Maybe the presidential scholar is acutely aware of her own mortality and figures the soothing effects of a cigarette at least makes the present moment better. Maybe the scholar just flat out doesn't give a shit of the consequences because not everything is worth caring about. Who knows!
#30, your statement doesn't make a lot of sense considering the two are synonyms of each other and mean the same thing.
Smoking shouldn't be a big deal unless you willingly subject other people to your second-hand smoke. Do what you want, but if I have to breathe in your nasty smoke because you smoke in a public place (like school) and have it affect my asthma and anybody else who may have breathing complications- then there's a problem. If smoking only hurt those who smoke it shouldn't matter. I wouldn't have been so rude about it, OP, (and the fact that you added her attire into it makes you a bit of an ass for assuming) but I at least get the smoking part of it.
#162 in an outside environment, secondhand smoke does nothing to you. and it dissipates after 10ft. Also, it's not a smoker's goal to subject you to it. It's not like they blow smoke directly into your face (and if they do then that's just rude and those people need to reevaluate their lives).
178 - 10 feet isn't all that much and unless the person is chain smoking your distance wouldn't need to last more than 5-10 minutes of your conversation. Either way it would be your choice to carry on the conversation or ask them to come back inside once they were through to continue the convo.
Everybody dies, and every one of us chooses the risks involved in everything we do, and whether those risks are worth the benefits. Smoking cigarettes increases the chance of getting lung cancer, eating red meat increases the chance of heart disease, alcohol increases the chance of liver damage, soda increases the chance of obesity and diabetes. We all do things we know are bad for us, and in the free world, we all have the right to make those decisions for ourselves. Making the choice to smoke is no worse than making the choice to drive fast, or drink alcohol, or eat processed junk food.
#167, lots of times people smoke in bus shelters (even though it's against the law here atleast), in crowded (children and family type) fairs, and lining pathways into schools and hospitals and such. In many of those situations it's hard to avoid it without walking in traffic. Also I've had many articles of clothing burnt from people being careless with their arms and not paying attention while chatting with friends and smoking (the walkways leading into my highschool were fenced in, about 6 feet wide and smokers would line both sides of the fence, leaving about a 1ft walkway).
That's not always the case, #167. Smoking can 100% be a trigger for asthma even outside. And I honestly couldn't care less if it's the smoker's intention to subject everyone else to it, because they do anyway. Knowing that doing something negatively affects the *health* of other people is a dick move and there is intent in it. If they don't mean to, go somewhere else. Designated smoking areas, fine. Anywhere else where people will be close enough to potentially be affected by it? I'm talking outside of malls/shops, in line, at parks, etc. No excuse, save for "being a dick".
@50 That sounds like me, I'm intelligent, I get good grades and have knowledge but I'm not very smart, I have limited social skills and don't have much common sense. So it's accurate for me to say that I'm not very smart or bright even though I'm fairly intelligent.
Why is everyone still calling the student a she? They said suck my dick so they are quite obviously male.
# 62 - No doubt that op was a pre judgmental dingle berry, but I feel both of them were wrong. Not saying I wouldn't do or say something similar, just enjoying a laugh and saying my thoughts. #73 We know why you didn't get the presidential grant .... Reading comprehension was 30 pct of the score huh?
Don't judge a book by it's cover.
That sucks op. Nobody who is a big part of the school should represent it poorly but alas it's free will that decides what to do.
