No, and not just because of the health issues. The people who do it look sloppy and unapproachable. It's like sophisticated farting

If you're going to have a bad habit, you might as well have one that looks cool at least (looking and being cool have a fine distinction.)

I think the next debate I partake in might be about how cool smoking is. Any thoughts?

The only debate I see is between "kinda cool" and "really cool."

I see merits on both sides.

These people don't smoke on camera and are still the coolest people ever.

Or lose the race to rats
Get caught in ticking traps
And start to dream of somewhere
To relax their restless flight
Somewhere out of a memory of lighted streets on quiet nights..."

Why is smoking cool?

Is it the tar in the lungs, the deadly toxins, the cancer, the reduced years of life, or the 'image'?

Honestly, at no point in my life have I ever thought smoking was cool. I just don't get it.

Does it have something to do with the dramatic lighting effect caused by the smoke around your face?

It's probably the "shock value" and the fact that you irritate other people.

That's interesting, I expected much less people would agree that smoking "is cool."

Smoking what, is the question.

Smoking a hookah over spirits is quite cool. Much cooler with hot chicks.

Smoking gang can come off as pretty damned cool, unless you can't take the harshness of the smoke or the way it makes you feel causes you to freak out

Smoking coke, crack, or tobacco, though, just isn't cool.

It doesn't look cool, it doesn't feel cool... I mean, anything that requires cartoons or cowboys to sell is likely quite uncool.

I smoke MCs and bboys.
There is an art, it says, or rather, a knack to flying. The knack lies in learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss. " Clearly, it is this second part, the missing, which presents the difficulties.

I was really just being sarcastic. In reality I'm actually an incredibly self righteous former smoker.

It's the aestheticism of it. It's how it looks and not the things it causes that makes it cool.

Smoking in of itself isn't cool per say. But people who smoke are one hundred more times approachable and more fun to be around than anal retentive stick in the mud non smokers. You walk into a room of non smokers and light up you may as well have leprosy. Walk into a room with a couple of smokers, it's hey hows it going come on in. Then the anal retentive ahole non smoker comes in and ruins everything for everyone.
It's not your views that divide us, it's what you think my views should be that divides us.

If you think I will give up my rights and forsake social etiquette to make you "FEEL" better you are sadly mistaken

If liberal democrats would just stop shooting people gun violence would drop by 90%

Completely agree. Cancer loves company. Wait, that's not how it goes...

You're overlooking it, I think.

Smoking LOOKS cool, but that doesn't make smoking cool in an of itself.
There is an acute distinction between anesthetics of looking cool and the status of being cool. No, smoking does not make you cool, but according to House MD, it makes you look 30% cooler.

I've found that a relaxing night with some good friends and fine cannabis to be a bit of both worlds of cool, however.

To distinguish the coolness of an act from its appearance is to fundamentally misunderstand how something can be regarded as cool in and of itself. Coolness (as a state) is predicated upon an -outward- appearance which may be regarded as cool, because coolness exists only in the surface of things, and only in the surface of things can things (or, as in this case, activities) be cool in and of themselves.

There is an acute distinction between anesthetics of looking cool and the status of being cool.

Those persons who distinguish looking cool from being cool most likely make such a distinction because they, themselves, are not cool. There are ways to remedy that, naturally. Smoking is among the first options that comes to mind... I mean, come on! Joe Camel was the man!

No, smoking does not make you cool, but according to House MD, it makes you look 30% cooler.

At least we can agree that House MD is an appropriate source through which coolness may be evaluated.

Rock on.
