It does not bother me whether people choose to rot their lungs or not, but in answer to Jo, there used to be a very funny skit on a record by one of the american satirists. It was supposedly, as I remember it, Raleigh describing how tobacco was used and the laughter that this caused to someone who had never heard of it. Put that way, smoking is ridiculous and ignoring the dangers of oxygen is nothing by comparison

Just to put the record straight, Oxygen is not flammable. It only supports combustion. Many things will not burn without it. When Oxygen is available in higher than normal concentration then fires become much more fierce, so a smouldering cigarette would burst into flame whilst a lighter flame will become a blowtorch.
