The Eagles once warbled a fine little ditty called ‘Hotel California‘, in which a hapless traveller is taken in by a hotel that seems very nice from the outside, but which is a hell of punishment for any kind of pleasure inside.
It never occurred to me to wonder why they chose California for this totalitarian nightmare.
Now you cannot smoke in your own home if it adjoins another, because second hand smoke is magically able to pass through walls. Hey, why not? We already know it seeps into my keyboard from my fingers and emerges from your screen, so passing through walls must surely be easy.
You cannot smoke outside anywhere either. Unless you are on the way somewhere and continually moving -so any smokers dumb enough to live there will soon be the fittest people on the planet.
Asked if there was opposition to the ordinance, Woodbury said there was hardly any. ‘We have a very low percentage of smokers in the county,’ she said.
I’m not surprised. If I had to travel through there, I’d go around. There is nothing on this Earth that would convince me to go there, much less live there. I wonder what their percentage of self-important, scared-of-shadows, pompous whining morons would be? Here’s a thought, why don’t we ship all ours over there and take their few remaining smokers over here? Then all they have to do is disconnect from the nicotine and alcohol-soaked Internet and they can live their lives in cowering submission to whatever they are told to be scared of next.
We really need to send ‘Roger’, and soon –

Rebecca, Birmingham,! No you are the idiot you selfish poisoner, nobody mentioned through walls, I know, it comes in through the windows, and doors when they open their apartment door their smoke follows them into the hallway it then gets sucked through my letter box.A double whamy. Its sucked into clean warm air always the first port of call.Science its called equilibrium.Example my neighbours smoke in my block from the balcony the smoke then is drawn directly into every window and into my balcony to my door. It stinks the first clue! It affects my health and breathing this is not rocket science its fact. People don’t complain about things that are not there except nutty smokers because of all the holes in their brains another fact, that’s why smokers are so aggressive and violent and unable to reason or have empathy for others. If the smoke did not poison people or stink nobody would be talking about this. But it does.
Isn’t he just the archetypal drone? He’s even making up his own facts and changing the nature of the universe by the simple expedient of saying ‘fact’ after every insane ramble. Just like his masters in tobacco control and the same idiots in alcohol control. Just say it and it becomes real. It doesn’t matter if someone with an actual functioning brain points this out. Once you have said ‘fact’ it is a fact, immutable and forever. Anyone who disagrees is in the pay of Big Whatever and is wrong.
There is no point giving real facts to these drones. It wastes your time and confuses the drone.
Oh, it’s not just California. These zombies are all over the place now. Just like Hollywood zombies, you cannot reason with them because they have no functioning brain and they just keep shuffling on, driven by base instinct.
The only thing that will kill them is smoke. Lots and lots of smoke.
So fire ’em up, folks, unless you want the zombies to get you.
