Quoted from 1974DeltaQueen:
Cigarettes killed millions and that tar they left behind on the cabinets isn't appealing to me . I never smoked but my entire family did.
But I'm the one who got cancer .. They didn't . I stopped eating natural foods because I heard people were dying of natural causes
Agree on the nasty tar stains left on pin cabinets (yes, it's tar. NOT nicotine!), but the wheel has killed more people than just about anything else in history. Banning DDT has also killed millions. Not that I smoke (an occasional stogie is nice), and I think smokers are their own worst enemies (generally they think the world is their ashtray), but it IS a legal substance, and people are free to make their own decisions as to what they consume or choose not to. My late brother smoked cigarettes his whole adult life, and was rarely ever sick. He died at 62 of a rare disease that had nothing to do with his smoking. Who knows who gets cancer and for what reason. I think the totally unreported disaster at the Fukushima nuclear plant in Japan will result in many thousands if not millions of cancer cases worldwide. Yeah, natural foods. Ask Ewell Brenner(?) about that. My favorite bumper sticker of all time read, "Eat Well, Live Right, And Die Anyway!" BTW, I don't think cigarette burns or carvings give games "character". I think it detracts from their cosmetic beauty and diminishes their value as collectables.
