The logic of his approach is what impressed me. Bacterial cultures,
and tissue samples, even whole organs -- they all need to be stored at
precisely the right temperature and humidity for very extended periods,
which is exactly what cigar smokers require. So why do we bother with
mass-produced boxes or converted wine fridges and the like?
Yeah...put your $3 smokes in a $5000 humidor.
(I'm reminded of the piece about the Coloradoans that have their $8000
mountain bike strapped to the roof of their $800, 37 year old VW.)
