When I was young (God...did I really just say that) EVERYBODY smoked. We used to take the bullets out of .22 shells, shake out a small bit of tobacco from a cigarette and replace it with the powder from the .22. Then we'd stuff some tobacco back in the end to hide it and offer it to an unsuspecting friend. They'd get about 1 good draw off it before the powder went up like a sparkler - Priceless.
