Nina From Canada, eh+The Armchair Spaceman commuting leads to obesity, in fact the invention of the garage door opener was the start of it, along with the so called tv dinner. back in the 1950s18h

The Armchair Spaceman+1+Nina From Canada, eh yeah.. ive long contested traffic pollution is the top cancer cause too.. it’s a far more realistic explanation as to why as non-smoking many joggers get lung cancer as do heavy smokers than ”passive smoking” is.
i blame the thirty years as a cycling commuter for my COPD over tobacco simply because the amount of traffic effluent and road dirt i’ve inhaled far exceeds the tobacco smoke ive consumed over my entire life. truth is since i started smoking at age 14 it was sporadic.. often weeks would pass without a smoke. it tended to be only if i was drunk i’d smoke a whole pack in a day rather than one or two each day, but not every day… i was clean for 7 years too.. but i cycled every single day.
the stroppy rebel in me started smoking regularly after i got told i had copd, and needed to stop smoking.. because at that point.. i wasn’t smoking ciggies at all… i was commuting.
not saying baccy is safe.. there IS benzine and nitro-samines in it.. just claiming, on chemical grounds that petroleum effluent is more dangerous ten-fold.8h

    +Nina From Canada, eh Yeah, they think its a right here too, and they think they have priority, but in some cases they do get treated different. a Driver can be late for work saying ”Traffic” and it’s all cool, but if you got a bus? no, You shoulda got an earlier one, so your pay’s docked.

    +The Armchair Spaceman Not even if the adult is driving the kid to work, which in Vancouver, child actors, eh. .. So I told that dad to get his own job and no, that does not count for the HOV lane any more than pregnant women, which in American, they do in order to use traffic court to fight roe v wave.
