    :eek: once in 11 minutes surely a typo must be twice at least :D

    good post Sparky sums everything up doesn't it, how we use to waste our lives away smoking them horrible things

  • Hey Thanks Sparky, Thats an interesting post and made me chuckle!

    Only wish I could have done all them fun things with the life I've saved but you just tend to carry on as normal dont ya!

    Have to question one thing though? - 11 minutes of frantic sexual intercourse? - Is that not rather optimistic???

    I am thinking frantic sex then still have plenty of time to read the paper, phone the friend and walk the mutt!! :eek:

    :D

  • You guys/girls are way too funny. I was actually thinking the same thing but figured I was new here and had to make a good impression. The person that wrote it must be making movies:) I figured this post would generate some comments and a little laughter in the day goes a long way

  • You're dead right Sparky, how could we possibly quit cigarettes and not have a sense of humour!! You got to laugh just to get through the day!!

    You dont need to make any impressions here Sparky just be yourself.......personally i like a bit of random humour and your post must have been written by a dreamer (a man then lol)!

    Keep em coming :D

    Twice and still read paper and talk to friend, not sure in one day though :rolleyes: keep the laughter coming we wouldnt stay quit without it would we !!!!

  • He probably wasn’t too good with measuring either. I just started a new thread for jokes. Let’s see if the people here are ok with it.

    Have a great day

  • Is this the time lost while stood around in the cold smoking or time lost to life being shortened?

    I've got one for you...Imagine if a new super bug threatened to kill 2000 people a year. Imagine the slight panic we would all feel. How can we avoid it happening to us...We'd do our best no doubt.

    The stats say 2000/week die from smoking, 2000, the horror.

    Fingers crossed we have all escaped in time :)

  • Wow........ thats a stat I never heard, fingers crossed is right. I think I will cross my toes as well defrog. Thanks for sharing
