  1. [quote name='Codename067' date='06 February 2010 - 09:03 PM' timestamp='1265508197' post='450125'] [quote name='mushrat' date='06 February 2010 - 08:39 AM' timestamp='1265474346' post='450062'] Now listen VERY carefully. If someone finds an old thread that they have something to add to, then *I* see no problem bringing it back. It obviously was interesting enough that people began adding to the thread. So, Let US do the moderating and YOU all can add to a thread if you want or ignore it if you want. But flaming people who bring up an old thread will NOT be tolerated. Very clear? [/quote] Crystal Clear. I guess next time, I'll just get annoyed with out writing about it...perhaps kick my dog a few times..lol jk [/quote] Gotcha... I'll just have to compensate by flaming my roommates on our white board...
  2. [quote name='Sonthert' date='05 February 2010 - 06:57 AM' timestamp='1265371056' post='449868'] Blue Gum Ball always smells weird. I would advise that you, in the future, don't acclimate it on a separate sheet. Some guys get good results like this, other people have nothing but problems. Pretend its like any other sheesha and go from there. [/quote] Yeah, with BGB you kinda gotta assume it has achieved acclimation cuz it'll always smell kinda burnt, the only way I can tell is to smoke it... but when you do.... om nom nom...
  3. My Hookah

    I'll go ahead and propose that OP was originally formulating a hookah-themed cover of the Black Eyed Peas smash single, "My Humps"
  4. Also, the freezing process is a crystallization process. The slower the freezing occurs, the larger the crystals, and the more it damages the material. This is why if you try freezing, say, fresh strawberries at home, they'll taste like ass once thawed, but commercially purchased frozen berries (which they flash freeze rapidly and much lower temperatures than are available in the average home fridge) will taste more palettable once thawed. The same would apply to shisha.
  5. Jasmine Anyone?

    I've only had jasmine once age hated it... but I think it may have just been prepared wrong because it was at a lounge and I really didnt think it tasted anything like jasmine. I think I'll have to get some again soon though, because I love both jasmine tea and rose shisha.
  6. Anti Hookah Sentiment

    I read through her site. It's basically just a textbook single-minded alertist. Have you ever heard of Jack Thompson, the infamous Florida lawyer who led a crusade for years, suing videogame developers for corrupting society and fighting for severe censorship in games using falsified statistics, extremely prejudiced alertist claims and accusations, and basically condemning the industry for profiteering off of mind-washing children? Yeah, he got disbarred. This bitch is the same way. She's making ignorant claims and embellishing any possible concerns about the business to a fanatical extent. Middle-schoolers aren't getting in, they won't be peddling drugs... I mean, why would someone act so cruelly and dishonestly? Just to make a point? To say she "got her way?" Because she has some uncompromising grudge with the collective concept of "smoking?" Reminds me of Hitler's motivations and techniques (propaganda). She must feel so noble...
  7. To be honest, I've seen a lot of these "impossible to acclimate" claims, and I'm starting to wonder if a large number of them could be due to errors in production (not to knock Eric or Tangiers at all; quality management is complicated, especially on a product as delicately formulated as Tangiers, and on relatively small-scale production). Is it possible that the occassional batch has too much of one factor which makes acclimation in certain climates just unfeasible? Or maybe just the climate during the shisha's production could have an impact?
  8. [quote name='Codename067' date='01 February 2010 - 09:22 PM' timestamp='1265077360' post='449038'] One time, I was comletely out of Phunnels, some broke, some were lost, so I took out the largest Egyptian bowl I could find and turned it into a Phunnel using nothing but foil, and it worked like a charm! Now other than that, there is absolutely no need to do it. I don't understand how it's going to make the hookah smoother..that like people saying putting Vodka in the base instead of water will get you drunk...:face_palm: [/quote] Well, alcohol is volatile, so it readily dissipates into air if given the opportunity. Now, whether you can get drunk off of the inhalation of alcohol fumes is a matter I know nothing about, but I imagine over the length of a hookah session, that would do... something or other...
  9. A Shout Out

    [quote name='Punx Clever' date='30 January 2010 - 03:41 PM' timestamp='1264884075' post='448574'] [quote name='cnygaard' date='30 January 2010 - 02:58 PM' timestamp='1264881532' post='448568'] Nakhla is at Amused now?!??! That's awesome! Do they carry the Mizo line too? I'll talk with the owner about getting CHQLs there too! [/quote] Not a complete line up... but yes. [/quote] Whaaat? Since when? Clayton, do you know this guy? Cuz I need to arrange a meeting. So I can give him a hug. We can do it at amused and kill 2 birds with one stone.

I've corrupted her [/quote] Mine is actually the same way, but about sex... sounds weird, but tbh, a lot of the time I'd rather be smoking -.- lol [/quote] wow you are so gay [/quote] That, and people severely underestimate my laziness... but I know, it's inexcusable. [/quote] those who have never had a girlfriend that was "easily excited" wouldn't understand but I do. Had a girlfriend that was 3+ times a day everyday. I broke up with her cause I had stopped seeing any friends. Sometimes a nice smoke is better. The pipe never judges. Ray [/quote] all but one of my gfs have been "easily excited"...and i still don't understand!! [/quote] I'm also dual degreeing in Actuarial Science and Film Studies at a Big Ten school, so between 21 credits, calculating piles of balance sheets/risk assessment/derivative markets, and 18hr days on a production set... AND managing my own media company... sometimes I'm just too busy/exhausted to sacrifice 3 of my 6 hours of sleep because she's insatiable -.- one and done, for me. ...I suddenly feel like I'm in therapy or something... ...also feel kinda bad for hijacking this thread... So back on topic: the only naked I've had so far is sweet melon, mizo orange, mizo gum and mizo mint. The mint and gum were pretty awesome, orange was okay, and I just can't seem to decide about the sweet melon. I generally LOVE melon flavors, and this definitely tasted like cantaloupes... but it just felt... awkward, it was an uncomfortable flavor. Like helping my sister choose a bra for her senior prom... it was entirely innocent, but somehow just felt wrong... maybe that contributes to the other issues I've been having... Anyway, Congrats on getting back on the hookah wagon!
  11. I love mizo mint alone, but af mint I just use as a mixer
  12. I was thinking about wadding up some foil and packing it at the bottom of my phunnel to conserve shisha... has anyone tried this or anything similar (in regard to making the phunnel more shallow)?
