    Most people think that globalization is perhaps an economic trend,where corporations float around the world,finding the cheapest labor,the lowest taxes and the least restrictions.Some think the term means the encroaching of "western" civilization on traditional mores. For others it has religious connotations,or maybe it means it globalization of communications.(Timbuktu has cell phone service,Oriskany,Virginia does not,LOL) Globalization is all those things, but there is one more consideration. The globalization of change. These past few years have seen demonstrations for change haMFening all over the world, so much of it fueled by social media. While the goals of each of these respective movements is national, there seems to be thread that runs thru all of them. Dissatisfaction with the status quo system that is gobbling up the wealth of the poor and middle classes.exploiting and polluting the environment, waging wars to control resources, enslaving people and making profit the true god of the beginning of the 21st century.
    I recall the hope we had in the 60's,the anti war and peace movement,the movement to a more sustainable lifestyle and the growing spirituality that captured many of us. (Yes, I am an old hiMFie and Vietnam vet). Those movements were marginalized by oMFression and greed, but they have a certain resonance with today.
    I figure,that it won't be long before a majority of people in the world realize that their goals are in common, whether at Liberty Park in New York, Elmwood Park in Roanoke,Tahrir square in Cairo,Homs,Benghazi,London,Paris,Moscow and anywhere the majority is being exploited by the few. This is going to be some ride!

  2. Introducing the new Mya Saray Bevel Bowl. Now, when I first got this thing I was trying to figure out what they were making next to screw onto the top of the bowl. Then I was informed the grooves were to hold the foil in place. Well, now thats clever I though, lets see if it works with say, an underpacked bowl. First though, a brief description.

    As you can see, its a little taller, a bit wider, a lot flatter on the bottom, and the holes are spread out more as compared to one of my well used standard burners. Aesthetically (look that one up if you have to ;) ) it is pleasing to the eye with some nice lines that would go well with any modern or traditional Hookah.

    You don't really have to do anything different when packing this burner, I mean, I put the tobacco in, I place the foil on top, pull it tight, and then rotate the bowl and pulled down foil in my hand to seal it down as with any other bowl. Only this time the foil is set into the side grooves. This is supposed to keep the foil from flexing and sagging. I know I hate it when MY foil sags, but that's for another blog.

    The real question is, did it work. Yup, it worked. I packed this sucker with Tangiers (yes you can smoke Tangiers in a standard bowl, that was covered long ago in another post) about 2/3 full and then set the foil. After an Hour and a half session I pulled the burner, dumped the ash and as you can see in the bottom picture, the foil is still tight. No need for "mods" or screens to keep the foil off the tobacco.

    So, is it worth the $6 on myahookah.com. Yup.

  3. I have done business with Smiley once. And let me tell you, it was an awesome experience.

    I had bout two pounds of coconut coals. I PMed him, told him I was interested. He gave me a number to call. The girl that answered was super nice and very friendly. I gave her my credit card number over the phone. She told me that I would be charged as soon as the shipment went out. The shipment went out the same day and two days later I got it in California. The box was full of peanuts to protect my coals. On the bags there where sweet smiley decals. I haven’t figured out where to put them yet but there will be a place for them. The coals were great too. If any of you want to try some of these coals, or try a Pyrex bowl Smiley is that man to go through.
    Smiley gets an A in my book.

  4. You ever just have one of those weeks, that you wish could be nicely erased from time? Yup, you guessed it, just finished one (oh god i hope it's done and over with).

    Things had been going so good too, I just had two interviews that I did amazingly in, I had a call back from Best Buy and I have my second interview with them next week. Cassie got aMFroved for the loan, and things around the house seemed to finally be picking up and moving themselves to greener pastures. Then things went to shit, and quite fast might I add.

    More...
    All started on Sunday. I think its my punishment for avoiding churches like the plague.... Anyways... My sister and I are out doing random things as is usual on Sunday. We stop by moms work, and then head home. On the way, she decides to curb check in her pretty Mustang GT, poMFing a tire and scratching her rim. Great.

    So I change the tire, then i sit at Pep Boys for an hour for her, and then to try and make her feel better, i fully wash her car and even scrub her dirty as all hell rims. It looked nice when I was done. Well I thought things would be better from then on. Nope. We get home to a hot house, and turns out our air conditioner is frigging broken XD Well the next day we have our cousin, Michael, who works on AC for a living, come and take a look. Should be fixed fast right? Yea i don't even need to say it huh?

