One of the best fuck you moments in history.

This just cropped up on my feed with the caption “one of the best fuck you moments in history” …….. History? Wtf its a still from the film Escape to victory, a film based on a Hungarian drama that was based on a discredited story about a game between Germans and the Ukrainians …. there is nothing “historical” about that picture ……its from a freekin film and that guy is Pelé …..and I’m sure Pelé wasn’t playing professional football when the Third Reich was doing its shit

E-Cigarette Restrictions 'For The Children' Could Be Deadly For Adults

grimmgreenindustries:

Last year I gave our oldest daughter an electronic cigarette kit for her 20th birthday. At that point Francine, who started smoking at 17, was going through two or three packs of Camels a day—which was pretty impressive, especially since she was not allowed to smoke inside the house. Today Francine has cut her cigarette habit down to zero. Instead she gets her nicotine from a refillable device that delivers the drug in a propylene glycol vapor, avoiding the tobacco combustion products that had threatened to degrade her health and shorten her life. Her favorite flavor: berry menthol.

I thought of Francine while reading “Gateway to Addiction,” a new report that claims e-cigarette companies “market their products to youth” by offering flavors “that could appeal to children and teens.” The report, prepared by the offices of Sen. Richard Durbin (D-Ill.) and 10 other Democratic legislators, also takes a dim view of e-cigarette advertising that might be seen by minors. Intent on portraying e-cigarettes as a menace to the youth of America, the report gives short shrift to the lifesaving potential of a product that mimics smoking without burning anything.

Well seeing as the uk tax take from tobacco is around 12 to 14 billion per year ……and more and more are switching to vaping ( I hate the term ecig) it’s no wonder the politicos want them banned or heavily taxed, and big pharmer is trying to get them re classed as medical devices …as patched and gum don’t work …… And has anyone wondered why gums and patches are called nicotine replacement therapy? ……. Your not replacing nicotine , as those things deliver nicotine …..nicotine derived from tobacco, as that’s what they contain ……so why call it nicotine replacement ? ? ?. Follow the white rabbit Alice …..er I mean follow the money .
