  1. Does that include shipping? I may be interested in the pico and saucer. I love my pico so I'm thinking I'll want to have a back up just in case
  2. Room temp allows you to know quicker whether you are burning your bowl or not, which then can make the bowl last longer and better flavor throughout.
  3. I noticed this when I moved to a smaller, closed room. What I have found to help it is I got a portable air filter and I put it on high while I'm smoking and leave it that way until I no longer smell it. It also helped to keep the door open while the filter was going but that has been tough due to my 1 year old daughter always wanting in that room...so I try to leave it open over night while we are sleeping to move the air around better. Prior to me smoking in the small closed room, I never noticed the smell linger like I do now.
  4. I think most of us are partial to phunnel bowls. What's nice about the phunnel bowls is you can get smaller ones that don't need as much tobacco as the Vortex. So unless you are wanting to always sit down and finish a vortex bowl (I want to say around 35g? iirc, and the pico phunnel is more around 10-15g iirc), I'd go with the phunnel. You can choose your sizes...I have 3, pico, 7ico, and the small. All great for different scenarios.
  5. If you want, you should contact my brother. My brother and his 3 buddies did a documentary where they biked (bicycles) halfway across the country for a summer and couch surfed along the way. He's a filming major so you could ask him what you did...or ask him to come with you as he is into that stuff and would love to do the film and film editing for it. Just let me know and I can get you in contact with him or show you his youtube channel.
  6. ​Dibs.
  7. It could be the quick lites and CO. Are you packing the tobacco up to the foil? It should be touching to reduce the CO (some).
  8. Surprised more people aren't buying from him. Great prices, great discounts for bulk buying. Just ordered a crap ton of coals and a few things of nak. Took 3 days to get to me, even in the crap weather he has up there. Very fast at getting the order out after placing it. I'll continue to buy from him!
  9. I also got headaches...but that changed when I started fixing my digestion (mega doses of probiotics from supplements and homemade kefir).
  10. So if you didn't smoke, you'd be constipated? That sounds like a digestive issue to me.
  11. Did your sensitivity start before you started smoking hookah? Like, have you always had this issue since you were a kid? Or did it develop after you started smoking hookah (just like anything, it could have taken months to years to develop depending on your health prior to you starting and your health choices while you've been smoking)?
  12. Anyone notice any sort of digestive issues since starting hookah? Including, but not limited to: Heart burn/indigestion/GERD, excessive gas (belching, farting, bloating)  Constipation Diarrhea IBS/Crohns/etc Candidiasis (doubt many here have looked into this though)   I've done some research but I don't think all the research is out there right now, thus why I'm asking for community input. I have a feeling tobacco or nicotine can mess with the gut flora, causing many of the above issues. Some research suggest that it does mess with the beneficial bacteria, which creates worse symptoms in those with IBS but helps those with Ulcerative Colitis. Research also links parents who smoke to colic symptoms in babies (and I know some of you here have kids now, did your child have colic?????) This got me thinking about those of us without those "major issues" and that it may be causing slightly lesser symptoms that we pass off as "normal" (I put normal in quotes as some people think that if something is common, it is normal...it is not).   I'm interested in getting feedback on this and if anything has helped these symptoms (foods, supplements?).
  13. Quite sad how dead this site has become due to adrock not fixing the search engine issue.

      I don't block shit. You'd have to talk to Adrock about all that.

      I'm just saying what I do on my site. If the bot agent isn't defined in the ACP, they will show up as guests on the site, making us think that there are actually humans browsing.

      Ah, gotcha.
  14. I believe the One just dropped the price to $350. MS is running a deal where you can trade in a 360 for $100 towards a One...thus making the One $250!   I'm quite impressed with the One. I use it mostly as a media device. Only got it for the Master Chief Collection but am happy with the media abilities (supports MKV file format and with my set up, I can now stream my shows from my computer to the One without having to transfer to an external and hook it up to my WDTV Live like I've been doing).
  15. Yeah, my wife and I do. Haven't dove in quite a while though. I think the last time was in the Virgin Islands about 4 years ago I think.
