Startup Weekend Denver 6 fell in love with everyone that added to the innovative hoopla at Galvanize on 27 Jun. 2014.
We challenged, invited and wrote poems for these individuals, all before knowing them. It was truly amazing how these teams responded to the challenge. We playfully rhymed about Raspberry Pi in our invitation post, none of us would have imagined a talented 10 year old girl and her team would make a creative toy and business from it, by golly! If you would’ve taken a bite out of what everyone pitched, inspirational gumption would’ve ensued. We asked everyone to turn the innovative page, they emphatically did so! So much so, surveys were sent out asking if anyone needed bandages for papercuts.
From our environment around us, head to toe and the objects we carry in tow. Little do we know, by products of cigarette smoke, do not simply float in the air passing our lungs, causing a slight choke. The effects of cigarette waste do not simply float in the air, but ever so strongly adhering to the objects around us, creating a 3rd hand smoking plastered lair.
From whence are the case studies? Sadly, they are from where we all start, babies. For they crawl and gobble on surfaces galore, these surfaces should be a learning experience and not a cancer obstacle course with future trap doors.
Tis' a shame 4,000 compounds land on surfaces in which our eyes don't easily see, it is those very compounds that mutate inspiring dreams. Allow time to pass and those compounds to brew, the studies have been marked and 3rd hand smoking will soon be nothing new. Be careful of hand-me down purchases, they too can be laced of substances and embraced by 3rd hand smoking.
From all the Surgeon General's speakin' we should've made better reduction of the first hand smoker cretin, for your lung seizes at the thought of a carcinogenic lesion.
