  1. I'm back after many years playing around as a vaper. Does not look like much has changes except that there is way less people here. Glad to see tangiers is still around. I knew I should have kept my gear.

    Soex Orange Setup: Cheapo chinese hookah, tangiers small phunnel bowl, quick lite coal Appearance: wood splinters...wetted down with koolaid Smell: Very stron overwellming orange. I could even smell it when I opened my mailbox to pull my sample out. Taste: Hmmm...Very strong at first, but quickly settled into a very faint orange tic tac kinda flavor Smoke: damn plumes and plumes of smoke! Seriously this stuff produced more smoke than anything I have ever seen. Buzz:No nicotine buzz at all (of course it's not tobacco!) Overall: 5/10 (due to lack of buzz) If someone does not want to smoke tobacco for some reason this stuff would be great in which case I would give it a 8/10! No wood chip flavor as the previous reviewer stated in my sample. I would like to thank Smoky 2 Tymes for the free sample and the oppertunity to try this stuff out. Honestly it's not something I would purchase because I love my tobacco buzz, but I found it pleasent none the less.

    Nakhla Cherry Setup: MYA QT Smell: Cherry candy flavor: Cherry nyquil....rather harsh Smoke: Huge clouds...but VERY harsh. I even removed coals and foil to see if I was burning the tobacco and I was not. I struggled through this for 20 minutes before deciding even if it was not harsh I would hate the nyquil taste. BTW the nyquil taste was not just my opinion, my wife concured that was what she tasted too. The smoke was harsh to the point of causing me to cough. This was a horrid experience. overall: 1/10 only because it did smoke

    Tangiers Watermelon Setup- Mya QT with small Phunnel bowl Cut- Almost looks like beachnut chewing tobacco with molasses all over it Smell- Watermelon and something else? I don't know what the something else was Smoke- One pull to get it started and then it smoked in burn the house down clouds! Flavor- Watermelon gum. Pretty strong flavored. Duration- More than 3 hours Buzz-I'm a heavy smoker but this kicked me in the butt with a very heavy buzz that lasted the whole smoke Overall- 10/10 Perfect as far as I am concerned. Perfect flavor, perfect buzz, perfect amount of smoke.
  5. Easy-Lite Japanese Charcoal. Black and orange box. by Rolland Charcoal company. Great coal. Lights fast. No flavor if you blow the silver cover off after the coal is hot. Very easy to manage these coals. If smoking at home I throw them on my butane burner for 3 minutes and they are ready. If smoking away from home I hold one black end over my zippo for 1 minute and place in the ashtray for 5 minutes and they are ready. Great price on these coals too $5.79 for a box of 96 at a local store.
  6. Rolland instant lites. Ok I bought a roll of 10 for 99 cents just to see what they were like. Not very good. Slow to light and give off a horrendous smell until fully lit. They sometimes pop and explode(wow that was exciting). They also sometimes randomly decide to give off a gunpowder taste when smoking. They burn down very quickly compared to the Easy-lite by the same brand. These things are NOT the answer for convenience. I would rather die of a nicotine fit than ever buy another roll of these things again!

    Layalina Cherry Setup- Standard Mya QT Coals- japanese quicklites cut- fine cut, but some fairly large pieces in there. Smell- Cherry candy taste- Very strong flavor of a cherry candy. Sorry I can't quite figure the exact candy, but this is a winner. Smoke thickness- nice thick clouds of white smoke. Buzz- slight Length of session- About a hour and then I had to run to the store with my wife. Looked at it when I got back home but it was smoke fairly well so I didn't bother to have another go at it.
  8. Does anyone know where you can buy beedis online? I smoked them 14 years ago and would like some and can't seem to find any in the local tobacco shops. I did a google search and all I can find is anti-smoking info about how harmful they are. Surely there must be places selling them online?

    Dog Owners

    QUOTE (hmpitags2006 @ Mar 12 2007, 11:43 PM) Boston terriers are my favorite little dog. Also mutts are cool, and I would get one from the ASPCA.+1 on getting a dog from the humane society! That's where I got my English Foxhound cross, and he is the most loving dog you'll ever meet because he apreciates his life more than most dogs do.

