    Separating the letters with periods does not determine whether a letter group is an acronym and, in fact, most often there is no separation of the letters. And neither does capitalization.

    How about if I say "I'm gonna get my ham" vs "I'm gonna get my HAM"? Which is the correct version?

    Four out of five men who tried Camels still preferred women.

    It's all about genetics. I could not smoke, eat only tofu, and run 5 miles a day, and drop dead from a heart attack. I like cigarettes, and they do me no harm. I guess maybe I'm lucky that way. :)

    That's the nicotine talking. Spoken like a true addict, like it or not.

    How do I know you say? I did my 30 years and retired from what could be arguably the worst choice I ever made. Just keep on justifying it however you need to.

    This personal attack on nicotine was authorized and paid for by the stench of cigarettes.

    Nicotine is a very powerful addicting stimulant drug; introduced to the early English settlers in Roanoke colony VA during the 1600s.

    To each his own, eh? I'm reasonably happy with my life. Are you happy with yours? As for polluting the air, do you fart? Farts are much worse than cigarette smoke ever was. :D
