Steve,

This isn't really related to pipes (as far as I know), but your
mentioning the upcoming completion of your thesis has me
wondering what you're getting your degree in.  

I'm interested in this kind of stuff because I've been feeling a
sweet nostalgia for graduate school.  We live right next to Ohio
State University, and my wife has gone back to complete her BA.
Since you're still in the middle of the fray, you could probably
cure my nostaliga with a dose of reality.  :-)

Steve

Hello Steve,

Could told in the last pipes digest that the effect of difficult
sucking of a cigar could be compaired to what happens in a pipe, when
something obstructs the pipe. But I do not understand how you can
compare this in a cigar? I do not see how tabacco could do that, or is
the tabacco wronbgly roled so that there is at some place to much
tabacco, and when this tabocco gets hot, it enlarges, could that be
the reason??? Are there people who have some scientific explanation?

All the best,

Victor

[ It might swell as it gets wet, or a piece of tobacco might break off
and get lodged in some part of the cigar. That's my opinion, as a
non-expert; anyone have any more informed ideas? -S. ]
