This sounds kind of unhealthy, but tobacco lovers from around the world have put their smoking skills to the test at the Cigar Smoking World Championship in Thailand. The contest featured 17 men and five women, and each competitor got a cigar and two matches. They had to smoke the cigar for as long as possible without it going out or losing its ash. Swedish competitor Mikael Petersson won after smoking his cigar for one hour, 47 seconds, but no competitors got close to the world record of three hours, 40 minutes. (UPI)
