  1. Great review. Love these. Down to my last box. They have become special occasion smokes.
  2. Yeah, don't let the Berlin LCDH sway you from visiting the others. Most are great. Hamburg is run by a charlatan and thief, but at least in person you will be able to be very insistent about receiving cigars you paid for.
  3. I see the LCDH Berlin's odd idea of what constitutes "customer service" hasn't changed since I was last there years ago.

    CNN. The secret world of cigars

    This appears to be Club Macanudo in New York City. The suits are explained by: 1) this is NYC, and 2) NYC Club Macanudo has a dress code.

    Well, we already have the photograph of the 2019 season. Looks like a shot from an upcoming James Bond movie.

    Something was definitely funny with that Ferrari engine in Melbourne. Watched some of the Vettel on board and there were a number of odd RPM drops in the straights. That plus all the corner entry coasting they were doing and it seems like Marko is right. Ferrari was obviously running the engine in some kind of low level safe mode in the race.
  7. Another image that gives an idea of the full size.

    Hmm, who's sandbagging? And by how much? We'll find out when the engine party modes come out in Qualy today. Don't forget, Red Bull folks saying they will have a legit party mode for Qual for the first time also.

    Easy way, use an online resizer, like (there are others also):

    I see this has now turned into the Unofficial Post Padding Thread for the newbs and lurkers. At least try to add some insightful comments. Oh wait, the guys with 10,000+ posts don't do that at all (ever), so continue on!

    Jury Duty

    This is so obvious, I don't even know how to explain it. You pay taxes on wages you actually made. Your W-2 won't have an extra line for "Wages we didn't actually pay but we're reporting to the IRS anyway so you end up paying more than you should". If there was, then you could rightly say you should be allowed to deduct those. But since your W-2 doesn't have that, trying to deduct them is reducing your tax liability by 2x your tax rate on the lost wages.

    Jury Duty

    You want a double deduction on your taxes for wages not earned? Is your real name Wesley Snipes?

    And Williams already behind everyone else, missing Day 1. Plus they are putting the guy with the thickest wallet out in the car for Day 2 (Latifi). And not one of their active drivers. Already looks like a long 2019 in store for Williams.

    I like the black accents on the Ferrari. Looks better than the white they had previous seasons.
  15. You may want to explore buying cigars in cardboard pack format. That said, I suspect the sensitivity is to more than just cedar / mahogany, as there's really no Spanish Cedar (or I would guess cedar of any variety) in present day dress boxes or SBN boxes or SLB cabinets. Some may have divider sheets that are Spanish Cedar, so you may want to trial a dress box where you remove the divider upon receipt. See that improves the situation. Oh, and the Romeo y Julieta Cedros series would be unadvisable your wife.
