    Do you remember smoking lounges in High School?

    I remember. They served morning coffee in the lounge too. It was run by the student government association...but you could smoke in ALL the halls! Really cool school.

    JackKnife Plug

    I'm with hessenland, a lot of the appeal has to be the novalty of an American, available (well, sort of available) plug format. That being said, how smart is Mr. Peace to have tapped into such a wellspring of consumer demand?
