Snips and snails and puppy-dog tails, if you believe the latest desperate rubbish masquerading as ‘science’.
Once more we have 4000 chemicals in every cigarette. It’s a wonder anyone can pick one of these things up. They must weigh a ton, what with all that tobacco leaf as well as the stockroom of a medium sized chemist in every little paper tube.
This is the really bizarre part –
From nail polish remover to rat poison, one website has revealed some of the most shocking cigarette ingredients.
And there we were thinking that they were made out of leaves. No, according to a bunch of gibbering baboons from North Carolina, they are brewed by witches under a full moon with eye of newt and wing of bat, polish of nail and poison of rat. High-pitched cackle time.
These are not ‘ingredients’. You cannot add carbon monoxide or butane to anything because they are gases and will just float away. These are compounds found in… just about anything. Carbon monoxide is the result of an incomplete combustion and the amount you’ll get from a cigarette is as nothing compared to what a dodgy boiler can pump out.
The graphic is nothing short of comical. Butane is billed as ‘lighter fluid’ and illustrated with a picture of lighter fluid and a Zippo. Hexamine is billed as ‘barbecue lighter’ and illustrated with a butane-powered barbecue lighter. So if butane in trace quantities is deadly, what about all those drones holding a canister of it when they light their barbecues? They have just poisoned all of the food.
Stearic acid is indeed in candle wax so anyone who lights a candle is certain to die at once. It’s also in beeswax and will be found in honey. It is likely to be in tobacco because it is a natural product formed by living cells so it’s in everything. It’s in you. Now. In far, far greater quantities than in any cigarette.
Ammonia is billed as toilet cleaner. Who the Hell cleans toilets with ammonia? You’d pass out from the fumes. Ammonia is also a gas so cannot be an ‘ingredient’ of the witches brew the drones believe cigarettes are made of.
Methane. Sewer gas. Also the gas that comes out of your gas cooker and gas fire. You are heating your home and cooking your food on sewer gas, drones. Incidentally, methane, being a gas… oh never mind.
Acetic acid. Vinegar. So the drones fear vinegar, do they? File that one under ‘have plenty much fun with later’. If they believe tobacco contains vinegar,. wait until they hear how vinegar is made – by extracting it from tobacco plants. Ho ho ho.
Nicotine is indeed an insecticide but it’s not the one in those spray cans that can knock a fly out of the air in seconds. That stuff is much nastier. Still, if the drones believe it, then they’ll just have to stop spraying nicotine around when plagued by flies, won’t they? They can be convinced that it’s much healthier to just let the flies stay. I am certain of that.
Cadmium and arsenic are elements found pretty much everywhere in trace amounts. They are not deliberately added to each cigarette.
Paint. WTF? Paint? What colour? Dulux or Crown? They most likely mean the ink used to colour the filter end of the paper. Paint? How far can you push the stupidity and still have the drones accepting it? So far, in my experience, there is no limit but even I had not thought of paint. I think they should be told it’s tartan paint, produced in Scotland by dissolving kilts in whisky.
My cigarettes just contain leaves. I don’t add any of those things. All of them are likely to be present (except paint) because all of them are present in any leaf, anywhere, including lettuce, curly kale and hemlock. Even Popeye took in far more of those chemicals from his spinach than from his pipe.
Methanol as rocket fuel, eh? Only in Hillbilly country. If methanol was any good as rocket fuel then NASA will be kicking themselves. It’s a damn sight cheaper than the fuel they’ve been using. Just think, they could have gone to the moon on moonshine. Yee-ha! “That’s one small (hic) step for a man, and… that’s as far as I’m going.”
If there are 4000 chemicals in one gram of cigarette then they are present at 1/4000th of a gram each in a cigarette that contains no tobacco leaf at all, just chemicals. Real cigarettes are mostly cellulose and starch.They are biodegradable, vegetarian and unsalted. All the things that are supposed to be so good these days.
And yet a few parts per million of cyanide is a cause for terror? Ever eaten almonds? Every one of these traces of death can scare an antismoker into a full trouser-soiling apoplectic fear-fest.
I say, do it. Every single one of their ridiculous claims can be turned around on their drones. Every one. Turn them back. If they fear barbecue lighter chemicals in tiny amounts, why are they buying barbecue lighters in concentrated form? If they fear toilet cleaner chemicals in trace amounts, why do they have bottles full of the deadly stuff in their homes? If methane is sewer gas, why are they cooking their dinner over it?
Every time you meet one of these drones, stay calm, be rational, and just make up any old shit you feel like saying. Terrify them with the things they have been conditioned to fear. They will believe it. They will believe anything.
That article proves it.
