Banging on about the Smoking Ban

Shortest Ban Ever?
Various items of news.

Not often smokers hear any good news. So this is one to enjoy.

March 3,2011 CARACAS -- Venezuela’s Ministry of Health has annulled by decree an anti-smoking law which would have prohibited smoking in public places and offices of work a day after it was published. By contrast to the US, Canada, Europe and Asia, Venezuela is one of the few countries that still allowed smoking in a wide variety of public places, restaurants, bars, nightclubs and stadiums.

A day after the anti-smoking law was printed in the Official Gazette, the annulment resolution was published in the Official Gazette. All laws must be published in the government's Official Gazette to be official. The text read: “to declare the absolute annulment of the resolution of environments free of smoke identified by number 014 and the date of February 24.” No motive or explanation was given for the sudden annulment.

The second item of news, via Bishop Hill, is that the chief executive of National Grid has said that, thanks to increasing reliance on wind turbines, permanently available electricity may become a thing of the past.

rolling blackouts

I'd heard rumours along these lines a number of times, but I guess this makes it official. We're just going to have to "change our behaviour", it seems. Where did I hear that before?

So, all because of non-existent global warming, there are going to be rolling electricity blackouts in 10 years time. Or maybe earlier.

Can't see many people liking this much, somehow.

And finally, this via Dave Atherton on Facebook.


According to Dr. Karen Weatherby, a gerontologist and author of the study, gawking at women’s breasts is a healthy practice, almost at par with an intense exercise regime, that prolongs the lifespan of a man by five years.

She added, "Just 10 minutes of staring at the charms of a well-endowed female, is roughly equivalent to a 30-minute aerobics work-out."

I think I, ...erm, already knew this. But good to see it 'scientifically proven', of course. No need to get a rowing machine or anything stupid like that. A year's subscription to Penthouse or Playboy (or both) should do the trick.

After 6 moths of Broken marriage, my husband left me with two kids, I felt like ending it all, i almost committed suicide because he left us with nothing, i was emotionally down all this while. Thanks to a man called Dr Aisabu of Aisabu temple which i met online. On one faithful day, as I was browsing through the internet, I came across several testimonies about this particular man. Some people testified that he brought their Ex lover back, some testified that he restores womb,cure cancer,and other sickness, some testified that he prayed to stop divorce and get a good paid job so on. He is amazing, i also come across one particular testimony, it was about a woman called Shannon , she testified about how he brought back her Ex lover in less than 2 days, and at the end of her testimony she dropped his email. ( After reading all these, I decided to give it a try. I contacted him via email and explained my problem to him. In just 48hours, my husband came back to me.
