Saw a sign said, "No Smoking Allowed". Told the fella I appreciated being allowed to not smoke, but I believed I'd go ahead and light up...

Did anyone light up the straw bales? I'm alway afraid of that with high volume firing after seeing it happen one time.

I'm regularly in factories in Chicago where welding is taking place 24/7. Clouds of weld smoke hang in the air constantly, and people are regularly treated for hot metal fever. Additionally, synthetic coolants and chlorinated oils are turned to foul steam on the tips of red hot cutting tools, and the bacteria that live in the coolant tanks bring new meaning to the term 'Rancid'.

But you can't smoke, because, of course, you don't want to damage your lungs.

We are completely surrounded by the very worst kind of morons that the creator saw fit to endow with breath. They are our punishment for any number of infractions.

WV: Humph. As God is my witness.

Gerry,

Nope. Not even the MG42.


Og,

Here, of course, it was that smoking is bad for your health... when you're surrounded by hay bales and black powder. ;)

Speaking of Smoking......OK, I'll stop!

BTW, do you know that when I come to your site, I keep getting these weird Google Server Errors covering up some of your posts? Only been occurring the last couple of days, and it's not happening anywhere else I go. It's probably just the Internet Czar doing some Beta testing for future use against the Wookie Suiters, but I figured you might want to have your IT Dept. check it out.

The fire extinguishers for recalcitrant smokers, then? ;-)

The Seecamp Pistol manufacturing facility has the circle-slash-pistol "no guns allowed" signs up all over the shop. That Larry Seecamp is a funny guy!

I suppose it depends on why you are smoking. Lighting up and inhaling tobacco smoke? Ohh, you just made Baby Bloomberg cry!

Smoking because you put a beef brisket over some hickory? Oops - still made baby Bloomberg cry!

Smoking because you just fired off a bunch of lead downrange? Oh, no, you just made Ba-

Screw it. Baby Bloomberg is going to cry regardless.

The State of Texas has a regional trash pit site out in the middle of nowhere about nine miles east of Alpine. Lest somebody some number of miles away be afflicted by second-hand smoke, there are the usual "No Smoking" signs.

Q: Against whom should citations for noxious smoke be written, given the millions of acres of range fires we've had?

No smoking *on the firing line* makes sense as a safety thing.

Not because smoking is bad for your lungs, but because it's a distraction.

(And 'cause those haybales are flammable.)
