    I'm afraid I'd have a bad case of leather tongue the next day.

    I think I would be played out after a few bowls.

    First let me say that the extended cut of LOTR is the only cut. The theatrical version always felt to me as if I'm being 'pushed' and rushed through the story - no time to breathe or respire - so many awesome scenes were left out...
    Secondly: Yes: From time to time I watch all movies on a three days stretch - and (that's quite funny) I smoke a lot of bowls when watching LOTR. IMO it's a perfect movie for pipe smokers - not only because a lot of pipe smoking is going on in the movies - instead I think it has something to do with the 'atmosphere'. :)

    Never seen it. However, when I was off on duty injury in January this year, I would watch my box set of Sherlock Holmes over and over and smoke almost the entire time. I went through more tobacco that month than I did in all of 2011. Lol

    I made it through a whole bowl a few times before something broke or my wife summoned me for something...

    12 hours of back to back movies is more than I can do. I could definately watch 1-2 movies a day everyday with no problem though.

    I cant smoke indoors, so watching a movie while smoking is like some crazy elusive fantasy that only others get to experience.....but if I could, that would be a great series.

    I could also smoke the $#!+ out of the 20+ bond movies too.

    Well I hurt my back on Sunday, so I have been smoking what seems like one bowel after another, whether it is while watching movies or watching my wife work. Lol. It has been keeping me occupied while I can't really do much else.

    I found when I injured my back at work and being on pain meds, that the meds made me wanna smoke more.

    Done marathons a few times. All the Aliens/Predator movies in one go, when it was -40 and blowing like something possessed outside. That xxl IMP meerschaum can go close to 2 hours quite easily. A good book has had me reading and smoking all night until the sun coming up is a surprise. Haven't ever done the whole LOTR series in one sitting.

    When I do those marathons, I use a Sav Hurcules. It is huge!
