Description I was sitting outside the front doors of Starbucks and these Arab students started smoking. There were 4 of them and I counted 6 cigarettes! It got so bad I had to leave. The store owners told me they had to tell some police that were doing the same thing that they were breaking the law. So if this happens again, I go inside to the store owners and have them fight it out. Damn smokers anyway. Anyway, I was working on this abstract when that happened so I thought I'd name it after them.
