"the suffering" haha, yeah right

There is no real suffering, just inconvenience. Someone is talking about suffocating above, and this clearly exemplifies my point. Over dramatic people!! You do not "suffocate" in passive smoke and if you do you have other health issues not the fault of a smoker or smokers in general.
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Murder-Cigar...9&sr=8-1-spell

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Smoking-Clas...6040988&sr=1-1

I have both books if anyone wants to borrow them. Suffice to say that the WHO report into passive smoking was surpressed since it did not have the results they wanted. When it was finally published it could show no causal affect between smokers and passive smoking, however they tried to "Phillips Curve" the stats.

Heading off to a local Aargau bar to enjoy a pint of something Dark and Beery with a good book and a cigar.

Re: Smokers on railway stations

I have to admit, the video was very funny, especially the comparison with Australia.

AussieSwiss, it should be your introduction, description video.

However, the subtitles have absolutely nothing to do with the spoken dialog, but that's often the case.

Not really no, but an uncle of me stopped smoking at 80 but drinking wines and spirits only at slightly above 102, three weeks before his end

"the lobby" ? What does this mean ? Is this lobby part of the practice ? or even the waiting room ? then you as a patient can stop the janitor right on the spot. Or is it outside the medical practice ?

Ban smoking in railway stations

I know it sounds ridiculous to the smokers who just light their cigar in the platform of railway stations waiting for their train... to me the sight of so many cigars lying in the platform is just irritating.. if they smoke why they cant just put in the trash.. oh yeah its a hell of work.. Is there any appeal to ban smoking in railway stations in Switzerland.. just curious..

Re: Ban smoking in railway stations

Only in Zuri do rail passengers smoke cigars, whilst waiting for a train.
For the rest of the plebs, it's only a Woodbine or rollie.

...... and not such a good idea to put burning leaves in a rubbish bin containing combustibles.

Re: Ban smoking in railway stations

At Nyon station these days it's e-cigarettes.. The place smells like a mix of bubble gum, apples and cola.

But it's an old complaint, it's here to stay. The smoke is killing people, the mess is terrible, i can't breathe. Ban smoking, ban trains too, the smoke from the brakes is killing me, ban umbrellas, i get hit with them everytime it rains, ban backpacks they make lines twice as long, in fact make lines enforcable. Ban luggage on trains too, and no bags on the seats.

That's too many bans. Can I suggest we, erm, outlaw them?
