    Just doesn't seem right together

    I would certainly not disagree with that. MM makes damn good pipes and they do their job admirably. For me it's more an issue of aesthetics which I know is not how everyone looks at things. Personally, I want what works the best or provides for my needs regardless of price. Sometimes I get it in...

    Fruit Cake Inquiry

    I grew up only having the horrible fruit cake that no one likes, re-gifted year after year. I'm quite intrigued by the idea of good fruit cake. It's normal for something that was once tasty to turn into an over processed mess so it's not surprising the reputation has suffered but those Collin's...

    Fruit Cake Inquiry

    Excellent OC, thank you very much. I believe that was the one I was thinking of. I'm sure I could have google searched but I wanted to say hi, regardless. Hope you have a great Cajun Christmas.

    Just doesn't seem right together

    I suffer this on both ends. It does seem a bit out of place lighting up a cob with a sleek and shiny lighter. I get the same feeling when I have out a beautiful pipe, my Cosmic Folklore tamper and my old boy with my good ole paper plate for tobacco drying. But I have come to enjoy this slight...

    Fruit Cake Inquiry

    First and foremost, Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and Happy Holidays to you all. I have been busy with life, work and some new projects. So much so that I have avoided too much pipe related temptation and stayed away for my own sake. I've been smoking a lot of GQ tobacco Christmas blend of...

    Do You Like smokingpipes.com New Website's Design?

    Can't stand it. I do not need to be impressed with a retail site, I just need a no nonsense and easy to see/navigate shopping experience. I believe it to be a huge step back in that regard.

    Tea Drinkers - What Online Stores Do You Use?

    If you are serious about tea, this is one of my favorites. They supply top quality oolongs that are difficult to find outside China and Taiwan. The prices are reasonable although these are not cheap teas. These should only be brewed in Yi Xing clay pot or a gaiwan, be sure not to burn them...

    Forget Penzance...

    I don't think Gaslight and Penzance are that close and I love both. Out of all the suggested substitutes, excluding Krumble Kake because I can find any, I think Star of the East flake is closest but still decidedly different. Just my 2 cents, although now that the gold standard is gone I'm not...

    Aros Why?

    Because they like them.

    How Big Of A Role Do Tobacco Reviews Play In What You Buy?

    Generally speaking, zero. Although I might check to get an idea of constituents, I base nothing on the reviews outside of satisfying my curiosity on what others thought. Too many blends I thought I wouldn't like, I did like. Too many blends I though I would like, I didn't. Solution: try them all...

    Proposition To Restrict All New Esoterica Threads

    Proposition To Restrict All New Esoterica Threads

    I didn't mean that to be too authoritarian, just a reminder. I certainly don't think this thread is a violation. Sadly though, you either ban repetitive questions, make a sticky and hope for the best or you get repeat threads. Think of it as a chance to use great gifs.

    Sorry, I Just Don't Get It.

    Truly that is one of the beauties of science but that does not mean that many questions will not be answered. Science grows exponentially with our technology and has expanded at a rate that we could not have predicted. Science may very well answer some questions previously relegated to...

    Sorry, I Just Don't Get It.

    Also I do not mean to imply that philosophy has not addressed insignificance. Only that our philosophy is a very human product of our human perception yet we tend to ascribe it a more universal significance. While I in no way lend belief or credence to Discordianism, I have to give some personal...

    Sorry, I Just Don't Get It.

    That should read "Ding and Sich is beyond us but that plays to my point and it is likely that it exists none the less. I think objective reality outside our perception is unknowable to us but that does not negate its existence.

    Sorry, I Just Don't Get It.

    Broccoli is a object and art is a concept. Concepts are not rigidly defined and almost always change over time. We can argue over the validity of out perception of physical matter or force but art is an idea. Anyone who follows science knows that facts change a lot more than the average person...

    Sorry, I Just Don't Get It.

    Reality is a human concept, a concept for what exists independent of perception. The more we learn about physics though, it becomes obvious how flawed the basic understanding of what the universe and therefore reality is. Nothing can be observed without affecting what is being observed. Ding and...

    Some Welcome Lighthearted News

    Man, I would love to see people handed a pipe instead of nicotine gum or those vape machines. As appealing as the mental image of a doctor handing his patient a Missouri Meerschaum is, I agree it would be a very hard sell these days. I think it would make for a great Norman Rockwellesque...
