Yea true. I am trying to think from the tabacco plc's position.
They do stats, like the bookies they are not gambling, they do their
research. spread these memes people will smoke we will make a profit.
The no of deaths only enter the equation as loss of customers. the memes
war must therefore be fought in an atempt to replace them. Whether you
are a smoker or not is inconsequential here, it is the arena of memes
that is the battle ground. If ciggys killed imedietly they would never
take off.
BTW I nominate John Carlisle as the best person to murder in our
country. (If anyone with cancer is taking this seriously could you also
do my old geography teacher please).
