Well, if acclimation is intricate to one, I can see why one wouldn't want to participate in the consumption of tangier's. I use the 4/20 method (4 hours open, 20 hours closed) but it is very flexible and one doesn't need exact timing, just a little patience. To me it is just opening, stirring (regular practice), walking away, living, and if I remember 2-9 hours later, I close it. I don't find stirring every hour to be too important, but I do have fairly large tubs.

I also don't like the 'on demand' thing, it seems fairly superficial (can't think of a better word), and very impatient.

But I know in the end, we are both brick walls, and will only agree to disagree.
