A smokers look back in time


Well I need to admit to what appears to be one of modern society’s most carnal sins. I am a smoker. It seems that in western nations we are the most actively discriminated minority there is.

On July 1st all Victoria smokers were told we are no longer welcome in Pubs and Clubs. Well a beer and a smoke has always gone hand in hand for me so it is horrible to be sent outside in the cold to smoke. This last weekend it was about 5C outside where hundreds of drunk smokers were crowed on the streets and balconies fulfilling their additions.

Being stuck outside made me want to remember the good times. On that note it is time to view some of the best smoking ads ever made.

Thanks

Matt



"A winston tastes good like a smoke should"

"More doctors choose Camel"

"Thinking mans filter a smoking mans taste"

I have no idea what this one was about

"To a smoker its the taste of kent"

"SMOKE! SMOKE! SMOKE! (THAT CIGARETTE)"

And just to present both sides of the story here is a non smoking ad

Drink Driving Case Tomorrow

Ok I am very excited. As I mentioned a few months ago I lost my license for drink driving well tomorrow is the first hearing. I know that in the Victorian legal systems the chance of getting a result tomorrow is basically non existent.

It is far more likely that this will be the hearing to decide when the mention date will occur that decides when the motion date will be. A whole lot of money wasted on this stupid system just to get us nowhere. Oh well I am still excited because it will be the first step in the process over and done with.

I would like to also shout out my lawyer S. P. Hardy if you ever have any sort of traffic offenses in Victoria Australia you should check out his site http://www.trafficlaw.com.au it details everything you should do when handling it.

Thanks

Long time no Post

Ok well I need to say sorry. I had all of these good testing blogs planned and then work just ran away and became overly crazy. It has now been almost 2 months since the last blog. It was something that I was really enjoying and I want to keep doing it.

Watch this space there will be some more interesting content in the next few days
