The Stats That Broke The Camels Back

I got up one morning last week, and turned on my usual morning talk radio background noise. My ears perked up when statistics of “new cigarette smokers” and “underaged cigarette smokers” were being spit out. I don’t know the numbers. I really don’t give a crap. I remember as a “Tween”, in middle school, taking a survey about cigarettes. Even as a 13 year old (or however old you are in 7th grade) I can remember the questions being very manipulative. The only way my tobacco tainted mind can describe them is “dead end questions”. Questions where the only choice that made any kind of sense, was the one that the test company wanted you to pick. I remember specific questions about “Joe Camel”. Remember Joe? The cartoon mascot of Camel cigarettes,that looked like a giant walking penis, smoked cigs all day, and because of that fact alone, had more p**** on his dick-face than he could handle alone..So a “band” of cartoon camel cocks was created to help him handle the load??That guy! The majoriy of the questions were outlined as followed......

You should also check the data summary of any study you read...it's common practice with these jokers to stretch the definition of "child" far beyond childhood.  I've seen one in particular that stretched their group of "new childhood smokers" to include anyone in the study age 29 or less, that had ever smoked a single cigarette.
