    Today's Smoke 2022

    It is FINALLY time. I’ve been impatiently waiting on this cigar since @CigSid sent it to me back in March. It’s been “properly stored” since then, and today marks two full weeks in the dry box. I’ll be smoking this one in a few hours as 2021 turns the page to 2022. I plan on having a fire lit...

    Mr. Fields provides a nice "Welcome Home"

    Finally got around to opening all of the mail that arrived in my absence, and there was a hell of a bomb from @jfields lurking in the pile! Thanks, John. The backstory on those means as much as the cigars, themselves. Sorry if you've been waiting on confirmation of receipt for a while, but...

    More than just an internet forum, we are...

    It's been said countless times to countless noobs, but CigarP Ass is so much more than just an internet forum. It truly is (*insert Dom Toretto here*) family. This post is just sort of a blanket "thank you" for all everyone has done for my daughter and I over the past two'ish months. I...

    IT'S NOT EVEN MY HOUSE!

    Chester, I am truly speechless with this one. Completely unexpected, but INCREDIBLY useful! Thank you, brother. Thank you.

    Just when I thought I've read it all...

    I figured that I had just about come to the end of everything stored in the halls of the Library of Congress, when a box showed up today with a book I never even imagined I could ever get my mitts on. I honestly don't know what to say, Floyd. Thank you, brother. Thank you. It's in good...

    INTERNATIONAL INCIDENT!

    BREAKING NEWS: The Mad Photographer strikes again! At this hour it is unknown exactly how many casualties are in the wreckage, but we do have confirmation that the man only known to authorities as "The Picher Taker" has now crossed international boundaries with his unprovoked attacks on...

    Was CP affected by the major outage today?

    I was not able to get on to CP earlier (not even the regular 404 message -- just a white screen with some other text). I just saw on a CNN update that there was a worldwide major internet outage that hosed countless major websites and servers. Was this knocked offline by that, as well? Just...

    Happy Birthday, Ben!

    Package arrived today from @modo22, and my eyes got a bit misty. A bit moist. Moist, I tell you. Each item had incredible thought behind it. I'm not sure what means the most to me from that box: the tobacco (for reasons), the handwritten and heartfelt note, or the single sock that Amanda...

    Regionals information

    Though I often don't know what I don't know when it comes to CCs, I'm not afraid to admit when I know what I don't know. A full understanding of regional releases is one of those things I never really grasped. I know I'm not the only one, either! Here's an explanation of REs from Half Wheel...

    Question for the experts about profile

    How does each marca retain the essence of their profile even though there are so many blends, but only so many sources of tobacco in Cuba? I mean, the RA Regional I smoked tonight was fanfuckingtastic. I can't tell you anything about the nuances I was getting, aside from Ramon Allones. A...

    The Impossible Burger 10-Year Anniversary Contest (WE HAVE A WINNER!)

    It has been brought to my attention that this month will mark my tenth year here on CigarPass. As a thank you for those who have put up with me for this long (or are just getting to know me), I am offering my first contest. The purpose of this contest is to encourage folks to do a deep-dive...

    We are really going to have to make Bill start paying for these mailboxes...

    Thanks, @CigSid. I was expecting something we had come to an agreement on, but rules of engagement obviously don't matter to Bill, and the embassy was nearly destroyed from the inside. And here I was just worried about being the one to spread COVID about the place and be the cause of shutting...

    That Texas weather is making the animals do weird things...

    The dogs, in particular. I received a rather large box in the mail today from deep in the heart of Tejas. Seems Ed, @Pugman1943, felt the need to darken my mail room with some wonderful gifts for the entire family. Some are meant to be eaten, some are meant to be (adorable) and practical, and...

    Miss. St. / Tulsa Post Game Brawl

    Anyone see that?!? I just caught the highlights of it on ESPN.com, and I haven't seen a brawl like that in a long, long time. Usually, even if it's a bench-clearer, there are a few punches and shoves -- maybe a helmet swing, if you are playing the Steelers -- but this was an all out riot on...

    Today's Smoke 2021

    I think that 2020 was a rough year for many people for a variety of different reasons; some of them obvious to 2020, and some of them more personal. While a few folks may have had a great year (sincerely, congratulations), most would prefer to never speak of 2020, again. And with that, we...

    Adventures in Orthopaedics!

    I figured I'd just make a post about it since I'm getting a bunch of PMs, and typing one-handed isn't as easy as Brad made it out to be... As a lot of you know, my dumb ass found a way to break my arm on Saturday night (live on the v-herf!), requiring a woken wife, an ambulance ride, surgery...

    ISO: Need some electronics shopping help from Stateside friends, please

    Hi! I've got a big favor to ask: Would someone be willing to help me out to track down a Nintendo Switch from a store somewhere? We've been trying to buy one for our daughter for a while, but they are perpetually sold out over here, and can't find them online (Amazon, etc) without jacked...
