  1. I had the opportunity to go down to the DR and visit Davidoff's facilities a couple years ago as well as do a video interview with Henke. Henke is a fountain of knowledge and you're absolutely right that the QA at the factory is of a level I haven't observed in other factories. Edit: Here's our 48 minute interview with Henke and Klaas. I apologize for the video stability issues, I skipped my monopod to keep my travel weight down for the DR. Bad decision on my part.
  2. https://www.cnn.com/2021/05/17/politics/us-investigates-second-case-mystery-syndrome-white-house/index.html Multiple sources tell CNN that the episodes affected two officials on the National Security Council in November 2020, one the day after the presidential election and one several weeks later. The cases are consistent with an inexplicable constellation of sensory experiences and physical symptoms that have sickened more than 100 US diplomats, spies and troops around the globe and have come to be known as "Havana Syndrome."
  3. The Internet has made me very wary about what I lick in Australia.
  4. I was originally responding to two statements: People with chronic conditions being reported as COVID-19 was addressed above. While that would incorrectly increase the mortality number, the overall mortality number is still massively under reported across the US. Extrapolating that because a small number of people are reported as dying from COVID-19 means most people who are reported as such are not, is incorrect. COVID-19 is a serious disease, that is highly contagious, and despite the belief of some people that hundreds of thousands in the US, and millions around the world haven
  5. Some interesting new studies starting to come out, for those who are into data and analytics. http://www.healthdata.org/special-analysis/estimation-excess-mortality-due-covid-19-and-scalars-reported-covid-19-deaths The TL;DR for those who don't want to or can't be bothered to read the whole thing: Analysis looked at weekly and yearly mortality rate trends using a Poisson model. Some countries, such as Netherlands, reported all excess deaths as COVID-19 due to a lack of testing ability. Despite that, the number may still exceed reported numbers due to certain
  6. Our Canadian group likes to laugh at the time in a single purchase we collectively bought 1.8% of the world supply of Infantes. Either the last time or the time before I saw an HK buyer pick up something like 30 boxes in a single purchase. Tourism cigar buying is enormous.
  7. Gather round, and let me tell you the story of the 133 ring gauge CroMagnon Femur, and the 21" x 100 ring gauge "Big Woody".
  8. Naw, none of that is true. We can compare the death rate against causes of death quite easily to validate.
  9. Point of fact: For the US at least, COVID-19 deaths surpassed heart disease and cancer to be the leading cause of death at several points through the pandemic.
  10. Registered, now I just need to figure out how to get on the Habanos press list.
  11. COVID got me pretty into fitness. Fitness whole tub of ice cream into my mouth. Last few months I wisened up and have got back into shape, dropped about 10 lbs.
  12. I believe the official climate of Alberta is semi-arid. If you try to use a humidor without bringing the humidity up to where it should be, you're going to have a bad time for a long time.
