Thank you very much for the reply, Vesperae. I'd like to learn and read up a lot more on proper techniques that RYO smokers use, since I seriously doubt the few friends I have who smoke will ever switch to RYO, plus it's EXTREMELY hard as hell for me to socialize with others who I don't know due to the fact I'm introverted. Plus, too many of my friends(and unfortunately with rare exceptions, relatives too) are the ignorant non-smoker types who aren't totally anti-smoking(you know, not to the degree ex-smokers are, i.e. Michael Bloomberg), but could care less about ANYTHING relating to smoking issues.
I found this person on youtube who purchased this high-tech MYO electronic injector(Premier Excel), and I'd love one day to specifically purchase this(which matches the fact I'm a low-maintenance person myself):
Can you explain more about what home top dressing involves, when it comes to RYO cigarettes and making ones similar to mentholated cigs? And how does this work with the infamous 190 proof Everclear? Just know I'm not very good with scientific concepts, which I mostly blame on the fact I (almost always) constantly had constantly crappy teachers/professors for scientific classes in my younger collegiate/schooling years.
Finally, what are some great message boards on the subject of RYO/MYO cigarettes? I'd prefer to be steered towards ones that are geared toward those that have the least beforehand knowledge on RYO tobacco, but have always wanted to get their feet wet(so to speak) doing so. And thanks for giving me the heads up that loose/bulk tobacco manufacturers have been shying away from flavorings, that makes me pretty disappointed and makes me want to perhaps trying to emulate and make the flavorings on my own. Perhaps a store that greatly specializes in spices(i.e. http://www.thespicehouse.com/info/stores.html , and there probably is a local equivalent of such a store not too far from wherever you may live) would be a good thing to combine bulk tobacco with, after I purchase some bags of it?
