This is nothin at all to do with music. But I've been wonderin, do flies get lung cancer??? Coz it's gettin warm again (yeah summers on its way)theres a lotta flies about, n the odd one or two get into the house. When I'm smokin (Marlboro's of course) I always exhale in the direction of of as a way of then to get away from me. But am I harmin there health?

I don't think they live long enough to get cancer, but niccotine is a poison and I've seen a smoker friend of mine kill a fly by exhaling on it. It just takes a few minutes.

Of course they dont get any oxygen, and thats dangerous,
but its not likely that they can get lung-cancer.
They can have cancer-like tumours, but thats caused
by mutations, not smoking.
So I guess you can keep on blowing smoke on them,
without having to worry for their lungs.
But maybe they can die from CO2-poisoning, and
what if the fly has a family, a house, a boat
and maybe a dog?
Then what about the children?!
Somebody please think of the children!!!!

Erm, hate to break this to you but I don't think flies buy houses or boats, they just use everyone elses. Which means they're prespassing which is illegal.

LMAO... hehehhe, oh dear.
oh yeah, mc9mm, cancer is a mutation.... lung cancer is a mutation caused by a mutagen...alledgedly in cigarrets (I'm not saying anything i could get sued over... :D)

Well I meant genetic mutations, inherited.
And of course flies buy boats!
Dont tell me you've never seen a fly in a boat before.
And its not trespassing if you have a search warrant.
Have you ever asked a fly if hes got one?
No I thought so.
Maybe he has one, no one knows.
So until you ask him, this is the deal:
"Every fly is innocent until proven guilty."
It says in chapter 4, §12 in the
"Lawbook for Insects and Other Very Small Animals",
I think they have it at Amazon.
