    Sykes Wilford, SmokingPipes.com Founder on Radio Show of June 2, 2020

    Always great to hear Sykes. Actually, Brian, people aren't necessarily the world's leading authorities on their own opinions. Socrates demonstrated that quite a while ago.

    Of course the final five questions have right and wrong answers. Truthful answers are right. False answers are wrong. Am I not right? :)

    Illegal for the Underaged to Listen to a Pipe Smoking Discussion?

    EDIT: Fixed Capitalization in Title (See Rule 9) - Bob Does anyone know of a state or national law that forbids the underaged from listening to, say, a podcast about pipe smoking? I've heard word to that effect, but I have hard time believing it. (How would it be enforced and wouldn't a warning...

    A Worm in My Bulk?

    So does that mean I should toss the tobacco? That is shaped differently from what I saw, not as long and it is plumper.

    Indian meal moth larvae. That's what mine looked like.

    A Worm in My Bulk?

    On a tip from a FB pipe friend, I Googled Indian meal moth larvae. That's what it looks like. If so, it's probably not the tobacco.

    A Worm in My Bulk?

    Me too. Frankly, I was so startled -- I'd never seen such a thing before in my house -- that I just grabbed a tissue, balled it up, and threw it away. I kick myself for that. It was a half-inch long, white, and thin. Come to think of it, my first thought was "caterpillar" because it seemed to...

    A Worm in My Bulk?

    That's what I did. I spread it all out in batches and found nothing unusual whatever. So it's okay?

    A Worm in My Bulk?

    After opening a just-arrived bag of bulk Va tobacco, a thin, short white worm appeared on the table right next to the bag. I've never seen such a thing in my house before. So it must have come from you know where. What should I do?

    FDA Begins Unannounced Inspections of Pipe Makers

    For the record, I make nothing from the blog. But if I've inadvertently broken the rules, I'm happy to have the post deleted. No offense intended.

    FDA Begins Unannounced Inspections of Pipe Makers

    Isn't this the "tobacco legislation" subforum? The FDA is conducting inspections on the basis of the 2009 Tobacco Control Act.

    Pressed Meerschaum

    I assume what I have a pressed. It was an embarrassingly low-cost (new) pipe I bought on eBay, under $10, shipping included. Yet it looks good and smokes well. I infer it is pressed because the underside has what looks like a seam -- it's not very obvious -- where the slightest bit of color has...

    Cheap vs Expensive Meerschaum

    Do pressed meers color?

    Pressed Meerschaum

    Is it a confirmed fact that pressed meerschaum will never, ever color? I have an inexpensive pressed meer pipe that smokes great and has a great bent-apple shape with a red lucite stemp. But having smoked it since April 2017, it has not turned at all. Is that the way it's gonna be? Thanks for...

    I had to take the Sutliff 150 Mark Twain out of the jar to dehumidify it.
