    That seems like one of the made up neo-folk wisdom things.

    They'd be trumpeting that from everywhere if it were established.

    They say the same thing about clove cigarrettes.

    I am pretty sure that within certain tolerances it doesn't really matter what you're smoking, the burning produces such a panoply of chemicals that a fair whack are going to be carcinogenic plus the particulate matter is bad for your lungs and has similar risks assosciated
    The complex heterogenous mixture that combustion produces is incredibly dependent on the combustant.
    We have not defined the makeup of weed smoke.
    We can't say anything definitively either way.

    that it's super bad for you to inhale smoke is pretty clear though

    exactly how bad, and exactly why, is not known

    Also were having a HELL of a time finding cute nerd diapers for babby Thunderlord.

    Although I am planning on buying her a jersey onesie with Thunderlord on the back.

    https://www.honest.com/baby/honest-diapers Look at comic book print.

    Oh I mean reuasable, fuck disposables

    Really? I could never do cloth diapers. New born poop is so gross and liquidy I can't imagine it coming out easily.

    certain kinds of smoke yes
    it is super bad for you to inhale several different smokes that are each unique in their makeup

    Well that was kind of a terrible phone screen interview. It felt like a sequence of some guy's gotcha questions rather then an effort to determine if I could accomplish basic tasks on Linux.

    Knowing that apparently the guy before walked away after a second round interview and that makes me a bit wary even if I get a callback.

    It is true that the US government is horrific in the Marvel universe. One of the benefits of the Ultimate universe is they could be more deliberate about how the horrible things happen, vs just the US senate wanting genocide.

    We'll use disposables for the first 2-4 weeks then we only use them when we are out.

    We couldn't do FULL cloth diapering that's too much work.

    Don't smoke. Do go the doctor regularly.
    The good news is that every day you don't smoke is good for you!

    After 10 years your risk of developing particular drop down to the same level as someone who never smoked (for a non-exhaustive list of risks)

    also that money adds up

    I had a patient once that smoked 3 packs a day that told me he couldn't afford his life-saving heart medication.

    $450 a month on cigs

    ai ya

    In Australia it is more than that.

    The tarrifs/sin taxes/excises on cigarrettes put them at something like 23 squids a pack.

    Which, admittedly is Australian funny money, so at current exchange rates it's something like 18 US ducks a pack

    So, at three packs a day that's a shed load a month. $2K AUD

    The terrible cheap ones I smoke at the moment are about $17 for a 25 pack.

    Christ

    just grow your own stuff at that point

    i have no idea what the laws are regarding growing tobacco

    i'm assuming it's a restricted substance?

    Registration wasn't supposed to be a big deal. Just a confidential list.

    The flaw is that the terms of the act weren't made explicit. Therefore different writers had different opinions about it.

    Like, that would have been a nice ending to Civil War #1: The text of the bill in its entirety, so you can actually debate it.

    Super Gulags are naughty though.

    How is it different than the raft though? The wrecking crew robs a bank. The Avengers beat them up. The wrecking crew gets put in the raft. No trial. They stay there with power cancelling restraints until they break out in a few months, and that's all there is to it.

    It's mentioned in a number of places that trials happen. It's just often the Wrecking Crew do something stupidly public so the prosecute has a pretty easy case and they plea it out.

    @Eddy The phone call between Orin and Hal (the one where Hal is clipping his toenails) is just an absolutely amazing piece of writing. I basically sat there with my mouth hanging open after I finished reading it. What a beautiful everything about how that was presented and what it was saying.

    Honestly, the heroes are as guilty as the villains half the time. Remember when Reed kidnapped all their villains and put them into stasis? Villians get captured and held for study too. Basically, its the wild west when it comes to the rights of super powered people.

    yup, server admin stuff.

    minimum installed footprint, it's how pretty much everything in linux is controlled. Usually bash topics also cover standard gnu tools so you have some ideas about how to *nix without the need for libraries and such

    Yeah, it's a plot point a number of times. For super villains they often do it via closed circuit video systems. It's just not a common storyline for superhero comics so it doesn't come up that often.