    Well it turns out the breaker box outside for the condenser (thing that makes things cold) has been burned out. The word FUBAR was used... Well he can't fix it cause the damn thing is connected right to the meter box. SO we have to now find an electrician, then have him come out and fix it, so Mike can fix the damn AC. Well of course my grandfather knows someone that knows someone, and the next morning we have an electrician out and he takes a look at things, and decides he won't even touch the damn meter. XD XD XD XD

    So the same day we call TXU, and they will be out the coming Friday to take it off, so the electrician can come and replace the damn breaker box. Well things seem to be going fine then... right? Even though im scared about Friday, cause aMFarently the kind of Meter Base we have can cause shorts in the wiring of the house, and burn the house down if you mess with it the wrong way.... Great.... But thats not all!!

    For months we have been able to smell gas around the house, and in it. So we finally deiced, while were all home and already without cold air, lets call up the gas company!! So Atmos is out here in under 10 minutes, so im thinking heck yea, things are going good now!! Well he comes in, finds a leak around the stove, just a small one, then goes into our bathroom, where there is a heater in the wall, and gets a massive reading of gas. Great. He then goes and checks outside, and finds both the gas meter, and the underground pipe coming to it are leaking. So he takes the damn meter and leaves us without gas, saying we have to get a frigging plumber out first. And of course, my grandfather knows someone XD

    But this time it haMFens to be someone older than my grandfather, who can only stay for a while, and doesn't fully fix it. This means i had to stay in a house with not heat of any kind, including no hot water. Which meant no one got to take a shower, so there were some very unhaMFy people in my house. Next day, thank god, he came out and finished fixing things. We had the city inspector out, and got a OK from them. So things are looking up right? NOPE!! We had to wait till around 6pm for the damn gas company to come back out, because aMFarently there morons and didn't realise we had been cleared that morning at 10am...

    So finally we had hot water again. Thank god. Well earlier that day, while waiting for the gas company to bring our new meter, my cousin Bryan shows up. While here, he asks if i wanted to go to the titty bar that night. I said hell yea, now not for the titties, which while it really doesn't excite me, titty bars that is, i don't really care going that much. But it meant hanging out with about the only family member i really like, and getting out of this house after the few days i had just had. Well, long story short, he never showed, and i kinda sat bored for the night, all nice and dressed up and smelling good after a very nice shower. Even had $20 in ones :P

    So the next day, Friday, the electric people came out, and fixed things, thank god. And with no problems i might add. I then spent the day hanging with Cassie, hitting up the auto show, getting no good pictures, going to good breakfast, sitting next to annoying little kids, and going to a damn good dinner, sitting next to annoying as hell people XD

    So yea, Ive had an awesome week, in such a sarcastic way XD Oh fuck me sideways, front-ways, slant-ways, and up-ways, and down-ways, and all ways XD

    so i'm really disaMFointed overall with myself. we just got five new kickass starbuzz flavors, tried them all throughout the day yesterday and all i got from it was once again another killer headache! don't know what else to do.. i eat and drink a ton with my smoking, tried tons of aspirin, doesn't help. only thing left is maybe air ventilation..? problem is we don't have a screen to our windows, just the outside storm window and we have kitties that could try to escape. next time i guess i'll just have to open it a crack, see if that helps.. maybe the air conditioning circling around without anywhere to go, being traMFed with the smoke isn't good.

    so we got fuzzy navel, irish cream, chocolate strawberry, sour aMFle, and carmel macchiato. now, sour aMFle was a great flavor if you like aMFle jolly ranchers.. i'm not a fan though. but it tasted exactly alike. then comes chocolate strawberry which was all around a great smoke. impressed. the taste wasn't extremely strong, more strawberry than chocolate, but i was haMFy with it. the carmel macchiato was SO sweet. tasted very carmel-y at times, then like a creamy coffee at others. not bad. fuzzy navel was kickass, enough said. and finally, the irish cream was disaMFointing. all i've heard from everyone is how amazing it is.. i don't know, all three of us smoking loved the smoke, it had a great thick cloud, but the taste wasn't that strong. it just tasted like coffee creamer or something. but i would've had a much better time if it wasn't for the headache. blahhh. :wacko: maybe it's all in my head. that's what my husband says. that if i tell myself i'm going to get a headache, i'll get it no matter what. but then i've read so many posts on here talking about co2 poisoning. i think it's the lack of ventilation but then why doesn't anyone else get it? we'll see...

