substances humans use, but not as lethal as meth or opiates, even though not a “good thing”. It DOES make a great poultice for injuries however when used externally, and the Native Americans knew.


    “Faith” in what Phelps preached however, is perhaps an example of the most dangerous addiction of certain mentally unstable individuals, in several variations by different sects of the “bible religions”. Some of course know it simply as “hate”.

    " “Fag” is short for “Faggot”, which is an antiquated term for small bits of wood or brush used to start a fire."

    It is a BUNDLE of sticks, or of iron rods, even.
    The bundling is important. Shredded tobacco is bundled into a cylinder held by a paper tube to form a cigarette.
    I used to find it odd whenever the Hardy Boys would find themselves roughing it and go about collecting faggots.
    The man on the Led Zeppelin IV album cover is carrying a faggot upon his back.

    There is a massive difference between teens abusing their younger classmates and two adults consenting to sexual relations. They are not the same.

    This is true. But, you have to realize that there are people who believe that it is not right to allow others to act in any manner that they do not find acceptable, since the allowance of any one deviant act encourages the commission of others.
    Well, except for the deviant act of controlling others, of course. That has no ill effects.
    Plagues are fun that way.

    The left hates cigarettes about as much as they love drugs.

    As an Androphilic male, myself; it really angers me when people assume that homosexuality equates with Paedophilia. I know a woman who was the the victim of a paedophile ring in a small town. She was often abused by her grandfather along with other male mambers of the family. Thankfully, she is now a happily married mother of two and her past abusers have been punished.

    I didn’t say it was the same. I said that there was considerable overlap. Muslim grooming gangs aside, you might care to read these articles:http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2588703/Child-sex-offences-George-Osbornes-school.html and http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/teachers-london-school-attended-by-george-osborne-abused-boys-1441781.

    The fact is the majority of paedophiles abuse boys.
