Pardon?

Just back from a birthday bash (not mine, that was months ago). A quick browse of the news for today's antismoker lunacy and...

Passive smoking makes you deaf.

The drones will believe it. They will not notice that smokers aren't all deaf. They will not recall all those decades where most people smoked and deafness was not endemic. They will not realise that the article doesn't even claim that smoking makes you deaf. No, only passive smoking does that.

So if I don't want to go deaf, I'd better keep smoking. If the antismokers go deaf then I see no problem with that at all. They don't listen anyway. If only passive smoking could also make them mute.

Meanwhile, the BBC have screened the Stony Stratford outing. The antismokers have decided to fall back and regroup but they'll be back. In another town, another time, they will try this ridiculous new idea again.

They will also ensure that nobody can see the real 'data' behind this 'research' by pretending they are too important to answer FOI requests. A trick they learned from another set of scammers. It's going to leak, guys. You know it's all going to leak one day. Someone is going to be so disgusted at what their colleagues are doing that they will have to blow the lid on the fakery taking over science.

There must be one honest scientist left in those establishments.

Maybe, like you, the honest ones have left and now work for themselves?

As a smoker, should I be proud that I wield such power over a person's health? I think I might change my name to God.

Mind you, I was blamed by my husband's consultant to the cause of hubby's heart attack a few years ago. Never mind that hubby ate crap all the time, never exercised and was extremely overweight. And his job was causing huge amounts of stress. All that had nothing to do with it, apparently.
It was my fault.

I might believe this research if it could be guaranteed that none of these deaf passive smokers had ever used an MP3 player with headphones! Recent research showed that probably over 50% of youngsters have impaired hearing due to these devices.

Single acts of tyranny said...

As a fourteen year old, I was sternly warned something quite different made you deaf. That theory may have been tested to destruction by any number of teenagers.

I also grew up with both mum and dad smoking players navy cut and remarkably can still hear a mouse at 100 paces.

single cats of tyranny, i was always led to understand that speaking out-of-turn made one deaf - mainly due to the inevitable bouts of ear-boxing which the offence precipitated.
