  1. Hookah At College

    Sup dude. I used to smoke in my dorm as well. For a while my roommate and I were paranoid. But we used to wait until night when the RA's were done making their rounds of patrol, then we would smoke. We didn't even use QL's, there was a mini kitchen on the first floor and we took turns lighting the coals on the stove down there, haha. It was smooth and nothing ever went wrong, the worst thing that happened was our friend accidentally knocked a coal on the carpet, but I quickly picked it up. So basically just be very careful, and be picky about who you let in your room while smoking. You don't need any unnecessary noise or crowding in your room that would draw attention to you. As far as the smoke detector goes, we took a chance and never removed it. It didn't ever go off and didn't give us any problems. Good luck in college man, enjoy your first year.
  2. My Dad is from Baghdad and my Mother is from Basra. But our families are originally from TelkeMFe, I am Chaldean.

  3. Hey Iraqi buddy! Where in Iraq are you originally from? (Baghdadi here...)

  4. [quote name='Hassouni' timestamp='1283805411' post='481416'] Good man referring to the pipe itself as the shisha. You know what's what Where in the UK are you? [/quote] Nah if he called it Nargila, then he would REALLY know his stuff.

    [quote name='Rani' timestamp='1283734668' post='481366'] [quote name='mustafabey' timestamp='1283718778' post='481355'] Tony Blair painted Bush is a person of great simplicity. He had a job to do,a grudge to settle with Saddam and when his trusted aids gave him info, he believed it. He had no idea he was being used. Cheney, Rumsfeld, Pearl, Wolfowitz etc, they knew, they didn't care, they had a war to fight I've always felt sorry for old W, he was way out of his league. War is horror. There is no way to rationalize any of it. [/quote] Yeah, I actually felt sorry for the poor sap myself. He was so, well, pitiful. Befuddled, and unless he was heading off on vacation always had a least a faint deer-in-the-headlights expression. You just know he was the kid everybody beat the crap out of in 3rd grade , and probably never personally wanted to go into politics, but "Shut the fuck up GW, we're building a dynasty here!" overruled. He was totally and completely unequipped for the job intellectually and emotionally, and I'm sure it haunts him he ever let himself get sucked into it. Poor SOB never knew what hit him. 'Rani [/quote] I have lurked these forums a long time, and before I start I just want to say that I respect you, and your opinion. I truly do, but this is completely false. Bush Jr. was never, not once in his presidency the victim. He instigated the war with the help of his right hand man Cheney and CIA. I am a firm believer that the US perpetrated the 9/11 attack, with the motive of being able to invade the Middle East with little resistance from the American politicians and people. History has shown that fear is a dangerous and persuasive tactic, so when our president dangled the notion of WMD's and terrorists that are willing to blow themselves up on command, we as a nation bought it. I don't feel sorry for Bush and I never will. It is because of him and his corrupt regime that the Twin Towers do not exist today and why thousands of Americans have died overseas, oh yeah let's not forget about the Iraqi's and Afghani's. Many here would disagree with me, but as an Iraqi myself I can say with full confidence that my country was better before the invasion, Saddam and all. Saddam was an evil, insane, and down right nasty man; but he did one thing right, kept the muslims in line. If it weren't for him terrorist militias would have overrun the country long ago, but through his crackdowns and power mongering he kept them in line. He also kept the Christians safe, being an Iraqi Christian this was important to me and my family. He treated my people with respect and he dared not threaten us.
  6. Problems After Smoking

    If you're going for a low buzz Tobacco, stay away from Nak and AF Mint flavors. I feel like when I smoke these two straight I get a major buzz. For someone who never gets buzz's that's quite an accomplishment.
  7. [quote name='joytron' date='03 April 2010 - 09:25 PM' timestamp='1270355151' post='461762'] Stick to Al Fakher! [/quote] That's all I read and I AGREE! Stick to AF, I can always trust it.
  8. Another Way To Smoke Shisha?

    [quote name='bellydancerakn' date='02 April 2010 - 11:20 PM' timestamp='1270275623' post='461632'] So besides hookah is there another way to smoke shisha? I have 750gramms of shisha lying around while i wait for my hookah to get here. And I can't wait! Although my friend will probably let me borrow her hookah I am just wondering... [/quote] Trying to smoke the Shisha without the Hookah would be pretty bad. The smoke would be really harsh and you wouldn't enjoy it much. I wouldn't recommend trying it with any device other than a Hookah.
  9. Hookah Vs Cigz

    [quote name='ryno' date='31 March 2010 - 12:05 PM' timestamp='1270062314' post='461040'] [quote name='3uphrat3s' date='31 March 2010 - 02:26 PM' timestamp='1270060015' post='461028'] Hookah absolutely destroys my lung capacity. If I try to go for a run after smoking it's very very difficult. That's the only adverse effect I've noticed... [/quote] I think right afterwords, it might be hard to run, but from what Tyler and a few other members have shown, they smoke only hookah and with doctors visits, their lung capacity has increased. [/quote] Hmmm, that's interesting. Dunno I've noticed that after a heavy week of smoking (hookah), which is 2 bowls a day for me, running becomes really hard. But if I take a break from smoking and go for a run, it's a lot easier.

    He probably told him "Yallah ya gawad!" jk/jk!

But when it becomes borderline insulting and more-so annoying, it's not funny anymore. When I'm hanging out I don't want to be analyzing everything someone is saying trying to figure out whether they are serious or not, it get's tiring. I'm sure he's a nice guy, maybe even a great guy. More power to him, if that way of communicating has gotten him this far, he must be a master of his sarcastic craft. But I'm sure he's lost plenty of life-long customers, I know I'm one of them. [/quote] You don't need to analyze. Just grow a thicker skin. And I say that as someone who had to learn the hard way, life is just generally easier when you worry less if something is directed at you and what it means if it was. Still got a few thin spots, but more and more often it's becoming like water off a ducks back. And life gets correspondingly less stressful. I mean, you gave up something you like out of wondering what was going on in his head. Tell him he's being a pain in the ass and take another hit off the pipe and move on. He's a big boy. He can take it. 'Rani [/quote] Yeah I guess you are correct. But I've been fine without Tangiers this long, I think I can live without it. If I'm ever in the SD area I might stop by again, but for now I'll stick to my current routine.

  14. Maybe I've been to Eric's lounge when he's having bad days or something, because every time I go I get nothing but sarcasm and snide remarks. That's basically why I stopped buying Tangiers.
  15. AF Lemon with AF mint is a very good combination. To the person who said AF Lemon is a miss you didn't smoke it correctly. As for the problems the OP is having, my guess if you have a bad batch. AF needs very little acclimation, if any at all.
