  4. Buying Foreclosed Homes.....

    QUOTE (delSol_si @ Sep 9 2009, 10:25 AM) Like I said in chat, a lot of people who are having their homes foreclosed on trash it before they leave...to spite the bank and the next owners. Be prepared to do a lot of repairs. This isn't always the case, but just think about it, you have been working your ass off (or stealing your ass off) to buy this home. The bank is going to seize it, leaving you without a home or any of the equity that you should have built up, all that money that you have sunk into the home is now gone, never to be seen again, you have to start all over, only this time with shitty credit. On top of that, remember that sub-prime interest rate that bank gave you that shot up? Ya, that'll piss you off. If you are pissed off about losing your home, most people will make it as hard as they can on the bank and the next buyers, as in they take out the frustration on the home. I'm not saying this is always the case, but just think about it. Foreclosures can be good deals if you find the right one, I'm just saying be cautious and check out the home, make sure you have a good thorough inspection done. fcbayern is correct, this is still a buyers market, so there are plenty of good deals out there. My parents moved last year when the housing market was even worse and they were only about to get about 70% of what the home is actually worth in a normal market. He is also correct that location is everything. My parents moved to a smaller, crappier, older house and paid twice as much just because of the location. I know a guy that got foreclosed on and he poured cement in every drain in the house. So before you buy a foreclosed house check the drains No telling how much it would cost to fix since all the pipes are running through the foundation.
  5. Worst Buzz Ever

    from what I gathered thru the IM's it appears he was using too much heat and scorching the bowl and the shisha.
  6. QUOTE (frost91 @ Sep 7 2009, 01:45 PM) hahah boho. she is pregnant. i am free to smoke whenever she isnt. but then she'l prob ban it because of the kid. as for banning something of hers, i wish i could ban her RTB. RIGHT TO BITCH. but shes pregnant and i have the short end of the stick. Oh well. life sucks. im gonna try cementing that miniphunnel, but god knows how awful my craftmanship skills are. Yep, you're screwed. I had to get rid of my parrots when babies came. Now that babies are no longer babies I still can't have parrots in the house. It turned ot the evil Ms. Scalli never liked the parrots (and they damn sure felt the same way!!!!) and the babies was just an excuse I wish I had some good advice for you but until I have parrots again my advice would pretty much suck
  7. Explain To Parents

    QUOTE (HookahJohn @ Sep 7 2009, 07:14 AM) do your best to get them to join you in this hobby, show them and offer them, more people come around than not, smoking with the parents is good thing. if they're afraid this could lead to NHT, have them sign up on the forum and post something about NHT and see how fast they get banned Just kidding on trying that ut as a parent if I was not already familiar with the culture the forum endorses I would be pretty leary about it. A local hookah lounge woud be the best place to take them especially if you have one that serves mediterranian dishes and has a pretty tradional theme as well. Sorry, I haven't read the whole thread so some of the points may already be covered.
  8. regular milk seems to foam up more and the problem with that at least in my QT is the foam would get into the hose
  9. I have not had good results with anything other than coconut milk which has worked great.
  10. Worst Buzz Ever

    dang, that sucks Liq. I soak mine in olive oil but I wipe it off really good before I load it. I'm really wondering what you got when you went to Home Depot along with the o-ring? Like I told you in the email I really need to post an update on how I smoke with the bowl now. I'll go ahead and ost it here and make a vid later. I nixed the phunnel mod and use the conventional method with an additional strainer for the coal. I loosely fill the shisha to the top and put the coal strainer on the top and push it down until the rim of the strainer and bowl are even. I break up a 33mm 3 King after getting it going pretty hot and put the chunks in the strainer. It's sorta similar to packing Tangiers, or at least closer than the way I was doing it. Also just like with Tangs I noticed if I let the coals sit in the strainer a couple or few minutes it smokes a lot better. I can't remember who originally figured that out with Tangs but I found it worked. I manage the ashing by just dumping the bowl into the ash tray. The strainer fits could enough not to pop out so you just put fresh coal chunks back in and keep smoking.
  11. Msnbc/ge Lib Media Bias... Er, Again

    I agree that Rush is an idiot but you should never underestimate an idiot. All the nutcases that are hanging on his every word take him seriously. Nutcases change history. Lee Harvey Oswald. Timothy McVeigh. So for you to make out people like Rush cannot have an impact just because only a fraction of the society listens to him is not very accurate according to history. And I really don't care about what rightwingers think. I just think their words should not go uncountered. There are lurkers that watch arguments and form opinions sometimes based on the arguments they witness. Naive yes, but no need to sit idley by and let rightwingers screaming at town halls appear to be right. Call them bitches out on the carpet.

You spend your days whining about crap like this and forgetting about how badly your repub homies whacked shit up when they had full control. Get the hell over it. Quit being Sorelosermans. We saw exactly how great your ideaologies played out and we're having to try and get over that. You're pissed we get it and we really don't give a fuck. Do you ever do anything productive or just whine? Calm down Scalli, your whining Unless you can counter my remarks by disproving them all you have is a lameass remark. Hell, the repubs got their asses beat, nothing to whine about here. I like to pour a little salt into rightwing wounds though

  15. More Healthcare Nonsense!

    Hear is a great video of him recovering from surgery and going off about the healthcare system. This guy is completely braindead. Lately he's talked about Obama is trying to mess up the best healthcare system in the world. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bX1rLv_hNeI
