Silly question of the day - does anyone actually use the rear coupe windows?

I'm just curious if anyone actually uses them. I drive with my front windows open all the time, but I don't see a benefit to having the rears open.

when the weather is nice, i open the roof and the rear windows. less wind noise and it provides a nice breeze.

You let people smoke in your car? NO way in HELL do I allow any smoking in my car. Even my mother won't light up in my car.
