Dear Doctor Science,How come when I'm camping the smoke always blows towards one particular person, no matter where that person moves? -- Becky Elder from Manitou Springs, Colorado Smoke is into revenge in a big way. It never forgets an insult and believes strongly in an "eye for an eye." It's easy to see that smoke gets in your eyes if you've somehow wronged smoke. But once it's started in on you, getting smoke to lay off can be awfully difficult. You can run, but you can't hide. Smoke is nothing if not persistent. Most insults to smoke come from non-smokers, which is why cigarette smoke always drifts toward a non-smoker. Back when they allowed smoking on planes, I always watched in amazement as the smoke sped down the aisle looking for a non-smoker. Now that only happens in restaurants.
