Default Re: A finer draw + thicker smoke..

I'm not gonna claim to understand that formula but it seems to me that in order for there to be a constant there would have to be a contained (or "constant") environment. The hose is not such, it's a passageway, your lungs could fill the role of a constant containment area and I could see the smoke concentrating there, but thats well past the taste buds... maybe on the exhale it makes a diff?
