"Smoking and alcoholism"?

Smoking causes six times as many preventable deaths as alcohol.

Do they mean as harmful as smoking and alcoholism combined, or approximately as harmful as their average? (talk)12:35, 12 August 2010

Oh come on.

Yet another excuse. Leave me alone already. (talk)21:38, 31 July 2010

No one has actually bothered you.

Now some civil rights lawyer is going to quote this study to shut down solitary confinement as a punishment in prisons. (talk)18:25, 29 July 2010

Actually that seems very likely. From what I've heard, solitary confinement can lead inmates to insanity in some cases.
