Via Hampy Hamp (aka Pat Nurse?) on Facebook:
I’ve seen people smoking like in D and E, but I’d always interpreted it to mean that they were either trying to keep the cigarette hidden or protected from wind or rain.
I had to light a cigarette and see what I did with it before I could answer.
I found that I held it in a variety of ways. When drawing on it, it would be held between the index and middle finger a bit like F. When just holding it in the air between puffs, I held the cigarette between thumb and middle finger, a bit like B but reversed. And when typing or drinking from a mug, the cigarette was wedged firmly between index and middle finger, as in A.
Anyway, to save you the trouble of actually doing the online test, the psychological significances were given as:
A intellectual, very brainy type, a contemplative character.
B unreliable, weak, hard to live with, and inclined to excessive lying.
C Very tense , direct, straight-forward, inclined towards stubbornness.
D A hail fellow, well-met character who enjoys high living. Texas millionaire type.
E daring, calculating, literally likes to “play with fire.”
F dreamer, always off on a tangent.
G Very pessimistic, excessive in business caution.
Believe that and you’ll believe anything.
And if smoking bans tear communities apart, so do windmills:
Wind turbines tear apart communities and relationships, causing animosity that lingers for years, warn farmers who have lived through the ugly battles…
“There are people here that have absolute hatred for others. I have never seen anything so divisive in our community ever, in my entire life,” said Alma-area dairy farmer Tim Martin. “You try to say forgive and forget, but a lot of people say ‘we forgive them but we remember.’ They put their pocketbook ahead of our health and above the community’s well-being, and people don’t forget that….”
“My in-laws are Dutch and some of them are quite old,” Martin said. “They liken this to the war. They say through the war there were families that helped the (Nazis), and people never looked at them the same. Those people who supported the turbines are never going to be looked at the same.”