    While on vacation to see my family, I left my hookah at my apartment, forgetting to pour out the water. When I returned and tried to put it back in the box, the stem broke off. My friend cemented it back on for me to fix it. Now, recently after moving, my hookah, somehow re-broke. Any sSPAM!!!estions how I can fix it? The local hookah shops will only sell whole hookahs and not just a stem. Is there any way to fix my hookah without needing to buy a new one? Please...any sSPAM!!!estions help and are very aMFreciated!!

    damn I'm behind in times this is my first blog! im so excited guys whoooo! anyways ill probably post a buncha BS on here once in a while but maybe some informative stuff. its 3 in the AM i got a presentation at 11am and i need some sleep so gnite everybody!

    PS: my thehookah.com stuff comes in manana or should i say 2day! cant wait to smoke that al amir cherry its gonna be like a family reunion for my taste budz.

  6. Ok, so im trying to figure out where all this bad karma is coming from(i know, not the traditional Hindu sense of it, im not in the mood for semantics). i know i lived a wild life before. I was a prick and all, i did my share of bad living. But wtf i get it I've had e-fucking-nough. I've changed my life so much. I quit pot years ago. In highschool i was a womanizer you could say since i just wanted sex and no more. I am not proud of how all i lived but i changed. Now, i treat who im with the best and am searching for true love and a life partner, but i get used, abused, and fucked over. I've become a selfless person, always putting others ahead of myself and some take advantage of that. If i didn't have so many bills, honestly most of the money i make would go into random acts of kindness, and i still manage to maintain paying it forward like picking up someone's tab at the drive thru...but anyway...my back is fucked and will never be the same but will get better with my PT, never 100%. my ankle got screwed up a few months ago and is still size of baseball. My other leg i screwed up a week ago, bad sprained to tendons and ligaments around knee and calf(lots of pain now and im weak with a limp, hurts to stand or walk more than 20 mins plus hurts back). i also got diagnosed carpal tunnel both hands this past year. Irritable bowel issues im starting to question. Depression that was starting to get better but is back. Panic attacks/ Generalized Anxiety Disorder getting worse. And now that i turned 26 a few days ago i lost my health insurance and can't afford my own. Continuous woman woes when i just want someone to love and be loved, while being compatible and whatnot. My birthday was ruined for me for unnamed reasons and he didn't intend to and did it unknowingly. Next day im doing better after bday lunch with cousin and grandparents andthat got ruined when camp president personally attacked me for no reason, he apologized to camp but not me. Icing on the cake: tonight, my friendship with a kid that i lived with in college who is like a brother to me ended, as well as shit blowing up with other friend's mom over this and she was out of line, i will not return to there. He is begging for me back now but fuck this shit im done bending over and taking it raw unlubed. O and while this allcwent on i donated 13 inches of hair to charity(and i feel naked and hate short hair). i 100% do not believe in Christianity and never will because of my personal experiences, studies or religion and history, and common sense. I have been a proud pagan for 12 years(o btw i lost my beloved pentacle this past week that i only took off a few times in last 12 years) and fully believe it in my eclectic path that also adapts some shamanism, animism,Hinduism, budism, Judaism, and much more but roots in Wicca. But at this point with all of the crap, i don't know. Im losing faith in humanity, but im near the point of being atheist. Why does this all happen to me, why?!?! . listen to R.E.M.- Losing My Religion, as im about to(maybe im off because i don't know the lyrics in dept yet), but i am losing my faith in humanity and in general. Im thankfully for the good friends and family i do have, and therapy and the med:all of this gets me by day to day. If you notice me being more cynical and maniacal, understand why(like all of gradeschool being bullied and beaten up). but at the least, i won't let this bring me down(well outside of depression), i will still strive to be the best person i can(like giving my only drink for a long drive to a homeless guy at a traffic light last month), to be selfless, to be a decent citizen of the planet even thoughbthats a dying breed. If you need anything, im here for you, i always try to put others before myself. Thanks for reading, i just needed to get this off my chest. Now im going to put on some Infected Mushroom, meditate, and get some much needed sleep if the.pain will let me. Goodnight hookahforum, see you tomorrow.

