Smok 'em while you've got 'em

So, I am getting all feisty about the smoking laws. Why? Well there is a new study on the topic of 3rd hand smoke. That is right. Because I smoke and y’all know me you are going to get cancer. The basic argument seems to be that by being a smoker, even if I restrict my smoking to my own home and designated smoking areas, I am infringing on the rights of non-smokers. If they sit in a chair I sat in they will get cancer and die. The seeming argument is that everyone has the right to never be exposed to anything potentially harmful. I am so ticked off by people who spout nonsense like “I could go on and on but most of the replies you will get will have to do with the fact of invading a persons privacy and such. But I think when that persons is posing a health risk to another, invade away!!!”
… I wish I could continue with this but I am so irritated I can’t think straight. “Invade away!!!” Why it is that NO ONE who spouts that kind of drivel can understand why I then suggest that we muzzle their shrieking brats because Little Johnny’s yowls are 110 decibels (loud enough to cause hearing damage in less than a minute and a half) I will never understand.

Things I am sure that everyone who is not me learned of and got over long ago.

Shipping Container Housing. Awsome? I think YES! Now, I am not a bleeding heart, "Save our Mother Earth!" hippy ... but I don't HATE the planet either. I think these buildings look really cool, they are cheap and recycling is a bonus.

Next, I saw OK Go's new video this am. I can't tell you a blessed thing about the actual song ... but it is the BEST USE OF TREDMILLS EVER.
