I was making progress up the steepest hill in my neck of woods (Crystal lake road in Crystal Springs, OH) and doing great. That is, until I started smelling skanky cigarette smoke. I mean a lot of cigarette smoke!
Someone & their friends was out on their front porch & all were smoking. I darn near gagged to death, bcuz' this hill isn't an ordinary hill. I'm not sure how steep it is over the long span, but i hate smelling someone else's trench-mouth stench when I am at wide-open throttle and feel like Im getting nowhere!:mad2:
Just a rant.
Offer your opinions.

You've got a heck of a sense of smell if someone smoking outdoors off the side of the road on their front porch can get to you like that!

Personally I have a very good sense of smell and I would probably smell the smoke as well. But it cant be as bad as rotting skunk or oppossum along the road. DAMN DRIVERS AND THEIR STEEL DEATH MOBILES!

I was in a diner in Bowman, North Dakota, and the waitress came over and nearly knocked me out. She smelled like she had gone into a really small enclosed space, maybe a closet, then lit a couple of cartons of cigarettes on fire, and stayed inside until they burned out. The stench was so overwhelming, that is the only reasonable explanation.

Try riding the local bus during the time the homeless people are heading to the shelter. All you can smell is cig smoke and vodka.

When I turn 90, I'm going to start smoking again.
I wonder if you can deep-fry a cigarette
I'm gonna start smoking crack at 90.

That's funny, I can smell burning weed a half mile away.

I thought that Vodka didn't have a smell. That is why alcoholics drink it. Undetectable.
If you drink enough of it it has a smell.
