Dear Inn Bok,

      Facinating story!
I didn't know Helmut Schmidt snuffed. And my assumption was that only Orthodox Jews snuffed today, and usually just on Sabbaths and Holy Days when one was not allowed to 'light up' a cigarette.


Dear Inn Bok, Joey,

I didn't know that too so I went on to search for pictures at once and found the following. Seems like he'd been using a contemporary looking snuff box to store snuff. Why didn't any Chinese official or diplomat he may have possibly met introduce the snuff bottle to him I wonder... Roll Eyes

By the way, I heard a local antiques store owner said that in Hong Kong, there're some older generation Chiuchow people (a.k.a. Tiaochiu in their own dialect) who are still snuffing too.
