    In honor of ccwco's thread on pipe smoking grievances (and the airing thereof) I thought it prudent to make a pipe smoking feats of strength thread (it is nearing Festivus after all). So what are some of your ultimate feats of pipe smoking strength? Smoking an entire tub of M79? In one sitting? In a pipe ghosted with Lakeland sauce (for those of you who do not like it)? Let's hear 'em!

    Um...after about six years trying, I finally smoked a bowl to the bottom without a relight a couple of weeks ago... Not so outrageous, but if I've ever done it before it was so long ago that I don't remember it!

    Dwaugh has lasted here on the forum so long without anyone strangling him, it simply defies logic. :confused:

    My continued posting in this forum, after suffering the slings and arrows of member and moderator alike during the "Bulldog days of Summer" affair.
    I still bear the scars, sniff sniff...

    I once lit and smoked a pipe under water... I mean, in front of my fish tank :oops: Hey, it's got like half a dozen sunken ships in it.

    I have ordered over $100 worth of tobacco several times. If looks could kill, the old warhorse would have murdered me after the first order.:(

    I am able to repeatedly lift a Sasquatch-sized-monstrosity overfilled with dense-flake.
    And jaw strength? Well... pitbulls got nuthin' on me.

    I recently smoked an entire bowl of C&D Burley Flake #3 in a pipe with a 3 inch deep x 1 inch circumference bowl. And lived to tell about it.

    I've smoked a bowl of IF, UF, and two bowls of SG Black XX... in one sitting.
    I've gnawed entirely through a MM stem.
    I've smoked every one of my 13 pipe rotation in a day.
    I've managed to not clean my POS pipe for two weeks now (is that a bad thing?)
    Most importantly... I've stopped caring about the BS and haggle of being a "proper" pipe smoker and I just do my own damn thing.

    From my experience, this is the scariest thus far.

    It would be hard to strangle me over the internets.
