    I see that they are letting the humor-impaired use the interwebs this morning!

    Just Noticed an Excise Tax on my Orders!?

    The historical transfer of real estate from the lower 50% to the upper 10% is a direct result of real estate taxes. Real estate ownership should have been exempted from taxation by the Constitution.

    US order from Cigarworld.de

    The vendor doesn't know any more than you do about the machinations of US Customs and UPS. It's the wild west out there when it comes to ordering from overseas. Was the package sent by air or by sea mail? Sometimes packages breeze right through, sometimes it takes days, weeks, months...sometimes...

    Just Noticed an Excise Tax on my Orders!?

    You need to work on your reading comprehension. I didn't complain about taxes. I said that I was happy to not have to keep track of the bureaucracy surrounding tobacco. My rant about taxes and the gross inefficiencies and inherent corruption endemic to funneling tax dollars through government...

    US order from Cigarworld.de

    UPS will likely not show any tracking information until the package is in their possession. DHL should show tracking up until it leaves the country. Your mileage may vary.

    Just Noticed an Excise Tax on my Orders!?

    I'm not quite sure what my quoted post has to do with any of this.

    Just Noticed an Excise Tax on my Orders!?

    I've looked at their Instagram page before, but could never figure out how to order from them.

    Electric Vehicles

    I'm not sure how you "account" for the unknown long-term impact of the ecological/political/social devastation that the mining has inflicted. Not that fossil fuels haven't done similar damage.

    Electric Vehicles

    Battery component mining and battery disposal alone tell a different story. And until more non-fossile energy power can be added to the grid, the facts will speak for themselves. You are driving a coal/oil/gas fired car.

    1. Got a cite? 1A. Any corroborating studies? 2. It's from the government, it must be true.

    My Latest Creation - Vintage Suitcase Conversion

    Very nice! Be watchful for mold, however. Pipes tend to bloom when kept sealed up in the dark, especially in humid environs.

    What Are Your Thoughts On This?

    Logos Matter

    Are you buying a pipe to look at, or smoke? Now, as a photographer who has earned his living at the trade since 1985, I understand aesthetics. It's my livelihood. But I can not, no matter how hard I squint, squat or sneeze, understand how a stamping on a pipe stem could interfere with enjoying...
