  1. Newcomer (Newbie) Q&A

    Think about blowing up a Ziplock as full as you can and sealing the sucker. You wouldn’t expect it to stay puffed up like a balloon indefinitely, right? It’s mostly airtight, but not entirely. Atmospheric air is mostly O2 and N2. Water is a smaller molecule than either. If those gasses diffuse across the polyethylene, you would expect the smaller molecule to do so as well.
  2. On our way to Palm Springs

    If you have some free time, there is an awesome oasis in the area - Coachella Valley Preserve - with some beautiful natural lands and terrific light to moderate hiking! https://www.tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Review-g32847-d156964-Reviews-Coachella_Valley_Preserve-Palm_Springs_Greater_Palm_Springs_California.html https://www.google.com/maps/place/Coachella+Valley+Preserve+-+Thousand+Palms+Oasis+Preserve/@33.8369299,-116.3122931,16z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x80dafb654c6576a9:0x91e486f8f5b5622b!8m2!3d33.8369299!4d-116.3096903 It's like a 25 minute drive from downtown Palm Springs. Awesome in the late afternoon - sunsets around here are spectacular with a view of San Jacinto. You can literally see the infamous San Andreas fault, or hike up it Oh yeah - the price: FREE! Speaking of San Jacinto, you could consider a ride up the tram (2.5 miles vertical climb) to the top. https://www.pstramway.com/ Happy Trails!

    I was one valley south of the national park last night myself - did you get a crazy windstorm up there too?
  5. I think the Derek Jeter comp is extremely apt. You can't compare Basketball (5 players on a team) to Football (11 offensive / 11 defensive / 11+ special teams). One player has so much more impact on basketball than any other sport (excepting solo sports). Both unflappable, both have that "oh no" feeling when you are rooting for the other team. I never doubted Jeter to come up big - same as Brady.

    Good to see you are off the hiatus!

    Gargle with hydrogen peroxide and then brush throughly.
  8. A few questions on Cohiba

    The old adage applies: it is worth what someone is willing to pay for it... Ever tasted shark fin soup? It is horrible, and yet it is wildly expensive. Why complain about the price of something like Behike or Cohiba in general? They are fetching prices well above your assessment of what they are worth? Who gives a fig? There are many alternatives with better value; revel in your frugality and smugly enjoy your subsidized smoke

    Exquisitos AMO MAR 16 Just a terrific skinny.
  10. Inbound Missile cigar.............

    I think I'm going with a Feunte Anejo 49 (double corona)... They're about 12 years old and in peak form
  11. This really just happened...

    Got a text from my little brother - he and his wife are in the Islands for a vacation when he received the emergency alert. It was more than a little chilling. Knowing that a missile launch would "require" a response. Thinking about final words to my loved ones. At least it was a mess up and not the real thing. Glad we are all still here!

    Use the crop function to make the picture just slightly smaller. The website code interprets camera files incorrectly (it thinks landscape orientation photos are portrait orientation and vice versa) Any little edit (like cropping) changes the files from "camera" files to "image" files and they will post correctly.

    Monte #2 in honor of no nuclear war this morning
  14. This has gone on long enough

    This is the television equivalent of "smoke what you like"... Personally can't stand 'em, but gotta respect their empire? TV can be brainless entertainment, why bother judging what others like? Would you make fun of someone preferring to smoke Tampa Sweets?
