Smokey Smokerson

I was reading a news article today and a study case about second-hand smoking, and it turned out that it can be in fact more dangerous than first hand smoking!

Apparently, when a cigarrette is lit, the fumes produced contain about some 200 chemicals – only 20% of which are inhaled by the smoker and the rest probably by everyone else in the room. Yup, that’s us non-smokers.

Some of the chemicals contained in the fumes include:
Carbon monoxide (found in car exhausts)
Arsenic (rat poison)
Ammonia (window cleaner)
Acetone (nail polisher)
Hydrogen cyanide (gas chamber poison)
Napthaline (your grandma’s mothballs)
Sulphur (math stick – yellow flames)
Formaldehyde (embalming fluid)
Butane (lighter liquid)

And I thought I was healthy!

Attention Seeking Syndrome

Having an Attention Seeking Syndrome (ASS) often puts you in very difficult situations. Whether you have an ASS or you have friend with an ASS, it will require you spending most of your concentraion and energy on the ASS.

Having a big ASS problem myself, and having a couple of friends with an advanced ASS, it is safe to say that it causes deep depression since no one pays attention to the ASS. The ASS has become an integral part of eveyone’s life, and although some people do pay a lot of attention to those with an ASS, often it never is enough, as the larger the ASS is the more there is demand for attention.

So do you have an ASS, or a friend with an ASS? How big is your or your friend’s ASS?
