Educating is. For proof, I refer you to a professional, Robert M

obtained at any bookstore. It is written in plain english and gives
all references.

Hehehe. Nope, 16 ounces won't do it either. No dosage will (unless
you take a dose SO BIG that it bursts your stomach open).

Isn't tobacco supposed to be relaxing as well? At least that is what
smokers tell me.
