    Rant: Big Business Bs

    [size=3]This is my rant. I hate bullshit, read at your own discretion. [/size] [b] [size=3]The news just did a piece about an investment firm and their 401k program. Due to "the economy" the firm stopped doing a company match, but now the employees can be thankful because they just announced that they will once again start matching the employees contributions. Well I call bullshit on this one. They stopped matching the contributions because they can. Because the economy is where it is, there are ten qualified people just waiting to replace the first person who makes a peep about 401k contributions. And the new person will get hired on and never be eligible for a company match anyway, so it's a win win for the company. And the reason they decided to start matching the contributions again? Well how would it look if they cut the company match and then in January started cutting those big bonus checks for the CEO and others running the show? It would look like shit. So magically, here in December, "Surprise! We are going to match your contributions again!" Fuck big business using bullshit excuses to cop out and cut corners, saving them money while costing the ones who do all the work.[/size][/b]

    Rant: Big Business Bs

    I couldn't disagree more. As a former employee of Bank of America, I have witnessed time and again where the economy excuse was used to maximize profits at the cost of the lower employees. All this took place in a year where we made exceptional profits despite having to pay out on very large lawsuits.

    Bees Attracted To Hookah?

    I know the bee-otches love my hookah!
  4. Double pears aren't hard to find, but I think many have missed the point. The kid is looking for a 2 hose double pear.
  5. Your picture shows at least a 3 hose actually.
  6. Come on, it's only $20. Buy it and sell it if you don't like it.
  7. That's a T-rex in a fighter jet. Chreeeses pteradactyl is in trouble.

    Selling Hookahs/tobacco Online

    Unless you sell tobacco you won't need a tobacco license. I wonder how successful a site would be without selling shisha. Although with accessories, coals and hookahs I am sure you could do well.

    I got my Mya Gyro in from Stuie today. Wow, does this thing look awesome. I had an idea that Stuie took good care of his stuff, but this thing is like new. If you need a hookah, definitely look at what few Stuie has left!
  10. [quote name='mustang67n' timestamp='2320866733' post='530957'] I've dont this at a local bar I frequent as well. here though, smoking is aloud inside, so we set up next to the fireplace in the "lounge area" had myself and 14 other friends in there taking shots of jager with DA in my QT.. had a blast and made my friend (the bartender) a lot of money that night. he and the manager have asked me to come back with more hookahs multiple times.. definitely fun [/quote]That's what I'm talking about, where is my invite?

    [quote name='Chreees' timestamp='1320805404' post='530848'] [quote name='littlec' timestamp='1320802728' post='530843'] [quote name='Chreees' timestamp='1320795085' post='530826'] Nice! I really hate how they use the tiny hose ports and purges now... You wouldn't happen to know where to find the nice Nawras brass trays with the etchings on them, would you? That's the only part I don't like about my Nawras- the tray is too plain! [/quote] I have some lol but sadly I'm not letting go of them and well they wouldn't work anyways on a screw top syrian. What you can do, and I highly recommend it as I'm looking to do it myself is buy a brass serving tray (you can find them all over the web and some are pretty swanky) and drill a hole through the center to fit over the threading on the top of your hookah. Boom nice big ass tray for your hookah and it's one of a kind, they have all sizes out there so you can pretty much go as big or as small as you want. [/quote] Cool, good looking out. Yeah, I would need the screw-on kind for sure. Any links to the serving trays? [/quote][url="http://bit.ly/sF1Qrt"]http://bit.ly/sF1Qrt[/url]

    Impatient Me...

    Since you want a 2 hose you will want a Mya. If I were you, I would wait until one comes up for sale on the forums. I actually just bought a nice 29" Mya off Stuie on here, should be here tomorrow.
  15. Ah, well then you have to get dave in order. Strengthen the pimp hand.
  16. Let's get you guys some diffusers for the reviews.
  17. Hampton Roads Magazine LOL. The cops out there are straight dicks, I finally just stopped paying all the stupid tickets and now I can't drive in VA (kind of a blessing). About the only thing to do was cruise up and down the beach, and there is even a law against that.

    Impatient Me...

    Hell yeah, although that is a beast of a hookah. I wanted one a while back, but now I have settled on a slightly smaller Mya cloisinne pipe. Nice find though.
