Way to go, Evelyn. But have a couple of Twix, too, because those videos are gnarly and can leave a bad taste in the mouth! :wizard:

I watched these three episodes this weekend. I thought they were really good. Enjoyed them all with the exception of the woman smoking through her neck in episode 3. That's turned my stomach - I wish I could un-see that!!

Edit.  Right now, I know it will only upset me. I looked at the first minute. I don't think I have seen them. I know I will ...

 

If, I am getting it right, Big Tobacco is now targeting 3rd World countries, with gusto.

 

May they all rot in their own filth.

 

*Kudos, to the people standing up to them.

Shocking to watch and yet my generation kind of knew and still they continue to deny it. Crazy.
