what?!

Are you saying smoking is bad for me?! Does the government know about that? I am so glad somebody was bold enough to enlighten me with this wisdom, because now I know and I will stop smoking immediately, thusly living forever, right?

(You can go ahead and flag this as abusive now.)

nah, I'm gonna leave your "review" up as a testament to the ultimate of text based sarcasm. Like I care what my score is, this is a school project. My choice of topics were this, cancers of the digestive system, or problems with donor organs. So yeah, sue me for picking an easy topic to research.

Smoking saves lives

If I hadn't stopped and had a cigarette at work I would have killed more co-workers than I can count, though I agree smoking is bad for your health. Beyond that this could have been and automated slideshow and you could have devoted a bit more time on the quality factor.

thanks, I am a total n00b with flash, I wanted to make it controlled with the keyboard because it's a school presentation, but I only know how to make the simplest of simple buttons. Not gonna ask about the work thing, I am assuming that it was a unique and unusual situation, similar to a person whose stomach had a hole in it but the hole was plugged up by a benign cancer (basically, smoking doesn't save lives, but it's certainly possible for a person's life to be saved because they were smoking at a particular moment)

i am smoking while typing

this is not a game. save your anti-smoking propaganda for other sites. stay off newgrounds


kourel responds:

um, it makes even less sense as a movie. Those are the only two choices. I kind of have to wonder though, why do you think it propaganda? I researched from relatively reliable sources, and didn't exaggerate anything. And anyhow, it's a school project and uploaded because the computer I presented on didn't have flash. Why did you click on it, again?

...and calling my presentation propaganda does not count as a review lol

Not a particularly good flash, but...

As someone who has never smoked a cigarette (And never will), I agree with the message. Of course, I'm not sure how the others will respond. I do believe, however. that people should have the freedom to choose whether they smoke or not. Once we as America illegalize smoking, we'll become a Fascist country. So, while the message is true, and I do agree with it, I don't think it'll hit home.

Also this is as good a time as ever to talk about the outright propaganda commercials on television. These anti-tobacco commercials take the truth and stretch it to unimaginable lengths. Why? Its a way to FORCE smokers to quit, without actually having to ban cigarettes. 9/10 all it really does is disgust them. I'm not saying this vid is propaganda, but I am saying there is a thin line.

ehh, I did relatively reliable research, and it's a school project. What can I say? I wasn't expecting to get any messages at all so I saw no problem. Clearly people are very defensive about this subject. I don't feel that it is propoganda, and I don't feel much of a connection between it and tv propoganda. I don't see smoking becoming illegal, and I really don't care either way, though I support not being able to do it in public places because there are health risks associated with second hand smoking (to what degree, I don't know).

...I actually had no idea this was such a sensitive subject though, judging by the above review ha ha.

Just realized I'll probably be trolled on for this but I can't bring myself to care.
