I was reading Frank’s latest this morning and underneath was an interesting comment.
That in turn led me to another link which got me thinking.
We have all heard about second hand and third hand smoke. There is debate over whether fourth hand smoke is the sight of a cigarette or just thinking about smoking [both of which are of course deadly]. However all these levels exist in our three dimensional world.
What about smoking in another dimension?
I have read many times about ghosts and spectres “appearing in a haze” or shimmering or whatever so maybe these effects are caused by our apparition having a crafty fag? Who is to say that our world isn’t inhabited by spirits, all puffing away merrily? Certainly I wouldn’t be averse to nipping into a pub and having a pint and a pipe even after I am dead so what’s to say that others don’t [or didn’t] have the same idea? After all, pubs do advertise themselves as “licensed to sell wines and spirits”?
The Tobacco Control Industry hasn’t addressed this little problem yet. I can hardly wait to see how they cope with this little problem, for problem it is. Will pubs in the future only be allowed serve wines? Will smoking ghosts be shown the door only for them to drift back in through the walls? Will they be fined, and if so how will the fine be collected?
Interesting times indeed ……..
