    Hacks, hints, tips, and accessories for smoking while driving?

    Somebody makes a piping gizmo that fits in a standard cupholder, but I think it only holds your pipe. And it was a bit spendy, as I recall.

    "Sunshine Protection Act"

    It isn't. It hasn't been about energy or the economy for decades and decades. I read a book about it several years ago. DST still exists because it has some major industries lobbying for it: outdoor sports (esp. golf), outdoor living (think patio furniture and bbq grills), etc. There was...

    Eames Lounge Chair

    I'll be deep fat fried. I thought the Eames chair originated as a craftsman piece.

    Eames Lounge Chair

    The one you linked to said $8,000. I thought that was the knock-off you were referencing. (In my mind, a Herman Miller Eames chair is a knock-off.)

    Refilling your lighter with butane

    It seems to make no difference whatsoever how I bleed the tank, what butane I use, how I hold the can and lighter, or what tip I use on the can, my lighters (including Old Boys) just do not want to be refilled. I waste about as much as I get in the tank.

    Captain Black anyone?

    I used to frequent Elliot's shop, myself. There was always those 2 codgers in there, sitting in the middle of the shop looking at old Playboys and solving the world's problems.

    Chromebook EOL

    I'd say you have more time than that, if you want to keep them around. The fact that security updates stop being released doesn't mean they're unsecure the next day.

    I should quit reading the obituaries

    Smoking vests?

    I find the leftover smell of pipe smoke to be as unpleasant as cigar or cigarette smoke. Stale tobacco smoke is stale tobacco smoke, according to my nose holes.

    Smoking vests?

    Preventing the clothes from absorbing smoke was what I always understood to be the purpose.

    Smoking vests?

    A vest seems like it would kinda defeat the purpose.

    Virginia Perique cigars

    Not sure I'm a big fan of seeing perique go into cigars. If cigar smokers decide they like it, it'll be very difficult to get in pipe blends anymore.
