  1. General Cigar Discussion
    For some time now, I have wanted to do a few posts titled "Cigar Science" and post them up. I have a few other things planned that will be more time/labor intensive, but for the first one, I want to address cigars and smoking time. Specifically, am I smoking too fast, too slow, or just about...

    ("PACKERS WON THE SUPERBOWL!") - Appropriate! I know that there are some fellow BOTL's out there who enjoy this amazing show, and maybe continue to enjoy the current incarnations of it in RiffTrax, Cinematic Titanic, etc. form. Personally, I'm more of a Mike era guy, but Joel fans are welcome...

    I received a beautiful box of CAO Brazilia box pressed in the mail today, and it came with a bonus ... a thriving cigar beetle colony! Four of the 20 sticks are obviously infested, and in one, you can see lots of larvae crawling around. I've only seen one adult, and I think he's dead. I wonder...
  4. Cigar Questions
    I took this from a friend of mine and BOTL on another forum and figured I'd share. Might want to make this one a sticky especially as it has been a hot topic and the summer months are upon us. There will be constant discussion around whether or not to freeze your cigars and whether it impacts...

  6. Cigar Questions
    Ok...bear with me please. This probably could have gone in the Piper's forum, but ultimately it's a question about cigars. I've recently started smoking a pipe, and I've noticed something that puzzles me a bit. When a tobacco is smoked too hot (drawn too fast or hard), it creates a tarry...
  7. Cigar Bombs
    This has been a rough week. Things at work have been breaking left and right and it won't quit raining. Got home today in a daze and without thinking opened the mailbox and KABOOOOOOM. Right in my face. I can barely see to write from the damage it caused. abgoosht thought it would be...
  8. Non-Habanos Reviews
    After reading through the Cremosa vs. Tamoril thread recently, I've decided to take one for the Team, too. Couple months ago, before I knew better, I placed an order with Evil Cigar Co., Which was a complete pain in the ass. The cigars were OK, once I finally got them, but there were two...
  9. General Discussion
    I have cut and paste this from another page... I thought many items were quite interesting. #7 is appropriate and #10 has got to be BS! 1. You can Hypnotize Chickens A chicken can be hypnotized, or put into a trance by holding its head down against the ground, and continuously drawing a line...
  10. Cigar Contests
    Guys/gals, all kinds of reasons to celebrate: just tripped over 700 posts, nearly 400 RG, almost making it 6 months in the jungle, and have had some great cigars passed my way in 2007. Thought I'd pass on some tasty sticks but like a lot I've won, there will be some work to get them. I'm a...
  11. General Cigar Discussion
    This one hot off the presses. Be sure to read Terry Simpson's very comprehensive article on Second Hand Smoke. Just published today in the Stogie Fresh Cigar Journal. Terry cites quite a few studies and exposes the fuzzy logic of anti-tobacco research. Enjoy,
  12. General Discussion
    I wonder how many tax dollars went into this study... Jeanna Bryner LiveScience Staff Writer Tangled telephone cords and electronic cables that come to resemble bird nests can frazzle even the most stoic person. Now researchers have unraveled the mystery behind how such knots form. Two...

    I remember reading a story in a short story collection years ago and I can not remember the name of the story or the author and it's driving me nuts. It was the ultimate time-traveller paradox story. Somehow or other, over the course of the story, it becomes apparent that this guy is his own...
  14. General Cigar Discussion
    This week Doc invited me to be interviewed for his Stogie Fresh 5 podcast --which was a lot of fun! We discuss some of the recent articles I have written and some other cigar science topics. And, of course, I managed to slip in a couple plugs for "Cigar Live" along the way :) So please check...
  15. General Cigar Discussion
    For this edition of Cigar Science I tackle a somewhat controversial topic that I hope with generate lots of debate here on Cigar Live: the value of blind cigar reviews. As you will see, I do not think that blind reviews are the best way to evaluate cigars. Due to the powerful and unavoidable...
  16. General Cigar Discussion
    For this edition of Cigar Science I look at how blowing smoke out of your nose (technically called "retronasal olfaction") changes the flavors you get from a cigar. I again teamed up with Doc Stogie Fresh for an article in his Stogie Fresh Journal. Enjoy...
  17. General Cigar Discussion
    For this topic, Doc Stogie Fresh and I worked together on an article for the Stogie Fresh Cigar Journal which was a lot of fun! You can find the article by going to http://www.stogiefresh.com/ and clicking on the link in the upper right corner of the page under 'Journal'. If you haven't been to...
  18. General Cigar Discussion
    I know that when I first started smoking cigars I was constantly confused by all the terminology used to describe wrappers. So for this post I thought I would do my best to summarize some material on the different factors involved in a cigar wrapper. Note that these are gross generalizations...

    This time they're after weed. http://www.cnn.com/2007/HEALTH/07/27/marijuana.psychosis.ap/index.html The discussion should point out that there is NO CAUSE AND EFFECT DETERMINATION POSSIBLE with this sort of epidemiological horsefeathers. It is very possible that people with underlying mental...
  20. General Cigar Discussion
    After seeing this word used numerous places and finally making it a part of my own vocabulary I began to wonder about where it came from which turned out to open a huge kettle of fish! So after some very quick research here is what I found: Definitions: For those that don't know, the most...
