Here are some tips to help you, more effectively, flush your cigarette ends down the toilet.
The secret to the fag's ability to resist being flushed down the loo is the fact that it takes a little while for it to get wet once dropped into the bowl. This means that it remains buoyant for a little while and is not affected by the draining water.
Now, if you wait for 2 minutes, letting it soak up a little water, it will get a little heavier, lose a little buoyancy and sink either like the Titanic or like your spirits when you read this blog.
So there you go kiddies, practical science advice; advice that will probably save your life someday, from your friendly neighborhood bloggist. [who incidentally managed to pass his Fluid Mechanics paper without studying, although that 'without studying' part can be said about almost all my subjects in my um...what was it called again ? let me see, oh right right B.E in Mechanical or something like that.]
