Re: Smoking

Smoking was cool. Imagine James Dean and the Marlboro Man. The people most likely to call cigarettes "cancer sticks" are the smokers. Their philosophy is, "Who wants to live forever? As long as I'm doing what I live, I'm ready to die tomorrow."

Social Media is cool. Imagine YouTube celebrities. Who cares about tomorrow? The average attention span is too short to think of anything else.
