    Yep it's contagious! You've got the affliction and just an fyi.. I don't think there's a cure....
    Just wait until the TAD kicks in... I bet you'll be getting that too - if you haven't gotten bitten already...

    It is indeed! You'll likely do what a lot of us do - you'll buy pipes indiscriminately for awhile and then pare back your collection to just the ones you smoke a lot or that have sentimental value. And then you'll buy a pipe here and there when you see something outstanding.

    I used to own upwards of 300 pipes - now it's down to about 60 keepers.

    Excellent diagnosis Doctor. I was embarrassed to admit having caught two afflictions so early in a relationship but there may or may not be a TAD-related box on its way from SP.com...................

    But I mean you have to have something to PUT in the pipes don't you - that only makes sense right?

    No cure you say?

    Yeah I can already tell there are some I gravitate to more than others - even with an extremely modest collection

    Well there is a cure but, I don't recommend it. It's very painful.. so, I'll keep my mouth shut for now.

    I'm sure there is a cure, but with all of us here to eagerly enable you it would never take.

    Very likely - and right now I'm enjoying it too much to stop.

    Yes Morse you did good to get thru on the phone line. Just watch out though-it gets worse from here on out. TAD will be infecting you next!

    I personally know a way to avoid a lot of this, but it is painful, and aggravating... It's called the empty wallet syndrome.;)

    Empty Wallet Syndrome is also an effect of too much PAD. ;)

    I just signed up for ebay yesterday but I am convinced it will be my downfall. I signed up and started looking at pipes and now my PAD has kicked into overdrive!
