Funniest Airport Prank
Photo of airport smoking section shows damage from cigarettes
Smoking kills...and ruins ceiling tiles.
The INSIDER Summary:
- A Reddit user posted a photo of a smoking section at an airport.
- The ceiling tiles in the smoking section are yellowed, while the ceiling tiles outside the smoking section remain white.
- It's a good reminder the harms caused by smoking.
By now, we all know that smoking causes cancer. Smokers are 25 times more likely to get lung cancer than non-smokers, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). But it's not just the lungs that are affected by this habit. Smoking tobacco is also known to cause cancer in the blood, bladder, liver, kidneys, pancreas, stomach, colon — just about anywhere in the body, the CDC says.
But nothing — not even scary statistics — can drive home the dangers of smoking quite like a powerful visual.
A photo shared on the /r/pics subreddit is a stunning reminder of the damage that smoking does both to propertyandthe human body.
On Wednesday, Redditor myroseyredskin posted a photo showing dirty, yellowed ceiling tiles at an airport's smoking section. The ceiling tiles outside the enclosed smoking section, by contrast, still look clean and white.
