    Okay, I have an embarrassing question: how the heck do you pronounce "latakia"? The only time I've ever heard it spoken is by Zsa Zsa Gabor in that silly commercial (can't even remember what it was for!), and I'm not taking her word on it...

    Not a stupid question at all. Since Latakia is in Syria, I figured I'd see if I could find a Syrian saying it. Unfortunately, since the civil war has been pretty bad there, I could. Here you go. She says latakia at around 1:43-1:46 when she is siging off.

    and here's another woman saying it at 4:17 - 4: 23.

    Okay, I guess Zsa Zsa had it right after all.

    I'd just hate to meet one of you guys in "real life" and suddenly realize that I couldn't talk about tobacco...

    I'm down with this idea. A thread for stupid pipes and questions!
    So a stupid pipes walks in a bar, and the bartender says, "why the long stem"?
