  • I once heard that the born Blind never pick up smoking.
    That those smokers who become blind give up smoking after a while.
    Could the reason be that they're afraid of setting fire to their face when lighting up?
    Apparently not.
    The reason offered was that if you don't SEE THE SMOKE, it doesn't feel the same.
