Here I want to show you how to create a heart out of the plastic film which seals a pack of cigarettes. A nice thing to do if you're hanging around bored in a pub.

I thought it was pretty inventive-something I'd think of or do maybe-I dig it. I'm just glad over-bearing non-smokers are here to save the day by flaming on a guy's idea. Bravo! That's the way! Read an instructable clearly labeled in a manner indicating it uses a cigarette package (wait, could this involve cigarette CONSUMPTION? OH NO!) then crap on it because it does. I'll smoke until I die an untimely death just to spite self righteous people who insist on attempting to force people to conform to their own lifestyle.
It's like the word 'cigarette' is a vulgarity.

I think it is really sad that he is so worried about the toxins from the plastic being melted and not from the cigarettes
