    Ok maybe not, but that's the angle this guy in Slate decided to focus on:

    Finally, there's always the electronic cigarette, a battery-operated contraption that delivers a nicotine solution dissolved in water and propylene glycol, the stuff used in fog machines. Though public health officials stress a lack of research on the safety of these products, e-cigarettes do produce less trash and air pollution than the traditional variety. You may be exposing yourself to ridicule, but isn't that a small price to pay for your sins?

    That comment was by all accounts interesting, informative, false, and hilarious.

    I love this quote at the bottom "I'll give up my cigars when Washington bans fat people by making it illegal to put HFCS (high fructose corn syrup) in the food supply. THAT'S the real killer of Americans today. If you want a soap box to get on, try this one...How is it a kid can eat the 20 piece McMystery chunks, a giant french fry order and several refills of the 44 ounce super-size soda and wants more; but can't eat a peanut butter sandwich and drink a glass of milk without being full?"
