CP limits smoking!!

SFoGswim's avatar ^ Done. Still doesn't make sense to me. The only time I see that ashes could possibly travel from a row to a row ahead would be if the train was decelerating on some brakes.
Welcome back, red train, how was your ride?!

^The moment that the ashes leave the cigarette they experience an immediate deceleration that results in the on train appearance of them flying into the back rows because the train continues to move forward (think of what a hat looks like when someone loses it on a train vs what it looks like from the ground and you will get the idea.) I wasn't with her in the same row but that's the description she gave me, and what the other passengers around her gave (that entire part of the train was almost ready to lynch him) so I have no doubt that someone who was sitting in a middle front car could feel threatened by ash from someone a row in front of them in the back row of the previous car. *** Edited 4/2/2007 10:32:06 AM UTC by Touchdown***

When returning home from Knoebal's PPP last year I noticed there were "Smoking Lounges" set up at the Airport for those who wanted to Smoke. I then noticed they had something us nonsmokers didn't have. (Actually, in this case they DIDN'T have something we HAD (Which I wish I didn't have!) There were NO Television Monitors in the Smoking Lounges that spewed out the :( Woes of the World :( via CNN or another News Network. I don't know about you but whenever I go on a Vacation I WANT TO GET AWAY FROM IT ALL! I'd like to have the Airports (And other areas with Waiting Rooms) set up a "Media Free Zone" so those of us who'd rather have SOME PEACE AND QUIET while we wait may do so without infringing on those who like to keep in touch with the World ;)

^There is a media free zone in airports. If you don't look at the TV, you can't see what is going on, on the TV, hence, media free zone! :)

^Of course to block out the sound, you need headphones :). Which is pretty much my solution to that problem, my I-Pod or laptop turned movie theatre provides much nicer sound.

I have an IPod: Problem is, I have no way to recharge it once I leave Home! :( Also some Airports play their Monitors LOUD! While waiting for a Flight in Miami last year my IPod's Batteries Gave Out and I moved to a part of the Terminal where no flights were scheduled to leave and thus the Monitors were turned Off. There were a couple of others there waiting for flights there. A few minutes after I arrived a Security Guard showed up and asked us to leave. Much to my Surprise, one of the other passengers stood up to the Guard and told him that the Volume of the News Monitors was Too Loud, and when she tried to explain that to an Employee she was told "It's the Policy of whoever runs those Monitors to decide the Volume, and that there was nothing they could do." This Passenger then said that we just wanted to wait for our flights "In Peace and Quiet". The Guard paused for a moment, then left us to be!

(Sorry to Change the Subject, but Noise Trespass can be as irratating as Second-Hand Smoke!) :(

CP may have created this new smoking policy to comply with Ohio's new smoking law. I don't know how the law reads but they may have to actively enforce the rule or risk fines like the bingo hall here in Pa. that Arthur refered to. *** Edited 4/2/2007 11:10:33 PM UTC by CP ismyhome***

^^Borntocoast the solution to this is to have your AC adapter handy (and if you dont have one get one) while you do have to look most airports will have random, stray AC outlets in the terminals.
