World Record for Smoking
image True or False: Did Stefan Sigmond of Transylvania gain the world record for smoking by smoking 800 cigarettes in less than six minutes? If I hadn't seen the picture I wouldn't have believed it was possible, but apparently it is true, although I'm a bit wary about whether using this 'special wheel-like device' should really count. It doesn't seem like you would be fully smoking all the cigarettes. Anyway, I hate smoking, but I'd love to see someone whip out a device like this at a bar and start puffing away.

I have smoked for a number of years and I can tell you that the device is certainly not capable of being air tight around the cigarettes. Some, if not most of, the smoke would be lost. As far as "Liz" is concerned, if you believe all smokers should die, and actually wish for it, did you not also wish for your father to die? Or did you just mean the smokers you do not know or are related to? Just keep talking on your brain tumor inducing phone to and try to keep living your "low-risk" life. Eat right, exercise, and die on your toilet of a stroke. As far as the lungs in the textbooks kids read now, is the owner of the pink "healthy" lung any less dead? I sincerely hope your father will never see this post...

My 73-year-old father smokes 5 cartons, (1,000 cigarettes) per week. Does anyone know if this qualifies as a world record?

It is not possible! 800 cigarettes in less than six minutes - fake! The volume of lungs can't deliver all smoke!

This guy is a real hard-working one, but not sure whether he could become a world record holder in running
