    Yea. Lots I wish my dad had taught me. In his defense, he tried somewhat, but I either wasnt ready (probably only very slightly true), wasnt listening (Often true), or he was not very effective in communicating his idea (often true).

    He did teach me a great deal about camping, guns, cars, fixing stuff though

    3 out of 16 are about smoking!

    It is quite interesting that with each generation, parents have been spending more time with their children yet the feeling of not being taught enough gets more. Or seems like getting more. If you were dying at 50 or living through a war, you probably didn’t have much time to think about whether your parents taught you the right things lol.

      Tobacco is tobacco, unless it is in a machined cigarette. Then it is a bit of leaf, a bit of rat turds, and a boatload of chemicals that do everything from making you addicted to making the thing go out so you don’t burn your house down.

      Pipe smoking is substantially different from cigars. When I get around to explaining pipe smoking, you will see.
