That's the funniest thing I've ever heard.

Hey guys! Let's go to the bar tonight, get close to a guy smoking a cigar, and second hand smoke!
Cool!

Seriously, I hope you were joking.

People don't just smoke in bars.

true, my only real beef is here is bars and restaurants. and if parents bring their kids into the theoretical smoking section, thats their mistake.

Do you not know what second hand smoking is? It is when you recieve the same affects of smoking but they are not as great. When you second hand smoke you still are at risk of getting lung cancer.

Smoking and non-smoking sections in bars and restaurants are poorly organised and inneffective. The vast majority of bars/restaurants will have a smoking/non-smoking section. Even if you sit in the non-smoking section you're still at risk from secondary smoke. Do you wish to deny people the right to a healthy meal out every once in a while? Or is it more important to let people kill themselves?

i agree smoking sections could be improved, but like i said before, a little bit every now and then isn't going to kill you or even have a noticeable effect. unless you're eating out every night, theres not a real danger. and where i live, NO restaurants and very few bars have smoking sections, i think its bad for business.

our city recently passed a law that there's no smoking in any public establishment that admits people under 18. It's nice being able to go to a restaurant and not choking down second hand smoke, but the bars are horrible. Mind you, it's a bar, so you have to expect it.

Deopends on what she looks like. Nasty habit, but women look so sexy doing it.

Seriously, though. A bar is a bar. It's like some comedian said. I don't remember exactly, so I'll paraphrase: "So I'm in this bar. I'm getting puke drunk, talking ****, trying to get with some chick for a little unprotected sex, then some ******* comes up to me and blows SMOKE in my face. What's the world coming to?"

Yeah, I didn't say it exactly right, but you get my point.

And you know, I got in a fight with a friend of mine who used to be a cook. Don't work in places that allow smoking if you don't like it. It cripples economy in a municipality and certainly ruins the overall in take of a business.

I don't smoke, I hate smokers, but there are coffee house, lounge bars around here that host poetry readings and open mic nights that had an image, a feel, a vibe, and its not the same anymore.

Smokey jazz lounge is a staple of american society. So here at least, i'd say we need it back.
