My latest cool zippo story...

Late night at the bar, I see these two attractive women who step out on the balcony. I strike up a small conversation with them. After a while one of them pulls out a cigarette. I say "Can I light…Continue

I'm quite glad I could help with the tagline. I'm happy to say I believe it rings true. From lighting up a cigarette to starting a camp fire and even as far as providing survival in the field, you cannot do better than a zippo.

If I might say, I've recently listened to one of the AoM podcasts and they were discussing the drive in men to chose a more expensive but lasting quality product over cheap quantity oriented products. I see this as true for the zippo. If cared for appropriately, it will give you a lifetime of service and be passed on to your young ones.

A friend of mine has his grandfathers army issue zippo from WWII. It still works perfect and his eyes light up with pride whenever he has occasion to use it.

I've wanted to try the pipe lighter for a while now. Found a bundle package with a peterson pipe and a zippo pipe lighter but trying to save some funds before I buy it.

Sadly just lost my only zippo. Received it as a gift when I joined the Fire Department so I'm pretty sore about it.

Zippo is a real mans lighter.

How about personal stories involving Zippos?

I just bought a chrome pipe lighter and it works like a charm. No I know some pipe smokers out there will look down on me for not using matches but I just love the sound a Zippo makes when you open and close it.

Is this negligence?

I've been working in a department store (Belk) inside of a mall for almost three years now. I've never had any security problems and I've always felt safe up until last Friday. I departed from school around 2:20 and I arrived at work at 2:40pm for my 3 o'clock shift. Belk employees have to park on the third floor of the parking deck which I've been doing. On this particular day, the deck was a bit fuller than usual due to the Easter weekend so I parked in the very back of the deck against the…See More

Admiring aspects of times of oppression

I was having a conversation with a woman today and I made a positive comparison to the style and composition of women in the Antebellum South. An African-American lady overheard me speaking and became extremely angry that I made a positive reference to a time when her ancestors were enslaved. I asked her if she thought the bubonic plague was the only thing going on before the European Renaissance, then I asked her if taxes would be the only reason an American would have stayed loyal to Britain…See More