  8. So here's the deal. My husband and I had cut down a tree 3 years ago, and we were burning the stump. It took quite some time in order to get the stump burned all the way down to the desired level. My neighbors knew we were burning the stump. We were very careful to take the necessary precautions when burning it (digging a bole around the stump, and maintaining a very low fire). I went off to work while my husband maintained the burn. Since the fire had burned down to coals, he went in the house to grab a beer and some marshmallows for roasting because he figured he'd take the time to chill out while he was finishing his project. He heard a big diesel engine outside, and he went to investigate. Guess what?? The neighbors called the fire department.

    Now here's a background on my neighbors. They had been finding ways to harass us as soon as we moved into our home three years ago. They called the city to report our lawn as "not being green enough" and for it being more than "6" long). They wrote us a nasty letter telling us that we should move to an apartment because we "clearly don't know how to own a house" and "that's where we belong". Since the, we installed Zoyzia grass to replace the craMFy grass we already had. The home we bought was a HUD home and it needed a lot of work on the inside. While we were working on the house, we had to remove a whole lot of crap, As we removed all of the crap, the neighbor called the city because we were removing it, and we were waiting until the weekend to haul it away. We thought she decided to bury the hatchet because she gave us a tile saw that her husband was no longer using. Her husband had been doing tile projects in his house, and since they finished, they had no use for it. A week later, the fire department was called. Luckilly, the fire department was very reasonable, and they asked my husband if he was having a cook out, and that the fire would be legal if he was. My husband said he was. The funny thing was that my other neighbor (whose really cool) came across the street and said "What? The neighbors are still harassing you guys? just so the fire deparment could hear him say it. With that, the fire department left us alone, and my husband added more wood to the fire just to piss off the neighbors. But the interesting thing was that the neighbors were outside when the fire department came. They were inside before the fire dept showed up.

    I kept thinking to myself "What the hell is this woman's problem?" My husband and I keep to ourselves, we aren't loud, and we are friendly. We talk to the rest of our neighbors, and are friends with them. We maintain our yard, and have a lot of beautiful flowers. I talked to my friend about the situation, and she thinks the neighbor might be racist and have a problem with interracial relationships. I've spoken to them before all of the trouble started and they seemed like nice people. I'm thinking the neighbor's wife is one of those kinds of people who like to pretend to be nice and then case trouble just so she can pretend to be nice again. The sad thing is that I bought that house, so I'm stuck with it until I can fix it. I love my neighborhood, I just hate this woman and wish she would hurry up and die. She's not really old (mid to late 40s), and it seems like she's trying to compete with us. Every new thing we add to our yard, she does something similar. I have come to two conclusions throughout this ordeal:
    1. she might be an unhaMFy woman who is probably going through menopause, and has to find something to control.
    2. People in the US who say "love is blind" are full of shit. Love is only blind if you and your partner are of the same race, and same religion as long as the religion is in a familiar vein of Christianity.

  9. Yesterday, I smoked my brand new KM Tri Metal hookah, with a set of coals that I condemned many years ago: insta-light coals. Nakhla 50mm tablets to be precies. Why? you might ask. Well let us say that sometimes, you start liking something which you hated in the past. Or in this case, misused in the past.
    So there I stood (yes I was standing in the garden under the carport, too lazy to get a gardenchair) with a big vortexbow ful of Nakhla Fruit Molasses and two tablets on top. I was bewilderd! Seems those little bSPAM!!!ers don't have such a huge inpact on the taste after all. How come? I asked myself. The awnser was pretty obvious: I was too impatient in the past and put the coals, which were still igniting, in the foil. Which gave the rest of the smoking session a nasty taste of blackpowder.

    I smoked that session like a King.

