I’ve come down with a cold, and can’t think straight. But a few days ago I watched this trio of YouTube videos of an encounter between modern humans with cameras and recorders and Stone Age humans in New Guinea.
It emerged (10 minutes into the second video) that the Stone Age tribe smoked wild tobacco. I half expected the environmentalists who shot the videos to condemn the practice as loudly as they were condemning their own ‘planet-destroying’ civilisation, but they didn’t.
I suppose this really goes to show that people have been smoking tobacco since, well,.. the Stone Age. And long before there were any tobacco companies. Yet Tobacco Control claim that. but for Big Tobacco with their glitzy packaging and marketing, nobody would ever smoke the stuff.
This video rather blows a hole in that idea.
