  1. The rise since 2001 and before May 2006 must have been caused by rational expectations of a smoking ban.

    Tim adds: Clearly, practising the moves.

  2. So what’s the rationale… that people who don’t smoke are more likely to get laid? That’s kind of a reversal of the stereotypical view, innit?

    Tim adds: Having to pop outside for a puff, leaving the group at the table, leads to more encounters amongst those who pop outside for a puff.
