Beware the e-cigs link - it's a thinly disguised advert and contains ill founded claims that real smokers are less productive than others.

If smokers were allowed to smoke indoors at their desks or in smoking rooms the way vapors are in some circumstances, then smokers would be equally productive than vapors. Forcing people outdoors and forcing people to not use the substance responsible for speeding up their mental thinking, then calling them less productive, is total bullsh*t anyhow. Leave smokers alone. And they'll whip the pants off the non-smokers sitting all day online looking at websites, doing email and watching porn on company time, which is what non-smokers do.

Interesting article on Obama. He works at home rather than in his office in order that he can smoke. Not a good situation when the leader of the free world can't concentrate on doing his job and feels he can't work in his own office.
