Does anybody feel this way?
You: "then don't go to coachella anymore"
end of conversation? OKAY!
Does anybody feel this way?
Grammar* I can tell I'm dealing with a genius, so I'm just gonna end this.
the legitimacy of this argument was just cranked up a few notches when grammar was brought into it
I thought overall there was less cigarette smoking this year. I wasn't around the Sahara enough but I'm not surprised since doing drugs and smoking compliment each other. I think that should be expected around there. Personally, I'm proud to say I didn't smoke a cigarette at all...at least that I could remember which is a huge improvement. So you're welcome.
We'll ban smoking at Coachella when stupid people like you stop abusing their poor Caps Lock buttons
Also, to expect people to not smoke cigarettes at a setting like this is yourself up for a lot of bitterness and anger.
And for the record, I do not like cigarettes, cigarette smoke, and and I specially dislike all of the cigarette butts that get stuck to my legs and butt.
My daughter and I carried an empty water bottle or can to dump our cigarette butts into, we would also pick up any extras we found in the area we were sitting in. I hate going to sit down in the grass and seeing it littered with cigarette butts and water bottles. My daughter was amazed by how clean the grounds were each morning when we went back in. I told her there were little coachella fairys that come in at night and clean up after all the slobs.
Aside from the couple behind us at Pulp trying to get us to give up our spot by blowing smoke directly at us (didn't work), I didn't really deal with a ton of inconsiderate smokers. Most were blowing the smoke up, and the wind seemed to work in my favor. If I was bothered, I moved.
And I will see your cigarette butts and raise you wads of gum on the ground. Jesus. Talk about inconsiderate. Swallow it. Dig a hole and bury it. Or, you know, find a trash can and spit it out, you lazy shits.
My name is Becca. Hi.
I'll stop smoking cigarettes when you stop puffing on homeless dicks.
No one has ever said anything to me about smoking. I would put it out or move on if someone honestly had a concern. The butts issue is something to address, though I'm not sure how. I feel like I'd start a fire by putting my butts into a cardboard trashcan. A 50 gallon drum filled with sand? I don't know.
2 oz blended whiskey
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1/2 tsp powdered sugar
1/2 slice lemon
Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.
I don't normally smoke, but between the crappy sleep and my exhausted legs, cigarettes were the only thing that kept me going to the last sets of the night. Cheaper and longer lasting than Red Bull (to me, at least).
I always try to blow up, and put butts out on my shoes to the trash can as much as possible (butts don't biodegrade well). I must say, though, this festival was a lot cleaner than Smokeout. Stoners are super lazy...
I never even go into a crowd, anywhere. If there's not at least 10 feet of empty space between me and jerkoffs like the OP I get agitated and find it difficult to resist the urge to ash in their mouths. Sometimes if you don't like what's going on in the crowd, you should take it upon yourself to find somewhere you'd rather be.
I agree with the OP here. For all the people that are talking shit to the OP and rubbing it in his/her face, those are the same inconsiderate bastards that are blatantly blowing their smoke right at people while standing so close to them. It is outdoors so banning smoking would be hard and it's probably too much to expect all these LA douchebags to be a little considerate and not smoke near people in close quarters. Most smokers are inconsiderate in the first place and the need to get the nicotine fix will outweigh any common courtesy, so they will smoke regardless of how close they are to someone else. The solution is to come up with your own solution. Personally, I wear a thick t-shirt around my neck (kinda like a scarf) and then whenever someone lights up near me, I drape the shirt over my nose/mouth. I also try to fart as much as humanly possible when I'm standing near a smoker....I kinda feel like I can get away with any bad habit and the smoker can't say anything because they realize how hypocritical they'd be.
You're making absurdly broad generalizations about the inhumanity and lack of empathy possessed by all smokers. Anyone who generalizes like that always has really ugly genitals.
I only smoked about 3 or 4 cigs a day this year. If I was up front or in the middle of a crowd I would hold it as far above my head as possible and blow the smoke up. Though I did have a few moments of weakness. During Dre and Snoop a few 14 yr old girls were trying to claw and bite their way in front of me, had to fight the urge to put my cig out on their fucking neck.
