Fact or Fiction:

How does culture impact our behaviors, especially when those behaviors introduce risk (like smoking) or inefficiency (walking in high heels)?  How are we inadvertently signaling each other through our behaviors?  This is the domain of the book entitled "Of Cigarettes, High Heels, and Other Interesting Things: An Introduction to Semiotics" by Marcel Danesi.  Fascinating and insightful material in this relatively obscure volume that is now in its 3rd edition.
