I've had smokers tell me that thier grand parents smoked 100 a day and lived to be in their nineties. That's a really crap reason for ignoring medical advice and continuing to smoke.

So it doesn't appear to have done your parents any harm (I'm willing to accept that it didn't). Just as some people are more prone to heart disease, some are more prone to develop lung cancer etc. some people are prone to develop ill health through excessive working hours.

Are you one of those people? I don't know. Am I one of those people? again I don't know, but I'm not willing to gamble my long term health on it. I reserve my reckless stupidity for other things (I'm over weight which doctors tell me is really bad for me and I drink strong black coffee which is also bad - you pays your money and you makes your choices)

Update: I've read this again and It's almost reads like I'm calling you recklessly stupid. I'm not, please don't take it that way. I'm trying to say that almost everyone makes "stupid" short sighted decisions with their health. Everyone's choices will be different.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
