It's a wonderful hobby. One of the few tobacco "habits" that others often find pleasant to be around. Contemplative. Relaxing. I started years ago with a cheap pipe and some capt. black and it's been wonderful!

"Whatever the price of the Chinese Revolution, it has obviously succeeded not only in producing more efficient and dedicated administration, but also in fostering high morale and community of purpose. The social experiment in China under Chairman Mao's leadership is one of the most important and successful in human history." David Rockefeller

“People think they have taken quite an extraordinarily bold step forward when they have rid themselves of belief in hereditary monarchy and swear by the democratic republic. In reality, however, the state is nothing but a machine for the oppression of one class by another, and indeed in the democratic republic no less than in the monarchy.” Friedrich Engels

The Pope condemned smoking in the year 1590. People are finally catching on to what he said, over 400 years later.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 23930598


Pius X, who was the pope from 1903 to 1914, called a bishop onto the carpet to reprimand him for his scandalous misbehavior with wine, women and song, and to correct his wrongs patiently. The pope offered the errant bishop a cigar from the papal humidor on his desk. The bishop declined the offer with the protestation, "I do not have that vice, Your Holiness," to which His Holiness replied, "If cigars were a vice, I would not offer you one, for you have quite enough vices already."

Russia uses normalized statistics to prove that the Chernobyl event doesn't cause cancer. One of my mathematician friends can prove anything with misleading statistical analysis.

You have the same probability of developing SOME form of cancer as anyone on the planet regardless of lifestyle. Ask any Oncologist.

This is taught in medical school.

And no Russia did not use normalization they used median deviance which is only accurate when normalizing the median which when purposed over an entire population is effectively a zero statistical division.

Two completely different things sir.

Pipe smoking is a very efficient way to enjoy tobacco. There are so many blends, you certainly could try a different one to suit just about any mood. I still enjoy it on occasion, having found Orlick to be a very smooth full flavored smoke, and Escudo for a bolder flavor. There are a variety of pipes,some of very modern design if you are self conscious about how you appear with a conventional pipe, and are good for that quick smoke break.

" art" ?

If pipe smoking is an art, then taking a crap must be art too.

The "art" of laying cable.

Because cigarettes are mass marketed, quick, cheap and full of nicotine and other chemicals to keep customers hooked.

I started smoking a pipe earlier this year and have found it to be a very rewarding hobby, and I have no plans to give it up. Pipe tobacco is a world apart from mass produced cigs. The stuff coming from Cornel and Diehl and GLPease is beautiful - full of flavour and no chemical additives.
I can go weeks without a pipe, but tend to enjoy one bowl a day as a nightcap. It forces you to slow down and contemplate life, which is a good thing in todays fast paced world. I have never smoked cigs, but can certainly reccomend a pipe. As for the cancer risk, EVERYTHING causes cancer these days and alcohol can give you mouth cancer just as easily. Enjoy everything in moderation. Tobacco has been abused in society and corporations are evil, that is why these health problems are occuring. Support the boutique producers and pick yourself up a nice briar, you cant go wrong.
