    Looking For Quality Syrian

Scoop, can you recommend a quality Syrian then? I have a KM and love it; I'm looking to get a Syrian. I would prefer the feel of a solid stem.

    Looking For Quality Syrian

    I saw the AF hookah - and I also saw that they improved a lot on them (downstem, removable 2nd tray, etc). However, it still doesn't have a solid brass downstem. Does anyone still sell these?
  4. I've been out of the forum loop for a while but I am back and needing some advice. I apologize for not using the search feature - I'm not sure the results would answer the specific question I have. I also apologize in advance for possibly mentioning a banned vendor; I just would like to be as specific as possible in describing the hookah I am looking for. I am looking for a solid brass stem Syrian like the ones sold by a banned vendor a year or so back. I am looking for a teardrop base if that design is still out there. I liked the stems that came apart in several pieces for easier storage/cleaning. Are there any good vendors out there that have something like this now? Thanks in advance! Austin
  5. I used to just "let it air dry"... but the water droplets won't go away inside the stem. To be effective, you need to get a coat hanger and push a bit of paper towel through the stem. However, air drying the outside is fine.

    Limit Help Please

    in order to prove it, you have to use the squeeze theorem... you can't just say sqrt(x) goes to 0 and it's multiplied to the whole limit goes to 0. the limit may not exist... for squeeze thm: [i'm going to use "<" but it's really less than or equal to] we know -1 < sin(pi/x) < 1 so e^-1 < e^sin(pi/x) < e^1 so sqrt(x)*e^-1 < sqrt(x)*e^sin(pi/x) < sqrt(x)*e and since we know the limit of the outside functions -> 0, it "squeezes" our function to 0 as well.

    not quite... you can't divide by 0.

    yea.. use the squeeze theorem.. try the parameters: 1/e <= e^sin(pi/x) <= e
