Watch closely. Kitty went Down. :D I think the kitty was hoping for better traction to jump further. Oops, slipped.

It's more likely that the flat colour of the wall caused it to misjudge the distance.

Given feline ability to open up like a furry parachute and general springiness, I doubt it was injured in any case.

I can confirm this due to extensive research in my childhood

Unfortunately they compliment eachother so well! It's hard to fathom a pint without a cigarette.


I completely stopped smoking after seeing my face in the mirror when I had a party with a gypsy community in hungary :D
Could also have been the bootleg booze :roll:


Edit: also something more useful;

I'm probably building this in a while;

A replica of JSR's supressed hybrid with a removable stock.
It can be completely taken apart, that way it will fit in my guitar bag :)
This will take very little to no machined parts.
In school I have to spend all of my time on school projects so I won't be able to build my larger brain farts :P

I hope it doesn't blow up in my face :roll:
It will be made out of 30 mm OD 25 mm ID seamless steel tubing, with a pvc endcap and stainless steel electrical connectors.

I (almost literally) came across this yesterday, very inspirational :D

booooo...

If you really want to quit, change your routine. I used to roll a cigarette first thing as soon as I got into the car for example. Now it doesn't even cross my mind. Before you light one, ask yourself if you really *need* it, or if you're just doing it out of habit.

I've been/was a social smoker since late 2007, buying a few packs a year for whenever I was at a house party/clubbing just because the nicotine 'high' complements drinking and being drunk so extraordinarily well. But not once in my life have I felt the need to smoke when I'm sober.

During last summer I would almost be sharing a pack with a friend once a week as I went clubbing a lot but now that I don't really bother with clubs that much I haven't had a cigarette since ~July and I've never felt I've missed them or needed to smoke them.

Not sure whether it's because of my strict attitude towards when I allow myself to smoke that meant I never got addicted to them or if I'm just fortunate, probably the former. I think if you decide to smoke when you're sober, you are at risk of getting addicted. Like JSR was saying, routine probably has something to do with it. I would smoke only when I was drinking so if you allow yourself to smoke when sober, you're at risk of it becoming part of every day routine.

I had a girlfriend who smoked, that helped me cement the idea in my mind never to smoke sober (you smell like sh|t). I also hated the (lack of?) taste in your mouth you wake up with after smoking lots of ciggs, truly horrible.

I see we haven't mentioned the C word yet. Spudfiles must be getting older, as we all become apathetic towards it.

Fine, I'll say it.

Commitment.
