The smoke is out to get me!
« on: 20/06/2007 07:10:04 »
Why is that when I have a bonfire, no matter where I stand, eventually the smoke starts coming my way? And it's not just bonfires. It happens with BBQs too. It doesn't even seem to matter if I stand upwind, the smoke always finds me.

Is it just me? Does the smoke want to get me? Does this happen to other people too? Why does it happen? How?  ???

i have noticed that when a group of people are smoking, the smoke always heads directly to the non smoker in the group. perhaps it's the same principle... the smoke is trying to get everyone!

It's to do with the low pressure formed by your body - there is always a little vortex as a breeze passes you, or as you move, and some of the smoke filled air will move into the low pressure area.

You can lead a horse to water but a pencil must be lead.

Please don't throw your cigarettes into the toilet. It makes them soggy and hard to light.