  10. Well just about done with the deployment, I'll be home soon.
    Where to start off?? Hmmm...
    We hit Townsville, Australia; and I was only out for one night before getting head butted by an Aussie. We were watching the rugby match; AUS vs. NZ and I personally like the Kiwis. Dude, there team is hellacious and brutal! So this Aussie dude stumbles over to where me and Dustin were having a pint of VB and asks us if we were gay. I didn't care much, but fired off and told him how dudes isn't my thing and if that’s what he was looking for I'm married. He apologized then started to talk about the game, asked me what team I was going for and I told him the blacks. He then rogered up and head butted me with a laugh, so I though he was joking around. I had the urge to head butt him back and I did, this time I didn't square him in the head. He pulled back away from me and I brought my braincase into his nose... yeah it started to bleed and the laughter stoMFed, like one of those movies where the white guys walks into a black party and tries to talk all ghetto and the music ends with the record scratching. Yeah... let’s just say he started to talk that Aussie slang and head butt me back in the eye. Followed by throwing up his fists and wanting to throw down. I wasn't about to fight some drunk Aussie and beat the sh*t outta him and then get thrown in jail, put on restriction, and loose rank. So I sucked it up, bought him and a beer and left. My skull was pounding he hit me good, I felt the blood running in my sinuses and my nose swelled up. Doc said I cracked my nose and bled into my sinuses and bruised the bone of my eye socket. What a bitch of a week that was....
    I forgot what haMFened underway in between Australia and New Caledonia. But I bet it was retarded...
    Next port was New Caledonia, French owned Micronesia. It was expensive. It’s started off and finished right, one of the few ports that do. Started off with a wine and cheese tasting tour, that was very beautiful. We got to see the sights of NC and drink some rich and delicious wine while doing so, along with bread and cheese. I though I was gonna be constipated after eating so much cheese but I think the wine and excess of beer after helped with that in some miraculous way. I had my Zen on me at the time loaded with music and porn, yes porn... But the kicker was David wanted to see the new stuff and I showed him, well the French guy who was serving us wine and bread saw the pictures. He was a middle aged man about, 50-60, had a stomach on him and a very heavy French accent when he spoke. He saw the pictures and started to stomp his foot muttering "La-la-la-laaa" and it was very entertaining. I busted my gut once he started to point at the pictures and say very loudly "You know I love these American sluts, so much better then the French sluts. Love them. Beautiful" with a heavy French accent of course.
    After the wine and cheese, David and I started to explore and meet up with our other shipmates and have a blast. The French were very nice, and some were very touchy which kinda creped me out. I know your saying "But on the ship you guys do some borderline gay stuff." Yeah that’s true, but I do know my guys are married and its all fun and games, also they are not gonna hop into my rack. We were all bought round after round of beer and shots; I had like 8 beers and too many shots. Dear God, I was about to enter the hurt locker and just lose everything. We headed to a club called "Jet 7" where you could dance your heart out, and they had striMFer poles. It was a pretty sick club. Only problem it was all sailors and few other people, but we still danced. Until my stomach told me abandon ship. You ever get so drunk your to a point where you body says "Look dude, either you keep drinking and shits gonna get worse, or head to the bathroom and purge."? I was having one of those moments, so I headed to the bathroom and began purging everything from lunch to dinner to everything I have ingested. Man it was a nasty orange and brown color and I kept spewing all over the toilet and floor, but it didn't stop there. I have about 8-10 volleys of spew and by the 5 the blood vessels in my nose broke open, so blood was pouring out. There were massive amounts of blood and puke on the wall, the floor, and the toilet. It looked like someone was being stabbed while puking. I remember feeling bad for whoever had to clean this place so I ATTEMPTED to clean up after myself. I unrolled some toilet paper and started wiping; only problem is the paper was cheap and it just smeared and broke down in my hand. To top it off it puked again where I wiped, yeah... progress...
    After controlling the bleeding and puking I walked out and David knew my condition and took me home (ship).
    The next day, I didn’t have a hangover... but I did take my vitamins and drank plenty of water. It was the last day, so we headed out for an easy day. I had a pint of Number One, great local beer and a cigar. David had the same and we just watched the on goers and stray cats. It was funny we had one of them jump on to our table and pet him, he was pretty cool. I spilled some of my beer by bumping my glass the cat started to lap it up. I would have taken this bag of fur home and feed him all the cat food he wanted and he would have had drinks with me and the wife! hehe
    Now we are in Guam, and it has been very beautiful. I flew the Mrs.Fursaken out to meet me and stay at a nice hotel. It was great, loads of sex, food, and beer. What more can a sailor ask for? Nothing. If you have never been to Guam I would recommend you go. But keep in mind it is very expensive. A rockstar cost me $3.75, and meal that was 2 Bud lights and a burger with fries was $24.75. Yeah ouch. Meal for two runs about 30 bucks.
    All it all really was just me and wife taking pictures, swimming, enjoying the weather, having some drinks, went to a strip club, and had the angry loving sex. There was this one strip club we were at; it wasn't as bad as a club I been to in Dallas, Texas with a midget striMFer and another obesse midget striMFer. It was called "Vikings"; and they didn't really have their "A-Team" more like the "D-Team". StriMFer with a c-section was great to watch (ugh..), and the wife was pretty upset too, more then me really. The looks on her face made the time all worth it. Just straight disgust and disaMFointment. Oh yeah, 10 bucks for jager and redbull. Meh.
    But it all came to an end and she had to fly out, I forgot to check into the ship this morning and now I'm in trouble, but I don’t care really. I had fun with my wife and they can blow me. They might just put me on a High Risk Liberty which mean in Hong Kong I won't be able to go on liberty. Oh well, I'll just pay someone to bring food and it will be money saved. There is no new Photoshop that I want I already have CS3. So no loss.
    For those who are interested; I am re-enlisting for four more years. Already done 5 so far, but once I hit my 10 year mark I will more then likely be getting out. January 08 I will be signing on the dotted line again and saluting. But I will be re-enlisting in my hot-suit. It’s basically a suit I wear for Crash and Salvage to help disconnect battery cables, rescue crewmen, and do charlie checks (hot spots) on the downed heilo. It’s a very shiny Kevlar and aluminum suit. I already told we wife I am using the money to pay off bills and buy a new hookah for the two of us. Also on the lighter side of news, I will be picking orders next month so hopefully I can get orders back home to So-Cal or maybe even Washington State.
    Deuces!

