    The Durham smell back then was pretty nice, fairly sweet...I took the cigarette making tour a couple of times, most interesting. Also, it was weird.

    When I lived on Central Campus, I relished the days where the winds would shift and we would get heavy doses of cured tobacco scent.

    Weird? Sounds like wacky tobaccy.

    Just a tidbit from my visit (which was fascinating, the Liggett and Myers plant turned out 200 million cigarettes/day, or so they said. As one would have imagine in those days, our tour guide was a young attractive woman.
    The whole process was heavily automated...hundreds of very impressive German machines which funneled the tobacco into one ultra long rolling paper, which moved full tilt down the machine...the paper was then cut into 20 cigarettes per pack, then 10 packs per carton, all high speed automated, and away they went.

    The noise was deafening...the young attractive female guide has to shout to make herself heard, so she doesn't notice the worker behind her (wearing the standard khaki uniform) who is making lewd pelvic thrusts behind her back, and yucking it up.
    It went on for some time. Weird.

    no doubt, although I like the whole chicken leg/thigs on the grill, too. Maybe I can develop a four legged chicken?

    Let's push the limits, though I'm unlikely to do worse than what the turkey guys currently do, creating breast heavy birds that can't even stand up...once they hear about my four legged birds, they're going to be green with envy.

    I was fully aware when I wrote that that there would be some nice responses, but this is what we're here for, right?
