hi /eh/,
Last night i was watching some law around the world,and the law of smokes has attracted me to deeply. I find it a little bit incomplete.
All smoke laws speak about sell/buy cigarette for minor, but no one mentions about if an adult give a cigarette to a minor. Is it a crime or not?
Tell me about your country

Ok, but the problem is, if an adult give a cigarette to a minor it's not like buy or sell and if a minor can own a cigarette, who is in trouble? An adult only give a cigarette to a minor, the law only say buy/sell, and a minor smoke the cigarette and he can own it, so he can smokes, but he can't buy. So, who is in real trouble?

The closest analogy I've seen is liquor laws. There are localities where someone under the arbitrary age (and the international variation in legal drinking ages leads me to believe that every possible number is largely arbitrary) is allowed to drink in the presence of a legal adult who buys a drink for them.

The difference is that right now tobacco is perceived to be far worse than alcohol as far as intoxicants go. It's not unheard of to see a beer commercial and a PSA for a service to quit smoking all in the same commercial break.

Hello john.
Here in Finland, it is legal for a minor to posses and smoke cigarettes, but it is illegal to sell them any. The only person who can get in trouble is the adult buying cigarettes for a minor or the worker on the cash register, if he/she sells any cigarettes to a minor, even by accident.
The rule goes, that anybody, who looks under 30, must be asked to show his ID when buying cigarettes. It gets weird with alcohol. With alcohol, you need to be 18 to buy any, but if its stronger alcohol, like 40%, you need to be 20.
So if you first come and buy alcohol, while looking 18, you don't need to show any ID, but if you come back and buy some cigarettes, its a must.
In a bar, things work differently.
In a bar, anybody can buy cigarettes and even when your'e only 18, you can still buy strong alcohol(40%+)
BUT by law a cannot be sold alcohol, if it's for intoxication(If you want to get drunk).

What is also interesting is the "quit smoking" products. If a minor goes to a doctor and tells that hes addicted to tobacco, he can have a prescription for nicotine band-aids. There are also these nicotine free snus/snuff bags, that are only for adult, because they resemble the tobacco products. So its easier for a minor to get nicotine by a doctor that to quit smoking with nicotine free products.

I hope i didn't make too boring of a text, i'm still drinking my morning coffee and my brain isn't working on a full speed so i may have spoken something offtopic.
Yours truly
John

i really miss video stores.
we had blockbuster and hollywood video here. but they're gone now.
netflix and putlocker and amazon have more selection and you can get movies right away, but it's not even close to the same experience as driving out to the store and browsing around for a while for something cool or finding something random (or discovering someone already rented the movie you wanted and having to find something new), bringing the tape/dvd back to the car, picking up food and going home to watch the mysterious dvd with no cover and a weird summary. it doesn't sound that great at all typing it out, but it really was a great experience. man, i really miss going to video stores.
when i briefly lived in texas, there was a really great video store in austin that was really big and i think it even had two floors. it was really great.

.... you know what, i'm gunna look online to see if there are any video stores around here. hm... i suppose if i really wanna be old school i could try to find a phone book. but i don't know if we have one around. telephone booths/public phones aren't a thing in illinois anymore so i can't find one outside. hm.
anyways, that's what i'm going to do today.

i was never really into pinball, but my dad was. there's a little diner type place that had (maybe still has? i haven't been there in years) a pinball machine and he would always play while we were waiting for our food.
we used to go there all the time when i was kid.
i miss that. as i got older and he got worse at parenting, we got along less and less and drifted really far apart. after some really bad incidents that i still haven't forgiven him for, we just sort of lost everything we had as father and son.
i haven't seen my dad in a few years now that i think about it.

The laundromat near my place had soul blade in it, good fighter. It was next to a liquor store so people would drink and smoke in the laundromat. Open 24hrs, would go in late sometimes.

Today I drove to the ends of all the roads of Juneau.

There were signs saying it was the end of the road and some hiking trail heads, that is all I did.

it wasn't really that interesting. Its just trees and a dead end sign. Picture a cul-de-sac but with trees rather than houses. One of the ends even had houses at it.

I could see how that sounds interesting if you haven't lived here.

John Smith 17/09/18(Mon)09:22 No. 46210

Anyways, it was about two hours of driving to each spot, a trial head at one, houses at another, and a park at the third, and then more trees at the other. They recently expanded the road too, adding another mile.

I could talk about the view and what not, but that might get too interesting, i don't know. For me, I'm used to it all so its not that exciting.

Dear John,
How do you feel about walks? I personally love them, night or day, especially when the park I walk in is empty.
Regards, John

as it occurs, the best part about walking alone is also being alone, making main street not an option.

If you are really worried John, you should carry a knife. If you don't like that approach, don't carry or wear anything valuable while you walk. I like to leave my phone at home when I walk in the park at night.

There's nothing about having a diploma that makes me feel particularly superior to someone who doesn't. Rarely do any of the degrees have a direct correlation with knowing what you're doing, least of all in this modern age where lots of information is freely available over the Internet.

I remember skipping straight from high school algebra to college calculus without precalculus in between, so now I'm using Khan Academy to refresh my knowledge of the portions of math that I'd carelessly breezed past. I'm pleasantly surprised with how deep trigonometry can be.

John,

I'm off to university again, later this week. I probably won't have much time to write you, but I'm not concerned. Things seem to stay the same with you, no matter how long it's been since the last time we talk. It's very comforting, in a way.

I know I probably tell you too often, but it really is crazy to think just how long you've been in my life, and I appreciate you a lot. Stay comfy and safe, I'll be back again in a while.

Best Wishes,
--John

Recently my paychecks have been somewhat lackluster.

Maybe I should ask for a raise.

I got a raise recently. Now I make $10.50 an hour. Good thing I live in a rural area, or else I'd need a second job just to live.

I think I should go to bed, but the mattress just isn't very comfy. So I'd rather sit here and waste time.

Does anyone else find the audio here relaxing?

though I cannot speak for the others here, I can state with certainty that I find the audio here to be relaxing, yes.

Perhaps a new mattress is in order for you.

Have you slept well in the past few weeks?

Hello John

It's rather soothing. I cut Alcohol out of my life rather suddenly so when I'm about to go to bed this tune helps me settle down. Have you ever tried drinking hot tea? Chamomile may help you relax even if the bed isn't the most comfy.

John

I got into a fight several days ago. Some gentlemen took issue with a gesture I made in a parking lot, a misinterpretation as it was towards my female coworker whom I've no intention of courting. Afterwards, when I left the store, he confronted me. I threw 78 cents worth of various coins at him while questioning his sanity in regards to my "finger guns."

I lost, but he grabbed my shirt and then my leg during the proceedings. The following blows to my guard and the back of my head did not hurt, and I'm completely unharmed save two knuckles having been scraped.

Looking back, I had much more fun then I've had in a long time, and it made me hope you were enjoying your summer, too.

Wishing you the best,
-John

John Smith 17/07/23(Sun)08:09 No. 46151

John, are you telling me you spent the better part of an argument throwing coins at a man? In hindsight, your weaponized currency is probably the reason it escalated to a fight. Regardless though, I'm glad to hear you had a good time. It's been too long since I've had a good scrap--they become less and less common, the more mature company you keep.

John Smith 17/07/29(Sat)18:50 No. 46163

I haven't ever been in a fight in my life save for a very few short lives spars.
I'm happy to hear you weren't hurt, John and I have to admit I admire people who can casually get into fights as I have huge mental block towards it