    i had all these grandiose ideas about what i would write in this blog. Yet now that it comes to writing them they all seem rather trite and boring. fuck it. i was going to delve into the social problems of American media coverage of the war in iraq. seeing as that might be a wee bit too weighty for the music im listening to, ill just talk about the music.

    My favorite artists to listen to while smoking hookah are DJ Shadow and Thievery corporation.
    if you arent familiar with their work heres what you need to know.
    DJ shadow is an electronic musician who has helped pioneer a sort of chilled out house/ambient/trip hop style of electronica. its calming and easy to use as background music, but its until youve listened carefully to the music that you will see the true brilliance in the music. Its like the best chillout music youve ever listened to, subtle but complex. hip but not loud or outrageous. just brilliantly crafted songs that are perfect to just vibe with. Shadow is actually a guinness book of world record holder for producing the first album that was entirely sampled (preemptive strike.) NOTE: not all shadow songs are created equal. he has an equal number of unimpressive ones on each album. its a shame really since listening all the way through an album isnt that great of an experience. oh well you cant have everything.
    Essential DJ Shadow tracks (you really need these)

    -off the album preemptive strike:
    what does your soul look like (part 2)
    what does your soul look like ( part 1)
    organ donor (extended overhaul)
    -off the album endtroducing
    building steam with a grain of salt
    stem long stem
    midnight in a perfect world

    thatll give you a good start on shadow. his album the private press has some brilliant tracks but theyre less chill and therefore not as good for hookah smoking

    Thievery corporation: these guys are practically made for hookah smoking. they blend easter sounds with chill ambient house style techno. super good. my favorite to listen to while smoking. get every album!
    but notable tracks include
    off of the album The Richest Man in Babylon(their best imo)
    Facing east
    un simple histoire
    meu destino
    Exilio
    From Creation
    The Richest Man in Babylon (god this track is unbelievable)
    the state of the union

    On second thought... get the entire album. richest man in babylon is a brilliant album.
    mirror conspiracy is also a brilliant album
    as is the cosmic game.

    So i've done some testing with both the vortex bowl and the funnel bowl. Seemed like the vortex bowl kept the juices in the bowl and smoked longer than a funnel bowl. What do you guys think? Have you tried any of those bowls yet?

