My opinion on smoking – see the photos yourself (STOP SMOKING!)

Hi all,

Today I wanted to share my opinion about smoking habit. I must say that it has always been disgusting for me but when I was younger, I didn’t really know too many people who were smoking. In the past few years I met people at work who were smoking addicts and now I have several friends who do it regularily. The worst thing is that many of them are really young people and they are messing up their health already in such an early age. It’s just awful for me to see another young boy or girl lighting up a cigarette and sometimes I would really like to pull it out from their mouth although I have no legal right to do so (and I won’t). For me, smoking is a sign of lower intelligence and I think that young people who haven’t smoked for long should really quit it ASAP to avoid leaving a bad impression about themselves. When I think of smoking, I just can’t stop myself thinking about people who don’t have a good job, use vulgar language and THINK they have a big ego although they are worth nothing in my eyes. The awful thing about smoking also is that it leaves down a disgusting smell which attaches to your and nearby people clothing (also hair) and it’s a reason for people to stop working, stop studying, stop doing whatever they were doing to just go and do nothing. Come on – go and rest then, don’t overload your body with just a different kind of crap!

As a businessman I must say that cigarettes are indeed a brilliant business idea. It’s a dirty business I’d say, but it’s hugely profitable. The “good” thing about cigarettes is that they are relatively cheap to produce, they are easy to ship since they are so light, one small package is worth a nice sum of money and most important of all, they cause addiction! Every business would rise like a rocket if it caused addiction. Another interesting point is that even if one wanted to quit smoking, it becomes really hard for him or her (especially if he/she doesn’t have a very strong personality) if friends and for example co-workers still smoke all the time and provide no support whatsoever to the one trying to quit.

One day I had some free time and I had my Canon camera with me, so I decided to create some attention regarding this topic. I stepped into a supermarket, bought a bunch of expensive Marlboro cigarettes for about 35 USD and went to my Chevy Suburban. I carefully placed the packages to the asphalt in front of all the people walking by and then did a little burnout on them. My message was that at least some people who drive such big and rare cars in Estonia simply HATE smoking and since such vehicles are especially loved by younger people who are often addicted to smoking, they should see that while the car is cool, smoking simply isn’t. Our company seriously supports quitting smoking and we won’t hesitate to help our employees also financially if it was necessary for some method of quitting it. Oh, and if you say that with my action I supported Phillip Morris Corporation instead, then you’re right, but I’d say that I supported Estonian government instead. Believe me, Morris won’t even notice the difference in their financial statement from what I did.

One bloody small car – the Smart…

A few days ago we had a regular visit to a supermarket and just before leaving the parking lot, a Smart parked next to us. I just couldn’t stop myself going out and taking a couple of photos with my phone. The smallest and the largest cars next to each other is a good catch I think. Ironic is the fact that the Smart was full of ads for a business school and in the rear they had a sticker saying “Think Big!” I understand if it was meant to be a joke, but driving a Smart is actually not my idea of the results one would want to achieve after getting good business education.

Own US and UK shipping address – another provider!

Since I had to order a horse saddle from the UK recently and most sellers in Ebay offered only United Kingdom as the destination, I had to find some solution to this. I found a company named Borderlinx which is similar to Bongous I wrote about in one of the older posts – they give you your own shipping addresses in both USA and UK which you can use when ordering products from any UK or US sellers. Then they ship it over to your actual living address worldwide. You can visit Borderlinx here.

Jay Leno’s Garage – some of the best videos ever!

1970 Dodge Challenger R/T HEMI Jay LenoHi all,

Today I thought I should write about a website which I really adore as a car fan. It’s the Jay Leno’s Garage found at jaylenosgarage.com. Most of the credit goes certainly to the master Jay Leno himself who is best known for his Tonight Show on NBC running daily in the United States. I like that show too, but it’s just incredible what kind of a car collection Jay has put together over the years. He has practically everything – simply a dream of every boy and man. One of my favorite videos there is of his 1970 Dodge Challenger HEMI 426 which is just a lovely vehicle I wish to own one day. You can watch the Challenger video here.

How to get US Only products shipped worldwide

I just thought that there might be people visiting my site who are struggling to find a seller from the USA who ships internationally. You know, there are all those power steering pumps, engine parts, exterior and interior accessories etc which are often sold only to US addresses in the online stores or in the US Ebay. Well, ofcourse one method is to have a good friend in the USA who can accept your stuff at his or her place and then send it over to your country via some other shipping method. However, I recently discovered a website called Bongous which specializes in delivering such US Only items around the world. They give you your own US address which you can use in any online store and then ship your items after they get them inside the United States. Bongous offers different subscriptions and the fees vary depending on the package you decide to take. It seems that the fees are rather low (either 5 USD signup fee or 15 USD per month if you have more parcels moving). I haven’t tried this solution out myself yet, but I probably will soon. I will then keep you updated. Or, if you have tried it out, please feel free to comment on your experiences.
