Don’t Try This at Home, Kids

Doing a bit of research on a project that will likely not bear fruit (olives, in this case), and learned that Ian Fleming, author of the James Bond novels, died at age 56 after reportedly drinking a fifth of gin and smoking 75 cigarettes a day (triple-band Morley’s, of course).

We can’t all be Keith Richards.

  1. Correction: Fleming actually smoked Moreland cigarettes, a specialty brand blended of three tobaccos (hence the triple band). Ironically enough, Morley’s was the fictious brand that “Cancer Man” smoked in The X-Files.
