in thread Do you smoke tobacco?

Well, while arden may and probably was justified in his action on one level, I personally think DrHyde has a point and that you quite frankly dont. Why should it make a difference if its a cigarette or a cigar or a mobile phone or a piece of jewelery or maybe their car? Do you drive? I dont. I never learned and I just might never learn at all. As such I consider the vast majority of car use to be pollution that I shouldnt have to suffer. So is it acceptable for me to jump on to your car and smash all of its windows in with a baseball bat, tear out all of the hosing and slash the tires, and then pour gasoline over my head and light it just because you parked in my drive-way? (Which is a no vehicle zone.) Because that is the equivelency you are arguing. You're saying that "just because its a cigarette its ok", which is a big heap of steaming dung.

So if anybody in this argument has poured gas on their head its you. And I bet if or when someone does punch you in the nose for being a moron you'll care a lot more than you pretend in this post. Having your nose broken ain't fun.

    Yes, please. I'd buy a new car just to watch the show.

    Did you just compare a cigarette to a CAR?!?!? It was a cigarette. They cost less than a bottle of water. The only point i was trying to prove is that Dr Hyde is an asshole for throwing his macho weight around. Now you go and show your ass too.

    Did you have a bad day when you posted this? because this node has been here for a long time, and more importantly had nothing to do with you. Sounds like you are looking for a fight. I hope you don't end up with a broken nose yourself. If you did have a bad day, i hope getting this out has made you feel better, because i don't want to see you get a broken nose.

[stevieb]: it's a reminder to re-inforce it :P
[atcroft]: james28909: That particular questions was a bit of trick, actually (depending on the country you are in). More interesting is, if you are trying to subtract from an epoch time, for instance, you might have to consider when/if DST occurs for a location,
[atcroft]: because you may have to adjust the number of seconds you change from an epoch from 86400 (not to mention leap seconds)....
