We’re all familiar with the warnings on packs of cigarettes from the surgeon general, but here is something the surgeon general may want to examine.
In the deployed environment, you can only smoke in designated smoking areas. Primarily this rule is setup so that smokers don’t accidentally set fire to their rooms or workspaces.
Being a non-smoker, this does not affect me in the least. However, when I see something like this smoking area, I wonder how we manage to fight wars without the enemy heckling us.
Haven’t figured it out yet? Remember when I said the military doesn’t want us to set fire to our workspaces and rooms? Apparently that doesn’t apply to the WOODEN smoking shack you’re standing in while lighting your cigarette with an open flame.
Yes, I work for the strongest (and dumbest) military in the world.
