We used to make dry ice at work. Wonderful stuff, fill the toilets and urinals with it, put it down the back of peoples pants, load water fountains with it, throw it into wash tanks, chill beer with it. Wonderful stuff.

We also used 100% vinegar, and we would make bombs out of that and a nucleating agent that was 50/50 citric acid and sodium bicarb. Plus, we played with fire and made air guns that we shot ball bearings at each other with. Ah, those heady days of organized labor. Let's not forget the knifemaking either, or the gambling. Or all those love nests scattered throughout the plant. Oh, to be young and work in manufacturing back in the good old days!

I used to put Mentos in Pepsi!

I hear that's what really powers Santa's sleigh. rendeer

We better get back on topic or...  Hey, you're one of the Administrators.  

I missed this last year, seems as though I was bombing someone.  I've turned over a new leaf and will try to do better this year by letting Santa do the dirty work. Once more, I will be a paragon of innocence.Rolling Eyes

Yes...er, I'm sure that will be the case. I know that deep inside you're the very soul of guiltlessness. Rolling Eyes

Just over a week before we start. I have already placed a nearly 5 pound order with one of the etailers. Just in case, you understand. We got a pretty nice crowd, and I have a bit of time scheduled to handle the drawings. So remember, sometime on November 10th I will sit down, do the drawings, and then start sending PM's with the information. Help me out by checking your PM boxes often on the 10th. My outbox will fill up quick. When you guys read your PM, that will free up more space for me to send more PM's. Be sure to free up space in your own message boxes so my message to you does not get stuck in my outbox. Inboxes, outboxes, saveboxes can only hold so many messages and you have to delete something to free up space.

Also, I heard that the initial shipment of Gaslight to Smoking Pipes got cleaned out by a fat man in red britches. So he's at it already! Heard he really put the hurts on the 1792 Flake. And was a bit distraught that there was no Cob Plug. santa

Just more confusing I think. It works out as long as people check in frequently.

Also, just so y'all know. At least one BoB will need an early mailing. Maybe a week earlier. Let me know if that's a problem. I know some of youse guys can't wait till a little closer to the big day. We should have plenty of time to do a little research on your victim......ummmmm...errr...person. Then made a few calls to etailers, perhaps stop in at a local B&M. Or dig in the cellar. Pick up a few goodies, and get it mailed out with time to spare.

Which reminds me. I need to find some time to get over to Champaign to the B&M's over there. Have fun! santa

Can't wait, last year was a blast. The local goodies are almost better than the baccy products.

Just a few days away until we start. The etailers are trying to rush those cargo ships into port, and offered bribes to the UPS men and women to hurry along any incoming package so they can fill all possible orders. The local B&M's have started new displays and holiday deals. They are after all, Santa's helpers in disguise. santa

All this talk about buying this and etailing that has me worried. I'm not planning on buying anything. I do however have a crummy shop full of cheap garage sale tools and lots of raw materials, plus a hoard of tobacco and cigars stashed in my 'Cave of Wonders' cache. I'm planning an aged 'baccy bonanza and a few hand crafted items for my target...and encourage any bros out there to mirror my chea...er, cost effective plan. I'll easily exceed the minimum level, which seems rather small to me.

Yeap. I'm with you as well - though I do have a few seemingly often sold out items from recent TAD escapades I might include. Oh and I have those bitters I made this year, and I do plan on whipping up a few batches of toffee for the holidays...

As a newb, I have limited amounts of stuff, but, I am certainly in for doing whatever I can for my recipient, even if it means buying from an etailer, so I don't really see it as a bad thing per se. Maybe I'm just a rogue? Or maybe I'm lame...

You only have to meet the minimum requirements. Don't feel as if you must do more. Some of these guys are generous because they can be. And that is fine. And then sometimes, you get crocodile heads, or something else unique. Some of these guy have memories like elephants. If you posted years ago some place that you always wanted/needed some little thing. They will remember that. It's uncanny. santa

There will be tobacco related items, but I'm kind of on a similar arc to BH and Scotties. The local flavors too.

The key to this is to have fun. Whatever you are capable of is fine. I'm sure you've looked back at the previous years and seen the entertainment value we gather from being expectant children despite our semi-adult status. Enjoy the ride, Christmas comes but once a year. Myself, maybe I'll get to strike back at my last Santa.

I'm semi-prepared to go in any one of about four different directions, depending on who I draw -- no doubt it will be someone that pulls me in some new direction. The whole deal (as others have said) is to have fun! It's the one time a year some of us are nice!What a Face

Fun. Indeed! That's the thing. And COOKIES!


And please don't think I was saying that 'buying' is neither a good thing nor a proper direction. Some of us live in areas with highly recommended B&M outfits...like me. Here in little old Oregon City exists a true world class blender, Steve Books. Formerly of Rich's in Portland, now on his own in the House of Calabash he has a blending history that NO one in the industry can match. And his blends are both unique and succulent...and unfortunately, EXPENSIVE! But ya just never know what will find its way into Santa's sleigh. After all...it IS Christmas!

I'm mostly excited to find out who my recipient is and get planning! I have a couple cool ideas too! santa 

So yeah, not really stressed about it or anything. Just trying to understand typical protocol.

As you were, BH Razz