    You know, its funny. I never imagined I'd be on a hookah forum, with its own BLOG system! Wonderful the way things work sometime. I can honestly say I've met better people on this forum, than I have from either vampirefreaks, OR myspace. Brilliant.

    I'm sitting here, watching the Boondocks, reading "What's So Amazing About Grace", and smoking a wonderful bowl of After Nine.
    They just said on the Boondocks that Christmas was originally a Pagan holiday. I must read up on that after I'm done with this book...

    I think somebody just ordered a load of books for me on Amazon actually. o_o; My wishlist is public, but I don't think my parents know how to use a computer that well...

    I look forward to using this blog I think.

    I know I may come off as "disrespectful" to those who may be older and reading this. If there are any people in their 50s who are reading this, please hear me out.

    I have noticed that no matter what generation of older people there is, there are always some who are always saying there is something "wrong" with the next generation. They always say the younger generation has no (fill in the blank). I have had older people talk down to me for no aMFarent reason, but they want me to respect them. If my memory serves me correct, you have to give respect to get respect. Therefore, if an older person is behaving condescending, arrogant or stupid, then regardless of their age, they are entitled to get what's coming to them.

    They never, ever offer any solutions to the problem and
    in a lot of cases, they are very condescending when they talk to younger
    people. It's the same as a person telling someone they need a new jacket. I can bet the person in need already knows they need a new jacket, but they don't have any money to get it. The person who is stating something very obvious never ever offers any solution to the problem, nor do they offer any help. The person speaking to the one in need just takes it upon themselves to state the obvious. THAT type of behaviour is what's wrong with everybody. The older generation was never about attempting to fix the problem. They just pass it down to the younger generation. The younger generation is expected to fix whatever problem that was inherited to them, plus deal with their own problems. It doesn't help when the older generation is expecting the younger generation to take care of the elders when the elders haven't equiped the younger generation to do so. It's the same as an older relative leaving a whole bunch of bills and debt behind, and expecting the younger generation to fix their mess. The younger generation has to feed, house, and clothe themselves, and the older generation is too busy hating, and cussing out the younger generation because they FAILED to prepare the young for what lies ahead.

    Another thing that bothers me about some older people is that as soon as they reach that "age of wisdom" (whatever that age is), they automatically assume they are wise, and intelligent. Nobody can tell them what to do because they have "lived, and seen it all". They act like they don't have to learn anymore because they have reached this "all knowing state". Unfortunately, this mentality is destructive, and doesn't allow a person to continue growing. People learn and grow for as long as they are living. If a person stops growing, they allow themselves to become short sighted and narrow minded. The sad thing is that a lot of older people aren't willing to see that this behaviour is adding another nail to the coffin of a dead future.

    If old people would actually extend a hand, try to see past their age, and realize they know damn well they used to be young , dumb, and only cared about what was going on back when they were growing up, then they can actually make a difference with the next generation. If they take off their blinders, and actually SPEAK TO the next generations instead of speaking AT them, then things can really change. THEY are the problem because THEY are the ones who are suMFosed to be teaching the youth. All they did is talk down to, belittle, and chastise the young, and now they want to be all disgruntled and angry because the youth won't listen. I don't care how old somebody is; nobody wants to listen to a person who is always cussing them out, calling them dumb and talking down to them. I don't want to listen to that, so why should somebody else expect me to. That's common sense.

    Anyway, if the elders would extend a hand, and actually talk TO the youth instead of talking at them, then maybe, we will listen, and it might be for the better. Until then, the saga will continue to get worse and worse.

    I'm looking for one of the handmade unglazed clay heads they use in Saudi Arabia. It has a big hole in the middle and splay out almost in a flat surface and you pack the tobacco around the hole. Does anyone know where to find these? If someone could direct me to a place that ships them to the US, I could definatly get at least 20 people to order them and more to come. I hope to hear back from someone soon!

    When I first started smoking, I thought wow. hookah is great. I can finally smoke something that taste great, keeps me relaxed, and keeps me social with my friend. Boy did I know there's so much more to smoking hookah. Everything makes a difference. The pipes, the coals, the shisha, the flavors, even the water makes a difference. In the future I hope to write some articles on all this stuff at my site Hookah Lounge Reviews.
