Regarding his list of reasons for smoking a pipe, I take issue with #9, in large part because #8 is so true...

I think he was calculating on a per smoke basis. Certainly a lifetime of TAD affliction is costly  Twisted Evil 
Personally, I took issue with #2 because it simply is not true. I have some slobbered briar to prove it.

That's no lie! My dog won't leave me alone if I'm smoking Latakia.

I've been saved by #4 more than a few times, though.

I've got to have a hernia on a surgical incision repaired. When the surgeon walked in for the consult, the first thing he said was "I didn't know anyone smoked a pipe anymore". I told him there were a few off us still around.

More than anything else I think it is visibility that limits the growth of pipe smoking. There must be a lot of people who buy a cheap pipe, some gawd awful baccy, and give up after a fruitless week of trying to keep the darn thing lit  Sad 

If it were not for the helpful folks here acting as a virtual smoking uncle I would never have stuck with it  Very Happy

I'd say this is the best reason; we're invisible.
Regulations on smoking outside in public places means we never see a pipe smoker anymore. We're all at home.

I think we're on to something here.  Suspect 

And number seven is why I continue to smoke one. (7. It makes me feel calm and relaxed.) Wink

Want to stay calm and relaxed?  Stay the hell out of public places.  

Reason I stay at home..hermits with guns and short fuses and pipes.

I'm not short fused, just don't tolerate idiots.

Yo, Cart.  If that isn't copywrited, I'd like to copy it for my place.  If you don't mind.  


Perfect reflection of my attitude....loveable but don't step on my feet.

Thanks for that fun article to read. For some reason it takes me back to Toronto Sportsman Show in the early 70's when my dad and I would go. Brigham had a booth there and my dad would buy a pipe and christen it right there at the show!. I loved the smell of the the various tobaccos. Day's long gone and never to return.

Fun article. People want instant gratification and no fuss. Hence cigars and cigarettes. The quality of pipe tobaccos today are a compelling antidote to this in my opinion even if someone is always on the go

Interesting read. Thanks for posting.

As a 31 yr old who's been pipe smoking since I was 18, this is definitely something I've noticed. And I knew about Twain and Tolkein but didn't find out about Einstein until I started.

Now I only wish I had more of the liberties they had with pipe smoking and a porch or balcony...