    Dog Owners

    Rat terrier. Small and spunky enough to take on a large dog. Nice short hair so they don't shed all over the place and they are very clean little dogs. Great little manly man dogs. And sweet as hell.

    Help With A Scali Mod

    QUOTE (Scalliwag @ Mar 12 2007, 10:20 PM) you have to heat copper to work it. Once it is hot with the right tools you can form it. It will still split if you stretch an area too much. I still heat my mods with a torch and toss them into cold water because I think it kills off the properties that can give an off taste if it gets too hot. I use them on my small as well except for with Tangiers. It smokes better without it from my experience so far.Does MN hookah still carry them? I want one for my small phunnel, but I did not see that they had them when I ordered it...and even if they had them right now I guess it would be silly to order just the mod...
  13. Sue them! That is a rip off, and it looks disposable.
  14. QUOTE (hmpitags2006 @ Mar 12 2007, 05:09 PM) It is horrible I had it once, it gave me the worst headache ever.Oh god...I take back everything I said...it's crap. I smoked some tangiers peach directly after dinner tonight, and about then about a half hour ago decided to I needed to smoke again...So I loaded up another bowl of Soex (this time getting all the juices in the bag) to get rid of the stuff. It had a horrid chemical taste and gave me a hell of a headache. I would never willfully smoke this crap again.

    Wall In Palestine

    QUOTE Palestinian lands No such thing as Palestine so how can there be Palestinian land?
  17. QUOTE (GordonMac @ Mar 12 2007, 04:03 PM) so i take it that soex is nasty crap? Whats it taste like?The orange flavor was actually pretty good! It tasted like oranges. Didn't like the fact that it had no nicotine though...Or that you need to wear work gloves to load a bowl.
  18. QUOTE (rez @ Mar 12 2007, 03:09 PM) hahaha i think it is pretty clever that they would use pig latin. would this make soex even worse for you since you are basically smoking pure sugar?As I understand it the sugar is already removed and you are basically smoking pure cellulose. Who knows what the long term effects of that are! At least we know what tobacco causes...
  19. I managed to get a splinter when loading up a bowl with my free sample. Ugarsay anecay agassebay=a really wierd substance! Sugar cane splinters. ouch!

    Help With A Scali Mod

    QUOTE (mazultav @ Mar 11 2007, 10:44 PM) cool zero. Although I was reading one of your old posts about making them and since the 1/2" didnt fit on my phunnel I think I may have a medium. Could you whip me up one? I could cover all costs plus a little bit extra.The 1/2" doesn't fit in my small phunnel either. When I bump it up to a 3/4" it's so tall that I can't get it beat down short enough even after heating it with my torch...I'm pretty sure that you do have a small and not a medium...unless I have a medium as well. LOL

    Cigars From Local Quickie-mart!?

    If push comes to shove Backwoods...All the other ones commonly sold in gad stations taste like Sh*t. I do have a gas station about 6 blocks from my house that sells Romeo y Julietta and Punch cigars though so I guess you never know.
  22. QUOTE (Smileys Ulti @ Mar 8 2007, 09:45 PM) Here is my loaded Hookah Head. Nakhla Peach in bowl. Getting ready to smoke outside.Its 80 degrees here. LOL Smiley It was a wonderful day here in Arizona wasn't it!

    I get nice clouds from Nahkla using a small funnel and 3 jap coals at 12, 4 and 8 oclock on the bowl.

    Cobra Hoses

    Here in Phoenix you can pick up a great looking cobra hose for $6.99...and it's worth every penny as a disposable type hose...They say they are washable but I don't trust them enough to try. If it broke 10 bucks I wouldn't consider it worth the cash though...It's all about the looks and nothing else.

    Love Is?

    Love is out there you just have to find it...and then actually put the work into the relationship! I've been with my wife almost 10 years now...The best 10 years of my life I might add. But it requires work and forgiveness. I honestly think many in the younger generation may never find a happy marriage...You can't have a great marriage if your a selfish SOB who doesn't think about your spouse.
