    Corn cob variety or seeds for pipe making

    My son-in-law and I decided to give this a try a few years ago, using corn cobs from dinner. I chopped 'em to length, scraped 'em again on the outside, the put 'em in the oven on low temperature for about an hour or so. Next, I got a drill bit that appeared to fit (3/4", I think) and a 3/8" bit...

    Lifespan of Pipe Smokers

    Is this the same study (1964 because that's the last year they could find a large number of pipe smokers to survey) that showed on average pipe smokers lived 2 years longer than non-smokers?

    Pipe Smoking Detective

    I appreciate what you're saying about the use of pipes in movies. The most recent example I can think of, though not a detective, is Aragorn sitting in a dark corner of the Prancing Pony Inn awaiting the hobbits in "Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring". When Butterburr points him out...

    Whoa! Tell me what tobacco you are smoking so I can throw it away if I have any! (Seriously amazing photoshop work, by the way!)

    Me in my old age

    I am confused by all these "older" folks running around forgetting where their glasses are (on top of their heads), forgetting why they walked into this room (hint: they never left it), and acting startled to find that they are in the car but out of the garage! Even more confusing...they all...

    Oom Pauls

    Is this what you mean when you spoke of "flat sides from bowl to stummel"? I find this "veeeeery interestingk" as Arte Johnson would say (but not "shtoopid"). I appreciate your knowledge on the subject!

    Yet Another Ye Ol' British Television Thread

    I've only watched bits and pieces of Sharpe, but I picked up the first book in the series a few years back and after reading it became obsessed! I read the whole series through in order and enjoyed it thoroughly! It might be time to do the same with the t.v. series, the bit of campiness only...
