    US Postal Service Is Horrible

    Yeah, that sucks. I'm glad you've never made a mistake during your daily job that inconvenienced someone else. Maybe you should ask to speak to the manager, Karen.

However, if we have someone in the building, that comes down with COVID-19, within 14 days of being in our building, Health and Human Services...

    The Problem of Too Much Selection

    Good question. For me it was when I started trying to fine things that tasted like something I had already smoked. Early on, I found that Latakia was my thing. I started chasing a flavor profile. I settled into the flavors I like best.
