Newb needing help with what it all means?

Can someone clear these up for me. The beard. Bombs. Passes. Help me understand so I can grow to be a big boy cigar man.

    The beard is tim blythe. You see him in the bottom left hand corner of the screen. He is your key to health, happiness, and all the women in the universe. By day, a cigar master, a customer service guru, and the lion tamer of Alex Svenson. By night, he teaches Brad Pitt how to look good. If the earth was struck by a giant asteroid, they would use the genes found in the beard to recreate the earth.....only better. Some conspiracy theorists suggest the government is going to blow the earth up, just so the beard can recreate it

    A bomb is when forum member sends another forum member a ton of sticks unexpectadly. Expecting the favor to be returned later.

    I'll let someone else explain a Pass.

    I would amend this a bit....bombs are indeed when one BOTL (Brother of the Leaf - a fellow cigar enthusiast) sends another an unsolicited package of cigars and/or cigar related items unexpectedly. However, I would generally say that it's more on account of the generosity of the sender, versus an expectation of future reciprocation. Obviously, there is a precedent of the receiver reciprocating, but as far as bombs go it's generally not expected.

    A pass is when several BOTL sign up, and one BOTL starts it. The starter fills up a box with several cigars - 10 to 20 or more - and it is sent to each signed-up BOTL one at a time. When you get it, take a couple and put in a couple, then pass it along to the next signed-up BOTL. At the end, it goes back to the starter, ideally with numerous different cigars.

    This. A bomb is an act of generosity and/or appreciation. No return bomb expected.

    It was a typo by someone on this board, when trying to type BOTL. It was funny, and catchy sounding, so it became a bit of a running joke. Thus the BORK was born.
