  1. Other than airport lounge closures, Switzerland last week seemed more or less normal other than vaccination green pass checks. I don’t doubt anyone else’s experiences, but I’ve been flying domestically within the US nonstop the last year and everyone has been perfectly lovely to me, passengers and staff.
  2. I have one that I picked up from Estanco de la Catedral in Barcelona a couple years ago. Can’t remember the exact price, but I think it came out to be about $400 US? I remember the girl at the register was horrified at that price when she asked another guy there. edit to add—$425.22 edit to add again—I believe they are regular production with five years on them, aren’t they? I’ve had a few and they are really good, but basically nice rested P2s, which is what they are.
  3. So what you’re saying is a bunch of London fatcats can’t figure out how to serve the needs of people who live further afield? Then boy, have I got a life hack for you! For it to work, you will need the services of the French Navy though.....
  4. It says “Product of Cuba” on it though, so English is a bit weird for evaporated milk meant for the domestic market.
  5. Beyond the obvious reasons, some legitimate, I think there’s still special enmity amongst Americans for Cuba and Iran because of the Cuban Missile Crisis and the Iran hostage affair. It’s like if your buddy’s girlfriend cheated on him and he still gets riled up about it years later. Well, the rest of you gotta hear about it.
  6. The early part of 2015, although it feels like it’s been longer.
  7. Either that or the new writers forgot he was dead. Wish it worked that way in real life....
  8. You turned this into a Vietnam thread, but you forgot to invite President Nixon’s Head? Shame!
  9. Maybe a bit off topic, but I find 65 °F to be particularly irritating because it’s so close to ambient temperature. The heater and chiller of my humidor are constantly turning on and off. Compounding that is that unlike most places, the coast of California is routinely cool, but much higher than 65% RH. Well, the way to dry the air is to cool it, but it’s already too cold. I used to work in a building where, to get around this issue, all air coming in was chilled to 50 °F to dry it, then reheated to room temp. Then if the RH was too low, there were spritzers in the ceiling to bring it bac
  10. You guys are costing me some money—can’t resist cigar books. It’s a sickness. One time I carried around 30 pounds of books from Estanc Duaso for 10 hours through half of Barcelona.
  11. The (probably apocryphal) claim is that the Redskins were the last to allow black players and Dallas had integrated early on, but who knows what the real reason is. In any event it’s something I wondered about for years and years living there. All the black dudes I asked about it said they were Cowboys fans because their older relatives were Cowboys fans. Never met a white Cowboys fan there that wasn’t from Texas though. Now to be fair, it’s hard to find a Redskins fan these days who isn’t beat down, so it’s possible a lot of fans jumped ship over to Dallas since you lived there.
