The Greaser's did it, and they were cool. Plus, check out these handsome Fellas: http://img199.imageshack.us...

If you're not already cool, smoking won't make you cool. If you smoke to look cool,your coolness points drop even further. Also, if smoking made you cool, then even this guy would be cool:

Yes, but would you deny your VERY OWN PRESISENT?! http://americandigest.org...
and JOHN TRAVOLTA?! http://sugajam.files.wordpress.com...
and OH MY GOD AGENT DANA SCULLY http://www.artofsmoking.com...
and of course, AMY WINEHOUSE http://i.dailymail.co.uk...
and this guy seems to love it. http://www.markandmercedes.com...

These guys are turning out fine, right? No one's harmed by smoking at all. And if your friend jumped off a cliff, wouldn't you bring a camera, look down, and consider jumping down yourself just to see what it's like? I would.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Let's be clear on a few things. First, the resolution implies a universal standard. In that case, anyone who smokes is to be considered cool, including anyone I might mention or describe throughout the debate. Second, the resolution does not specify what substance is being smoked. And third, people like John Travolta and Amy Winehouse are clearly not cool because they smoke, but because of their awesome hair! I submit that the following people are not cool:

* 14 year old girl who puts 10 pounds of lip gloss on and takes this for her I'm-so-bad-@ss MySpace default

[http://i.ehow.com...]

* Dirty, ugly d-bag who thinks he's the sh1t because he gets laid once every 2 months by whores with smelly vag

[http://i2.ytimg.com...]

* Closeted super Republican politician who solicits sex by tapping his foot in confession booths

[http://wwwimage.cbsnews.com...]

* Anorexic, insecure coke whore going through an identity crisis

[http://ayyyy.com...]

* This b1tch

[http://www.foundstuff.co.uk...]

* Here's another example of something I don't think is cool to smoke...

[http://4.bp.blogspot.com...]

(I mean, what's inside of there isn't the problem.)

Back to ye, Pro. Prove that smoking anything always makes you cool.

The Osama Bin Laden is an obvious Photoshop hoax. And please refrain from using bad language here and pictures of Peni-bongs, I want the kids to read this and learn.

hat 14-year-old "I'm really cool" MySpace picture might not be areal cigarrette, and she migh noteven smoke. Look at the stick, it's not even lit yet, and she doesn't have it all the way in her mouth.

That D-Bag? Looks like a musician more than a smelly fella looking for a good time.

Let's not bring your crazy liberal politics into this, I don't want to start talkng about antisemitism. Plus, so what if he's gay? And if he likes it in confession booths?

Lindsay Lohan is very sensitive right now, and very bisexual, just leave her alone right now. She's not involved here.

http://www.hahastop.com... need I say more? I will anyways.

Doesn't tis guy look like he's getting all the ladies? He looks like the drummer for H.I.M. http://pnsexplosion.com...

Since you're female, I'm sure you will apprediate this: OMFG BLARG EDWARD CULLEN http://wastedcelebrity.com...

And support the troops in Iraq, you get all the ladies you'd like: http://countenance.files.wordpress.com...

You want proof, you say, that Smoking Makes You cool?

To clarify, if my photoshoped photos (i.e. Osama) don't count as evidence, then neither do Pro's.

A recent report has shown that smoking tobacco and nicotine is the world's leading cause of death and disability -- more than HIV, AIDS, or famine. If AIDS isn't cool, then smoking isn't cool. At least with the transmission of HIV, you're either having sex or probably shooting heroin. Heroin gives you a high; smoking does not. Since the dangers of smoking are so high (cancer of the mouth, heart disease, etc.), then those who smoke are merely going so in an attempt to look cool. At least that's how/why they started smoking in the first place, thus negating their actual coolness.

Keep in mind what I brought up in R1 - smoking doesn't MAKE you cool. Not everyone who smokes isn't cool, but if they're cool, it's not because of their smoking. Also, like I said in R2, the resolution implies that smoking ALWAYS makes you cool. So, in order for Pro to win this debate, he would have had to prove that (1) Everyone who smokes is cool, and (2) Smoking alone can make anyone cool. If that's not enough to convince you that Pro's lost this debate, check out some of these not-so-nifty individuals:

I said I was done talking to you. Mind you, I'm not the one who has 2589 posts and lurks this site more than public. And the point of trolling is to piss someone off or annoy them. I think I've achieve that quite well, and you don't even realize it. Good bye.

The problem again, rapm, is that you're not funny and never were. Also, if we're so miserable, why do you keep coming back for more? Hahaha pathetic.

LMAO @ MikeLoviN
Nice fail at life bro. You think I don't know that? The only reason I exist here is to try and get some sort of humour onto this site. Everyone is suffering from a severe case of srs bsnss. Let's see, social life... oh, isn't that the thing I have that you lack of, and therefore pacify your depression by claiming someone you think is different then you lacks of? I hang out with friends almost everyday, and I have a girlfriend, but I would rather not explain what that is to you; you seem a little too naiive.

You guys just keep proving me right.

LMAO @ radioactivepotatoman... what a douche.

Not everyone is a troll without a life like you bud. Most people come here to actually have serious discussions every once in a while. If you only joined DDO to shoot your mouth off at people who actually have a reason to be here then you really need to rethink that sad thing you probably call a social life.

Waaaaah. Whaaaaah. Cry some more. The Peni-Bong did win you it. And, trust me, if you think you didn't take it seriously, you don't go on the internet much. And the second line in my comment was towards all the people who comment with "*adjusting monocle* I say, this PRO is just outlandishly incorrect! How dare he! He is no good debater, so he must be poor and Irish too." And I am pathertic how, again? By not taking a site on the internet seriously? I'm done talking to you, go cry.
