Red Man or Apple Sun Cured - left the Skoal in 69 when I moved from the Pac NW.

This is a good learning experience for me. I didnt know that crack made you paranoid and sort of slow in the thought process area...

Camel straights were the choice of the tough guys--

I did see that a pack of nonfunny cigarettes now costs $10 in NYC (talk about your hedonic whatchamacallit!). As a two-plus-pack-a-dayer in the early 70s I'd be broke if I still smoked.

Those tough guys don't look as tough dragging around their oxygen bottles...

I remember cigarettes being $0.35 pack or so in 1972, back home in Indiana. On my senior trip to NYC that spring, cigs were a buck a pack in the machine in the hotel lobby. Outrageous!!

Take another hit, then take note that you can actually make more than one point per post rather than 5-6 posts in a row.

Its complex technology, so go slow.

Just so you know, you asked that a couple of other times already. Maybe my advice to take another hit wasnt good advice.

I'm a monofilament guy and frankly couldnt catch a fish unless I fell in the water and it got stuck in my pants, so I cant help you with your fishing line question.

Maybe you could find a fishing forum that would be more helpful?

Pardon me for trying to make sense of this, but doesn't Jeopardy give you the answer, and you have to give the correct question?
