Smoking Smarties



I guess the new “alarming trend” (love that phrase) is that kids are smoking smarties candy. I included a video below in which a kid shows how to smoke smarties candy. To me it just looks rather stupid. When we were kids we at least had the good sense to sneak a cigarette.

(note - YouTube just banned the original video. So I included another about the topic.)

I also saw an interesting article in which it mapped what people call soft drinks based on region of the country. People from New England tend to call a soft drink a “soda”. People in the South tend to call all soft drinks no matter the brand “Coke”. And the rest of the country tends to use the word “pop”.

Here is a map that shows the survey results:
