Humidor in need of your help.

Ah, the time has come, and passed, I am now in my 41st year. The
longevity of my grandparents (and they were grand - and are sorely
missed) combined with my liking of the leaf, and fine Scottish whisky
lead me to believe that 80 could be about my limit... if I'm lucky. So
let us be generous and say that I am now in my middle years.
In celebration of my reaching 50% of expected time allotted, my
beautiful wife purchased for me a humidor of proportions I can only
dream of filling. A photograph of an almost identical 'dor is available
at the end of this link: http://184.108.40.206/asc/humi1.jpg, and another
at the end of this link: http://220.127.116.11/asc/humi2.jpg (I say
'almost' identical, as far as I'm aware, the only difference between
that one and mine is that mine belongs to me).
Now, I am at a loss, the humidor is going to be most efficient if it has
cigars inside. I don't think filling it to 100% of it's capacity (400
according to the advert) would be ideal, it would be more difficult for
the air to circulate. However, I also believe that filling it less that
50% would also be inefficient. My reasoning is thus: cigars have volume,
the volume of a cigar replaces the same volume of humidified air, if the
cigar is not there, then there is much more humidified air, humidified
air contains moisture, surely it can't be good to have *that* much
moisture circulating around the very few cigars I currently own?
So I come to the reason for my post, I am a poor man, in a country which
places an extortionate burden on any individual who enjoys finely
matured tobacco products that have been crafted with great care into
cigars that are of the greatest pleasure to smoke. Many of you will have
seen posts I have made in the past lamenting the level of taxation, paid
by a Englishman, to his government, for the pleasure of smoking cigars.
You may also have seen posts in which I have compared the prices of
British and overseas vendors, in which case you cannot but be horrified
by the lengths to which this government will go to extract revenue from
it's subjects. With this in mind I am sure you realise that my hope of
efficiently using this humidor, by filling it to +/-80% capacity, is
beyond the fortune of most Englishmen, but this goal *can* be reached
with your help. Yes, *you*, wherevever in the world you are, can help
this attractive little humidor fulfil it's potential. I'm not asking for
your money, this isn't a crass usenet begging post, no! Your help can be
much more personal, if you can contribute just a few cigars, your
donation will go a long way to helping a poor empty humidor fulfil it's
potential, and be a happy humidor. Did you look in your humidor today?
Aren't there cigars in there that just don't fit? Cigars that you know
you're not going to smoke for sometime, because they're too young,
because you've got better ones to smoke first? Well, why take up
valuable space in *your* humidor with cigars you won't smoke for years?
Free up that valuable real-estate for new purchases, and at the same
time do not just a good deed, but a great deed, help an empty humidor
fulfil it's potential, donate today.
The address for your donations, in an easy "cut'n'paste" format, can be
found at: http://18.104.22.168/asc/address.html
I thank you for your time, and thank you for making a new humidor very
Don't forget, donate today!
 Lousy science. What do you expect, this *is* a mooch?!
Justin C, by the sea.
It's got to be worth a try, hasn't it?
