In the earlier centuries, the cigar was a trademark symbolizing romanticism and philosophical attributes. However, this was taken too seriously and cigar band collection has become a hobby since then.
Such people who have this hobby often buy cigars not to smoke rather save the band packets.

So next time you smoke, and someone asks for a packet, don’t be surprised.

You have heard of “doodling”, but what is “noodling”? It is the hobby of catching fish with bare hands practice mainly in the Southern United States. A noodler goes underwater to depths ranging from only a few feet to twenty feet and places his hand inside a discovered catfish hole. If all goes as planned, the catfish will swim forward and latch onto the fisherman’s hand, usually as a defensive maneuver, in order to try to escape the hole. If the fish is particularly large, the noodler can hook the hand around its gills.
