Electronic cigarette or "Allah is great!": Which worries you more?

This dude does both -- the article goes with the onboard cigarette angle.

As much as I dislike onboard smoking, I'd be more worried about the Allah bit. Would it make a difference if instead of "Allah is great!!!" the guy shouted "Amish rock!!!"?

That is quite the scary story.

What's an electronic cigarette anyway?

It's a cigarette simulator that emits a vapor instead of actual smoke. They are eerie when you see them, because it really looks like the person is smoking. There used to be a booth at the Paradise Valley Mall in Phoenix and this person would stand there "smoking". Very weird.

"Allah is great!!!"? I was surprised to read/hear that he started "screaming" this when they tried to take the electronic cigarette away. Perhaps this shows how problematic nicotine withdrawal can be...

Seriously though. At least he wasn't using this electronic cigarette:
